Those are beautiful pictures and at least you'll have those and the good times together to cherish. I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you, all of you. I can't even begin. I keep reading your posts over and over again.

Oh no, Nolu, I am so, so sorry. :( *hugs* You did absolutely everything you could for him, including making a compassionate decision based on HIS well being. My immediate reaction was to call you, but I don't know if you're up for talking right now, so just know this: if you need someone to talk to, I'm here for you.
Thank you. <3 That's not how it feels right now, when I woke up and the house is cold and empty, but I know you're right. There were a couple of times I was afraid to let him out of the crate, and when we took a trip to Rifle and he refused to come hiking with us, that was my wake-up call. "Nope, I'm good in the car, thanks. I don't want to roll in mud and eat poop and trip you. Have fun on your own!"

If you want to come over Wednesday I would really love that. C will be in Utah for work, and he doesn't want me to be alone.

F*ck.
I am so so so sorry.

I feel privileged to get to meet him and get Middie kisses. I'm sorry he and Payton didn't get along but Payton hates most boy dogs so it wasn't personal.
I'm so glad you got to meet him, too. He was a bit of a nightmare the day you met him, and the fact that you still liked him amazed me. TBH, I think he started it with baby P first.

Oh, Nolu...words can not express how sad and sorry I am.
(((((((((HUGS)))))))))))) That's why I did pictures. I'm somewhere in between numb and crying.

I'm heartbroken for you. I didn't realize where the thread was when I clicked on it. And I still can't believe it.

:(

I'm so sorry.
I still can't, either. The house is empty. The vets were all so supportive, and they've been there with me through a lot of the issues, and they reaffirmed that it was the right decision, but emotionally? I feel like I left my dog on the floor at the vets office. I really feel like I let him down, like why couldn't I just keep him in a crate for the next two years so he'd be safe!? It's not logical at all, it's just how I feel.

Just keep telling yourself that it isn't logical, that you made the absolute best/safest decision for him. You would've felt bad having him in a crate for two years when the end came. I know emotions don't care about logic but I find when I keep repeating the same stuff to myself over and over it eventually sinks in.

Major hugs.

I'm so sorry. He too, was one of my favorite dogs, and he couldn't of had a better life with anyone else. It may seem unreasonable, but in the end, it was the right decision(and, I know, you would choose the best for him.). I wish I could do more, but for now, if you ever need to talk, feel free to PM me.

Wonderful pictures, by the way!

((((((((Hugs))))))))))))

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

So, so, so sorry. Worst decision ever to have to make, but you kept life fair for him at the end.

RIP Middie. You were a gorgeous boy.

I'm so sorry :( I didn't have the privilege of meeting him, but I always enjoyed Middie threads. I don't think he could have had a better home, filled with adventure and mutual respect.

If you ever need to talk, feel free to shoot me a PM... I know EXACTLY how you feel. Some days I go, "well should I have just kept her drugged for a few more days? weeks? could I have bought her more time? Did I kill my dog?" even though I know that's stupid. ((hugs))

So sorry to hear about your dog. It sounds like you did what you had to do. So hard but yet so important. The way you handled it was impressive. That took a lot of strength and I am sure Middie was very grateful for everything you did for him.

Thank you all again for the love and support.

I'm having a way harder time with this than I thought. I really am used to having him around, and I'm going half crazy without a dog.

He was such a cool dog, I'm so glad that I got to meet him while he was here.
