My Sweet Buster had to be put to sleep on October 14. He was almost 15 years old. He suddenly developed paralysis. The vet said he probably had a disk issue. He was unable to use his back legs and couldn't even wag his tail. He was still alert and wanted to eat and did his business when I carried him outside. This made it even more difficult to put him down. I went and got him some chicken nuggets and ice cream before I took him to the vet. He really enjoyed it. I am so heart broken over this and am still grieving. I truly hope the rainbow bridge is real.
