My dog passed on today.
We took Ruby to be euthanized today. Her renal failure was nearly complete last time we had blood values done, but she fought on for another two week, enjoying games with the kids, eating fancy canned food and following me around the house all day. But this morning she was clearly in a lot of pain, incontinent and unable to walk. So we did what needed to be done.

I posted about this a few weeks ago in this forum. Thanks to everyone for the support and advice. Say a little prayer for my sweet pup if you get a moment. :cry:

I've been there and had to make the same decision. I hope you get some comfort from the knowledge that Ruby is now free from her suffering and that your happy memories of her life will still bring you smiles.
