The Decision to Put Luka My German Shepherd Down.

Blog Post created by Lauralives on Mar 10, 2017

I am so angry, sad, furious, devastated, confused, upset and just plain exhausted.  Ten swear words as the tears fall.  I found bed sores on Luka's right hip area last night.  He is a 12 1/2 year old lover boy.  He had a  left front leg amputation when he was 10 due to a possible injury he may have had. That injury did not occur when he was in my presence.   They say that was the cause of his limb and failure to use that paw said the various Veterinarians that searched, probed, x-rayed and tested him.  It was a good thing it wasn't cancer.  They said it was a problem with the synovial fluid in the joint.  This probably makes no sense and I don't even know why I am writing this right now.  I will probably put him down in the next week.  I will write him a love story at some point.  Right now I just want to scream.  Laura

He has been the love of my life and my soul mate. Through my marriage, divorce, kids leaving, surprise wonderful Grandchild, ups and downs and just every damned and joyous occasion it has been with Luka.  My ex used to call us Mr. and Mrs. Luka
