Took Maxi the staffie cross up to the RSPCA for, hopefully, adoption. Got her a month before I was diagnosed, a beautiful, loving affectionate dog. But, typical staffie - thick as a plank. I cant give her the exercise she needs as a young active dog, I cant give her the training she needs to be socialised, I am not strong enough anymore to hold her back if she decides to piss off. No voice commands in place, purely optional to her. been picking her up all over the suburb, over major roads, shes been lucky. - so, shes gone. Feel like an absolute bastard, hope she finds a good home. Bye bye Maxi.

Dont feel like a bastard for taking her to rspca,unfortunately with cancer there are certain things you cant do,at least she gets a chance to be rehoused, feel for you at times like this it sucks
Hi Old hippy,
I'm with KJ. The RSPCA is the best place for your staffie. I picked up our dogs when noone else was able to look after them. I'm sure someone will take this staffie and love him to bits.
Hi me old friend
shit thats hard, Maxi was with you just before - hugs for you
I've have not been around - had a mild depression last week unnerved me - seemed to come from nowhere but in hindsight propaby building up over the last few months so not been active /in contact
hope your feelings have mellowed with Maxi gone
