so long,little friend

not a good day today,had to take our little dog to the vet and have her put to sleep.she was 14 years old,and been blind for the last month or so.kinda sad to see her running into things in the house.not eating or drinking her water,so we knew what we had to do.really leaves an empty place in your heart and in your house.sure gonna seem quiet around here for a while.

Sorry to hear about your loss Tom. It is hard, but sometimes it has to be done, just to ease their suffering. Have had to have one of my dogs putdown and it is a heartwrenching experience. I understand your pain.

Just try and remember the good times.

Tom: Having traveled the same road several times my heart goes out to you and your family. I lost three horses that were precious to me for 18 years and A Red Heeler that was my buddy for 12 years. I know you will NEVER forget, but try to remember all the GOOD times and for me after waiting two years after "Duster" left us, we got "Molly". She's four now and it really filled a void...but we'll never forget "Duster"

I am one of those guys who think dogs are much better than lot?s of people around, so I do get sensitive when a family looses it?s dog. Get a puppy.. the kids will love it and it will fill the space. It will give you more trouble than your old dog used to, but ...

Very sorry to hear this -- we had to put one of our dogs down just this Monday.

It was very hard, especially trying to explain it to our three year old daughter.

Our dog had a terminal disease even though she was less than a year old, but we didn't know when the end would come. Luckily we had just adopted a puppy from a shelter a couple weeks ago and that helped a lot.

It always hurts. I don't know what to say. Trying to remember the good times is a good idea. All you dog owners out there, give yours a hug today.

I feel for you Tom.

There is one best place to bury a dog.
If you bury him in this spot, he will
come to you when you call - come to you
over the grim, dim frontier of death,
and down the well-remembered path,
and to your side again.

And though you call a dozen living
dogs to heel, they shall not growl at
him, nor resent his coming,
for he belongs there.

People may scoff at you, who see
no lightest blade of grass bent by his
footfall, who hear no whimper, people
who may never really have had a dog.
Smile at them, for you shall know
something that is hidden from them,
and which is well worth the knowing.

The one best place to bury a good
dog is in the heart of his master."

Some of the saltiest tears I ever shed were for a black Lab named Katy. She was a true member of the family. ---Sandy---

I am truley sorry for your loss!! I know how hard it is to loose a good friend/ family member. My animals are my children.

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 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....
