So sorry for you, we had to get our 14 year old Spaniel put down at Easter so know what your going through, they are an a important member of the family.
Keep thinking about all the happy memories
Awww this is really sad and brought a tear to my eyes reading all the comments of people that have lost dog. We lost our dog last christmas he was poorly for about 3 weeks not sure what the problem was just didnt walk or run about the same, took him to the vets and he had two injections then starts weeing blood so took him about and had another injection. Then this particular day he was just lay around def not his self am all he wanted to do was sit on my six yr olds knee...wouldnt let him move. Anyway we put him in the bath to clean were he has blood on his legs my two boys was there watching then went to get him out of the bath rubbing his legs and he just went all limp and died there and then...very quick and very sad...i had to get my two boys out of the room quick...i phoned my mum and panick who called the vets i told my boys to go downstairs and all they was saying whats happened to Gizmo...!! I went upstairs and he was dead...breaks my heart now thinking about it...to be honest am crying writing this...so so sad....if only i didnt bath him. !!
I just told my boys he had gone upto the stars and my mum and dad took him before the boys seen him dead.
Anyway u do what is right with your dog...only you know...but dont let him suffer. xxxx am thinking of you all its not easy. xx

Very sorry to hear about your lovely dog. Pets are just so loving and caring, much easier to understand than people sometimes. Hope you remember all the good times and that last smile you got. You will have to give your other dog lots of hugs and reassurance.
We had our Springer put to sleep 5 years ago, it absolutely cracked me up for a few days. We had him cremated and his ashes are with us in the house, with a picture of him on top of the box, so he's always with us and we can see him.
I am so sorry for your loss.
When I first saw this thread for your post I though..here we go again..an owner who can't be bothered with the cost and hassle of dealing with their dog and trying to kid themselves that they are acting in the best interst of the dog to have them put down. It is a regular theme .
But you seem to have been in the situation as us. Our deal beloved dog lost the loss of his back legs..steroids started not to work. We vowed we would never go over to oz til he had died. He died 5 days before our visa came through ....it's as if he knew.
My advice would be the same as Stevo's. We bought our pets ashes over..all 4 of them and they have pride of place in our house with lots of piccies of them. In times of stress of upset..I even talk to them..daft I know.
I was going to write 'you will know when it's the right time' as your dog will tell you herself ..... but it seems that has happened.
I know how hard it is to lose a much loved dog - they take up a huge space in your life and in your heart.
All the best to you all
You have done the right thing even though it wont feel like that right now.
I am so sorry for you and your family (which obviously includes Pete) but it sounds as though you helped Sui move on with dignity and love.
We've been through this a few times now and I still miss them but I still love them and appreciate all the love and laughter they brought to my life. It might sound silly/totally nuts but I feel they are still part of me.
I would suggest you don't dwell too much on the end of Sui's life, enjoy all the memories and lavish twice as much love on Sui's 'brother'.
Anyone who has been lucky enough to have a Sui in their life will know what you are going through now. Much love,
