You are officially the biggest piece of demented shit on this website. Your comments in this matter speak volumes about who you are as a person and you will never come within 100 yards of any member of my family.
Doug talks big and I thought he was a d bag until I met him in real life. He is a good family guy that works his ass off. He has a strong sense of humor that could be mistaken for what its not on here without knowing him. After being around him a few times I like him, he is a good guy. Just my .02......

It is the pub I fully expected somebody to say it. I am also supprised nobody has said after it passes donate it to immortal.

Thanks for all of the info. I called multiple places and many did not offer euthenizing services and many subcontracted the cremation so it was 300+. The few places that could help me today were 125 just for the office call and 200-300 to put her down plus cremation.

Unfortunately because of the few places that could help and the cost I have to waite until tomorrow to take her to the humane society. I gave her some baby asprin to help if she is in pain and she is drinking water if I take it too her. I hope she makes it.

Ya this thread definitely made me upset and brought back the memories of my last dog. We put him down about 2 years ago. He was the nicest dog and although he made it to almost 13 being a English setter and hunting all time was hard on him. He had a disease eating his muscle on his rear hip and also developed a tumor so he wouldn't eat or drink. It was sooo hard saying goodbye for the whole family but my parents didn't want to put anymore money into an old dog. After about 6 lonely months we got another English setter and although hes not the same hes a great dog and were happy.

Good luck to you silver bullet hopefully its nothing too bad and your buddy can live another year

sorry about your dog! thats a rough one. i just went through this with my wife and her cat. we dont have kids and it was her baby. she did not take it well.

i dont agree with wrapping it in garbage bags and throwing it in the trash. thats just cold blooded right there!

seems like it could be humanely "euthenized" at home though.

keep up the asprin till you go to the vet anyway, im sure it helps.

Well we had to go to the store to get the kids food for lunchs. We were gone about an hour and she passed while we were gone. Looks like she laid down and went to sleep were we left her and she passed in her sleep. My wife is not taking this well neither are my kids. I can handle the dog but I cant handle my wife and kids crying. It breaks my heart to see them upset.

Someone above said the place they had theres cremated at made a mold of her pawn. Where was this place?

This. If money is an issue, and it between paying a vet or feeding/housing/keeping the heat and lights on for you family, I would recommend handling it yourself, in a compassionate manner.

I've had several pets dieing from old age. The one time I took my dog that wasn't to the vet 'to get checked out', after he gave me a diagnosis of advanced bone cancer in his legs. I stepped outside to call a friend that had a dog with a similar diagnosis. When I came back in my dog was dead.... a "Miss understanding" they called it. The vet ended up with a black eye, and a fat lip.


If I was in your spot, with my wife, I'd sit down with the kids, and explain that he is very sick, and won't get better. Explain in the way your family believes is appropriate about afterlife and allow them to make their peace. Then separately from them, I'd take fido to his favorite woods spot. If this is with in sound range of the kids, have your wife take them out... Mcdonalds, whatever... Bring his favorite blanket, toy, leash, ect. Hang out with him, snuggle him like the day you got him. Tell him how much you love him... ect. Bring your .45. Once you've made your peace, and Fido is resting peacefully on his blanket, with his toy between his paws, step back, and as humanly as possibly, dispatch your buddy, and release him of his suffering. Wrap him in his blanket, bring him to some place special to you (that's your property, or you have permission to bury him on) and give him a proper burial. I've had to dig a 6 foot grave in the middle of February. It's hard, but I felt it was respectful to my dog to work hard, for his dignity. I found placing some logs over the grave was a more natural marker, and deterred wild animals for digging stuff up.


Best of luck to your and your family in this tough time.

The emergency vet at Allen Rd & Southfield made a paw mold for our dog last year.

very sorry to hear Silver Bullet...i'm up in grand blanc.
the vet was cross veterinary clinic off of hill road and us23 (i think exit 90)
but as i just saw on this thread someone explaining it is most likely just plaster of paris and they just stuck her paw in it to get the paw print
if you are gonna take time off, i'd just go to michael's or other craft store and get teh stuff and do it myself...put him in the garage tonight and you can get print yourself tomorrow morning..
just my .02
again, sorry to hear and good luck brother...

ps...there will never be another dog like yours, but get another one any way...every dog is different
