Just stumbled upon this forum as I try to figure out how I'm going to get by after we likely have to put down our dog later this afternoon. I am a father of 3 boys (11,8,2). We are all devastated, particularly my wife and I.
We adopted our Oskee in February of 2003. They said she was about 1. So we've had her about 15 years. She was seriously abused before we got her. She's been through 4 stomach surgeries for eating foreign objects...needless to say, we've been through a lot together. Yesterday night, she suddenly took a turn for the worse - balance problems, a few falls, won't calm down. Anyhow, we head to the vet in 2 hours.
Wondering if anyone had any good advice for adults and/or kids for coping during the first few hours, days, weeks. I just can't imagine what life will be like in a few hours...I'm in serious pain.
Thanks in advance,
