Hi everyone,

I recently put down my beautiful baby joey. 
Feeling a huge sense of regret like I rushed to the choice of putting him down.

Joey was a German Shepherd mix who was 15.5 years young. Mentally and internally he seemed well, it was his back legs that were giving him problems as well as having accidents on himself. He would drag his back paws to the point where they would bleed.  I took him to the vet and they suggested that  it was time I put him down. I did it right then and there. I feel extremely guilty. 

I feel as if he could of lived much longer. My family believes we made the right choice from preventing him from further suffering. They also feel as if Joey would hide his suffering around me as he was my dog. I dont think I made the right choice. I should of let him go on a bit longer.

Rk22 So sorry you're going through this. I too feel guilty and regretful at times. However, after rationalizing I come to the conclusion that I love my baby too much to see her suffer. You stopped Joe's pain and took it upon yourself out of love for him.
Can you imagine dragging your own feet to the point that they would be bleeding? That's horrible! I am glad your dog is not suffering anymore. Your family is right. Our beloved furry babies do stay with us and hide their pain not to cause us suffering and distress.
You did the right thing.
Hope you heal and find peace soon.
