Karloutdoors Derwood, my sincere condolences. No doubt in my mind you did the right thing. The right thing a couple years ago. And the right thing just recently. Memories of time shared with your little buddy will forever be a gift.. I'm grateful you gave the pup many years of attention, care, and love. In return he gave you the same.

yoopertrout When treated right, dogs are family members, and their loss is a hard thing to suffer. My condolences. Hang tough, and may time heal the wound.

My 14 mo old Springer found me opening day of fishing last year. I was not going to replace Sadie until the time was right, but heading home I came to an intersection where the house across the street had 9 little puppies in the front yard. It was all over, called my wife and told her I found a new girlfriend, she has brown eyes and a cold nose. Named her Sadie II.

CJR I walked the same walk you did on April 28th with my best buddy Sam. He was 12 and the cancer and arthritis got the best of him.


You made his last moments peaceful and he got to spend them with his best friend...that's all any of us can ask for in the end.


The pain slowly goes away and your left with the happy memories...

AllenW Our Vet gave us the poem "Last Battle" when we went in with our first dog and I've had to read it three more times after that, always gets me crying, but it has helped though those times.

We're on dog number 5 now and I don't look forward to reading this poem again, but know the time will come.

I definitely preferred our dogs over most people.

He said his dog showed him more affection than his wife. Go figure.
No push back here. I cried harder over losing my dig than I did about some people I know.

Will Rogers was right

To paraphrase, If dogs donít go to heaven, when I die I want to go where they went.

Sorry for your loss, Derwood. Cherish the memories, youíll be able to someday look back and smile.
