    Thank you so much. It really has been a very difficult time for us, so sudden. We couldn't let him suffer though as he quickly became totally paralysed in his hindquarters, this also affected his ability to pass water, and I had to resort to manually expressing his bladder. At that point we just knew it wasn't fair on him. He was very much loved and was pts peacefully. He looked beautiful at the end.

    An unexpected loss is never easy.
    You've had a very tough few days and we're all thinking of you at this time.

    When we had our German Shepherd PTS years ago, it was also very peaceful. She just looked like she went to sleep. I am so glad you were there with him even though it was a heartbreaking decision. My thoughts are with you.

    So sorry to hear about this Sue. Thank you for letting him go with dignity - always a hard decision but in time that eases.

    I hope you have many happy memories to comfort you.

    So sorry to hear that Harry became so ill and how fortunate he was to have you as his parent. You must miss him very much. I read this from someone who also had to bear putting their dog to sleep and found it true.

    Quality of death is as important as quality of life.
