ummm...that's really a non-story, man

not to sound harsh, but I'm less convinced it was Kermie struggling to hold on and more her owners keeping her alive. granted, she did look happy in the video.

Veterinarians are hypothesizing that the dog lived so long because of the copious amounts of Motrin prescribed by its owner, a Navy Corpsman.

Argos would disagree with you.

My 16 year old Beagle died from the same type of cancer. From diagnosis to death was about 18 months and the tumor was pretty bad at the start. As far as impairment you wouldn't guess there was anything wrong with her, a few days before I had to put her down she went on a mile walk. Treatment was minimal surgery to remove part of the tumor that was hanging from basically a thread in her mouth, after that it was a viral therapy, pain medication only the last few weeks. Last 6 months she was on only wet food. Last 2 is was basically real meat, mainly cause I saw the article about the guy who gave his dog 1 last perfect day and I did the same type meals, she basically ate every type of bird and mammal by butcher could legally obtain. Obviously each case is different but the author of the article may have exaggerated the feeding a bit, if there was really a struggle to feed Kermie I doubt she would have looked that portly.

That's so sad. The dog looks happy to see him.

Why do all of the quotes in the Daily Mail always read like they were written by KGB agents trying to figure out how to sound like Americans?

If they really loved Kermie they wouldn't have prolonged its misery for a cheap jack Hallmark moment.

That dog was ridiculously overweight.

It's not easy to put an beloved animal down, even when you know it's the right thing to do.

True. Took 7 bullets to put Grandma down.

To be fair, I am not a poor shot. She ran pretty fast for a 92 year old.

Just put our 14 year old collie down yesterday. It was heartbreaking, but it was the last kindness I could give her. Seeing her suffer siezure after siezure was a million times worse.

/RIP Miss Medea
//you were a good dog
///no, a damn fine dog.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a pet, and having to make that decision yourself is so incredibly tough...

That's called 'being British.' Apparently the bulk of their civil service are commie spies. ;C)

Sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Miss Medea, a damn fine dog indeed.  Tough decision.  I'm going to hug my 16 year old plus golden retriever, Buttercup who says she's sorry also.

Maybe I should have put this in better context, but a lot of the Fark links to the Daily Mail (including this one) are actually about American events and contain quotes from Americans. (Daily Mail comments seem to include a lot of complaints about an excess of American news, too.)

The problem is that the quotes from Americans never sound like natural speech or written communication from actual Americans. They sound like survivors of the apocalypse who found a bunch of literature and recordings and are trying to reconstruct our long-dead language. My favorite was the Texas family commenting on something they found in the "rubbish bin". In this one, the lack of contractions seems...weird.

GloomCookie613, wish to offer condolences on loss of your loved Miss Medea.  Damn fine dogs like her & others rest in honoured peace (& comfort after their mortal pains) up yonder in the Summerlands.
10 cats own us, but appreciate anyone's loved pet(s).
