Algy 07/03/2007-10/15/2019

Recommended Posts

I used to post more, years ago, but just recently came back. We had to put our wonderful boy down today. He’d been having issues with his hind legs for awhile. His limp was getting so bad and he couldn’t go outside to potty without falling up the two steps to get back in. Our vet found a large tumor on his hip on Saturday. We started him on pain management. Last night he had a terrible night, a lot of panting, restlessness and whimpering. This morning he could barely get out of bed and when he did he almost fell over. He wouldn’t put any weight on his right leg (and that’s after pain medication in the middle of the night). We called our vet who came out to the house and we said goodbye to our sweet gentle boy. My heart is shattered. He’s no longer in pain and running free, and I’m thankful for that. But I’m in so much pain and I just want my Algy back.

Yes, the pain is excruciating.  It's part of the price we pay for loving our pets.  I'll continue to pay it, though, because the joy and fulfillment they bring is greater than words can express. Sending lots of good thoughts through the ether to you, Ramona.

True. It's their one fault, really, the dogs we love ... that they can't stay with us forever.

Beautiful Algy. Which group did he come through?

I am so very sorry for your loss.  :grouphug

I’m praying that he does. The guilt is killing me. And his absence is deafening. 😓

There should be no guilt, you did the right thing for him and no houndie can ask more of their human than that they can be let go, with no more pain or discomfort.

Run free Algy!
