When is it time??

I know that I may get a lot of flack for this, but I have my own opinions.  I 100% believe that dogs should be given the same dignity and respect that humans should be given when they are elderly.
 
I don't believe in latter stage euthanization whatsoever.  It is my belief (and I am allowed that), that the only time a pet should be euthanized is if there is an emergent tragedy such as a nasty car accident with a young pup or dog (for example), who will never get to live their life, and only when there is no hope for recovery.
 
For old dogs who are simply passing of natural causes, euthanization is unacceptable and unfathomable (once again, my belief).
 
When a person gets a dog, they must  realize that the dog will cost a great deal of money to keep comfortable during its end stages of life.  I don't believe that people who cannot financially afford to take care of their pet through their entire life, should own pets.

There are extremely effective pain medications for dogs that take away virtually 100% of their pain.  These injections and other medication such as liquid and pill form cost an extravagant amount of money.  However, they are the answer, not killing off your pet when it becomes old and invalid.
 
Pets should have the opportunity to pass away naturally, without the help of "Kevorkian vets".
 
When your pet gets to the end stage of life you should spend the money to get them painfree first and foremost.  If you cannot afford it, then why did you get a dog?  After that, you should hold them, comfort them, gently whisper to them and let them know they are loved - all the time, until they cross the Rainbow Bridge.
 
I have gone through this only once, and it was the BEST decision I've ever made and I have absolutely no regrets.  It was a very special, and loving time for me and my dog.  It was a time in which I could reflect on this miraculous animal, and he could reflect on his life with me.  He was in NO pain whatsoever.  He passed peacefully in his sleep, right beside me.  I often think of him, and I'm so glad I made that decision, and I know he was too.
 
When people euthanize their aging and invalid pets, who are they really putting to rest?  Their pet's pain or their own emotional heartache? Watching your pet slowly pass on, is not something that is easy.  However, neither is watching a human loved one pass on. If a pet is still breathing and has a heartbeat on it's own it deserves to live until that ceases;  on it's own.

Family dog

NOT a family dog. These dogs are too small to have around children. I 100% disapprove of having dogs under 10 lbs anywhere near kids. Kids are far too aggressive with animals. I won't let my dog near kids.
