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.

Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know thisthey will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave. Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly
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.
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
