So sorry for your loss of Lyon, he was such a handsome boy. It's only natural to question decisions when they have gone but you did what was best for Lyon. You freed him from his pain and let him go with dignity and with his family by his side. The loss of a golden is devastating. We have lost dogs in the past, but nothing hurt like losing our golden Daisy almost a year ago. Keep posting here and you will find lots of support from people who understand.

I am so sorry to hear about Lyon. I know only too well, as do many others on this forum, the intense grief and second geussing when we are faced with these decisions. We had to put our Oakley down on Nov 23rd due to hemangio and I am just now coming to terms with it in my own mind, knowing we were charged with the very special responsibility to speak for him and do what was best for him, even though the grief seemed unberaable on that very sad day. Many times I have read on this forum, "a day too early is far better than a day too late". This is what gets me through every day. You knew Lyon was suffering and rather than extend that you made a very unselfish decision to allow him to go and be free of his pain. He had a wonderful life with you and your family and now he is pain free and has joined all of our special pooches at the Bridge. Give it time, and allow everyone to grieve in their own way with the support of one another. Rest peacefully Lyon.
Carol

I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand your grief and feeling of guilt. We lost our beloved Dargo just two weeks ago. He was only 7 1/2 and seemed fine. In less than 24 hours he went from appearing normal to no longer with us. We didn't have to make the decision as nature ran its course. But I understand the feeling of guilt. Just last night I broke down in an emotional state of grief wondering if we would've recognized the signs earlier that we could have saved him. But it's all emotions and it's an emotional time. We would do anything to save our babies and it's difficult they can't tell us when something is wrong or what hurts. It's hard, and the first week is definitely the hardest, but it will get a little easier. Once emotions settle a little it's easier to see the logic that we don't want them to suffer and to appreciate all the good things they brought to our lives. We can second guess ourselves but also, I don't know any vet that will recommend putting down an animal unless it is really suffering. After the initial shock, I researched more about what happened with our dog and realized that it wasn't likely we could've done anything different. It seems like Lyon lived a good long life with you all. I hope it gets easier for you all. Just be there for your wife when she needs you. It seems like you've done and are doing all you can. Hang in there and you have my deepest condolences.
