Default A Rough Day Today

I had to give my pup Buenchkin over to our maker, hardest thing to do after 20 years. Her quality of life was diminished, tough to watch her struggle to get up. I am taking this as hard as I expected to.

I never know what to say. I feel for you and family. It is very hard. The picture you have with the green eyes is memorable!

( I just finished the tombstone for ours yesterday. When I came in my wife wondered if my allergies were acting up)

Sorry Jack...this is bringing back all those horrible feelings we had two months ago when I had to put our big girl down....she was only 9 1/2....waay too short of a time for a dog as good and sweet as her.

God bless you and with some time it will get better.

Sorry for you loss Schmaltz. So hard to say goodbye to our dogs.

20 years is one of the longest runs I have had heard. We just lost our 18 year old Miniature Pincer in June.

Wow, 20 years. We have lost so many at half that or less, would do anything to have a dog for that long, you obviously did something right. Hopefully you get some peace from knowing you did the right thing all along, including that last decision.

Default Best Friend

There is Nothing harder than losing the most devoted friend that you will ever have. Nothing as loyal as a dog. The good memmories will always be with you.
Dog is God spelled backward. Dog lovers know why. They teach us the important things about life. Their life is short, but their memories will live until the day you cross over that bridge to be united once again. Tail will be a waggin !

From the two pictures, one thing is pretty clear, you provided that dog an amazing life. Hope that provides you some comfort in this difficult time for your family.

Lost Ours At 14 years, I know it’s sucks but she’s not hurting anymore.

Was worst day of my life, but somebody upstairs dropped another 1 in our laps and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Time will heal the pain and maybe you’ll find 1 to help the healing.

Very sorry. Lost our female German shepherd in 2016 after 12 years and it was super painful. We recovered faster than I expected with a new puppy we got a few months earlier. You can’t replace but it sure helps to always have a great companion.

Hugging mine as we speak. Had to put my lab down last October. No words to describe the pain... We’re here for you man. Prayers.
