Today at 3:00 PM I put my dog of six years to sleep. I got Drex in 2004 when his previous owner was out of the house for too long during the day and Drex needed constant companionship. Luckily I never left the house and we fit together well. He was a great dog, preventing at least one break-in at my condo, and always being loving, protective and affectionate.
He had his neurotic moments, like the time he chewed through drywall and insulation during a thunderstorm, or the time he opened a locked door (he was quite bright) and climbed the back fence during the Tornado of 2008, but he was a great dog through and through. Over the past year (his 14th) he entered a marked physical and mental decline and it got to the point of being cruel to let him continue.
Godspeed Mr Buddy.
