5 years ago, I was married and had 3 dogs. The older 2 died in 2012 and 2013, and now my youngest, "Katie," has rapidly advancing bone cancer, and each day I have to decide whether it will be her last.
It tears me up that she she's never gotten mean, and always gave me her unconditional love. Since I divorced in 2014, she's shared my bed with me more than anyone else. She's heard all my stories, kept all the secrets I've shared, and been my truest and best friend.
I haven't lost her yet, but soon, maybe tomorrow, I'm gonna have take her on her last car ride - to let her finally escape the constantly increasing pain, and let her go peacefully. D@@@ it sucks; but it's the best I can do to repay her love for me.

I'm so very sorry. I can feel your pain in your words. There is no love that can be compared to the unconditional love of a pet.

I am sorry to hear about your dog. Wouldn't it be nice if they had the same life span as people?

Sounds like you have a great bond with her :(

I'm sorry that's so sad I had to put the sweetest dog I ever owned down the day before thanksgiving I know what your going through! It's one of the hardest things ever!
