    Firstly, huge hugs..
    Having been through this 6 months ago I know how your feeling... The battle between head n heart is horrible. We had to put our 8yr old boy down after he suffered a stroke from a Tumor and didn't respond to the meds and it was one of the hardest things I have ever done.

    Our boy was already at the vets due to them trying to treat the stroke so had already been hooked up to a drip, once we made the decision it was all pretty quick, our vet brought him in wrapped in his blankets, gave him a needle and while we were patting/hugging him he just slipped away to sleep.

    I would leave the decision to the kids, but be prepared for the grief that comes with losing a pet, for me it was overwhelming.

    Take care, whatever you choose to do know that it is the right choice for you & your puppy.

    OP, absolutely have the vet come to your house. It'll be worth any extra cost.
    I was with my parents when they put down their dog a couple of years ago. She was a 13yo corgi. She was the centre of their world and there was no way they were heading to the vets with her.
    He came to their house, we all sat together with her on the floor and he slowly did his thing, first the anaesthetic, then the drugs. It was awful/peaceful at the same time. My parents cried and cried (we all did, vet included!, he'd been her vet her whole life) My uncle made a box to bury her in and once mum and dad had enough time with her, we gently boxed and buried her.
    Take care, much love xx

    We just got home and the vet will be here soon. In the 3 days I've been gone, I'm shocked how fast she's deteriorated. She's skin and bones and can't walk. She's laying there looking so sad but she still tries to wag her tail At least I know it's her time for sure and I don't have to feel guilty. I'm fighting back tears now so I don't know how I'll be when it happens.

    I am thinking of you and your family. I am glad you got home in time but so sad to hear your doggy's decline mirrors that of my beloved cat. May her passing be peaceful and love surround her.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't be sad that she has gone, but smile because she was here. Happy memories xX

    She's gone. Thanks so much for all your support and stories so I knew what to expect. It was hard. My oldest son stayed and was OK. My other son and daughter went to my friends next door. My younger son was inconsolable when he came back but he seems OK now and is able to talk about her and look at photos. I don't think my daughter quite gets it. Just when I calm down something sets me off again. I imagine it will get easier in time. Poor DH....first time in nearly 17 years together I've seen him cry
