I lost Zoe this morning. She was almost 14.

  • Sorry for the loss of your beloved dog. I have two fuzzy friends myself and don't want to think of when their time will come. Fourteen years is a long time to share and I wish you nothing but the best during this difficult time.
  • Sorry to hear that Mickey - its always difficult
    Sure sorry to hear that Mickey, that sure is heart breaking.

    A while back we had to put down our dog who was with us for about the same amount of time. That was a tough time for me and I never expected I how it would make me feel.

    Be well, Kent

    I'm sorry for your loss and understand completely. Our oldest Golden, Sadie, is 14 and declining rapidly. They are always cherished and always missed.

    I'm sure Zoe had a great life.
  • My Girlfriend and I compromised on a breed about two years ago. It was a puggle that we named Molly. That dog (regardless of the pain of puppy training) is the princess of the house and both me and my GF would not know what to do without having her their to greet us when we came home from work everyday. In exchange for some dried up kibble and some table scraps we get priceless entertainment and immeasurable love in return. I send my deepest condolences on your loss today of your friend that was part of the family (family pet doesn't do yur relationship with your dog any justice).

    We're sorry, Mickey. She was a very lucky girl to have shared her life with you.
  • Mickey,

    You have my sympathy. Losing a pet is tough. Three years ago, we had to put down one of our cats due to cancer. While you can never replace a pet, we welcomed a new fury friend 6 months later. We are now blessed with both the memories of our lost friend and the affection of the new member of our family.

  • I'm real sorry to hear this, Mickey. She looks like a great dog. After a while, the hurt will fade but the good memories will remain.

    We are a family (somewhat dysfunctional at times) and I so appreciate it now. I thought about the posting of this and you are the only people I wanted to talk with about it.
    I thank each of you. Your words and a real long walk has helped.

    even after a couple months, i still hear my girl in the house and i still tell her good night when i go to bed... it does get easier, but there are always moments.
  • Mickey, such heart-breaking news. Our dogs are our children.

    We are a big-dog family and have lost two of them this year, a St. Bernard and a Great Pyrenees. And our 13-1/2 years Landseer Newfoundland is very, very slow these days (usual life 9-10 years). And so it goes...with two Newfy pups to start the cycle again.

  • I am so sorry to hear that you lost your friend. :(

    We lost our beagle Bailey 3+ years ago and I still miss her. You can take comfort in knowing that you were the light of her life and the love she gave you was unconditional. The photo you posted showed the joy in her face and eyes.

    Take care of yourself and your family during this time.
  • damn man, sorry to hear that.

    Yes, Mickey, we are family and I am hurting for you. Wish I could make the pain go away but all you can do is think of the good times. Even though my Punkin is gone I still talk to her and it makes me feel better. Just know you and Linda are loved.....
