    It Okay to let him go and free him of his miserable existence. This is the one thing we can always do for our dogs...give them the best quality life possible and when there is nothing left to give, let them go. His life now is not what you want it to be and you've exhausted yourself searching for what can't be found. You've done way more than what's reasonably expected of a loving dog owner.
    Remember the good and put aside the bad and let him go.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Here is our experience in losing our 15 year old Terrier in May. The dog was as you described Tiberius except for the fact that she had never had a surgery or illness. She was the light of my husbands life. I knew months before the end that it was time to humanely help her over the rainbow bridge. My husband refused to even think about it. He became angry with me for even suggesting it. She pooed and peed all over the house. She stood on the corner staring into space. She was totally deaf and partially blind. We had many arguments over what to do about Taffy. But, she was my husbands beloved and he would not budge.
    The end came one morning when I was awakened by my husband screaming my name. I thought he was dying or that something had happened to my daughter. I ran out of the bedroom and saw my husband standing by the pool. There was Taffy, lying at the bottom of the pool. This was a dog who swam daily until the last few months. I had to tell my husband to jump in and get her out. He was in shock. Clothes and all, he had to get that poor dog out of the pool. She was already stiff. It was about 7 am. My husband had let her out at 6 am and then he fell asleep again. We had to wrap Taffy in a beach towel and let her lay out there on the side of the pool until the vets office opened at 8:30am. Then we had to place her in the car to drive her to the vets office. I had to hold the dead dog on my lap while my husband drove.
    I will never ever forgive my husband for his lack of courage to do the right thing at the right time got poor Taffy, the dog he adored so much. I will never forgive him for being mean to me when I suggested many times that it was time for Taffy to cross the bridge, that all of her Taffyness was gone and she wasn't there behind those once sparkling eyes. I will never forgive myself for not just taking her to the vets alone and holding her in my arms with courageous love whiles she passed over. Instead, she died alone in a pool, her lungs filling with water, probably so frightened, struggling.
    Do not let yourself have to deal with some tragic end for Tiberius. Send him over the bridge with courage and enduring love.
    Know that I am and will continue to think of you both.

    @cefe13 ...thank you so much. As difficult as this is, it lightens the load just a little hearing words of caring and encouragement from other Bulldog pawrents. I truly believe that you have to have something special in you to love and parent a Bulldog. They're truly one of a kind and I feel so honored that I was able to be Ti's mama for as long as I have been.

    Hugs to you and Castor
