    Tough loss. My 11 year old Griffon last year just up and quit eating. Same prognosis. Eat up with cancer. Had to put Max down. Family’s first dog given to my son for his birthday. Certainly takes time to move past the loss of a best pet friend. Thoughts with ya both of you brother.

    I know how you feel. A while ago, the family cat had to be put down because she just kept walking in circles, suffering from incontinence, and eventually stopped eating.

    Thanks Phil, yes your right. This has been devastating to us. Never saw it coming. With us being here and not home we’re feeling so guilty we were not by his side. Ro is deeply saddened this was her boy. My heart breaks for her too. She didn’t need this.

    If the kindest souls, lived the longest lives, dogs would outlive us all.

    All good dogs go to Heaven. We will see them again!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. We lost our dog 3 months ago. It's amazing how attached I was to her.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. We had to have our 11 year old bulldog put to sleep last November and the wife and I still fill her water bowl. I am sure he was much more than a pet, more like a child. Prayers to you and your family.

    The loss of family whether they be two legged or four is always a very difficult time especially when it is way too early for old age to take its natural course. Our four footed friends take a big piece of our heart with them when they go. We lost Bruno (Grauvolk Bruno von Gruff) 2 years back now.

    I’m also sorry to everyone here that lost a furry friend. It’s very difficult.
