    The only bad thing about dogs is they just don't live long enough. I too am sorry for your loss.

    Mike, so sorry to hear. I know it's been a hard road the last year or so for ya'll to watch her deal with her health. Best thing I can suggest is tonight a nice tall one on the back patio while remembering the good times. tom ACGP, Inc.

    Many Thanks to all. Over the past nine years, I've consistently seen an outpouring of support whenever an Egger loses a pet. Says volumes to me about the character of those Eggers.

    It's getting better thanks to you folks.

    Dang Mike,

    Sorry to hear of this. It's true that a dog is Man's best friend... and vice versa. There is no good time to lose a friend, especially one that lives to make you happy. Hope she's eating all the good table scraps she can hold in the Dog heavens.

    Great pic!

    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.

    I am so sorry to hear that. I am sure you gave her a great life... and she returned the favor! Dogs are such wonderful animals. I am going to hug my Retriever right now.
