she was a great beast, 140 pounds of slobbering lab/mastiff, but she thought she was just the worlds biggest chihuahua. . .climbed into my lap every evening when i got home from work. .. unfortunately she came down with bone cancer 4 months ago and it was just a matter of time before it got the best of her. ..after the last two nights of me sitting on the rug with her while she cried in pain, i took her in so the vet could help her with the last stage of her life's journey this afternoon. ...

she was my friend. ... i'll miss her. . .

    Sorry Max,

    Getting close myself with Bear. Big dogs as they say :(

  • Real sorry about that, but you did the right thing, and probably gave him an awesome life.

    We have medium dogs now, but my favorite was the 180# English Mastiff that decorated our walls until 2001.

    So tough to lose a companion of so long, sorry for your loss.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season. 
  • goodnight, Duffy
    sweet dreams
    hope you meet a lot of our friends in that Big Backyard

    There is nothing more heart wrenching than a loss of one of our four pawed friends...what a handsome girl and how happy she looks and how fortunate you both were to have had each other.....we said good by last November after 11 years with our dear friend Rufus, an English Bull Terrier filled with love and devotion...he now has a new friend to play with and he loves the ladies!
  • doggy heaven must be a great place!!!...i'm sure its preferable to the people one!!!! i think i'd rather go there thats for sure!!
  • thanks tim ... all the friends here make it a lot easier though :)

  • thanks elizabeth. .. i appreciate it!
  • thanks leroy. .. yep, it does hurt even though it was the right thing to do. .with a dog, you have to help them along sometimes. way i could let her suffer any more.. .it wouldn't have been fair to her. ..
  • thanks john!! . . .i miss seeing you and joan!! been too long. ..i still have a 12 pack of grape soda with your name on it in my basement! :)

  • thanks scott!

    Oh Max, I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is. They give so much and ask so little. Except for the dachshunds, of course, who are extremely needy. And the basset hounds who require continual tummy rubs. Or possibly the...wait a minute..I think maybe we've been sold a bill of goods here. Either way, to me life wouldn't be worth it without dogs. Duffy was loved.

    So sorry for your loss. Been there way too often, but we keep going back for more. The unconditional love from a good dog supplies the memories to make it wrth the pain we go through when we lose them.

  • i'm sure there are lots of good egghead dogs just waiting for her up there. ..not to mention some of her friends from right here in the neighborhood! . ..she was sleeping good for the first time in weeks when i left her this afternoon!
  • thanks buba. ..and i'm sorry for your loss too ...
