I am so sorry for your loss. Animals become part of your family almost like a child that never grows. We have a 5yr old boxer that brings the whole house together. Every one is different with their own personality and one of the truest friends you will ever have. Again I am sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry for your loss. The only thing that really helps is knowing that you have them a great life. I'd like to tell you it gets easier as you get older, but I think it actually gets harder. You'll still have days that are harder than others.

Here is my buddy that we decided to put down in March. 16 years old, blind, deaf, diabetic, insulin-dependent, and a stroke survivor. 4 months later and it's still very hard.

My condolences on your loss.

Maybe you should try cats; they can seem much less lovable sometimes.

How you come to care for and love your dog speaks volumes of you as a person. We just lost out female Rottie last month due to cancer, she was 10 years old, ever vigilant and faithful to us. Prior to her was my OSO, prior to him was precious Sukie . I've raised Rotts for a good part of my life. Each one lived well and long, and when it was time for passing it was in the presence of their family and their head in my lap as the Vet administered the drugs.

Their cremains are buried in our backyard in a place of honor we've set aside for them and our other pets to rest. Feel not embarrassed by your emotions of sorrow and tears, its a visual sign to others just how much your loyal friend meant to you, and a respect to his fealty. The tears are their to help you cope

Sorry for your loss!

We put to sleep our Husky - Sedona in December, she had multiple medical problems. She would not have been alive the next morning if waited.

She was more my baby, than my wife's.

I still feel the pain months later. Her pic is on top of my computer. We have her ashes and final paw print.
