Goodbye Bud

I killed my dog, Bud, today. He has always had very serious seizures but they were coming 7hours apart now and this despite his medicine.

This is a photo of Bud on his last walk this afternoon.

Hope you feel better soon.
I have one on the way out myself.

Dreading that day...

I felt like a murderer when I had to make that choice. And the tears... they were bitter.

Please remember that Bud was a blessed creature. He had a home, he had love (& returned it unconditionally,) and he had someone who cared enough to see him through to the end.

Alot of people don't even get that.

I have tears in my eyes so I'm having trouble with the word verification.

I'm so sorry. It's hard to do but even harder to watch them suffer.

How ya doin Walker?
I'm not home yet - gone for weekend. Had a chance to check in on my favorite blogs ---

Been thinking about you losing your best bud.

Don't beat yourself up. If he is like my dog was, he would have stopped you from doing that because he was so devoted.
Arrg... I have tears in my eys.

It's been 2 years and I still have my KVS picture framed in my family room along with the grandkids.

All dogs go to heaven.
And if that ain't true, then I don't wanna go!
My deepest sympathies to you.
Damn that just sucks.
I had an epileptic dog once, 5 years ago he just wandered off-never came back, he was 12-guess it was his time.
No doubt my Steve-o and your Bud are off romping. Pain free and whole.
But that's of little comfort to us left behind right now, I know.
He was a handsome lad, going by the pic.
I'm sure he had a happy life.

Thanks Pam and WTR. Dang, I'm still taking it hard. Feel like a murderer.

If I didn't have other dogs, I would have given Bud more time. But I just thought one of these days the others were going to kill him when he had a seizure. Plus... Bud just was having those seizures so often. Looked awful. Looked painful.

Oh dear! Sorry I got here so late. This is very hard; we've had to do it ourselves. It takes a long time to come to terms with it. My sincere condolences! You must know that you did the right thing. The poor thing's seizures would have just kept getting closer together.

God bless you and help you with your grief.
