Had to put my dog down today :(

Hi all..

Thought id share a photo of my dog Jedi.

He lived with my family for 11 years. He was such a cleaver dog almost wise, and was always there for our family whenever we needed him..

He slowly got worse over the last year, and this week he had an operation, and the Vet said he had Cancer and that he wouldn't recover well..

He lasted a few days after his operation and I decided it was best for him to be put down, the vet suggested this also.

My folks went overseas while all this is happening and I did not want to bother them with this news, while they are having such a great time, so I was left in charge to deal with it all. It was a week of sadness and my sisters and my wife all had a hard time.

I did also..


Here is Jedi RIP buddy I love ya !!!

he is a shi-tzu pikanese maltese 3 way cross :P

Re: Had to put my dog down today :(

That is horrible, and I'm so sorry to hear it.

I am a big dog person, growing up with dogs my whole life, and luckily owning the two best dogs of my life right now.

I am a huge animal lover in general, and it's a shame that there are a lot of people out there that just really don't understand animals and the impact they can have on a person's life when we are kind enough to share our home and our life with them.

RIP Jedi, I am sure you will be truly missed.

Sorry to hear that man...my condolences. My two dogs are like my kids, and they're starting to get up there in age. I dread going through what you went through.

Very sorry to hear it man. 11 years is a good old stretch though, and plenty of happy memories no doubt.

R.I.P. Jedi

Re: Had to put my dog down today :(

Wow, I feel for you...

My dog is 12 years old, and she's been a part of my family since I was in kindergarten. Her old age is showing, but I can't even think about the day she will leave us.

Re: Had to put my dog down today :(

I've been through two dogs and two cats in my lifetime, and it never gets any easier to say goodbye. We're about to lose our cat of 12 years to cancer. I feel your pain, amigo. Usually I go out and find a new puppy or a kitten to grieve over.

Sorry for your loss.

Re: Had to put my dog down today :(

Thanks for the support everyone...

The house is so empty, I keep expecting him to be in certain spots around the house, and he's just not there...

He was so tired, he needed to sleep

My guitar and Jemsite has been really helping, iv just been playing and playing my guitar non stop...

Cheers all !!
