my best friend of 14 years was put down this morning, my boston wasnt a trail dog didnt run with me as i rode but he was still my constant companion, took him to the vet late last night he was shivering and had a high fever, turned out he was ate up with cancer, that came as a total shock to the wife and me, he just had a complete exam 4 months ago because he had a tumor that popped up, but test came back as a fatty tumor and non cancerous, guess they was wrong? they gave him a seditive to ease his pain, spent
all morning with him in a private room, hardest thing i ever had to do was to give the final ok, and when the vet slipped the needle into his iv, i started to tear up asking him to forgive me, less than a minute later his breathing stopped, they checked his vitals, i asked if he was gone before they could answer me i was crying like a baby, we brought his body home and buried him in his favorite napping spot in the garden, his name is buddy he died in his best friends arms this morning at 11:05 am knowing that noone could have loved him more than we did

So sorry for your loss. My boston is sleeping next to me and your post made me a little teary eyed thinking some day I may have to do the same. Keep your head up.

Very sorry for your and your wifes loss, I know how deeply it can hurt, but at least you were there in his final hours and he passed in your arms - he had to know how much you loved him. I dread the day when I may have to do the same to my little guy, who's name is also Buddy. Post up a pic of him, I think it would be fitting to the thread.

sorry for your loss, dude.

this is probably not the case. lots of dogs get benign fatty tumors, but your dog may have had an underlying cancer or the cancer you found later could have come on quickly.

cancer can move fast. I got leukemia last year, and it nearly killed me in a matter of about 2wks.

Oh my......no doubt devastating.

My Border collie is without question my best friend and can only guess how painful this is for you.

You did all you could do,provided love,care and a home for your friend...he was family.
Sorry.

Really sorry to hear that. I burried our dog in the back yard the day before xmass a few years ago. Hardest thing I've ever done. Cancer too. The good news is you will get over it.

You took care for him all the way to the end.

One of my 2 dogs is 14. She is sorta blind and nearly deaf, bad skin, but she knows her way around the place and still wags her tail. One day I will come home...I have spot for her in the garden.
We owe it to them to keep them well and help them along if they are in pain or misery.
So sorry for your loss.

Sorry for you loss. I had to put down my little buddy in May. One day he just wasn't looking too great, vet said his breathing was very laboured and that his heart was failing (he was 15).

I miss him heaps but i'm thankful I got to have such an awesome dog.

Sorry, man. I understand and feel your pain. We went through the same thing w/ our golden retriever (Winston) 2 years ago. Had him for 12 years. Out of nowhere, mouth cancer. During an x-ray a month after diagnosis, it came up worse than was thought. So instead of waking him from the x-ray, we just let the attention whore (one of our nicknames for him) stay asleep. One of the hardest things in the world to do. But he's no longer suffering.

Take care. bro!

Just remember, all dogs go to heaven.

RIP little buddy. And cheers to a good life, a great and faithful friend and an eternity filled with happiness and carefree days.

Sorry for your loss, he is now free from cancer and is glad you were his pet for 14 years. His pain is gone and yours will eventually be also. Celebrate what you had! :)
