So sorry for your loss.
I know your pain, I had to put my beloved Labrador, Shelby, down a few months ago and it still hurts some days. The other two dogs looked high and
low for Shelby after she was gone. We had actually gotten the ACD in part to be her buddy, and he doted on her. At least he and the Shepard had each
other after Shelby was gone.
I don't think there was a single day where Shelby's big ol' rudder of a tail wasn't wagging. Even when she could barely move after being bitten by a
rattlesnake, she'd still manage a few thumps of her tail when you walked in the room. Through love and caring she survived and that big ol' tail
always wagged. But one day the pain just got to be too much and her tail didn't wag anymore, and I knew it was time. She had lived a long and happy
life (14 years, which is pretty long for a Lab), and it wasn't fair to her to ask her to endure any longer. Had to say goodbye that day, and it was
the hardest thing I ever had to do. Lost four dogs before her over the years, but she was by far the hardest. I stayed with her and comforted her
until the end...it was the least I could do. I know she would have gladly done the same.
