Over the past 18 months I've had my share of challenges. Major brain surgery, prostate cancer and most recently I snapped my right kneecap in half. I would happily go through it all again to avoid today. Today we had to put our Lab/Pointer mix, Tasha to sleep. Tasha bought us over 15 years of joy and will be sorely missed. Saturday night she seemed to have a stroke. We made her comfortable and she seemed her happy self to the end, but couldn't get up and walk anymore. I know now she's in a better place and will be waiting for us when we get there some day.

Condolences, Bob.

You can just never get used to having a four-legged family member put down.  This is an awfully pet-friendly group, so I'm sure you'll find plenty of empathy from the folks here - you've certainly got mine...and good luck with your own medical situation(s) as well!!!!

Never easy to lose a 4-legged companion. My sincere condolences brother.


Cheers,

RR

Tasha owns a piece of your heart...and she will always occupy that place.  You gave her what she needed all those years and she you.  What more could you ask for.... except a few more years.
 
We all grieve with you.

My best to you and your family. It's always rough losing a friend/companion. My bud is 11 and I know his day is coming in the next few/several years.

Nothing really can be said when an old friend dies. My condolences are small in comparison to your loss.

My heart goes out to you Bob. Take what comfort you can in knowing that you provided her with a loving home and a chance to do what dogs do best, love their people.
Be well,
Mike.

Extremely sorry for your loss. It hurts so much to lose a pet, especially one that has been with you for so long.

You have our thoughts and condolences, Bob

Thank you for that Spud.  It made me cry, but I loved it.  Guess I'll never stop being an old softie.  Sad

So sorry to hear this brother! It's never easy to lose one of your furry children. May you find comfort. Best of luck with your medical issues too.

I am so sorry for your loss brother. I also had to say goodbye to my best friend after only a short 11 years with us just a little less than 5 hours ago.  Sad  I am glad he no longer has to suffer the pains of this world, but I would gladly trade anything to have him back.  If we could all have one last wish, it would be for our best friends to live forever...

SPUD, thank you for reminding us that we will all see our beloved friends again.
