Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Putting a pet to sleep
My French Bulldog “Frank” had cancer so I had to take him in and have him put to sleep, they gave him two shots, first put him to sleep the second killed him instantly. I was shocked how quickly he died. A horrible experience, something that had to be done but still feel like shit.

Fucking sucks having to do that.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
Sid, perhaps the vet was upset by losing part of his income stream.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
Kipling knew

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!).
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long--
So why in--Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?”

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
I took my Dad's cat to the vet to be put to sleep - she was blind, could hardly walk and stopped eating

I never expected it to be so upsetting and also that the vet was visibly moved - he must have done it hundreds of times but I guess it never gets easier for them

Re: Putting a pet to sleep

Yes, I'm convinced that our gorgeous Irish Setter knew and it was very sad.

She had a twisted stomach. The vet said that it was operable but that it would cost £000's with very limited chance of success and implications anyway. Said it was our decision. We thought about it for a while and decided that it was for the best to let her go and called the vet back... hardest decision we've had to make so far. The vet kindly said it was what she would have done.

We were able to go and pick her up from the vet and go for a last walk with her which was very sad, mainly because she looked fine but just couldn't keep any food down. We then sat outside in the sun on a rug with her while the vet injected her... welling up just thinking about it!!!!

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
i'd come back from tour recently - and my wife had informed me one of our dogs had stopped eating - he was 13

We made the decision to take him to vet ti be put down - made the apt for the end of the week.

We cooked a steak for his last meal - and just to see if he would accept any sustenence - surprisingly he wolfed it down - after almost a week of not eating at all

On our way down to the surgery we walked him at one of his favourite walks and said our goodbyes as tears rolled down our cheeks - our vet is located 30 miles away near are old town, a vet we could trust and had known our dogs all their lives.

At the vets we ticked the boxes for ashes, wooden urn and footprint.

- as we went into the examination room, I asked the vet just to check him over, which the vet did so although thought it was an odd request . . .

turns put dog had a UTI and a extremely high temp

brought the dog home - soppy bastard

he's still fucking here

its wierd resiging yourself to a dog being put down - and then 6 months later the cunt still being here

Yes, and watching the second shot lead to the dog stop breathing is just heartbreaking.

Re your third para, it's complicated. Not least for the real potential for a change of mind according to changing circumstances.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
Yeah a horrible experience to go through but the lesser of two evils rather than let an animal suffer.
It's the way they look at you as if they know the game is up that gets you the worse.
Going home and having to get rid of the food bowl toys and bed also does you in.
Doing the right thing doesn't seem much consolation at first but you know you done right
I had.to put the family ginger Tom to sleep a couple of years back and put him in my sister's brand new car to take him to the vets but low and behold it wouldn't start.
We started wondering if it was a sign but ultimately knew he was suffering so just had to call a cab and get it done.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
One of the hardest things you can do. Making the decision is almost tougher than the experience itself.

1st shot makes them sleepy, they don’t even know it is happening by them time the 2nd shot is done.

It’s a kindness at the end of the day. Something that us humans should be allowed to do when the time is right rather than linger on in pain. Still find it amazing that we don’t have the right to do that and go out on our terms if we wish too.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
This is a long one. Sorry. We adopted a Rescue Dog. Staffy Cross. We were told it had lost all his top teeth trying to escape from a cage it was found in. Apparently he was adopted but the people that adopted him dumped him back at the rescue place. They could have been bullshitting but we thought f&ck it. For years, never had any trouble with him or with our kids. When he passed away we got his ashes and I’ve still not opened the bag with the Urn in it. I work from home so we now do dog minding instead as a bit of extra income.

Hope your not dissing all of us Apsies.
Branded is just a bit of a twat.

I left my last cat far too long before getting her put to sleep.
She had cancer everywhere and had got to stage where she could barely move and was in a huge amount of pain.
I was there when she died and she is now buried in my garden with a rose planted on top.

Just take comfort in knowing the pooch is in a better place now.

Any place away from you is a better place.

Re: Putting a pet to sleep
Piggybacking on what some others have said, I did not put my last dog down when I probably should have. She was definitely getting towards the end (falling down stairs on occasion, losing her bladder). I let her out one morning and she refused to come back in which was very odd for her, so I let her stay out there and went to work. Came home and found she had wedged herself up under a bush far back in the yard to die. I've always felt horrible she went alone, and the loss hits just as hard.

Sorry for your loss and good on you for giving him a great life.
