    Sorry Matt.
    We put our lab down after 15 years. Deaf and started having seizures. When her back end started giving out we knew it was time. I didnt want her to suffer. I was with her in her last moments, something i will never forget.

      Sorry to hear of your loss. that's the only thing that I don't like about dogs. They never live long enough.

        So sorry to hear this. Problem with dogs is they don’t live long enough. I have lost more 4 legged friends than I care to remember.

          You have our condolences.

          We used to raise minipins many years ago. The matriarch was named Sadie. Of course, since she was "registered" and "all that" she had to have a long name. I named her "Buddy Boy's Sexy Sadie" because her man was Buddy Boy. We got lots of champion puppies from those two.

          I'm very sorry for your loss Matt. :( I truly believe that the reason dogs love their person so much, and so hard is because they somehow know their little lives don't last that long. 18 years seems like a long time...but not nearly enough time with a little thing that loves you unconditionally. R.I.P. Sadie.

            Matt,
            My brother. When you called me today and told me about Sadie, you could tell I was having a hard time with the sad news. We've talked so much about our family and kids-the two-legged and the four legged. As others have said above, they don't live long enough and it hurts like hell when it's their time.
            I'm so sorry, not only for your loss, but that I wasn't able to give 'ya a call back this evening and talk. Remember the special time you had with Sadie and give Patrick an extra hug this evening.
            Peace,
            Dan

              Everybody thank you so much for the sympathies towards myself and my family. Sadie Girl was such a good pup and I do miss her. I feel I am fortunate that God gifted me with her to spend some of my life here on earth with. It just feels strange her not being here in the house this evening.

                    Aw, man.....

                    I call one of our cats "Little Buddy" because he always followed me around and sat on my feet when he was younger.

                    When we got him (and his brother), he was dinky small with very weepy eyes.
                    He's also got a kind of bum hind leg and recently scratched a blood vessel in his ear while we were battling ear mites which caused the cartilage to become detached from the skin and heal in a "cauliflower" way.

                    He's 10 now and it will be particularly unsettling when his time comes.

                    Condolences.

                    I have had quarter horses all my life. They can be friends, companions, tools, any or all. The really good ones tend to never leave for another home or job. When their legs give out and they can not get up or hardly move around we know the time has come. It is never easy. It is hard. I have ageldint that was kicked in the knee s a foal it is big not pretty probably has some arthritis, he is 12 now and many horses live to 20 and beyond. He gives his all, never complains, never tries to say he can't or is too tired. He might outlive me and that is OK.

                        I came home from work today, and she wasnt there coming up to me to greet me like she always did every day. I used to pick her up and love on her a bit, and scratch her ears. It just hurt real deep. I hope that's gonna fade a bit with time.

                        Yep, it sucks. And things come up for a while that hit you like a brick.... Time heals, hopefully. I say that because once you realize how much a 4 legged friend can bring to your life the sooner you will go get a new friend. That's not replacing Sadie in your life, but living your life in a different way.....

                        I hit rock bottom when my last one passed and was lost in space. Then I woke up on a Sunday morning maybe a month later and realized it wasn't fair to me or another dog needing a home to not have that companionship in my life. And that evening I had a new friend in the car. Too soon? Opinions vary but I am glad to have not waited a minute later. Just food for though....

                        Again, sorry for you loss....

                            Again thank you everybody for the kind words. I suspect its gonna take me some time to mentally recuperate from this. I just take it one day at a time. Evenings seem to be the worst.
