Losing one helps you to realize that you need to spend more time with the ones you still have and love also. The wife and daughter getting some old fashion seat time and enjoying being outside to think.

Sorry to hear of the loss, like many said it is very hard to see them put down. Deep down they know it is the best thing for them and so do you.

They become part of your family and they will always have a part in your heart.

RIP doggie

LOL - the vet commented about Greta's teeth - she had a lot of worn teeth from dragging logs (and rocks and ice chunks) all over the yard, too! Must be a shepherd thing . . .

Losing a pet is way harder than one ever imagines. Years ago, I lost both of my labs, one 13, the other 11 in the same night. It's a sad story that I won't go into but it was one of the worst nights of my life.

I feel for you. You'll never get over your pet. RIP

We had to put my wife's chocolate lab Scooby down several years ago, he had liver cancer happened real suddenly. Our vet did everything he could, but because the cancer was so aggressive there was nothing to be done. Would have just extended his pain. He was just like our first kid, he was only 7 years old. Our vet was even crying when he put him down. He said he always looked forward to when we brought Scooby in because he was such a friendly goof, we ended getting another chocolate lab puppy less than a week later. It was hard on my wife, and it happened the day before her birthday. We have two labs, now hate the thought of having to go through it again, hopefully not for awhile. Of course our chocolate Lab Ozzie has a death wish I think. He does some really dumb things, he burned all his whiskers off two winters ago, by sticking his nose into the front of my salamander while it was on. Surprisingly it didn't burn his nose just singed all the whiskers off and a little bit pf hair.

I am sorry to hear of Scooby. It is amazing that a dog can tell when trouble is around but are dumb enough to put their nose in front of a running heater. I always am amazed at what dogs will do, but that is what we love about them.
