I was at the dog park today and this woman came in with her very old misarable dog, she had tumours on the sides of her body, she was barely walking, the lady set down on the bench listening to her music while wearing a headset, I was with my dog on the other side of the park, her dog slowly made it to our side of the park, her dog decided to get herself cooled off and she layed (more like fell) in doggy pool, she was laying there shaking and sipping water.... It was a hot day, the owner was not paying attenting, she was reading and wearing headphones. About a minute passed, the dog tries to get up and get out, but can't she keeps falling, its very slippery and hard for her to move, she is breathing very deep. I wanted to help her up, but tumours were everywhere and I was afraid to cause her even more pain, MY HEART WAS BREAKING watching this misarable creature trying to get out of the pool. It was one of the saddest things I had ever seen, she was so misarable. After she finnaly made it out of the pool she was dragging herself to the grass. Her owner came over, I told her "You know your dog is suffering a lot, she is miserable! She could barely get herself out of that pool, I wanted to help her but I was afraid I would cause her even more misery" The lady said "well she got herself in, that means she wanted it, and she's got bad arthritis" The lady knew what I was hinting at, and she just walked away and left the park... do you think that it was wrong of me to say it to her? I mean I know how hard it is to let our dogs go but isn't watching them to be so MISERABLE is worse? Has anyone ever been in this situation and how to tell the owner its time to let go without offending them?
