The older we get, the more accepting we are that this is so, but it still hurts like hell at the time.

You are probably right on that one Whip, for all the joy it can bring, it usually ends up in pain of some kind.

Must be something wrong with the dogs in pushchairs, as most dogs benefit from a good walk and exercise.
Only time we put our dog, with a comfy pillow, on a wheelburrow, .....our dog was getting onto being 16 yrs of age, and had some creeping paralysis, so we used to push him around in a wheelburrow. He loved it. Perplexed as he didn't know what was going on with his own back legs, poor diddums. In the end, the paralysis went up to his front legs and then it was awful. He was being looked after and fed but it was cruel, I couldn't let him suffer, in fact, I cancelled the vet a couple of times, as I couldn't go through with it, but in the end, it was obvious he had to be put down. (We don't even do that kindness to humans!)
The vet said, it's a shame, as he seems very 'with it' in mind. I miss him, was a wonderful blue healer. Lived a good life on the property.
had to do this today with my dog " boss" a lab

everything working correctly but his back legs failed totally never to work again

all in the space of a couple of days

his tail was still wagging this morning but had to be hand fed and given water in a cupped hand

other lab is pining already after a lifetime together
That seemed sudden in the space of a few days!
It took a couple months for it to go from almost bad to really bad. Sorry to hear your is going through that. I still miss our dog and was actually talking about him today to one of the gals in our bus tour group. It’s nice to be able to talk about your family dog’s life and the antics they got up to. Memories keep them close to your heart.
