because we're all God's creatures and none of us should have to be forced to suffer. maybe it's not necessary to put the animal down but it is necessary to love and care form until they're passing is over

I have a senior dog and I know I want him to leave this world as peacefully as possible when the time arrives.

So do I Taylor. He's doing well these days and still loves to ride in the car. I take it a day at a time and appreciate each one I get.

We are so kind to our pets when it comes to end of life decisions for our pets.

"Shukan" is the Lakota word for "dog" but its meaning is far deeper: "Relative by choice". Who can say why the first Wolf approached and joined with Humanities Pack and perhaps it does not matter. What does matter is these valiant and loyal relatives have walked with us faithfully and even aged they would still try to be there for us. Being there for them takes so little and whenever a cause such as this appears in thier honor I'm all for it. I'm Cherokee, not Lakota and the name means...

Brcause, like all of us, our old furbabies deserve to end their lives warm, loved and not alone. I would rather take an older one than not. They, cats and dogs still love

I wish I could help them all, but I am happy to do what I can do... one or two foster dogs at a time! My heart goes out to the elderly pets who have been dumped in shelters after they outlived their usefulness. I have a sweet poodle girl that my husband and I rescued from Harris County Animal Control- a god-awful place with a 90+ % PTS rate. Fortunately we had help from a rescue group that paid to have her horrific mammary tumor removed and her teeth cleaned. She only has 6 teeth left,...

I wish I could help them all, but I am happy to do what I can do... one or two foster dogs at a time! My heart goes out to the elderly pets who have been dumped in shelters after they outlived their usefulness. I have a sweet poodle girl that my husband and I rescued from Harris County Animal Control- a god-awful place with a 90+ % PTS rate. Fortunately we had help from a rescue group that paid to have her horrific mammary tumor removed and her teeth cleaned. She only has 6 teeth left, but boy, she loves to eat! Thankfully the tumor was benign. She's about 12 years old and has serious cataracts, but she is safe and warm with a full belly and lots of love! She will not die alone and unwanted. God willing, we'll have her for a few more years. Each day is a blessing... they give so much and expect so little in return.

I love this cause and it is one of the blessings that got me through my last older girl who passed.

We lost our sweet Torti last week. She was the stray cat that we tried to catch for one year. She would only eat under my car. I knew she wasn't feral, just scared. This darling kitty came to our front door and let Tom pick her up..she was having respiratory problems, so Tom rushed her to the Vet, The vet thought she had asthma. We kept her inside and gave her TLC and love. A few days later, her breathing became worse, so we took her back to the Vet and sadly was told she had lung cancer....

We brought her home again and she seemd to rally for a few days. She was a purr machine and was so happy. Unfortunatley, she took a turn and we knew. We returned back to the Vet and she crossed over, while in my arms, still purring. We miss her terribly. The two weeks she spent with us were amazing. I wish we had more time with her. I feel honored and prevlidged that she felt safe to come to us. Such a beautiful -special- wonderful cat.

Years ago, I was new to rescue and saw a shelter post about a 12 year old lab who was in pitiful shape. But the look in his eyes haunted me, he knew the world had forsaken him. I brought him home and he lived with us another three years, and was the sweetest, most gentle boy ever. I promised him, to the best of my ability, I would never, ever, let another dog feel the way he felt when he was at the shelter. A year after Poppie came into my life, Pumpkin was returned to our rescue and had...

Years ago, I was new to rescue and saw a shelter post about a 12 year old lab who was in pitiful shape. But the look in his eyes haunted me, he knew the world had forsaken him. I brought him home and he lived with us another three years, and was the sweetest, most gentle boy ever. I promised him, to the best of my ability, I would never, ever, let another dog feel the way he felt when he was at the shelter. A year after Poppie came into my life, Pumpkin was returned to our rescue and had nowhere else to go - he was only six but had an aggressive brain tumor that had eaten its way into his sinuses and out of his skull, yet wasn't really showing any effects yet. It would kill him within the year, but he was still happy and totally in control of everything, a really joyful dog - but no one wanted to have a dying dog or watch a bright life dim. So I said we'd take him, and like Poppie, Pumpkin changed our life. I only take ultra seniors or terminal dogs now, because they are the ones who truly have nowhere else to go, and they know. They just KNOW.

I was thinking earlier, if something happened to me, and I couldn't take care of MacKenzie in her final days, what would happen to her? Could I put her down just because I needed surgery? I would probably delay surgery rather than put her to sleep for being inconvenient. I'm feeling really cruddy today but not *that* cruddy fortunately!

I have a dying beagle in much the same situation as Smuddgie, so I can relate to every word of Smuddgie's incredible journey.

I have just taken a 4th dog. Already lost 2, but they are still in my heart and the new one will not take the place of the others. Though its very hard when they go I can't imagine living without a loving dog. The 3rd dog Réa 12 years old is blind and have an important heart problem. I never know when I go up in the morning if she will still be there. I dread the idea of her death. I love her They are my life...
