Thread: planning for your dog/s should you pass or become incapacitated

  1. #1

    Default planning for your dog/s should you pass or become incapacitated

    not a bright topic but wondering what folks do or have planned in the event that you pass away or become ill for whatever reason and can not look after yr dogs. i know people that have asked/left their dog's to relatives or friends. can be good i guess but often when the work sets in the dog will be relegated to a kennel or worse and if it needs money spent on it for medical issues then the good will often dries up.

    curious as to what if anything people might have in mind.

    sorry about a not happy question but hey talking about real life here.

    cheers any thoughts.

    My in-laws LOVE Meika, and they are dog people so I know that they would really fight to keep her, however Molly hates my father-in-law, she is so aggressive around him and I know she would be extremely unhappy if she had to live with him. I've told my parents that if my partner and I were to both die, they can choose who takes the dogs, as long as they're good people, won't separate the two dogs and are not my in-laws. We know a few people at the dog park who absolutely adore my dogs, and they have said that they'd be more than happy to take them on if something were to happen...

    I have a will.

    But I think there are quite a few friends who would take her on. I think my brother might but she'd have to learn a bunch of unpleasant stuff with him and then she'd probably train him. Ie all that force crap - doesn't work so well with me.

    My working dogs will go back to their breeders who I know will rehome appropriately. My old dog if my mother isnt around to care for her will be euthanaised as she would only be happy with me or my mother and it would be very unfair on her any other way. Same with my elbow dysplastic dog.

    My friend would take my dog into her pack if I had a short term illness, but I do worry about her future if my circumstances changed and I could no longer have her.
    I hate the thought of her going to a situation which is difficult for her.

    My sister would take Maggie, thank heaven as i can't think of what else I could do with her. Neither of us are over supplied with dog oriented family members.

    Bronx would be so devastated that i karked it he'd probably top himself so we could both do bomb dives of the rainbow bridge.

    If the girls at the vets new Mojo didnt have anywhere to go i'm sure they'd gladly take him. Infact if he ever gets stolen they are my biggest suspects LOL !!
