Thank you all for the kind sentiments! Bailey was put down yesterday morning. I am at a lost and can feel his absence but I remember all the funny ways he was at home.
He was unable to get up on his own since last Tuesday, and may have had something coming from the spine, degenerative myelopathy, which is why he didnt have any sensation on the right leg at first, then the left. I was his nursemaid for more than a week, it was exhausting but I kept him clean and as comfortable as I could.
He was sedated first, which helped to have him fall into a deep sleep, so he wouldn't feel any pain when the final injection was given to him 20 minutes later. Of course, waiting for this was the hardest part. At least he didnt knwo what was happening.
I was lucky to have had him in my life!
