Default We had to put down one our pups today

We had to put down Denali, the brother to Sedona. Denali was having problems, even the vet it was time. We adopted him with Sedona in the summer of 2008, brother and sister are now with each other, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

He never had any medical issues, at all except the problem he had. It seems he started to go down hill after Sedona was put to sleep in December 2012. He weighted at one point 110 pounds, today he only weighted 59.1 pounds. His muscle mass was not there, walking for him was torture, you could see it in his face, when he struggled to get up. His bowel movement was one of the final factors to have him put to sleep. He was hearing loss, some tones; but, mostly movements. His eyesight was not good either. He was not eating much at the end; but, when he did eat, he would lick the bowel clean.

He did love the peanut butter and bacon bars.

Give him a hot dog and this boy would go to town.

He loved the snow, when it snowed. He would do this howl that would make you laugh so hard you would pee your pants.

The pack is very quiet, you can hear a pin drop.

Rest in Peace Denali! You will be missed!

sorry to hear that BC. i know it's hard, but you probably did the most humane thing by putting him down. it's never easy losing one of our furry family members.

you have my sympathies brother.

two other members, (PureHavoc and Ellis36) both lost their furry family members recently.

many of us feel and understand what you are going through.

Losing friends and loved one's is always difficult, it's not meant to be easy. You can be proud that you gave Denali, Sedona and your other furred friends a good home for the time they were/are with you.

My condolences and sympathy.

I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you at this time. Losing a beloved pet is never easy.

I feel for you brother , We had to put our big dog down also . It was one of the most heart wrenching times for me . We were just a few months shy of his 13th birthday . Never ever though it would be so hard . I always thought I was stronger than that but when that day comes its a whole different story .
We picked him out at 4 weeks old , the wife and I got married, went on our honey moon and picked him up about 30 days later . Its been the best 12 years I have ever had with a animal . He always showed you lots of love , was the protector of our home and asked little in return .
God speed buddy and our animals will forever rest in our hearts

Very sad to hear. We will say prayers for them both. Gator will say something on his Facebook as well today.

Default Very sorry for your loss

It is heartbreaking when we lose the dearest friends we could ever have...but be proud that you gave them the life they deserved (peanut butter bacon bars, hot dogs, love...you loved them). So they had a good doggie life on this side and now they will romp and play together on the other...

I am so sorry. It's so hard to lose them. People who don't have pets don't really understand how much we love them....they are so much more than pets to us. My heart goes out to you, and the others who recently lost their furry babies.
