    Great advice from everybody, tears running down my face right now, when I read the poem, so beautiful . It is a hard decision, but you will know and can make that decision with your vet when the time comes. I had a jack Russell who died 2 years ago, she was 14 years old, and she had cancer in the end. My vet said it would come down to her quality of life, and if she was suffering. She lived for almost another year

    We had to put our family beagle down a couple months ago. She was 12 and her hips were really bad and she developed a tumor in one of her nipples. It got to the point were she couldn't walk up the stairs. She would always hide under the bed. She was disassociating herself with us. We knew. It was the hardest thing ever but you will know. Good luck.

    My heart goes out to you. I'm currently going through this process myself with my shepherd/lab mix. It's heartbreaking to think about and the worse decision to have to make. That poem that was posted was beautiful. It made me cry.

    I've had to give up my 3 beauties one at a time over the years. They were three boxers, close in age(--14 ish) Seanie, Shasta then Shana. Shana was my lady to leave for the bridge. I have to say, she was the hardest. She was the last after all and when I went home I had no one there. Not even my husband because he was gone out on his Towboat. So, judge this however you can but on the last one I sat in the waiting room after that long drive to the vet. I cried on her shoulder and hugged, talked and sobbed. She had been sick for a while and so near death. Her back ankles were huge with fluid. She had tumors all over her and they were bleeding so I had bandages all over her too. I couldn't bare to see her poked with one more needle. I COULD NOT. So, I told her goodbye, kissed her , nodded to the vets tech, and walked out. I sat in the car and sobbed alone too grieved to drive (45 min from home) and prayed for her and for me. I hope she didn't know I was coming to pick her ashes up when I came back again. I could NOT watch her get needles poked into her again and I could not do it alone for sure. So, do with this what you will as you make your decision. I still don't feel good that I did it this way, but I still know it was all I could do.
    I love you Shana Smock-imageuploadedbytapatalk1358358408-074627-jpg

    Hope has gained a bit of energy back. But I've talked to my Vet we adjusted her medication and decided to add some a bit of extra protein to her food and try and walk every other day for at least 10mins. She definitely has that determination in her eyes that she's NOT ready to leave me yet.... She's my whole inspiration on helping other rescue pets!

    I didn’t want to go at first, I fought with all my might. But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.

    I want to go, I really do; it’s difficult to stay. But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.

    To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears. I know you’re sad and afraid, because I see your tears.

    I’ll not be far, I promise that, and hope you’ll always know, that my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.

    Thank you so for loving me. You know I love you too, and that’s why it’s hard to say goodbye and end this life with you.

    So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say, because you care so much for me, you’ll let me go today.

    She will let you know, when to help her gain her wings. Praying for your strength.

    This just made me cry.. I had to put my persian cat to sleep yesterday and it broke my heart.. This made me cry but made me realise i done the best thing for him and i gave him the best life he could dream of after i rescued him from abuse and being mistreated 4yrs ago (he was used for breeding and LIVED in a small cat carrier he was starved and matted and covered in feaces from head to toe. His stomaxh damaged from attemptin to clean himself so much and his back legs wernt working poperly where he had no space to walk or move.) he showed me so much love thanks and affection and i knew he understood and appreciated my help.. I saved him and gave him the chance to be happy before he was lay to rest yesterday.
