My dog is dying at a vet's right now, and I need to watch a film to cheer me up. Please help. Ta.
I don't know if a film will really cut it.
Get really drunk and listen to loud music instead
and don't fancy anything too loud... But thanks for the concern!
The original Bad News Bears then. It's got Rorschach in it.
its a wonderful life
It helped, but I know it too well now.
God, the last few months have been gash.

Films can be pretty good at changing your mood-especially if they're particularly involving.
i second this. the guy in the film shop recommended it to me when i wanted something uplifting. (bit late now probably though)
I went for Stand By Me in the end, it was wonderful.
If it's not too late.
Sorry to hear about the dog, mine died last year and I still remember my whole family standing outside the vets crying and crying. My sympathies.
She's still alive as far as we know it, but it's looking bleak. I'm staying calm, but still, it's really upsetting... :( I love her.
look how beautiful she is
may I ask what's wrong with her?
we might have to put one of my cats back home to sleep soon:/ its either that or an operation, he is currently on antibiotics atm. I ofc vote for an operation but it's not only my decision. And you never know what happens during it either:/
also had to put my cat to sleep last year and it was horrible, I know how hard it is!!:(
We woke up this morning, and she was just sat in my bedroom, which she never normally does. She stayed up there for 15 mins or so and I stroked her or whatever, but then she just didn't want to come downstairs, even when me and my parents tried to get her down. Eventually she came down, but a few hours later when my mum went out to hang the washing, Kim (my dog) followed her out, walked over to the corner and kind of walked into the bushes. My mum got her out, but then she just laid down in the grass and would not move for the life of her :( My mum panicked and shouted me, so I ran out and tried my best to shift her. I went and got her dish of water and gave her water cupped in my hands, and she drank absolutley loads of it down. My dad managed to get her to move by suggesting a walk.
We got her straight in the car and took her to a vet, and it turns out she's got a cancer on her spleen, and she's lost alot of blood and fluids. She's not in any pain at the moment, and they've got her on a drip to try and make her strong enough to be operated on tomorrow morning, and I guess we'll see... :(
Aw that's so sad:( especially when it comes so sudden too! That's sort of what happened to my cat last year. Suddenly one day he didn't want to move as much, hardly ate and he used to eat 24/7. Would not even drink. Just layed in bed basically. Then 2 days later we went to the vet and he had some sort of cancer in his stomach that we had no idea about and we just had to put him down at the spot. It was so so horrible:(
I really hope the best for your dog, stay strong!
Shepherds are the best. I grew up with a German Shepherd. He was called Khan. Most handsome. Best dog ever. When we moved away the whole street got burgled two weeks later. You see, we had quite a big garden and he'd patrol around. The burglars had no idea which house he belonged to. He was very vicious towards those he didn't like. Scared off quite a few ne'er do wells.
For such amazingly strong dogs they do tend to be quite poorly.
Best wishes to her from me.
She ain't vicious at all, to nobody... She's let a few burglars into the house quite a few times, but she's just so wonderful and intelligent. It's always the way that you realise just how much you love a thing when you're so close to losing it. I'll let you know how she gets along when we call the vet in the morning.
I love dogs like that. So much personality to them compared with little yappy rats.
Sorry m-dizzle. At least it came as something natural and gradual. I can't think of anything worse than my dog running away and never seeing him again.
I know. It was a shock, because up until yesterday she's been a completely and utterly healthy dog. Just a few weeks ago people were really surprised to hear she was 13, because she was so healthy and enthusiastic and stuff. It's just clearly a symptomless cancer.
They've said she's okay enough to operate on this morning to try and remove the cancer, but if it turns out once they've opened her up, that it's worse than they thought, they just won't wake her up.
this thread is sad. hope you are alright
sorry to bum everybody out.
sorry to hear about your dog, i'd be devastated if it happened to mine. love dogs more than people
dont really know what else to say, really bad at stuff like that:(
