    R.I.P. Oscar a.k.a. "Piggy" The Pug

    I know this probably doesn't need it's own thread, but I think he deserves it.

    Our Pug Oscar 10/3/2010-10/8/2012, aptly knicknamed "Piggy", a modern day dog lawn vacuum, snorting like a pig, and eating everything in site, was put to rest today.

    Unfortunately, his bad habits got the best of him, and the 12" hair tie he managed to eat 1-1/2 years ago finally tried to work its' way through his system. He lost the battle, but is no longer suffering. You were a good dog.

    R.I.P. little buddy.....I didn't think I would miss you this much.

    RIP, little buddy. He's probably snurffling around & eating an endless supply of Milk Bones in doggie heaven.

    Well, I think I got the snurffling around part right! Sounds like he liked to live on the edge of doggie danger. Bet his sweet doggie friend is missing him as well.

    I'm sorry for your loss. It's hard to put ending their suffering above extending yours. My thoughts are with you, your family and Piggy.

    Sorry for your loss.. We just put down our girl Emma on Friday and I am still devastated. I swear I get more torn up over dogs than I do people. Must be their unconditional love and the fact that the worst they do to us is bombard us with attention (for attention). Glad your son is better too.

    I think the worst part of putting him down was knowing that he "could" get better. The Vet didn't really know what was wrong, and we couldn't afford to drop $2-5k on sugery that didn't promise he would live.

    He did give my wife signs the day of his death though, and after he was put down we realized what they were.

    Don't beat yourself up, as what you did and when you did it was in the best interest of your dog. We had the same feelings after our dog had to be put to sleep. We humans want to hang on to things and beings and sometimes to the detriment of the loved one. Letting go is part of life as tough as that may be.

    Not easy at all to go through. You did what was best. We had emergency surgery done on our other dog, Zoe, about 5 years ago and while it bought us another 2 weeks with her she wasn't herself and the $4k wasn't worth that in hindsight. Keep talking about the goods times you all had with "Piggy" and the healing gets easier and easier.

    It's easier for me to lose a person than a pet. It always breaks my heart because they don't know what's happening and you can't explain it to them.
    I may or may not be laughing at you.
