Today I mourn the passing of a beloved friend
Yesterday, my dog Squeeter had to be put down. At age 16, his mind was still sharp and his eye sight good, but his poor old skeleton just wasn't doing a very good job anymore. He was having a hard time getting up and laying down. Occasionally, he'd fall when he went from the carpet to the hardwood floor.

2 days ago, he became sick. He wasn't able to hold food down anymore.

Telling my wife to have him put to sleep was the hardest thing that I've ever done in my life. I fully understand that he is now in a better place. A place where there is no pain and there is no suffering. A place where sticks throw themselves and the water is always cool. It just doesn't make the heartache go away though.

Squeeter, 1993-2009:

Rest in peace my brother. I'm sorry that I couldn't have done more for you.

That truly sucks Matt. I am sorry for you and your family - good thoughts and prayers coming your way brother. :(

Rest in Peace Squeeter

I'm so sorry for your loss Matt.

There is no fairness in the fact that man's best freind can't live as long as we do.

Sorry for your loss. 16 good years though!

I've literally had him for half of my life. I picked him up from some kids in front of a grocery store when I was 17, I'm 33 now. I've lost family members, but I've never felt this bad before.

To make matters worse, I was on the road when he got sick. I'll regret not being able to spend some time with him, in the days before his passing, for a long time to come.

DAMMIT! It just kills me to see anyone's pup die! I'm sure he had a good loving life and he'll be deeply missed. I'm so sorry,for you man.

I have 2 pups that are approaching that age...

When I had to put my beloved Rotty down a few years ago, I cried like a little girl. I am getting glassy eyed thinking about it. I feel you man. That sucks.

We had to put the Bud Dog down four years ago and I still haven't been able to replace him. Unconditional love and he was always happy to see me. I've never met a dog I didn't like and I wish I could say the same for most of the people I have met in my life-time. The picture of your dog and the memory of Bud brings tears to my eyes. Sorry Bro.
