Matt, I had a cattle dog that had a stroke. She could not get up, just sat and kept moving in circles, always to the right I think it was. She slept well but in the morning, though she couldn't get up, indicated she needed to go out to toilet, so we carried her out in a blanket and held her while she relieved herself. By that stage she was like yours though, unable to stand and quite out of it, so I lay her down in the sunshine on the grass and rang the vet to come out and put her down. He did say that she was nearly gone, so I have no doubt at all that you did the right thing for your beautiful dog. My girl was 15 and 4 months btw. You have our deepest sympathy.
