    I can't even begin to tell you a similar story I went through with my dog 3 years ago... I'm not like you, I internalize when things are too upsetting to bear... I will hope for the best for Jake and you too! Somebody get me a tissue! :(

    Really sad for you and your family bones. I remember those sad events with dogs I loved.

    thanks.....jakkers was not the type of dog who would want to bump around blind or drag his legs....he was a good dog and deserved to be treated as such....in life and death.....he had a good run.....
    i think we are all still in shock...it just happened so fast...it went from....yea ill take jakkers to the vet.....to met me at the vet....something is really wrong....

    apparently he was throwing blood clots...my vet was hopeful till she saw his eyes....you could see her shoulders slump....

    jake knew it was time....i did what i feel like jake would want.....dogs live in the moment...jake was caught in a horrible moment.....i got him out of there....
