It would kill me to know she was put down strictly due to her age by people who were not at all familiar with her. Some older dogs are in way better shape than young ones are.
This entire thing is too upsetting for words. I will make DAMN sure that if any of my dogs are still around when I am gone and Amanda cannot take them, they are to go with me. I am writing my will this weekend, I dont have crap to leave anyone but I will make sure my dogs are taken care of even if I have to do it myself.
That may sound contradictory but at least the decision will be made by people who know them.
Ripley is 14 at the end of the month...and I'm guessing he and Daisy are about the same size, and temperament. He wouldn't be willing to be put down just because he's a little shaky in his pins...and he'd go to a new house willingly and get into their crap too.
This is one reason that John's been calling border collie rescues and others in NC, (that no one seemed to give a crap about)...so someone can evaluate her...someone nearby that knows dogs.
If putting her down is the right thing, by all means...I'm behind it 100%. But I need to know that is indeed the right thing.
