    today we made the hardest decision to let the best dog ever go. maggie was the sweetest, kindest gsd ever. 14 year old maggie’s body had simply worn out even though mentally she was all there.

    she went peacefully in our home surrounded by people that love her and that she loved.

    i feel like i betrayed her by having her euthanized even though i know what we did was right. she was suffering with severe hip displasia, fused vertebrae that caused occasional paralysis and had lost control of her bowels.

    we miss her so much.

    My condolences.

    It is very hard, indeed, but it is not about what is easy for us. It is about what is kindest for them.

    You did the right thing.

    So sorry that is incredibly tough. Your feelings of betrayal are normal, I felt the same. Yes it was your choice, but you allowed her to go peacefully surrounded by those she loves and you minimized her pain and suffering.
    Pretty sure she had a great life and it helps to remind yourself of things learned from her - loyalty, anticipation, live for today etc.
    Maggie is watching and wanting you to keep on keeping on.......

    So sorry for your loss. It's a tough decision but you made the right call don't ever doubt that. We've gone through this process three times in the last year it never gets easy and I miss my dogs a great deal but they are at peace and not suffering with cancer any longer. As much as it sucked and we second guessed ourselves each time we had to make that decision a couple months down the road I've come to terms with it and realize its part of the package when it comes to sharing your life with pets.

    We've emergency fostered some 4 week old pups and a couple dogs recently which has helped with the empty house feeling and our most recent foster will probably be a foster fail but we weren't planning on that it just happened. Gyma (or Gemma as we call her) loves riding in the Tacoma. I think we will continue to foster just to give back to the rescues who have given so much to us over the years.

    After I got my cap I tried to see how my doggo would handle riding in the bed versus having him in the cab to go take him hiking. He seemed to enjoy it and slobbered all over my middle rear seat.

    So sorry for your loss, I know it’s very hard we had to do the same with our little Bonnie.

    Kipling comes to mind every time I have lost one of mine. ALWAYS get another one right away is my advice. It’s never the same but different, and will be a whole new gift of adventure.

    “The Power of a Dog”

    THERE is sorrow enough in the natural way
    From men and women to fill our day;
    And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
    Why do we always arrange for more?
    Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
    Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.


    Buy a pup and your money will buy
    Love unflinching that cannot lie
    Perfect passion and worship fed
    By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
    Nevertheless it is hardly fair
    To risk your heart for a dog to tear.


    When the fourteen years which Nature permits
    Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
    And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
    To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
    Then you will find - it's your own affair, -
    But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.


    When the body that lived at your single will,
    With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!),
    When the spirit that answered your every mood
    Is gone - wherever it goes - for good,
    You will discover how much you care,
    And will give your heart to a dog to tear!


    We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
    When it comes to burying Christian clay.
    Our loves are not given, but only lent,
    At compound interest of cent per cent,
    Though it is not always the case, I believe,
    That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve;
    For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
    A short-time loan is as bad as a long -
    So why in - Heaven (before we are there)
    Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

    Rudyard Kipling
