Very sorry to hear, I just had to put my 14 yr. old Border Collie down back in August. It is so hard to do they are the only truly unconditionally loving beings here on earth. Cherish the moments you had together.

Somehow I have to stop my stupid face from leaking long enough to make it through the work day.
Thank you all for your kind words.
Now... go hug your dog, cat, wife , kids or goat and tell them how much you love them!

Tomorrow will be our last day with Rufas. We're going to have him cremated and will add his ashes to the landscape at his favorite camping spot.

I'm gonna miss you buddy.
I had to put my 12 year old puppy dog down Tuesday/Wednesday in the middle of the night when a brain cancer caused her to have a seizure she was never able to recover from. I feel your pain, Rufus is in my thoughts.

My face is still leaking a week later. I just keep reminding myself that we made the right choices for our pets and did what was best for them. They may "just" be dogs. But they give us every breathe they have (sometimes when we don't want it, like after they eat cat poop or something) and it's our responsibility to know when those breathes are just too painful to give anymore and allow them to rest peacefully.

Been 3 weeks for me. I leaked hard Saturday. A friend had not heard about Murphy. He asked me where my Murpher was. I'm leaking now not just for my loss but all.

I hate threads like this. I usually don't comment. They make me sad and remind me of my lab I lost in 1997. Haven't had a lab since, not sure I ever will.

I support you in this difficult decision and feel horrible for you too. Try not to read this thread during work I guess. I'm sorry Musky girl and Creepy.

We lost our cat in May, while moving this weekend we found his bed that never left my 11yr olds room, lots of face leaking after that find.
Hang in there, sorry to hear this.

Very sorry to hear this!
I really dislike seeing these threads, as I hate seeing anyone loose their buddy.

Sasha is my first dog, she is blind but still active and healthy at 9.5 yrs. I dread the day something happens to her, as she is very special to me. I will be a lump of shit for days I'm sure. I get all drippy just thinking about it. Dogs are my favorite people, breed is of no matter, dogs know how to live and love!

Just a Dog
yes he does have a way with words. Thank you for that video, it helped me think of the good times.

I'm at a complete loss of what to think, do or say. I'm a friggin mess.

That's really crappy to hear! he's still young!

..well not really, but still!


I'm hoping to get a few more years out of my lab...I really at least two. He's 14 now, but according the vet hes in really good health for his age and he's 88 lbs. He was 120 lbs beginning of last year. I finally got my grandpa to stop giving him the giant milk bones 3-4 times a day and stop putting milk on his food lol
