He developed sudden pain Friday afternoon. Went to hospital and got pain meds, tried to take him home Friday evening, pain and anxiety worsened, returned to hospital last night around 10. By this afternoon they couldn't get the pain and anxiety under control. It was awful. We decided to end his suffering. She thinks it was spinal tumor. Earliest MRI would've been Tuesday. Couldn't let him suffer on until then. He was 10, I wouldn't have put him through

continued suffering / surgery etc. We will miss him so much. He was the best dog.

What a fast turn of events! I am so sad and sorry to read this. Take comfort in knowing that your sweet boy is at peace and pain free. He is running, once again, with the wind.

I'm very sorry for your loss. This decision never gets any easier and you relieved him of all that pain. That's the ultimate act of loving your hound.

 

Run pain-free, Max. :f_red

I'm so sorry you lost your precious Max. It's heartbreaking to see our babies in so much pain, and have to make the most difficult of decisions.

I’m so sorry for your loss...may you get comfort knowing you made the most loving decision for Max.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Thank you. Right now I'm crying a lot and feeling a lot of guilt about putting him to sleep. I know it will get better but this is so hard.

 

You didn't put him to sleep. You relieved his pain and made him whole once again.

 

Be kind to yourself....

Please allow me....

 

I became intensely interested in grief counseling after my daughter was murdered nearly 23 years ago. I now do grief counseling, at the doctoral level. I am always astounded by the number of people who take so much guilt unto themselves for behavior and results beyond their control.

 

How foolish for us to assume responsibility for that which is beyond our ability to understand, no less to control.

 

We can only do our best, with the best intentions, based on what we know. Beyond that... it's a crapshoot.

My deepest sympathy. I so understand. Believe me you did the right thing. In your heart you know he told you it was time. He also knew that you would do anything for him because he knew how much you loved him-and always will. Perhaps he will send you a sign to reassure you. Regardless, love never ever dies. It is energy like everything else and cannot be destroyed, even by death. Max will be with you always.
