I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, geo. It's going on two years since we lost our special German Shepherd and it still hurts sometimes. He was a really special one with a great personality. For a long time after he was gone I'd look at one of his several favorite lounging spots and get a sort of empty feeling. Our other dog, also well-loved BTW, was at a loss too. I didn't want to get a replacement for Kato, since nothing could take his place. However, through a series of quite 'unusual' events we came to have our daughter's dog come to us. He's a little Schnauzer mix and has just taken over. This isn't the time or place to relay how this all came about, but it does seem that there must be a higher Hand guiding these things. When the time is right another friend will come your way to enrich your life again. He/she won't be a replacement but will help fill the gap and bring a different happiness to you. Believe it, it'll happen. Best to you.

So Sorry for your loss.

No matter how many times we go through this path, it never gets easier.

In all the years that I worked at the vet clinic, I always cried, right along with the Doc, anytime we lost someone or had to help a loved pet go in peace. They just wiggle their ways right into our hearts....and I wouldn't have it any otherway.

May God give you peace and happy memories to comfort you.

I lost Murphy that way right in my arms. boy it is hard to see them go that way. Never forgot the moment that I could do noting about it. I had not put him down I just heard a noise out on the porch that did not sound right ran out to see what was going on and Murphy was going into apaleptic shock. I held him for a long time after he went and cried. It is a hard to see them go this way! I could of sworn I seen him several times after that loss saying good by to me in a better way. Mark H.

Sorry to hear about that, it's so hard to lose a beloved dog. It sounds like she went peacefully, though. 13 years is a long time! I am sure you will miss her. You'll probably be looking for her at the top of the stairs for awhile still. Sounds like she was very faithful and loyal to you, as well, and waited to say goodbye.

I really believe in that. I had a coworker who lived way past when everyone though he would, he limped along with his body completely wracked with cancer, for a couple of years - he made it to his retirement and then let go but his family was then fully protected and could receive his retirement benefits.

My condolences to you. Dogs are a wonderful addition to life. I wish they could live longer.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body begins quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...

Another beloved pet gone, the Rainbow Bridge is such a nice piece, makes me cry everytime I read it. Have it up on the Bulletin Board at work, I can begin to tell you home many times it comes down off the board to copy for folks......

Sorry to hear, I dread the day my Buddy goes. Hes 10 this year and hes starting to slow down. My Uncles dog pasted last year, it was his best friend, 14 years old Lab. He said that when he died, it was harder on him than when his own sister died.

Dogs are better than most people!!

Now its time to go pick out another good buddy for you!

Always swore I'd never have no ankle biter runnin around. HUH! Now I gotta get permission to use the house. Sure don't want to think about that day. Sorry for the loss buddy, it's going to be a strange couple of days, due to the silence. Losing a friend is hard, losing a good friend is harder.
Best to ya.

Sorry to hear about your little buddy. They get to be part of the family. We lost Foxie, our Great Dane and also a runt of the litter, about 3 months ago. We had shared life for about 11 1/2 wonderful years. You can take solice knowing that you enjoyed each other's company for that long.

My sympathy to you George on the loss of your pal. Losing a family member is difficult at best.Think about getting another dog very quickly to take your mind off of this loss. Good luck and God bless.

George I sorry to know you lost your pal.

If there's any comfort at all it would be that she enjoyed a good long life for a dog.....gfp
