So sad for you Carol. It's always a hard, hard decision to take but take consolation from the fact that you are still doing the very best you can for Molly Dog. You will always have beautiful memories.

Aw, so sorry to read this Carol.

Heart breaking isn't it.

Will be thinking of you and Molly Dog tomorrow. :-\

I know what is going through your mind at the moment Carol.
It has happened to me twice and it really hurt inside.

Unless the sun has shone. F C G
That old brown dog is all alone, F G Amin F
Since Old Bill been gone. F C G
And sleeping in the rain F C
Only gives a dog a bad name. Amin F
If Bill were alive C F
Well I know he would decide C F
To have the same thing done. F G
That old brown dog he smells so bad,
Say the people from the town.
That old brown dog is almost lame,
Someone should put him down.
It would be an act of kindness,
You know it's for the best. Amin
You bring a rope, bring a gun,
And it'll all be over
Before the dog can guess.
Could an old brown dog have become wise
Guessed they were all after him.
His hearing was failing, and his eyes
Were fast growing dim.
On the day they came to kill him
He sensed a rabbit on a log.
Did anybody see a rabbit
Chased across the meadows
By an old brown dog.
That old brown dog, tail wagging,
As he laid himself down.
It did not seam to matter,
That the rabbit had long gone to ground.
And there in the summer heat,
His old heart ceased to beat. Amin
And high above the meadow
The skylarks singing
As the spark went out.

Crying my eyes out as I look at my old girl who is now about fifteen and a half and sound asleep at the moment .

Hard decision to make but you know your pet and if the time is right then you are doing the right thing possible.

Thinking of you,

I'm so sorry for you, Carol. It's such a hard decision, but a necessary one. Sadly our pets never seem to go in their sleep, as we hope, but need us to make the decision for them. Our final caring act for them.
Love to you and Molly, Lynda XX

Still broken hearted and crying my eyes out after losing my beautiful girl

I know it's a hard decision and the pain you are feeling, our pets lives are so relatively short but with so much love and joy packed in

Love to you both <3

Sorry to hear this news Carol.
It's so hard to lose a well loved family pet & friend, but you're showing how much you really care when freeing Molly from her pain.

Oh bless you. I have trodden that path with my dogs and it never gets better. All you can do is love them while they are alive and remember the good times when they leave. :-( E xx

Thinking back now , it's strange but the 2 dogs (not one as I said before)I had to make the decision on were rescue dogs.
I chose to have /save them and I had to chose for them to leave me / us.

First one turned on my dad and bit him, two occasions.. first time dad didn't tell me.
But I found out about the second time and had to put dad's health first.:(
He was living with dad and mum when I left home and married,he would only have been about 7 I guess.

Second one, Sandy was a complete darling ,vet thought he was about 18months when I had him for dad,so he would have been over 18 when we had to let him go.
When dad couldn't walk him his normal 3 times a day he came to live with us,tho I used to take him to dad's every week for his 'revisit '. He was happy to stay at dad's or mine..he knew he was loved which ever house !
He was the only dog my children had and they both still have photos of him on their phones and PCs.

Your Molly won't be forgotten <3
Take care Carol<3

Dear Carol


Very sorry to hear this.

Age is immaterial.

Molly is a part of your family and always be. <3

And remember you must have been a very good parent to her because you made her very happy.

Take very gentle care of yourself
My sincere wishes to you and your family

Thinking of you and Molly Dog today, a day you hoped would never come round.

Sleep peacefully Molly, life's work well done.

I will say a prayer for you and Molly Dog today. Our animals are so important, they are part of our family.
This week we thought that we would loose ou Cocker Spanial but he is still with us and doing well, he had a stroke.
