    Our mutts are 6 and 8. I can't imagine how I will keep it together when one of them passes. I try to just remind myself each day to try and give them a really fun dog life while they are around and hope they enjoy it.

    So sorry for your loss. It's always hard when our four legged furry children pass on. Makes me want to go home and spend some quality time with my boys.

    Gah, what a kick in the nuts. Putting my golden down was the hardest thing I have ever done. They are the best dogs ever! I'm sorry for your loss. He's hanging out with my Cooper now, chasing that constantly thrown tennis ball into the pool.
  • The photo you see is of my greyhound that was diagnosed with cancer.  He was given two months to live about a month ago.  The crying continues.  My heart goes out to you and your family. God bless.

    So sorry for your loss, Charles.  I think most of us have been there, and there's very little in life that hurts like this.  Remember and honor your friend, and when you're ready, make room for another who will also change your life.

    Very sorry for your loss!  The picture you posted shows me a very sweet, happy and well loved puppy!  A good friend put this on my wife's facebook page and it seems appropriate here.  My wife and I are both animal lovers but especially so with dogs.  We have three indoor dogs if that tells you anything.

    Charles-So sorry for your loss! Our nine year old Doberman had to be put down in March!! It hurts like Hell but it will pass! After months of saying we were going to go it with just our 4 yr old lab two days after Reagan was laid to rest my wife found an 8 week old Dobie and that helped a lot! Now seven months later...not so she destroyed a $1400 leather sofa! Sorry again for your loss!
