I have posted blogs before about my dog, Ollie. So I thought I would share my last story about him. On Friday 2nd November I had to make the hard decision to put him to sleep. As you can imagine, this was a very difficult decision to make, but I know it was the right one.
For a few days before I made this decision, he had been having trouble walking. When I took him to the vet they told me he was having trouble with his spine and back legs. They told me I could give him pills on a 10 day course, which may or may not help. Operating on him at his age was not an option. He was 15 years old, so understandably they will not operate on dogs that old. So I had to make the decision to put him out of his pain and put him to sleep. This is a very difficult choice to make for anyone. But I am thankful that I have had 15 wonderful years with him. He has brought me so much joy and pleasure and am so happy to have had him part of my life. Dogs are like your children, aren’t they?
I have lots of wonderful memories of him. He was such a loving dog, and everyone who met him thought he was a lovely dog. For anyone who has or had dogs, you know how hard it is when you lose them. No doubt, I shall get another dog in the future, but not just yet. Thankyou Ollie for the 15 wonderful years you have given me.
