I'm a friggin mess and i can;t take much more of this.

As most of you know my dog was diagnosed with bone cancer on tuesday and this morning my cat
could not catch his breath and is not doing good at all.

We're left with no alternitive then to put him down as a result of his heart condition and my fiancee works in the feild of veternary medicine as a vet tech
i know i need to be strong for her and i damn sure will be....however yet how much can someone take before they lose it and go out of their mind.

I cannot believe this happening to my fiancee not to mention poor "baby" he's a strong boy .....the Dr tried putting oxygen on him and he wants no part of it and flips out and thrashes around.

At the moment he's on buprinex a pain med and it is not helping the poor little guy cannot catch his breath.

I guess now i need to let nature run its course,..........i know having animals they will die one day......nothing is forever ...yet we have so much going on in our lives how can you catch a break....not to mention we're getting married in less then 6 weeks..........enough already....take care everyone wish us luck.

God bless

Oh no, oh no, oh no Rich,

First Max now your kitty! What the heck is going on? What a huge blow for you and your fiancee. It's ok to cry...both of you. I'm so sorry both of your pets are facing life threatening health issues AT THE SAME TIME!

Please keep us informed what how this goes. We're with you Rich.

Oh man I'm sorry bud.

It's hard to lose anyone you love, even when it is a dear pet.

I hope you show your pet mercy and allow him to end his life in peace. It will be hard, but show him the same love at the end of his life that he showed you throughout his life.

Good Luck!

I feel you Coop. I've had to say goodbye to two cats myself. The most heartbreaking thing is knowing there's no way to explain to a pet what's going on, or why...

Give sorrow words: the grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.
