The Jimmy Stewart link is beautiful.
So your solution is to get a new dog and sacrifice him all in the name of revenge? Interesting suggestion.
Me? I'd spring for the autopsy if it's not too late. I would have to know, if it turned out not to be poisoning you have destroyed a relationship with your neighbor for nothing.
This is true with lots of animals - especially cats. They often know when it's time and don't want to be messed with.
Alright let's calm down here I don't have any real suggestions outside of making the guy pay if he's really soulless enough to murder an animal.
Also I thought he said it happened a few years ago and an autopsy was no longer a possibility.
My cat did exactly that in October. She was looking poorly and losing weight, an one day she just never came back. She was 14 and for an indoor/outdoor cat, that is old. I never thought I'd miss that cat, but I do. She was my eldest's cat and he moved out of state, and I inherited her and came to love her. But I have no thoughts of getting another.
I picked up the ashes at the vets on saturday, and took them home. My wife was tearful when she opened the box and found a mahogony box, it looked to her like a baby casket.
Just wondering what is the likelyhood that the box contains the actual ashes of our dog? We paid several hundred dollars more to have "her" ashes returned to us?
ttt for Perdita who had just turned 14 at the end of March, Im 23. Brought her to the vet on Wednesday she stayed overnight the past two night as they gave her some medication. She had kidney failure and after responding a bit at first went downhill tonight. She was really suffering so the vet called us in tonight to put her down. Easily my best friend over the shit sandwich of a past 5 years of my life.
Zero tears left, will listen to Jimmy Stewart again, dogs ftw!

Sorry for your loss.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.

Wow. This is NOT roomy!
I lost my childhood dog years ago. For some reason I'm a fan of gallows humor. This helped me:
Quality bump, IMO!

Yeah, me too. I'm on my third dog, all the same breed (OES). She's a four-year old rescue...we adopted her last summer. I'm hoping I have 8-10 years with her [and her with me :-) ]. It's hard to make that last decision, but, in the long run, we remember the good times, and that's why we continue to take them into our lives.

I appreciate these threads. Whenever they pop up, I spend a few minutes just petting my dog and looking at her.

Sorry for your loss Brooklyn. Dogs are amazing.
Dog got put to sleep today. He was 13 yrs +. He "retired" about 4 yrs ago when we had our 2nd child. He just wasn't getting attention so we gave him over to my in-laws. They are retired and live on a golf course. He LOVED going on the golf cart for rides. We were across the country when we gave him up but since, moved back near the in-laws. We had them keep him cause the situation still hadn't changed - he would be 3rd on the popularity list.
He's been in below avg shape for a while - I think I posted in this thread a few months ago when we thought the end was near. But, he perked up and our thinking was to keep going until we knew he was in pain. As fate would have it, I stayed at my in-laws last night. In the middle of the night, he came in and put his paws up on the side of my bed. He couldn't jump up anymore. I pulled him up in to bed. He breathing was labored for a bit, then he let out a big sigh. This sounds cheesy but he looked at me and seemed to say, "It's time. I'm tired." I just petted him until we both fell back asleep. When we woke up and I got ready for work, he seemed ok. But, later today, the in-laws emailed me and said he wasn't eating and it seemed like he's throwing in the towel. They took him to the vet and the decision was made. My wife, who originally bought him as a puppy was away on business coming back tonight. She asked if they could wait one more day but the vet said no. I feel awful for her that she never got to say goodbye to her first baby, one last time. Rest in peace, little guy.
Sorry to hear about your dog. Rest In Peace!
Thats rough, it was definitely helpful that our whole family was there. Sorry to hear that
