My Mom & Dad had to put Alley(my dog from my single life) down today. She was 9 years old. It was a freak thing that happened and my dad found her pushed up against the couch unable to walk. She ended up having a slipped disc in her spine(or something to that extent) and there was only a 40% chance if she had surgery that it'd help. But at the same time the dr. said that he had a guy bring a dog in 4 weeks ago for the surgery and he had just brought the dog back to put that one to sleep because it didn't work. Either way i know my parents did the right thing although i don't think they think it's the right thing...it was definitely the way to make sure she wasn't in pain for a long time. I just hope she's in a better place now..in puppy heaven!
