Thanks everyone, it really does mean alot to me. <333 so much more than I could ask for. As for support I will be alone because everyone has work, I took it off but it's okay because I deal better with things when I'm alone and can think. All I can think about now is how good she looks out in her pasture but I know a different day she will be worse, and some days she will be better. A majority of her days are bad so I have to put her down its for whats best.

D; D; D; I hateeee this. It's better it happens when I'm here to do it humanely then her suffocating to death when I'm not home.

Blahhh thanks everyone for the support and the stories, they helped me alot. I also made bracelets from her tail hair for everyone who was close to her.

I'm so sorry hon. I agree with the others that while it is a very difficult decision I applaud you for making the right decision for her.

Sending you many hugs and prayers in this tough time.

All I can say I'm very sorry! My old dog had similar symptoms and my vet (very good one) said the same thing: she most probably had tumor in head (nothing could be done about). I was lucky enough to have her pass away naturally one night so I should't make such a tough decision. But still, it's very, very hard......

Thanks guys, after reading this thread I let myself have a long overdue cry. This kind of thing is just so, so sad. I am very, very sorry for what you have to go through tomorrow. I will be thinking of you.

Awhh! Don't cry it's making me cry. My aunt whom I bought he off of 9 years ago called me and was balling her eyes out. I still haven't built up the guts to call her back because I don't want to cry more.

Hugs to you and pat on the back for being strong and making tough decisions. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow...

The difficulty lies not in the new ideas, but escaping the old ones.....

So sorry, big hugs! After seeing your other post it would seem that you are doing what's best ! It's never easy but your heart will heal with time and what you will be left with is cherished memories.

Oh, honey. I am so sorry. :,,( Losing a long time friend like that is never easy. Just think though, she won't be in pain anymore and she will be reborn to another place where she can teach other children the same lessons that she taught you. You may be losing a best friend but someone else is gaining an angel.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
