Default Had to put my old friend to sleep

Well....damn...the time came. I had to put my 14 year old lab down yesterday. One of the hardest moments in my long life so far. That old feller and I went down a lot of roads and trails together.
I guess the bottom line is, even as an old guy, one thing is true....if you can't shed a tear over the loss of your dog....you never deserved to have him in the first place.

Adios' Mozart. You were a damn good friend.

Sorry for your loss Kimber, we recently went through a similar situation. It's not an easy thing to go through.

Default I am so sorry...

I know your pain all too well.... At the end of the day you can take comfort in knowing no one could have loved them more.

Cried like a baby when I had to put my Rhoddy Tut down years back. I had him cremated and put the urn in my office. My wishes are to be cremated myself, mixed with the ashes of my dogs (I got another couple of good ones now...) and then have my family take us out to the mountains of my beloved North Carolina and scatter us together.... Me and my dogs on the trail forever.

All I have left to say is "good dog".

These stories bring a tear to my eye. I have been there and the pain is not forgotten. My 13 year old Gordon Setter is setting beside me today.

Sorry to hear that man, I know it is tough. I put my rottie down after 16 years of loyalty......the shedding a tear part is just understood. Few things in life are as dependable and loyal as a good dog.....................sad for you

Hoefully they're runnin' down birds together in Heaven.

My sympathies and condolences.

This too shall pass.
