    Default Last visit to the vet

    Not a hunting dog, but today is that painful day when the dog must go to the vet for the last time. If the state issued hunting licenses for other people's dinner, he'd be an ace.

    Still, I will miss George.

    That’s tough. Remember the good times with him and be consoled by the knowledge that you gave him a good life.

    That sucks. It's the only downfall of owning a dog.

    Sage advice. Thanks. As this was planned, I did all of the things I could to say goodbye. The kids seem to be taking it ok. We still have another (tail in bottom of photo) who hopefully has several years left.

    What sucks about owning dogs is that the most painful part comes last.

    Feel bad about not seeing him anymore. Don't feel bad about ending his suffering. That is what good owners do.

    Sorry to hear about George, but you did the right thing. Still has to be tough as hell though.

    Bummer. We're watching our old fella start to fail...not fun to contemplate.
