Sorry to hear about your loss. I just began my journey with my first black lab this January.

Pets are definitely family. I'm very sad to hear of your loss. Sending positive energy your way.

Get a puppy and name him Beethoven. Continue on.

I am so sorry to hear of Mozart's passing. Know that you gave him a very good life and you both benefited from the relationship. We all know that's part of owning a dog and humanely euthanizing a dog is the responsible and right thing to do when the time comes. But the good times almost always outweigh the side times for most of us and we eventually get another dog and walk down that lovely path again.

My 16 year old mix is beside me now and she is still fairly active. She is arthritic and has coughing spells from a collapsed trachea.

I have shed some tears over this thread and understand the grieving.

My sympathies Kimberfan. I have been there, and will again. It is the only really bad part about being owned by a dog. the other parts of being owned by a dog are vastly better! After an appropriate time you need to find Mozart's successor. They cannot be replaced, only succeeded.

My sympathies, friend.

I put down my 15 year old Golden Retriever, "Dugan," more than 10 years ago, and I think of him every single day. At least I have 15 years worth of memories.

Think about Mozart every day. It will help. After a while, the memories will stop being painful and become golden.

When you reach the promise land the first thing you will see? The bright morning sun rising above the hills and every dog you ever owned running to greet you.
If it were not for whisky we Scotch-Irish would rule the world. And that is a fact.
