Today is a shitty day. I'm took my 12 year old Rott Blitz to the Vet at 3:30 today to have him put down.
He was struggling for the last couple months but never appeared to be in any pain.
Since the weekend he could barely get up and wasn't really eating so my wife and I decided it's time.
I'm going to miss him.

My sincere condolences, I've been there before and know how you feel. My own "little buddy" is approaching 12 and the day will come sooner than I care to admit when I'll be going through the same thing again.

So sorry to hear this. We're all here for you, bro', we've been here before. Your boy, Blitz, knows he's loved. Stay strong.

It sucks.

The only times I have cried in my adult life were when I had to euthanize a dog and when I found out my best friend from HS/Bass player in my first band had died.

Sorry to hear that, Man. Not an easy thing to have to follow through with, but it's an unfortunate part of life.

12 years is a pretty good run for a big dog. Sorry for your loss. :(

Condolences.

Putting down a companion animal is one of the hardest things I've experienced in life.

So sorry. Losing a best friend is the worst feeling in the world but if it was time, you know in your heart you did the right thing.
You`ll see him again.

My condolences... what you just dealt with is a very tough kind of thing to go through.

Stay strong.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I have a "little guy" who is 13, so I may have to face this before long. And, I've had to have my best friends put down in the past and it is heart breaking.

Just remember that there is most likely an animal shelter with lots of good dogs that need "forever homes". Adopting one might help you. No as a replacement for the friend that is gone, but as tribute.

Oh man, sorry for your loss, my sincere condolences.

I know first hand how bad it stings and it hurts just as much (to me) as losing human family members. Hang in there...it was a rough couple of weeks for me but time heals everything.

Haha! I lose a few tears almost every day. Not full on snivelling or anything but....
