Platypus thread

I'm going to post a platypus in this thread every day until all of /an/ wants to snuggle a puggle.

This is like the third time that I know I posted but it didn't go through or something and the thread got archived. >>>3458488 previous.

What are your views on him?

> Reckless asshole who overstepped a boundary with one of the top predators on earth. What happened was inevitable.

> A dreamer who saw nature as beautiful and worth getting closer to and who was more experienced than he’s usually given credit for. What happened was a fluke.

Thoughts?

Renamed and/or Reclassified Pitbulls

If a pitbull up for adoption at a "rescue shelter" were named "Gilbert" was its name originally "Killer"?

They sound very similar and it's a weird name for a dog.

How do you know when it's time to put a pet down? I don't even know if this is allowed here, and I know ultimately this is my call. But if you have had to decide whether or not to put an animal down I would love to hear how you came about that decision. I'm absolutely torn right now and I'm not sure if I'm approaching this rationally.

A year ago, my 10-year-old miniature schnauzer suffered a neurological event. This has caused him to suffer from significant anxiety since. Our vet has put him on daily valium, and while it reduces the symptoms he's definitely not the same as before the event.

A fortnight ago he started vomiting, and hasn't been able to keep all of his meals down. He'll vomit once a day. Our vet has put him on an anti-nausea medication but it has little effect. He's lost a lot of weight and my wife firmly believes now is the time to put him down.

The problem is he's still himself 80% of the time. It's so difficult to gauge because the main problem is neurological, and while the nausea and vomitting is impacting him neither our vet or we know if it is temporary, or a by-product of his neurological event.

Our vet has told us it'll be time when we realise he is no longer himself. When the good in his life no longer outweighs the bad. My wife is adamant now is the time, but I feel her justification is driven by the potential of a future event that would absolutely cripple him. I don't want this to happen either, but I just feel like we're saying goodbye at the first road bump since his event. I don't want him gone. I feel there's time left in him.
