Is there a Humane Society that you can take him to or perhaps they can pick him up. I am so sorry that you have to face this alone. Perhaps somebody near you can help. If Roc is dying it is best that you have him put to sleep rather than have him suffer.

The Humane Society will put him to sleep without charging you.

Thank you. He is such a sweet dog. I want to treat him with dignity. I will call them as soon as they open.

Good luck to you. You have my sympathy.
