it time to let her go?

This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

Honey is 14 years and 10 months old. She is still interested in food, mostly human but eats her rice with hamburger meat too. She recently had a bout of diarhea and on the recommendation of my vet I started feeding her this instead of ALS Canidae and she likes it. She walks quite well, climbs stairs and can get on "her" couch. In last few days however she somehow can not settle on it to rest. She either walks aimlessly around or stands on the couch and barks or whines. I spent most of the last night trying to calm her down with no good results. I am crying writing this but do you think it is time to let her go?

Um, Vinnie's mom here. I am crying, too. Caesar, my (almost) 14 year old Mal, was doing the same thing- crying, whining, he couldn't get up if he got stuck, somewhere, I had to pick him up from the backyard, for instance.
I could not bear to let him go.
One day, he looked at me, and said "Let me go". I said okay. I had to have my family help because I was incaple of driving. They had to get him a stretcher at the Vets- He couldn't really walk- even though I gave him pain medicine.
It was time, So sorry to share this with you, but I had to, because he was in pain and I couldn't keep him around because I loved him so much. I know now he's out of pain. dog I'm sorry.

We helped Honey to die peacefully yesterday. It was exactly 2 months before her 15th birthday. For the last 2 days it was obvious that it was time. Thanks to all caring people who wrote in response to my quest. Sophie
