I put my dog down - it was so peaceful
I made the awful decision to have my dog put down today . She's a cocker/bichon mix & was 17 and a half years old !
Watching her have so many problems in the last month - I knew in my heart it was time.
The last dog I had to put down was my Golden ... She got "the shot" & I thought she was going to jump off of the table -- it looked like it hurt her so bad. I've had nightmares about it . I've since read that's a reaction of the body to the heart stopping - not pain ... But it killed me to watch that.
This is a new vet I've never seen before . I was so impressed at how respectful she was of me & how peaceful she made the whole process.
She did the whole procedure slowly and calmly ...and explained every step of the way what is going to happen. Finally , Anna just relaxed in my arms for the last time. ( No jerking or twitching )
All went well ..... I hope your babies are up there waiting to play with a fiesty little girl . ((Anna))
