View Full Version : Life I hate feeling helpless.

So, the pup isn't doing the best. It appears as if the parents are putting him down tomorrow. He's a bit older than 3 years.

He was a heavier dog -- around 125 at one time -- he's down to 111 now. Vet called it spinal cord disease, possibly cancer, or a herniated disc.

What's strange to me is that he appears that he's not in pain, but he's obviously not the same. I guess what bothers me most is how my mother is acting -- I don't blame her. It kills me to see her the way she is now. Putting him down is probably the smartest thing -- although it kills me.

I've actually cried tonight -- the first time in a real long time. I just hate feeling utterly helpless -- there's nothing I can do or say to him to make him feel any better. That kills me.

I love you Cooper.

Sorry to hear that. I just lost my cat last week and it sucks I've cried everyday since its ok. You should get a new pet when you want.

Sorry to hear it man. 3 years old? Damn... young pup to have that kinda trouble.

He was diagnosed with epilepsy at one. He had seizures on and off -- some more violent than others.

He actually ate our other pup's medication pills bottle more than once -- crazy bastard.

This sucks.

Sorry about your loss.

Dogs are the best people.

My mom had to put all 4 of her dogs down recently. They'd been with her for 12 (I think) years. It was hard for her. But it was best for the animal. I'd rather send it home than let it wallow in pain.
