Dang! Sorry to hear that. I think it is one of the most difficult things we have to do in life. They are truly man's best friend. I had to say good by to my best boy in 2002. It took until last year to build the courage to welcome another into my heart. I may not outlive him, but my family is young so he will have proper care after me. Remember him often, he is resting now.
So sorry to hear this. I had to hold my bulldog Perdita as she died from cancer. It's been two years now and I still fill her water bowl. Roscoe had a wonderful life and you certainly had a wonderful partner.
So very sorry for your loss. I’ve lost eight dogs over the last thirty years, and you’d think with each one’s passing it would be easier emotionally, but it never is. From what you have described, Rosco had a full , active life with you as a caring owner. That’s all any dog and their owner could wish for.
Sorry to hear that you have lost your great friend Ridgewalker. Whenever you start caring for something there is always pain at the end. I too have lost several pups over the years and it is a heartbreaking experience. They remain forever in you heart. After we lost our Jack Russell a couple of years back the pain was eased by getting another one. While they never replace the one you have lost, it is wonderful to again be greeted by a tail wagging little friend. My best wishes to you.
So sorry to hear about your loss. I have been there many times, after the last time I said I am done. Then, I just had to get a puppy to train again two years ago. He is curled up at the foot of my desk right at this moment.
i have had to put down several dogs, each one cherished, each one old and each one brings a tear as i recall them and their honest love for me and my family. we now have 2 youngish dogs, 3 and 1 year old. i am just gonna enjoy them both and be sad again if i actually out live them.
i, like so many here understand....and am truly sorry for your loss.
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
