i'm incrediblly sad and depressed right now

we just brought one of our dogs to the vet to put him asleep
after 15 years our little maffioso Enzo was starting too suffer and loosing his mind.
he also had some sort of wounds now that my other dog kept licking trying to protect and trying to keep him safe but because of that he has had diarya and hasn't (or barelly) eaten for 2 days anymore, so i can't keep endangering my ohter dog because of that.
i'm not making much sense now, i'm too damn depressed

Sorry to hear that man, it always sucks to loose a pal.
Remember the good days, and give him his own place in your mind

Dirk - I'm really sorry to hear about that.

It's always hard - especially after so long together.

But Bobs right - remember the good times, and in time you'll always smile when you think of him.

I too share your pain. I had a good ol'e cat for almost 19 years....he was my Buddy. He was hefty at about 30 pounds, and became diabetic at 15 years old. I tended to him a lot his last few years with me, giving him two shots a day and monitoring his sugar levels. He was the smartest, most easy going cat ever. He was always happy even when he had troubles getting around. I would carry him places, we look out windows, go out on the deck, help him up stairs and onto our bed. He would sometimes pee without making it to the litter box...and you could tell he felt terrible about being a "bad boy". As time went on I could see that he was beginning to suffer quite a bit even though his mind was sharp as ever. So I made the decision that you had to make. I had to do what's right for him, not for me. As I type this tears are welling up in my eyes.....my heart goes out to you.

You have my sympathies, Dirk & carguy. Take heart that Enzo has no more suffering to endure.

Only 4 weeks ago a new puppy (a red/white border collie) "joined" my family. We talked to the kids a lot about how it is a "dog for life" and not just a holiday plaything. I know there will be many ups and downs, but I hope a companion dog will help the children (& me) experience a richer life, including eventually coping with grief & loss.

thanks for all the support guys, really appreciate it.
now that a day has gone by, i had a chance to clear my head a bit.
and now i only see how bad he gotten in only 2 days and also the stuff that the doc said has finally processed a bit better so that i know that it was the right decision to do.

it's also sad to see now how my other dog & cat are missing him.
my dog didnt feel like playing today he just kept lying there (well, more then usual), he understands that his best friend is gone.
and the cat, she knows we are sad but she still keeps looking for her sleeping buddy
