R.I.P. Joe Rein
- May 24, 2013
The in-laws have had two German Sheps in the last 15 years, both suffered with arthritis, both their back legs went as they were well into the Championship Rounds.Unfortunately arthritis of the hips is notoriously rife with German Shepards and my dog is no different. She's on constant medication and a special diet but if it gets to a point that she can't even walk or is in constant pain (which I e been told will be about a year away) then I'm going to have to do the right thing. I'm not having a beautiful proud dog reduced to that. No fucking way.
I think your decision to have the proud dog put to sleep if she's in more pain is a fine decision. I made the decision with my English Bull Terrier three years ago...remember Eddie Futch pulling Joe out of the Ali third fight? That's what you have to do when your dog has had too much...
Max, the in-laws' dog RIP.
