Welp, it's 2020 and this year just can't seem to stop giving.

We finally had to put down our last dog, Fluffy, this Thursday. His dementia had just gotten to be too much. He'd been slowing down and getting more frantic for months now but had still been relatively manageable. The last week though, he just kept waking up earlier and earlier in the night, and being unable to be calmed down until he had a walk and his breakfast. Normally, I'd be up with him at around 5 am, but he was getting up at like 3:30 - 4 am consistently, and whimpering, pacing and walking into walls until he was taken out. He had basically 3 states of being the last week - asleep, calm when being walked or eating (though even then he was walking in circles or standing staring into space) or absolutely batshit insane barking and walking into walls or walking in a circle all while panting furiously. The last few days even during his frantic periods you could tell his body was just winding down. We made the decision this past Monday and had the appointment for Thursday, which meant he got to have one last day of hamburgers and french fries and fish sandwiches and whatever he wanted.

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

Sorry to hear it man. Putting a pet down is a horrible experience... my mother just went thru that with her 15y yorkie.

Sorry for your loss, Haemish. It sounds like you gave Fluffy a good, full life.

Our very elderly boy is walking in circles half the day now panting and then peeing little dribbles as he turns and turns, which makes him pant more frantically because he was very well house-trained and it makes him feel even worse. I think I'm at "it's time" but my wife and daughter can't bear it yet. He's so unhappy in his dementia, though--he's ok when he's walked/dragged in the afternoon and when he sleeps at night with us but the rest of the time he's like a 97-year old wandering the nursing home wondering if the Germans have invaded Belgium yet.

My sister's puppy which she had for all of two weeks died. She must have eaten something poisonous when no one was looking. Really everything is shit lately.

Restoration is a perfectly valid school of magic!

Sorry for your loss, Haemish and for your sister's puppy, Calapine.

Now I want to go hug my doggo.
