My little barred rock Patty needed to be put down. My husband put hay in a small dog crate and set her carefully inside. He put the crate in a large plastic bag and taped the bag to the end of his trucks exhaust. Less than 10 minutes she was gone, I pray peacefully. I just want to know if anyone else has ever done it this way. I don't think she suffered, I just didn't want her scared and certainly wanted her to go painlessly.
