So my dog died a few months ago. A beautiful short-haired golden retriever called Monty. We bred his mother when I was about 3. I'm 19 now. He was with me for some of the most integral parts of my life, my puppy, my baby. I trained him, when the people who owned the stud dog threw him back at us after they had destroyed him in a matter of a month, from a happy young pup to a cowering mess in the corner. I trained him to walk on leads, he wouldn't wear collars unless they smelt of me. He hated thunderstorms, he would always lie under the table, unless I put my blanket off my bed on the floor and lay on it with him, when he would cuddle into me, shaking and whining until I held him and we both went to sleep. If we went outside, he would always find something for me to throw. Always. Those last months, when he stopped eating, when his arthritis got so bad he could barely walk, when the vet wouldn't even offer us the chance of putting him down, they just made him wait it out in pain. They were he hardest months of my life. But this made me smile as I remembered him, and all of his good points.

tl;dr, you made me smile, OP. Thank you.

Why the **** didn't the vet want to put him down?
User avatar #35 to #24 - mythicdusk (01/15/2014) [-]
I honestly don't know. He was just continuously giving us painkillers for his arthritis, not giving us any idea on how to rejuvenate his muscles, etc, etc. He was a pretty ****** vet in all honesty. He didn't tell us anything.
User avatar #36 to #19 - Dmitri (01/15/2014) [-]
I too would like some sort of explanation about the vet. It goes against what they're for if the vet kept your dog in pain. Though maybe you just went to a really ****** vet...
User avatar #39 to #36 - mythicdusk (01/15/2014) [-]
I think he was just a really ****** vet. The only vet I'm anywhere near is in a little backwater town. He just wanted the money, didn't give a **** about the emotional strain he was putting my family and my dog through. If he did, he voiced it when I wasn't in the room.
User avatar #84 to #39 - Dmitri (01/15/2014) [-]
Oh god... I'm very sorry to hear that. My heart goes out to you and your family. Dogs are awesome.
User avatar #86 to #84 - mythicdusk (01/15/2014) [-]
We swore that we weren't going back to him again. We only went to him because it was an emergency and everywhere else works off appointments. We now watch our remaining dogs closely for any signs of trouble and make an appointment with our closer vet who works with a lot of farm animals and working dogs, but we've also known him for years, so he looks after us.

Woah you hold the **** on there bucko, my first dog was a short haired golden retriever called Monty i did a double take on this post while my brain tried to load what the **** i was looking at, he was literally the best dog i could have hoped for, really gentle with my younger sister brother and sister when my mum and dad brought them home from the hospital, and he would have killed someone before he they could have harmed us, dogs are ******* great.
User avatar #155 to #134 - mythicdusk (01/16/2014) [-]
My Montymonster was a pansy ass little bitch, to be honest. If someone rose their voices, he would cower. But he always had a really big calming effect, because when he cowered, everyone felt bad and made him feel better so we would stop shouting.

It's real hard to do that now.
#228 to #155 - danzey (01/16/2014) [-]
Mine could ****** turn that **** too, if we were telling him to go outside or into the room with his bed he would get all mopey and just sit on the floor staring at us, **** he was a good dog, i cried for like a month when he died.

I'm really sorry about your loss, man. Someone told me to get another dog. I tried to explain to them it really isn't that easy. To be honest, I would suggest you think of them in only the good ways, but don't be afraid to cry. **** , I cried for days, weeks, I still cry now sometimes, when I think of how much I miss him.

We have horses, cats and some other dogs, but the state that my life is in, I don't think I can take the responsibility of another dog. I wouldn't want a small one, either. I would want a medium to large breed, but with me going to Uni in the next year, it wouldn't be fair on the pup for me to be there sporadically.

I'm sorry, man. Just remember the good points. Did they do anything that would make you smile? Make you feel so loved and cherished by this little creature that loves you more than anything else in the world? You got that image, that little thing? Hold onto it. Never let it go.

Example; Me and monty used to go ply in the river outside our house in hot summer days. We wouldn't be able to groom him, he hated getting brushed, so I would take him into the river to cool him down and give him a wash to get rid of at least some of his winter coat. I would throw a Frisbee into the water and he would chase after it, find it and return it, waiting for me to throw it again. Once, I threw it too far and it went deeper than what it should have. He ran up to it, the water was up to his chest by now, and he submerged his head for a good 20 secs to find it, picked it up, ran back to me and put it in my hand, wagging his tail like mad.

It became a thing we did. If he saw me calling him outside, he knew 'river'. When he got too old to go down, he would still run to the gate leading to it, whining and shaking with excitement, wanting so bad to go to where we used to. I wanted to go too, but I knew he wouldn't of been able to handle the temperatures of the water.

I see more than one mention here of "short-haired" Golden Retrievers. Are you all sure you received your pups from a reputable breeder, not a puppy mill or backyard breeder? Goldens do not come in short hair, and it's not any part of the breed standard.

