If you want to put them down by injection, find a a veterinarian who will do it at home.
You don't want your dog, who you obviously care for, to spend it's final moment in a clinic.
A properly placed bullet is much more humane.
Dead center. Rear of the skull.
Reality can be dark.
Just the facts.

I feel ya. I can't read about losing pets without bawling my eyes out for my fur babies who have passed. If all dogs ( and cats and bunnies and birds)go to heaven I've got a wonderful reunion ahead of me .
I'm so very very sorry. Here's one of my tears for you. I'm really crying 😢 right now.

Try a few things before you let go.

When dogs are in pain they usually pant.

Check her gums, if they are not blue she is getting oxygen.

My Heeler lived over 20 years I just made him comfortable.

Besides, she wouldn't trade you in cause your getting gray...

I'm not trading her in for being grey or old at all!

She's getting to the point where she can't walk (hardly at all). She is now having difficulty controlling anything on her back end (except her tail...which always wags), so she's struggling with walking, bowel movements and urinating. And she's feeling ashamed as a result. We don't get mad at her at all, but she's ashamed all the same.

She's getting plenty of oxygen and her gums are pink as they should be.

ETA...she's a proud champion hunting dog, and I always look at things from a 'quality' of life perspective, rather than 'quantity'. IMO humans strive for 'quantity' with pets often times over 'quality'. To me that kind of seems selfish and cruel.

Also, I'm not doing anything at all just yet, but I can tell the time is getting near, that's all.

I didn't mean to imply she wasn't being cared for.

The end does eventually come.

But, if you can control her pain you might get some more time.

I was just trying to encourage you.

This isnt easy, best of luck. Sorry for your friend.

OK, FCD, you got me in tears.....

You are facing just such a hard decision soon. You'll know though.....you just will....she'll tell you somehow.
I have faced that impossible decision more than once...and damn


But, just so you know....


Dogs never die. They don’t know how to. They get tired and very old, and their bones hurt. Of course, they don’t die. If they did they would not want to always go for a walk, even long after their old bones say:” No, no, not a good idea. Let’s not go for a walk.”

Please, give her a hug for me....cherish her fur and her dogness!!!

Absolutely WILL do!!

Thank you!!

Sixteen years ago I remember when people would say, to me, as she was a pup...will she HUNT? And I would be like..."Here, watch this!!. She was only 8 weeks old at the time, but her instinct even trumped her ability. It was March at the time, and she'd go in the water, no matter how cold...even breaking ice.

Never had a dog like this before. Even all my friends say she's legend. All she's ever wanted to do was, please. She'd expend all of her energy getting a single bird...just never giving up. She'd go into the worst cover imaginable, but she'd always come back with the bird...even if we left for a half hour or so...she'd find it. It was her personal mission.

Shelby is a dog many people will never have the good fortune to own. She loved what she did, and she loves it still...even though she's unable to do it.

That she breaks my heart should be expected.

Shelby is legend.
