Ask yourself How do you feel about this???? I changed my post as I was saying to leave God out of this.. But if all that fantasy land helps you get
threw then so be it.. Who am I to tell you.. So I changed my post a little bit to reflect my empathy on your dealings here.
Honestly.. If you are going to have a pet, its your job to take care of that pet! ITs a shame that people get pets and just put them down because
they can not afford the pet..
If that is the case.. DONT ever get a pet again!! Please dont do that to those poor little creatures! They have a soul, and feelings!
IF your pet is in extream pain, and is not living a life that would be what some of us to consider to be a "good" life.. Then you should find the
pet a loving home, or someone who can handle it..
DONT PUT THE PET DOWN for gods sake!! my god man!!!!
Pets to some are like children.. Would you put down your son or daughter becasue of a problem that could be fixed?
Theres so much more you are over looking, because you bring God into this issue..
People seem to forget to have faith in themselfs.
And have faith in their own good judgement!!!
Belive in yourself, and love those that care about you!
Pets and humans alike!!!
Im sorry you are going threw this.. AS I have had many many pets.
And all of them costed me alot of money.
But you know what.. it was my job to take care of them.
I took them in, and its up to me to take care of them as I would take care of a human being!!!
Animals need to be treated as good as we would treat humans..
But sadly enough, people in this world cant even treat other human beings with empathy and compassion.. So its very hard to expect people to treat
their pets in such a matter..
I hope everything goes well for you, and your beloved pet makes it threw.
But dont put it down simply because of money issues.
Get another job.. Do what you have to do.. its a member of your family.
And thats something you would have to face, by looking at yourself in the mirror each day..
I know in my heart I can look myself in the mirror each day and know my pets love me with all their little hearts.. And I love them the same!
Pets do not judge, they do not do many things we as humans befall..
WE can learn alot from out pets..
I wish you the best!
8 years is not that old for a pet... Now I could see you wanting to put the pet down if it was like 16+!
But most my pets have lived up to 20 years!!!
Thats right 20 years most my dogs lived!! becasue I have done everything in my power to take great care of them..
And yes, I went without much to offer them much more!!!
Ive gone without getting a new pair of shoes.. Or going out to dinner every night..
having a pet is a personal sacrifice! And if you can not sacrifice that part of your life.. You should not own a pet..
Not directed at you OP.. but in general.. ya know what I mean?
Edit--- Changed my tone a little bit.. But I dont understand why people use GOD and faith as an escapegoat on so many issues???
I know what helps me.. and I belive in myself.. And have Faith in my own good will to people, and animals alike.
Dont just kill it becasue you can no longer afford to care for your pet.
Find some nice old lady or a nice old man that will give it a loving home.
You claim to be religious.. Yet you are thinking about putting down an animal who has been a part of your family for this long..
That just doesnt make an ounce of sense to me..
But then again, most you religious folks dont make much sense to me.
Yet if it helps you get threw this wicked world.. So be it..
I can not talk any sense into you.. But I can give you some good advice about pets, and how you should be twords this animal if you truely do care
for it as a part of your family...
from a Biblical standpoint, How does the euthanasia of pets stand with God?
DUDE??? Seriously? Why are you asking such a question?
I think its comman sense.. Its murder!!!
WHy ask how it stands with GOD.. How does it stand with you? Are you okay with murder? Of a dear family member?
That animal counts on you David! And its your job to care for your family member! Get a second job.. Or find it a loving home. As I have to
question how much you really care about this animal of yours when you make a thread asking how GOD feels about it.. What a shame..
Why do you folks always put so much into GODS hands.. When GOD gave you a mind.. and a heart.. I suggest you USE IT.
And stop using GOD as your personal escapegoat!!!
