Putting Rocco to rest

Post by agingcrossbower » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:04 pm

Our dog rocco is getting old and contracted cancer and can barely walk. We have decided to end his suffering. Rocco has been to several Boofests so some know him. Please say a prayer to give me strength for going to the Vet tomorrow. It just breaks my heart. Mike

Not letting him suffer is the right thing to do .
Wish we could have the same compassion for humans . And not let them suffer as well .

Mike, he's beautiful! I'm so sorry to read this. Chrissy, my old girl yellow lab turned 12 in June and has some big 'stuff' going on.I get choked up before even responding. I will be praying for your family to get past this terrible heartache. My old girl will always be my baby, my pup. I am so sorry. :(

Sorry to hear about Rocco.
It's never easy to have to make a decision like that, but sometimes there's no other choice.
