UPDATE: I think it's time...
« Reply #15 on: October 23, 2014, 11:59:05 AM »
Saturday is the day. We've made the decision to put both dogs down at the same time actually.

Both their qualities of life have greatly diminished at this point. Felix can barely walk in a straight line anymore and more often than not just falls. He primarily just lays down most days and it's a struggle just to get him outside to potty. Buddy is to the point where he's pooping/peeing in the house almost every day, his hearing is failing, he's got cataracts in his eyes and he's lost so much weight from his loss of appetite.

As hard a decision is was to come to this conclusion, we feel it's best to do it at the same time, so we don't have to grieve again a few months later. Plus, I'm not sure how either dog would react to the other one gone.

Please send me some prayers guys that I make it through this day.  It will be the hardest day of my life.

Oh geeze, Lisa! I read about Felix on FB, but had no idea about Buddy too! I'm so sorry. Felix was like one of the originals here, and yet another one gone. :( Just breaks my heart. So sorry you are going through this. RIP Felix and Buddy. Atleast they will both have each other, while greeting all our babies at the bridge.

I hope by now your mind has settled a bit.  I'm so sorry you and your family had to make such a tough decision with both dogs.  It is so sad that another of our long time forum boxers (and his sidekick) is gone.  Hugs you guys!

Thanks everyone for your kind words and support. We actually decided NOT to put Buddy down at the same time. We looked long and hard at his situation and even though he is incontinent every once in awhile, it just wasn't his time to go.

I sure miss my poochie though.  :'(
