Today, I was faced with a very tough decision. I know I did the right thing, but it was one of the most difficult choice I've ever had to make. I had to take Kyoko to the vet to have her put down. This morning she was sick, and didn't respond to my calling. When she finally got up, she stumbled along and was breathing heavy. I sat with her for a while, watching her continue to hold her head up, as her eyes grew heavy. I knew I couldn't let her stay this way. I knew what I had to do, no matter the tears. I am a very petite person, so I knew I wouldn't be able to carry her to the car. I coaxed her as best as I could, and for a while she was too tired to move.

But finally, with all her remaining strength, she followed me outside and even managed to hop into the backseat with some help. By the time I reached the vet, I couldn't get her to get up no matter how hard I tried... so I had to have someone carry her in. I couldn't stop thinking about what would come next. I told her good bye and loved on her one last time.

Her passing was peaceful. She was the most loyal dog I ever had. Kyoko will be missed with each day that I must go on without her. I cry every time I see her no longer sitting at her bed. Isshi has been sulking in her crate all day. I know she misses her friend. RIP Kyo.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sending hugs your way. She will be greeted with 2 Dobe's that I know who are already there. She will love them (miss and love you Jake bud and Rocky).

So sorry for your loss! It's hard I know as I have had to say "good-bye" many times but remember you did what was right for her...even if it was difficult...she will be at peace now!

So very sorry for your loss. I am touched by your loss since I just lost my sweet dobe in December. I can say from experience that your happy memories will eventually help you through but you will always have a special place in your heart for your Gentle Giant.

That's a shame.

My heart goes out to you, it is so hard to make that decision, even when we know its the right one.  We had to make this decision just a month ago with our cardigan welsh corgi, was my first experience dealing with letting go of my our family pet.  We are here for you to vent as much as you need.  Thinking of you in this diffucult time.  (((Hugs)))

Sorry for your loss. It's hard to say goodby to a long time friend. May her Spirit linger around you.
