last night my dog couldnt open her jaw but a hlaf inch. i google & figured it was a degerative disorder that many big dogs of her breeds gets. NOPE! she had a tumor on her jaw muscles. the vet says he only seen 6 in his 20 years. gave her recovery if i went for kemo, surgery, etc etc 40%. So she gonna have her final weekend at my parent house chasing rabbits & birds then on monday she gonna get put to sleep. I was crying like a girl all upset at the vets, she came over to see if i was allright. fellas I've had family dogs before but this is my first dog. this is the hardest thing i have to do. But she not in pain. my mom is cutting up food for her real small so she can eat, she can still drink. So fellas please have a drink in memory of INTEGRA.

Prost for Integra! Man, I'm sorry to hear about that. It's going to be a tough end of the weekend.

I highly recommend this book. Amazon.com: Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Lover's Story of Joy and Anguish: Mark R. Levin: Books

*Raises glass to Integra* Sorry for your loss Monty. It is never easy to lose a part of the family like that.

It's never easy, but you're doing the kindest thing for her.

[glass raised to both of you]

My boyhood friend Onyx (black cocker spaniel) was put to sleep after one more day at the ocean chasing sea gulls...

I am drinking a flat Oatmeal stout in honor of monty (only bottled yesterday).

peace man. Sorry about your loss

Monty,


I'm sorry to hear the news about the pooch. That sucks! My dad is a vet in WA, and I've been on both spectrums, and I tell you this, I only wish that our medical profession would respect those wishes for us humans. Look, you are giving her a hell of time, she loves you and vice versa, what you are doing is respecting her. It's a tough decision. no doubt about it. but ****, I wish someone would do that for me if I'm ever in that situation.

I can tell you behind the curtains, that animals are put down in the upmost respect. I've been there....

I honestly wish you the best of luck.
