as a family, we decided that we need to put down my 15 year old collie Simba. He is really having a tough time. Upon other things (hes got diabetis, one leg has such bad arthritis that he just drags it, hes blind, and deaf, we have to hand feed him, he goes to the bathroom on himself...)He's got so much hair that flies actually layed eggs on him, and were eating at him. He has a big open wound, is in a lot of pain, but it still trouping.
When is the point where you have to let them go? I know it's never easy, but how do you hold their lives in your hands? when do you have the right to say its over? Its such a hard decision for us. We LOVE our animals, and provide them with the most wonderful lives. (for example, for the past 2 years simba gets to eat london broil! not vegan but its ok hhe)
Im having a really hard time dealing with this. We dont want him to die alone, and scared. We don't want me to be the only one home and have to deal with it on my own. And Im not sure how many more times we can walk to see him and make sure he's still breathing.
I love my dog.. I will always love him....But I think its time for him to be comfortable and sleep :(
