My Fiancee' has had his dog 18 years. She is a litle weiner dog. He can't face that she is dying. He loves her so much that I don't think he sees how much she is suffering .
She won't eat anymore, he she just needs vitamins and dewormer. She won't respond to anyone and he has to pick her up to get her to acknolage him,He says she is just a little deaf. She is skin and bones. He spoonfeeds her wet food with vitamins and cries.
She was his moms, and she adored her. His mom and he were really close,and when she passed she left him the dog.
He woke up this morning and told me that he had a dream that the dog was in heaven. He keeps calling me and asking me to see if she is okay, and telling me if she doesn't last the day he would understand.
I checked all the local vets and we don't have the $140 to have her euthanized.
Does he want me to put his dog out of her misery? What do I do?

You can usually take them to the humane society and they will do it for a very small fee or free. I wouldn't recommend going without him though. Not that he would hold onto it, but I have known men to blame their wives for having the family dog put down, even to save it dignity and pain. Plus, you don't want him to not have the chance to say goodbye to her. It is very sad, but it will make her feel better and more calm if he were with her when she goes.
