The hardest thing I ever had to do...

was put down my beloved dog Lui today. He was a four year old Jack Russell, who, for 99 per cent of the time, was as fun, loving, and as smart as any dog I've ever met. But it was the other one per cent that led to his demise...he had what the Vets termed as a temperment disorder, and/or "Dominant Aggressive" behavior, which made him bite, sometimes violently, without any provocation or warning. It was the responsible thing to do, but that doesn't take away the extreme loss both my wife and I feel tonight. We'll always love him, and we'll miss him :(

I know how ya' feel. I've lost a dog, two ferrets, and soon to be another dog...


The two ferrets were due to Vets' ignorance of the animals, and they got what was comming to them, let's say...:D

My sympathies, CanadaKC. Losing a dog is tough. The great memories will be a comfort, though.

Seriously, putting to sleep an animal with a severe disabiltiy or disorder shows that you really do care for the animal. Compassion for the animal is often not considered.


It takes guts and love man...Sorry for your loss.....

:(

Today was pretty horrible, I was out looking at a house here in KC and as we were walking around the house we noticed the neighbors dog lying there on the ground and not moving. The poor dog had got his chain wound up and couldn't get to his water dish or to any shelter from the heat and finally collapsed. I probably shouldn't have posted this here, but it was pretty damn disturbing.

Brad - I agree. My inlaws would not put one of their dogs asleep, and it pissed me off endlessly. The dog had diabeties, couldn't see anymore, couldn't hear so well and was in pain walking up and down the stairs. You could open up the door for her when she wanted to go outside, but she couldn't even tell that you opened the door. I'm not a dog lover by any means, but this was probably one of my favorite dogs as she was really smart and didn't feel the urge to pester me all the time.

Canada - Sorry about the loss of your dog, I can't imagine losing my cat (his personallity is part dog).

Full of cheer, ey yeah sure.

Been there and done that.

Had to let go of two Lab mixes that turned on our cats (iced two of them) and then got snappy with both of my boys.

We only had them less than 6 months but the writing was on the wall. These pups were raised with those kittens/cats but they became violent overnight it seemed.

Whatever the "mix" was appeared to be a dominant trait.

I had a dog for eight or nine years and it got jealous of my newborn daughter & I had to put it down for concern of my daughters safety. I sympathize with you.....I had tears in my eyes as I left the vets.

Sorry to hear about the loss, Canada. But as others have posted, it sounds like you did the responsible thing.

It's amazing how attached we become to our canine pals.

Can you provide me with some info on this disorder. I have a Jack Russell mix (mostly Jack Russell). He acts the same as you describe. They Vet says that he was probably abused as a puppy by his past owner, but I have always thought different.

I was given a Springer Spaniel who had been raised by a single guy who had gotten married and when they had their first child he was jelous of the baby. He turned out to be one of the most lovable dogs you would ever find. I had him about 9 years when he died in the back seat of my car on the way to Kansas City from California from what I believe to be a heart attack. It was a long drive without him as he loved to go in the car. I was lost after two weeks of not having a dog around and got the Cocker Spaniel that I now have in Topeka. As I live alone he is my second child. He does't know that he is a dog. Everything that I do he is right in the middle of it.

Anyone who has a dog and in the heat does't provide it with easy access to its water bowl and shade is a pretty cruel individual. There are some people who just should not have any type of pet. I am sure that had to be a very slow death for that poor dog.

CanadaKC- sorry to hear of your loss. It is always hard to give up a part of the family.

i feel for you canada...a couple weeks ago my wife was backing out of the garage and while she was looking for the pup so not to back over it, she backed over my 15yr old lab. best beer drinking, arrowhead hunting partner i ever had. had to take her to the vet and put her down(the dog, not the wife).

i had her cremated and took her down to the river and buried her along the levy...damn, i wish i wouldn't have even started reading this thread.

I don't want to sound insensative.....

but if putting down a dog you've had 4 years is the toughest thing in life you've had to do....consider yourself lucky.

I do sympathise with you folks....I've had to shoot more than one of my dogs(I'm not paying a vet $100 for something that can be done by me with a single 22 shell.) and didn't enjoy it at all....A buddy of mine recently had to take his old dog out to the woods, had a beer with him and put him down.....thats the way I'd want to go out if I were a dog.

While I have liked my dogs(some of them anyway) I've never been able to see them as more than a dog.

~can think of worse things.

Iowanian,

I have lived that country life too and slaughtered many animals for food. I have always had a harder time putting down dogs though. If I don't like the dog I will get rid of it. If I like it I will spend the $100 to fix it. I think things change a little in city life as you usually have substantially less animals ( I have one dog now ) and you tend to get much closer to them. My dog cost me $1,600 to begin with so I will spend what I need to in order to keep it healthy. (unless it is ridiculous) It has become a member of the family and tends to get treated as such.

BIG DADDY

Is getting softer in his old age.:(

well put big daddy...i've also put down numerous pets of ours and for the neighbors. it's not fun, but if it has to be done, it should be done quick and right.
old abby was quite a dog though...plus, my cousin is a vet and a partner in a animal clinic in columbia. takes care of all the family pets. she and her staff did in 10minutes what it would take 2days in a hospital if it was me that got run over.
