Does the dog need a beverage, too? Maybe a martini

Do you know the back story about this? Before I was so close-minded, I too thought this was ridiculous. But think of it this way - what if this dog cannot walk or has some sort of impairment that prohibits it from walking about like a "normal" dog does?
And I only comment because in the last year I've been supporting many dog rescues for medically needy dogs.

If my dog suddenly developed spinal issues and couldn't walk or walk too far, I bet I'd be doing the same thing. Why, because my pets are my family.

Then God Bless her!

I still think it looks odd but sure, Fido could have a condition. Still think he needs a martini. He looks like he needs one. Just because he may be frail or infirm doesn't mean he still can't enjoy a tasty martini.

IF the dog is in so much pain it can't walk, then the HUMANE thing is to put it down.
If a wild animal is in that much pain, it GOES OUT AND FINDS a way to get rid of the pain, usually by suicide. This woman - if this dog is in pain - is causing the animal unfair and inhumane amounts of pain, by keeping it around to suffer. No, I think this woman just pampers her pooch too much.

Is the dog going to tell you it is in pain, AllanVS? You obviously have no idea how innovative vtes can be in assisting in pets that have mobility issues. If you lost the use of your legs, would you like me to put YOU down? I think not.
I don't think you have any clue of what goes on outside your bubble, Allan.

I just want to step in here and I think it's wrong that we can't legally end the lives of humans suffering from diseases such as ALS.
We have no "right to end life" legislation and that's wrong.
Some people call it dying with dignity.
Anyhow, continue with your battle.

Animals DO have methods of telling humans when they need to go. They stop eating. They stop moving. They grow quiet. They throw up. They drop a deuce where they shouldn't. Humans ignore these signs, and keep the animal alive because the human is too attached.
I've owned animals. I've had to put down a cat. I did it quickly, so that Spassy wouldn't suffer. She had a tumour on her brain, behind her eye. They could have done surgery and MAYBE removed it. BUT THE HUMAN, ETHICAL and RESPONSIBLE thing to do, was to help that animal out, and so with many many tears, I held her as the Vet injected her.

I'm not arguing on this point anymore. You fail to grasp the point.

CJ I agree about right to end human suffering.

I have a stroller for my dog and it's simply because:

1. she's too heavy for me to carry around (20lbs) and not big enough so people won't step on her. so putting her in a stroller to somewhere with lots of people is a safer option for her.

2. I've had instances (before I got a stroller) where she was so tired that she had refused to walk anymore. And carrying a 20lb dog in your arms for 2 hours is not exactly what I call fun.
