Sunrise-Sunset- Tale of 2 Dogs

26 June 2009 at 10:39:52 AM

Readers know I got a wonderful puppy the other day from the Somervell Animal Shelter -a gorgeous black 7 week old husky/lab mix male that is very very cute and on his way to being mess-trained. At the same time, I have a very elderly great dane doggie who can no longer get up without help and who hasn't eaten for the last 3 days. Both of them are in the same room in the house which has a painted concrete floor (thus easy to clean up) and easy access to outside. That's if I can even get him up. GD is so miserable, just whining, drinking a lot of water. I have him laying comfortably on a papasan cushion that has some washable bed protectors on top, but he's not happy. I suppose I could call a vet and ask him or her to come out to the house to put him to sleep, but I keep thinking that he's about to die on his own. Does anyone know if a dog that stops eating is, basically, getting himself ready to die?

Thanks, James. I know at least part of GD's issue is that he wants to be in the same room that I am in but he simply can't even walk from one room to another and he's far too heavy to even try to hoist around. I'll try to give your wife a call later on, I appreciate it!

Sounds like your great Dane's time has come. Having the vet do it is very easy, very gentle, very quick.
