I let him back in about 3 and petted him on the floor til 5 when he went.
Now I know he was trying to belch out the bacterial formed gas.
I'm very sorry for your loss. but take him to the vet when he is sick!

1)you knew he ate things that were bad for him.
2)Your GF said he was sick
3)"swelled up like a pinata on stilts" I think this itself calls for see a VET.
4)you say you didn't know what was happening at the time, but then you said you felt helpless knowing this was it. correct me if i'm wrong. but you knew at the time it was bad. so why not take him to a vet and at least get it checked out.

I'm pretty sure if any of my dogs were this bad off I would be going to an emergency vet or something. "swelled up like a pinata on stilts" c'mon. I really can see waiting a couple hours for it to pass. but from first signs of being bad to the end was 6 hours.

I TRUELY am sorry for your loss. but I totally agree with SweetLeah on that point as well.

sorry if you all think I'm a dick for saying any of this... But I believe the situation should have been handled 100% different. Anyone with a pet should be responsible enough to realize this.

anytime a dog dies it's the owners fault if the owner is a gl4X4 member

Sorry for your loss. Sounds like he had a long life, and you were probably a good friend to him.

Just to clarify, I don't think you should have ran him in for surgery to try to make him better. He was old and had other severe health issues, and I would've let him go also. I just know that I could not let one of mine die like that. I've had to put down a few buddies, its a shitty shitty thing to have to do.
