We've lost 2 dogs unexpectedly since we voluntarily put one down.

We had a Golden Retriever who was the best dog we ever had. We adopted her from the pound when she was 8 or 9. In 2010 when she was 11 or 12 she got really lethargic and wouldn't eat for a few day so my wife took her to the vet. The vet opened her up and discovered she had adrenal cancer, and the tumors had ruptured. She had to be put down right then and there. The kids didn't even get to say goodbye because we didn't know how bad it was. They left for school thinking everything was ok, and came home to the news their dog was gone. That sucked big time.

We recently lost our 13-year-old Shih Tzu. We knew she was in declining health, but we figured we'd wait 'til her quality of life declined and then put her down on our terms after giving her a "bucket list" day. She went into respiratory arrest in the middle of the night in my wife's arms on the way to the 24-hour vet. Again, the kids never got to say goodbye.

If you all can say goodbye as a family, do it. Don't wait until it's too late.
