We had to have our dog Stella put down this morning. She was 14 so getting on a bit but generally was OK. Unfortunately she had a fit yesterday, and although she seemed to recover she had another one at home this morning, and then another two in the car on the way to the vets. Very sad :(

Sorry to hear that mate :( It's always so sad when something like that happens. I walk my boss' dogs a few times during the week and a sadly two weekends ago she had to have one put to sleep due to a twisted stomach. It's like losing a trusted friend :(

There's only one thing that's rubbish about dogs, that's their life span being so short in comparison to their owners.

Too right mate. Hardest thing I've ever had to to do was make that call at the vets. Could have kept her going for another few months with huge doses of drugs, but that would have been so selfish and unkind to her. I was holding her at the end and telling her it was OK. Broke my heart to do it, but I know it was the kindest thing to do.

I lost my rabbit a couple of years ago. He'd been through a lot (two lots of gut stasis, where we basically had to syringe feed him every hour, on the hour. The second time it lasted for approx 17 days. They're not meant to live past day three) and ended up with testicular cancer.

We had it treated and he had a full recovery. We were over the moon. Three months later, I came down to uncover him in the morning and he was just lying there, still. I've never been so heartbroken before. I get confused with when his 'birthday' was, but I think he was nearly six.

Most people just think 'how can you get attached to a rabbit?' but he really was more than that. Used to run around with newspaper in his mouth, went mad for raisins (if you shook the raisin box he started running around like crazy), knew when I would be coming home from work and would be sat there waiting for me. Pets really do show far more kindness than most humans.

I do really feel for you JimJam.

Ack only just caught this, sorry to hear about your loss JJ. My sis's dog (Jack, absolutely mad but absolutely lovable collie) is on his last legs. Still fighting but it feels like it's a matter of weeks rather than months. He's been there the whole time her kids have been alive and he's always been really gentle with 'em. I don't see him as much as I'd like but I'll be gutted when he's gone, poor bugger.

Thanks mate. Stella was absolutely wild when we first got her from Battersea, in a good way. Terrible (but brilliantly fiendish) food thief as well ! When we had Izzy she became so gentle and protective of her. She had a beautiful nature.

So, we finally got a new dog. Another rescue, although this one was through an ad in the paper rather than a dog rescue place. By total coincidence she was already called Luna (our last dog was Stella). Really nice having a dog in the house again :)
