My dad's poodle mix was recently diagnosed with seizures related to a brain tumor. He was fourteen years old. The vet told us that he had time, that he would stop eating when the time came but several days later it began to take use of his legs from him. At that point we knew he would not be with us long. This morning he could barely stand and we made the hardest decision that a pet owner ever has to make. We took him to our vet and we had him put down. He was an excellent dog, a loyal companion, and above all else a great friend. We will miss him for many years to come and it will not be the same without him.
