Yesterday my lab, Dixie, couldn't get up. She's been getting worse and worse over the last few years. She was completely down in her hindquarters. As she was 15 years old, we figured it was finally time to let her go. It was a good run, girl. I'll see you again someday.

Tough tough thing to do. I did it back in March after 12 years and it was horrible.

Did she have arteritis?

Hate hearing that, poisonivie. Condolences to you and yours. It never ceases to amaze me the power a good pet can have on our lives in such a short time.

There are some folks who think they are just dogs, never have felt that way. Part of the family, when they're gone they're missed like family. Safe travel Dixie girl
There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Sorry to hear that. The cure is to get another one , soon.

A clear conscience is often the sign of a fuzzy memory.

A bad day indeed. You had to stop the suffering. 'Sounds like she had some of the best owners a dog could have.

I went through this with one of my most loyal dogs. Paid for someone to come to our house and do it humanely. People were great, my dog was comfortable and seemed happy, but it broke me down. Losing a dog is like losing a close friend/family member. My condolences

Thanks for the kind words, guys. My GSP, Tiny, is assuaging my grief. Dixie had a good run. Not many labs make it to 15 yrs of age.
