It's 2:02am. I'm usually up late as I work garveyard shift at eBay. Anyway, I was wondering if you guys had any thoughts about this one topic as it's just been really bothering me and I would like to help.
My girlfriend has a dog, or had a dog. He was old and sick, seemed like he was in pain. So their family decided to put him to sleep, 2 days ago. He happened to be really close to my gf out of everyone as he was always there for her, shared a lot of experiences and just developed a special bond, she's had him for about 10 years. I've known him his last few years and I have to say, he's an awesome loving dog, almost like a person with feelings. (Also, he's a brown rottweiler, cross with another breed, quite rare). Anyway, she made the mistake of choosing stay with him while the Nurse injected her dog twice. He basically died in her arms. I don't think she ever had anything close to anything dying in her arms, especially someone she really loved. She's been crying for days now and I think it is more of the experience and image of how her dog looked as he was being injected that is haunting her, she explained it to me and I'd be bothered and sad as well from the way it sounded. Anyway, I've bought her a puppy about 3 months ago as I knew time would come and her other dog would have to be put down, they've been putting it off for a bit now. She loves the puppy alot, more than me, but it's not the same as a dog for 10 years now.
I guess I just wanted to know anyones ideas or opinions or maybe similar situations?
