Putting a beloved pet to sleep when it becomes inconvenient [specifically, a dog with weakness leading to difficulty standing or remaining standing while eliminating waste] seems different than the state [or whoever] putting hoards of unadoptable dogs and cats to sleep.


It isn't my dog, it's my friends'. And it may get ugly - the woman seems to want to put the dog to sleep, and I suspect the guy at least will have issues with that, if not absolutely refuse.

Doing my best to stay completely out of it.

I think it is stime to put an animal to sleep when they are no longer happy with their lives. They can't move, they can't eat, they just lie there waiting to die.

If the dog can't stand and isn't wagging its tail it may be time to let it go.

It is sad. I cried when I put my cat to sleep. She had a good life, but in the end she was so sick she couldn't move and bugs had begun to crawl on her. That wsn't a life anymore.
