Mum just called and said that Lassie is in deep pain… He feels pain even when they cleaned his mouth.. I even saw him shivering yesterday… Today is the seventh day Lassie hasnt eaten and drank even lesser amount of water… 😥
Mum & Dad has the intention to put Lassie to sleep, but they are afraid that either one of us (the siblings) may object, hence asking for a poll now. Both me and sis feels that we should just put him to sleep, to end his suffering/torture. Though this feels cruel, but the only thing Lassie knows now is the pain it is in. Aren’t we supposed to give our pets a “Quality” life?
The ‘quality of life’ for the dog is what is important, not the owner’s wish to ‘hang’ on a bit longer to the pet.This is selfishand cruel if the dog is suffering. A dog’s idea of good life is Fun, Energy, Loving Attention and a healthy body with no pain. Quoted from this website: http://www.seefido.com/html/dog_euthanasia.htm
Don’t worry, you’ll see him again and you will both cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
