So Riley has his final vet appointment on friday. I'm seriously reconsidering but I know if I do, things will only escalate like they have been. I can take him for walks until I'm dragging him home, he's so tired and he'd still manage to chew himself to peices and lunge and growl and be highly unpleasant towards the other animals as well as people in the house who dont feed him. I just wish my husband could be here for this as Riley is "his" dog.
Feel bad that there's nothing I can do to help Riley get rid of whatever demons are floating around in his head. I emailed the vets office explaining I have an 8 year old male GSD mix who is anxious to the point of tearing himself up, fear aggressive and unpredictable about who he's going to lunge at and growl and that these issues have been increasing steadily and just want to let him go peacefully so he's not stressed out so bad he's shaking and/or throwing up. He doesnt even have to be the one in trouble anymore for him to make himself sick. I'm really at a loss as to what else to do for him. I may not always like him very much but I do love him and I feel like I've failed him, though I also know I havent. We knew when we brought him home that he may have some issues but nothing we couldn't handle. Him being so constantly stressed out so easily now... letting him rest is the best thing, right?
