These threads always make me sad too! My girl is 11 years old and slowing down some. I always tear up when I read these threads knowing that my time with her is getting short.
There are some beautiful girls and boys in this thread and I can tell that they are all loved and missed.

It's like life, a lot of sadness and heartbreak over the loss, but then the joy and happiness when some one post's, "Look at the new addition to my family". Absolutely everything in life is temporary.

Glad You had Baxter and he had You! You both brought love and joy to each other in a tough world. Missing him hurts BUT nothing in this world lasts forever. Your life was better because of him. His life was better because of You. Sorry for your loss.
This one is for Yoi both!

I'm afraid he's going to wear out before he's ready to go, or I'm ready to let him go.
Why's my screen all blurry?[/QUOTE


I think this helped our Lab gain a couple of years. He was 15 and sent him up in April..
Thanks for that. I'll check them out.
We've had him on something similar from the vet, but I'm not convinced they're doing anything.

love them Velcro dogs! We lost Buddy our big male 3 months ago but quickly filled his bowl with Cooper a terribly abused 2.5 year old. Our 12 y/o Maya would prefer to not to be bothered but it has made her more active lately. #VizslaPower!

Well it has been ~12 days since I first posted about my buddy Rocky I knew he had only days left and made sure to make every one count.......well yesterday he died. He went quietly in his bed with my wife beside him at around 12:45 PM. I rushed home built him a proper coffin....put his favorite blanket and softball in with him and put him in his final resting place in my chicken yard. It was a tough day yesterday and today won't be much better. I am just glad he didn't suffer and went quickly. My daughters dog Ellie has been looking for him. We removed all his bedding and thing with his scent but Ellie is still trying to find him. He was truly part of our family and will be greatly missed.

RIP Rocky!

It's tough I just had to put my boxer down he was my rottie's best friend he grew up with him since the day I got him when he was 10 weeks old. It has been about two months and he is still depressed. Make sure to keep the pup active and try to socialize him it has helped with Cody.

I feel your pain, brother, and please accept my condolences. Just seven days ago I said goodbye my own man's-best-friend.

The vet called it “hemangiasarcoma” and the signs started just a few weeks ago. A few skipped meals, a little more panting, started having trouble climbing the stairs, etc. He was a rescue and when I adopted him over 8 years ago and he was between 2 and 4 years old at the time. So, initially, I just thought he was getting old. Then a few skipped meals became a loss of appetite, he was panting while at rest, and I started carrying him up the stairs.

The x-ray showed a large mass the vet called an enlarged spleen and recommended blood work, urine analysis and a specialist to review the x-ray. The next day, he called with the results and recommended I take the dog to a surgical hospital emergency room for an ultrasound and a biopsy. The ultrasound revealed that the cancer was more widespread and that he was already bleeding internally. That, coupled with already being anemic, low blood counts, etc., left only one option.

The quote in a previous post about having a dog will bless us with the happiest days of our lives, as well as one of the worst days is all too true.

My dog's name was Jaguar and I can't begin to describe how much I miss him.
