I actually called a vet to find a way to put the dog down with meds and he said a bullet would be the most humane way to do it at home.
We've had to do it on occasion. When one lives 30 miles or more from the nearest vet and that vet is only open Monday-Friday 8-5 there are times when it is not practical or kind to wait. I have to laugh at all the take the dog to the e-vet messages on here sometimes. People forget there are some places that don't have an e-vet. We once stiched a dog who had ripped open his side (100+ stiches) on some fencing with a needle and fishing string. Took him to the vet first thing Monday morning and vet said we did a great job, we saved his life.

This is how my husband and I were raised. We were in the country and the closest vet was over an hour away. I learned you just did what you could when you could and when you couldnt, you let them be at peace.

That is extremely disturbing. I could not handle that, I don't even know how to put it into words.

I guess being from the south where a lot of folks hunt, it doesn't bother me. I've seen some gorgeous ducks that I wouldn't mind having, although I wouldn't know where to put them. Mostly we eat them, though.

i don't really have a problem w/taxidermy. i've got some wings and body parts of birds and wild animals that i've done myself. but one of my pets, no i don't think so. where ever i've been living if a pet of mine passed they were always buried at their favorite resting place in the yard. i've never left them at the vet unless i had no where to leave them. once when i was homeless i left a dog at the vet for disposal. but that was it. that was heart wrenching.

if i lived in a place where it were legal, i would've taken care of euthanasia myself as well. i was raised country as well, their deaths are as much my responsibility as their lives. that's why i always bring them back to what they knew as their homes. once the spirit flies, there are only bones left, it doesn't matter when i finally leave. they are always in my heart and mind.

Oh dear lord... there was a taxedermy show on a channel somewhere that stuffed household pets. I won't lie, I can see how it might be comforting to look over and see your old pal lying serenely in a patch of sun. Y'know, until you remembered that he died twenty years ago. *shudder*

But the rug is definitely a no. I cannot imagine why anyone would be interested in it. Especially with the whole head still there and whatnot. To each their own, I suppose!