Which wouldn't be a big deal, expect that breeding a dog that isn't to standard is essentially the same as just breeding a mutt. Which there are plenty of already in shelters.
User avatar #326 to #277 - mythicdusk (01/16/2014) [-]
We bred him ourself. We knew the stud-dog. I'm pretty sure he had lab in him, but my nan was adamant that he was a retriever. To me, it didn't really matter what breed, he was my baby boy.
User avatar #311 to #19 - threeeighteen (01/16/2014) [-]
What the **** ! They seriously made your dog suffer through the pain rather than letting him have some sort of relief? Unless there's a real good reason, that's a dick move.
User avatar #327 to #311 - mythicdusk (01/16/2014) [-]
I think he just wanted to spare us the pain of telling us there was no chance, or maybe he just wanted more money from us. I don't really care, I just know that I'll never forgive the man.

what you wrote made me smile, and reminded me of my old dog. i grew u with a German sheppard. my family got her when i was 8 years old. she died abut 2,5 years ago. i catch myself thinking alot about her, and i miss her alot. dogs are one (or maybe the only one) animal on this planet that always are there for you.  she died of cancer at the age of 12 years. after my parents had put her down, i went to funnyjunk and found this gif. on the frontpage, i just broke down. but thx for just writing what you wrote. it reminded me of my dog.

I'm glad I made you smile. It's hard to remember the good points, sometimes, but remember that they're still there. It took me too long to remember that, in all honesty.

My golden retriever died about 2 years ago, and we'd had her since I was 6.
She had hemangiosarcoma, basically a blood vessel cancer that is really common in Goldens, and we didn't realize it until a few days before she died. She stopped eating and couldn't walk because her liver and bladder were hemorrhaging. We took her to the vet when we realized that she was really sick. They told us that she was in pain and that she had maybe a few days to live. We decided it was best to put her to sleep, and take her out of her misery. We called my dad and told him but he works 30 miles away and we didn't think he would get to the vet in time before they put her down. We were all in the room with her, hugging her and saying goodbye, but she was just laying there, unable to move or return our affections, only able to groan softly to acknowledge that she knew we were there. Suddenly we heard the door open and my dad came in, I still have no idea how he made it to the vets in time. When he came in and saw my dog lying helplessly and nearly lifelessly on the floor his legs buckled and he sank to his knees. I'd never seen my dad cry in my (then) 17 years of life, but tears rolled slowly down his cheeks. He'd always simply called my dog "Puppy" and he whispered quietly, breathlessly, just two words: "oh pup." At this my dog's ears twitched. She opened her eyes and saw my dad kneeling 10 feet in front of her. My dog had always had a stronger bond with my dad than anyone else in my family. She saw him and whined. It was a pathetic terrible whine, but my dad was frozen. Suddenly my dog did something I didn't think possible. She groaned and slowly struggled to her feet. She took a step forward, and another, and another, until she was right next to my dad. She laid down again, with her head in my dads lap, staring up at him lovingly. My dad just sat and stroked her ears until slowly, her eyes closed for a final time. She died in my dads embrace. Pic related: it's my old dog Twinkie

I'm so sorry for your loss, but at least she died a happy death. In all honesty, I felt like a coward, because I couldn't be there when he died. I couldn't deal with the pain he was in. And when he finally passed, I wanted nothing more than to be in the same room as him in his final moments, laying with him and petting him, comforting him until he died.

I'm sorry to hear your loss. But happy to know he had a good life. I have felt the pain, mythickdusk, I know it all too well.

Thank you, bro. I tried to give him the best life I could, with school and whatnot always dragging me away. My nan once told me that he seemed to know when I'd had bad days, as I used to go into my room, get changed then go into the living room, where the dogs usually were, and he would always come straight over, rub himself against my legs until I sat down, and he would lay on my feet, grinning up at me with that big dopey smile of his, trying to get me to smile at him in return.

It's been 7 years since my best friend passed away. My parents got him as a puppy a year before I was born, and I grew up alongside him. He was called Monty, and he was a cross between a Beagle, Greyhound and a Border Collie (Crazy 3-way?).

He was a little **** , but he was my little **** . My dad used to take him for a walk to the park behind our house, to watch the Sunday football. Once, he was watching, and saw a black dog chasing the ball, disrupting the game. He thought to himself how disobedient that dog was, until he looked down at the lead he was holding and saw just a collar attached to the end.

He used to jump the back gate and hunt down the nearest butchers.

Like in the picture, I enjoyed being with him in his dog bed. Spending time with my smelly, loud, loving best friend.

He developed a heart murmur around age 10, and it was devastating. He was fine until one day, me and my 7 year old sister were watching the first Harry Potter. Monty strolled in, weakly, and laid down between us and the television. He lay on his side, tongue lolled out. He started to salivate, a lot. My mother came downstairs with the washing and dropped it all after seeing him, bursting into tears.

We all cried together in the bathroom, it was horrible.

I miss him, so much, even if it has been 7 years.

Rest in Peace, Monty.

In all honesty, I would suggest it, but at the same time I wouldn't. It's a really, really rewarding experience, even though they can be little ***** at times, some of them moult like bastards, the big ones dribble like **** , the little ones yap at the slightest sound, but you will never love an animal more than that little sit lying right there in the middle of the floor, giving you a huge, dopey smile looking up at you with only love, and when they go, which they do inevitably do, you will never cry so much.
User avatar #290 to #50 - luthervonappledorf (01/16/2014) [-]
This... this is why I want one. My best friend has one and she's so ******* lovely. Every time I go round and eat she'll sit between my legs and put her head on my knee, slowly inching closer to the plate until she's next to the plate. Then she'll look up at me like "Is it okay if I have some?" and she'll actually wait until I say "Yes."
