Perhaps more to the point, he would have saved the several hundred dollars it costs to have a dog put down in a veterinary clinic-- a strange and threatening environment for the dog spend his last moments of life anyway. I remember one clinic was willing to let me have Dempsey put down on a grass lawn outside the clinic. He was growling at the needle as it went in, and then his big head dropped. I just said, "Good-bye, Dempsey", as I turned and walked away, leaving his big, beautiful, deep-red body lying on the bright green grass in the late afternoon sunshine. One of my hardest days, and I am weeping profusely as I recount the story, even though it all happened over 10 years ago.

Good point. Too bad this was in Southern California. The dog was healthy and lovable and the guy came back looking for the dog.

Oh, that puts it in a totally different perspective: If the was dog was "healthy and lovable," why on earth did he kill him? Moreover, why did he come back looking for him (or her)? Stricken by conscience and hoping to find the dog alive, maybe? As it now stands, it seems like the act of a deeply disturbed individual.

Not sure tossing a dog off a cliff is the best way to put it down. A bullet to the back of head is reasonable if you want to go the nature root. Past that, needle.

Tossing a dog off a cliff is nothing I would do, certainly. I also don't think I could live with the memory of splattering my dog's blood and brains and that being my last memory of him, either. I also have considerable contempt for men who won't be there with their dogs when they get the needle.

Any reason why your wife may be allergic to the new dog when you already have dog, seemingly with no problems of this sort?

Just got this little guy yesterday. Hes 10 weeks shiba / klee kai mix.
Very chill, loves to be cuddled and close and seems to be getting pee pads down already.
So happy.
His name is Eko .

^Cute pup, and a shiba X klee kai should give you a very cute adult dog. If he starts taking an interest in menswear, you'll know the shiba side is predominant!

We are trying to get to the bottom of it. There may be some hope.

We've had her since she was a 7 week old pup. Words like delayed hypersensitivty are being thrown around.

Raphael 9 months and as strong as two Ox.

False alarm. The Allergist ran major tests. Not allergic.

Looks to be formaldehyde from her nail polish.
