    He's getting weaker and can barely walk. I thought the insulin treatment would show improvement but he is having trouble standing and my wife and I feel his time has come and we don't want him to suffer anymore. I already had an appointment for him for Monday but I'm going to ask that they end his suffering. Needless to say I'm extremely heartbroken right now.

    I am sad to hear this but you must do what is best for Rocky. Your family and Rocky are in my prayers.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    That time comes and you have to do what you can.


    Stop here if you donít want to know what happened 70 years back.



    My pup had the symptoms of rabies. Dad took his .22 and handled the problem. Grandmother and had went in for 14 days of injections into our stomachs.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Sorry to hear about Rocky. It's a tough decision. Real tough. Make sure you're holding him as he crosses over. So you feel his weight. It's a tangible memory that anchors your heart.

    He's going-on ahead of you. You'll see him again.

    You, your family and Rocky are in my thoughts and prayers; you gave him a good life and are sparing him unnecessary suffering.

    How sad for you, NJ.

    I know it hasn't happened yet, but you no doubt are doing the right thing no matter how much it hurts.

    Am happy that you know the poem about "The Rainbow Bridge." It does help to put a smile of sorts on your face ...

    Much like that old Elvis song about ol' Shep, that ends:

    "He has gone where the good doggies go. But if dogs have a heaven there's one thing I know ...

    Ol' Shep has a wonderful home."

    Is OK to shed tears NJ ... I do believe they help to heal! Thinking of you!

    I'm sorry, I know how it is and how hard it is to make that decision.

    We're going to do it tomorrow so everyone can say goodbye. The sad thing is that his spirits are good and I thought he was getting better but today he went down in the vet's office and couldn't get back up and his blood sugar, even with the insulin treatments, actually got worse. He's going to be missed that's for sure. As with all our pets, we're going to have him cremated and we're going to keep his ashes.

    A very tough decision to make for sure. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours at this extremely trying time. AND with Rocky. Yes, I agree you will see him again.
