This is a question Devastating Put-Downs

Amorous Badger says: I once saw a former manager of mine being asked to 'sit down and let your mouth have a chance to speak' by his senior. What's the best heckle/putdown/riposte you've ever seen? (Hint: Recycled 'Your mum' jokes does not make an answer)

Devastating put-down?
Has to be the lady who "howled" after I euthanased her elderly Gordon Setter. That seemed pretty devastating for her in my opinion.
Number two would be the horse I had to put to sleep after the previous vet had ripped the colon during rectal palpation releasing faeces into the abdominal cavity - not pretty. The sight of that Mare's foal pawing at its mothers body seemed quite devastating for the foal.

That was all years ago... but the lady who sang to her dog as I put it to sleep this week comes in the top ten somewhere.
Hey ho.

Edits... Saturday morning wasn't much better - had a bloke in floods of tears this morning. He had no real other option so it was very sad. Lost his pal of 15 yrs.

How do I do it? Its quite simple really - I just console myself with the fact that I know I'm doing the right thing at the right time. Ask me to do it at the "wrong" time and then I dont cope too well. Never too happy with my own pets - lost two this year. You just think they are invincible...

That's me reaching for a hankie and a glass of wine there.

You're much stronger than I am to deal with that job, and I know that having a good vet around really makes such a terrible thing a little more bearable.

You seem to be some sort of Vet
yet claim that foals have paws.

I would say
that you were groped, not 'pawed at'.

You use "paw" the verb...
... even if the animal in question has hooves, not "paws" the noun.

I seem to have something in my eye :(

This is the only reply this week that has used "Put down" in this sense
that hasn't made me think 'of for fucks sake'.

I have Saturday morning sads now though, so I'm still not sure I like you...

What did she sing?

the pearl fishers duet
on her own..
It was obviously comforting for her.

That's no good I was hoping for Yellow Submarine or Shudupayerface or something.

Well, that's another keyboard fucked.

They're never the same after they get salt water in...
