My question below is really sad. If you don't wanna be bummed, better not read on.
 
That would hurt pretty bad, but it's always possible with a very old dog. He is fine for the most part considering his age, but I keep a pretty tight rein on him, especially since the older he gets the more he has convenient hearing loss...it actually has degraded the way I would expect it to, so I have to use extra effort get his attention sometimes. He's a bit achy so no brisk walks. He just moseys for the most part. Eyesight is remarkably good. He lost his clear barks over the past few years, so now he's just kind of raspy. His appetite is good and I feed him the best food I can and his functions are all normal. Of course he gets plenty of sleep, but I think that's mostly because he's bored with me. I thought I had lost him Last August because of some kind of digestive thing and I let him get too dehydrated. I couldn't get him to drink water but chicken noodle soup he would drink and slowly he got back to his old self.

Anyhow, I will not be able to keep him alive just for me. It'll hurt damned bad when it comes time and his quality of life is gone and he is only
existing for my inability to let him go. I won't do that to him or me. It's a hard thing to think about but the reality is that day will come and I would rather he not wander away from me that way. It would be heartbreaking.

I was hoping it hadn't been a victim of its own dementia, somehow...wandered too far, got too cold, etc...

We had a Dachshund that would rarely get more than a few yards from the house.
When she was very old and dying, the neighbor/farm manager found her about a half mile down the road in the creek bed.
He  brought her home and she received some TLC before she was gone.
 
We humans don't understand this behavior. {#Eh}

 
 
Wow, almost an identical situation (with a creek bed). I think that's what bothered me most...why the creek bed? What a sad way to find one's furbaby.
 
 
Anyway, thanks. I won't dwell on it. I'm sure Kylie (its name) is running free in the meadow over the Rainbow Bridge, unburdened by aging bones/joints/dementia.

A high school friend (and now FB friend) just lost her beautiful dog (it looked a lot like OV's Shiloh). It disappeared for 3 hours and she had every alert out and all kinds of people helping her look through her surrounding neighborhoods. The dog was old and had dementia. She found it that evening, dead in a shallow creek. Do some dogs go away to die? I was afraid to ask details when she posted it on FB. I thought she was going through enough grief already and didn't want to bother her about it. But that's what it sounded like. Poor thing...it made me so sad.

 
Yes. Indoor/outdoor cats do this too.
