We are putting our 10 year old German Shepherd to sleep today. She has hip and stomach issues. She's also deaf and can't see much. We have a 16 month old who she growls at if he sneaks up on her (only cuz she can't hear him anymore). She's a bit nutty too, dementia I'd think. She no longer listens to any directions or commands, and she's totally defiant.
We recently moved from her lifelong home and it seems to have really screwed her up. She just isn't comfortable here. She can't be left alone and must follow me where ever I go or she whines and barks. I mean I can't even tie her outside. She barks if she can't see me. I married into her, but she has chosen me as the leader. And I have to admit, I hate her and love her all at once.
My heart is breaking because I think its wrong, but we just can't deal with her craziness. She causes us so many problems. It was his choice, but I want to run away with her now...

Unless she is dying or is in a great deal of pain, then yes, I think you are doing the wrong thing. I would try to find a place for her. There are dog ranches that you can take your dog too when they have several health problems to live out the rest of their lives.
