Anyone who loves dogs, or animals in general, can't even imagine giving up a dog at any point in their life, much less after they've had their furbaby for 17 years. It makes us cry just thinking about having to do that!
Unfortunately, not all humans are fit to be dog parents, despite actually owning them. Those include people who give up on their furbabies the second they show signs of age or health problems. When you get a dog, you make a promise to take care of them and love them for the rest of their lives. After all, their life is not less important than any other! They don't deserve to be left in the dust!
