We just made the appointment with the vet to put down our Dal on Thursday. He's 13, and the pain from his arthritis has overwhelmed the meds. He still has good moments, but they are fleeting, and most meals we approach in fear because he's in "full instincts and adrenalin" mode from the pain, teeth bared and snarling, aggressively lunging at my wife. That's not him, and, clearly, he's suffering greatly.

We'll miss you, buddy. You were one of a kind.

Sorry to here. I wish you and your family the best through tough times. I have three dogs and as I see it, it is a hard reality but one of mine is coming to that point. Anyhow, sorry again.
John

Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a pet. They are a part of the family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry Mike

13 years is a good, long life. Glad that he won't suffer anymore.

:-( So sorry to hear . . . we had to make a similar decision a few years back and know how heartwrenching it is! As others have said, remember all the wonderful years you had together as a family.
