Farewell Eli

This last weekend was pretty terrible. I had to have my 14 year old red husky named Eli put down. I've known this was coming for quiet some time now but it didn't make it any easier. Eli had a very large tumor on his spleen that may or may not have been cancerous. About 6 months back the vet told me they would give him another 2 months at most to live so he was hanging on quiet a while.

Poor guy had bad hips too. It was to the point where he could hardly stand on his own. He also stopped eating entirely. I believe it had been about 11 days since he last ate. It's amazing he hung on as long as he had. There's a pic below of him taking in some sun light on his last day on earth. Shortly after I took those we took him to the vet to have him put down. I stood by him weeping and petting him as he took his last breath. We ended up taking his remains back to the house to bury him in the back yard. I'm glad old Eli is no longer in pain but the hurt is deep from this one. It maybe odd to say but I just hope Eli didn't feel I betrayed him. Farewell buddy I miss you.

Sorry DC.Chief. Remember the good times. I had to do this last year to our Boston Terrier. Rough times.

As an aside, anyone else click in here thinking this was going to be about Eli Manning?

****EDIT****
Beautiful dog

I've had to do that twice, and it's horrible. It's really hard to know when it is time, and its heartbreaking. Best wishes--

Sucks man.

Almost exclusively, dogs rule. I'm not looking forward to the day I have to part ways with mine. Hopefully I've got several years.

Dogs man...They kick ass.

This sucks. Sorry to hear this man. I'm kinda going through something similar to this with one of my GSD's.

Sounds like he'll be at peace. That's what I struggle with and have gotten into yelling fits with 2 different vets (so far), that I want our dog to be comfortable and enjoy what life he has left. They seem to just want more and more money off of me, we've spent close to 6k in the last two years. Not to mention the 2 years of different meds, which varying results.

Sorry for your loss. Our two dogs are 9 and 10, so I know that we only have a few more years left with them. I'm tearing up just thinking about losing them.

Been through this a few times (albeit with cats) - really another member of your family - just with a shorter lifespan. Really, really difficult for may reasons - but especially since you have to make the decision and witness it - really really tough.

RIP Eli
He looks a lot like Nikki, the Husky we had to put down due to kidney failure in 1997.

I've posted this on here a couple of times, but will continue to do so when it seems appropriate. (it's an old Dear Abby column I saved after we had to put our first husky to sleep in '97).

Dogs Don't Have Souls, Do They?

I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur.

You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping. Once in a while, you'd let out a little yelp just to let me know this is your territory.

Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion, and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes, as if to say, "I'm sorry, but I'll do it again as soon as you 're not watching."

As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone who walked by. When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging, just to say, "Welcome home. I missed you." You never had a bad day and I could always count on you to be there for me.

When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would hop on my lap looking for atention. You never asked for anything more than to have me pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg.

As you got older you moved around more slowly. Then, one day, old age finally took its toll and you couldn't stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up to me as if to say that you were old and tired and that after all of these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me for one favor.

With tears in my eyes, I dorve you one last time to the vet. One last time, you were lying next to me. For some strange reason, you were able to stand up in the animal hospital; perhaps it was your sense of pride.

As the vet led you away, you stopped for an instant, turned your head and looked at me as if to say, "Thank you for taking care of me."

I thought, "No, thank you for taking care of me."

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.

Most dogs I've owned were better 'people' than most humans. RIP Eli.
