Many of us have had to go through the experience of putting a dog down. This is often a very difficult time because we keep trying to tell ourselves “I think he’s fine, let’s not think about this now…”. Well, the time always arrives when we have to make that sad trip and say goodbye to a great companion and friend.
This is a bad time for us and we have often had time to prepare. We also understand the process and were in control. Now, think about the rest of our dogs back at home. In their minds, our other dog was there and suddenly no longer. This can be a very traumatic time for them. Just like us, they morn. They have to understand that they are still safe and that the world will go on, only in a slightly different way.
