    Be at Peace with your decision.

    I am so sorry that you are going to be losing Jake. Dogs are a big part of owners lives, more than we realize until we have lost them. I lost my border collie/ husky about 3 yrs ago. She had been there everyday to greet me when I got home and always by my side.

    I also lost my dad about a year ago and I support him for weeks up until his time. But when it was time I couldn't be there and I don't think he wanted me there either. It's better to have memories of life than death. Would you want someone to see you die? I think you need to let yourself off the hook. You made Jake as comfortable as possible in his last hours. You have done all the right things. Be at peace with your decision.

    Your memories will last forever. I am very sorry for your loss.

    Mouse, I'm so sorry. I dread that day with my dog, who's been with me about 15 years. It does sound like the right decision, though, if that helps. Being paralyzed takes an awful lot out of a dog's quality of life. I'm sending prayers for Jake, you, and your family.

    Mouse, I am so sorry to hear this. My heart really goes out to you. Ellie, my very old Great Pyrenees, is way up there. Enough that we have to stop and nudge her to make sure she is OK. Almost no teethe now, going blind, and deaf... It is really strange seeing this post as earlier my hubs and I decided we need to go ahead and make plans so we are not caught off guard. We found a pet crematorium and picked out her urn.

    I do hope you know you are doing this all right for Jake. It is an awful hurt and hole when our pets leave us. He will be happy and healthy over the rainbow bridge. Hugs.

    Mouse that is a truly beautiful thought. I know it hurts and it will. Just know your pain of losing a pet is real and you will need to work through that as you will any loss. I lost two this year by surprise, and it still hurts. They are family pure and simple. Keep crying and let it out. I am glad you are allowing yourself to grieve.

    Mouse,

    I am so sorry you are going through this. Please don't feel bad about not being with him as he passes. I was able to be there with one and not the other. I said my goodbye's and had to leave the room. Their memories stay with us forever.

    Zoe
