Zeus is gone

....and a piece of me has died right along with him. I have never had such an amazing dog. So protective of me and the kids, yet so very very gentle with us at the same time.

They came out to our car to put him down. First sedated him. We comforted him for that 10 minutes - told him how amazing he is, how much we'd miss him, how much we loved him. I thanked him for always protecting us and always being my shoulder to lean on. We were wiping his nose because it was running and his tounge was sticking out but he couldn't reach it up to his nose. The he got that last shot and went peacefully.

He hasn't rested well in over a week. He was up every 20 minutes drinking water or crying to go out - or just crying standing next to me. I laid on the floor with him to sleep last night. He didn't sleep much - he was so uncomfortable and had such a hard time breathing.

I know it was the thing to do but sometimes I feel I should have done something else. I know...it was his time to go. I just needed to help him get there.

Linda, my sympathy to you on this very sad day.

Zeus :(

My thoughts have been with you all day.
It is the day we all know is coming and we all dread.
May you take some comfort in knowing he had the best life possible with you that he could have possibly had.
You saved him from his previous owners who
neglected him and abused him.
Cherish his memory and remember,
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than to never have loved at all.
God speed Zeus!
Until You meet again.......
I am SO SORRY LINDA.
Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Brigitte

Very sorry to hear this. Even though it was the hardest thing to do, you did make the right choice. Remember the happy times with him, it will help make you feel better. The way you have described him, i can tell he was a great dog.
RIP Zeus.

I know it was a very hard decision, but it was best for Zeus. RIP Zeus, you had a loving family.
