So I walk in the door from work and find my male 12 year old chocolate lab on the floor foaming at the mouth, panting, blue tongue, and eyes are dialated. I look at my wife's care giver and ask if they have (the dogs) been outside and for how long and she said that they were only for 15 minutes and she was just about to call me. I call my vet and he is closed but I know where an emergency vet is so I pick up my 80 something lab load him in the truck get the wife in the truck and off we go at 95 mph.

We get to the vet and they rush him in and started on fluids and start cooling him down. The vet comes back in after a while and said that they have his temp. down from the 108 when he came in but with out giving him plasma and even then there is a good chance he will not make it. The cost of the plasma and other care will start at $3500 and could go up to $5000 not including what they have already done. After going over everything and best worst case and had to make the hard decision to put him down.

I really feel that I let my buddy down! The last thing he did was as we were driving to the vet was nudge my arm as he often did wanting to be petted. This was the best damn dog I have ever had with not a mean bone in his body,no off switch, and lived everybody. Due to my wife's Alzheimer's I have no one to share this with but Y'all sorry to be a downer.

The old boy nudged your arm because as far as he was concerned this was just another truck ride with his dad, probably his favorite thing in the whole wide world.

Terribly sorry for your loss.

Breaks my heart,..12 years of memorable moments.

Unconditional love is all they have to offer, that’s why they go first, they give all the love they have here on earth and then God takes them to let them live in heaven to wait for you.

Prayers sent, sorry for the loss. I know what you are going through.

Respectfully.

Sorry for your loss. It's a hard thing to bear.

You didn't let your dog down. Part of caring for them
is making difficult decisions in their best interest.
Doesn't make it any easier, but it has to be done.

Really sorry for you.

Hope a ray of joy will shine on you soon.

Your friend, and they are our friends and family, would not want you to suffer and be sad.

Try to remember the good times.

You've walked a tough trail. You're definitely a good man. So sorry amigo for the loss.
