I can't even pretend to know what that is like, I am very sorry to hear. *3 years is so so short, too short..... but at least you can take solace in the fact that is 3 more wonderful years of being loved and cared for that so many dogs locked in cages, rescues, pet stores, or even chained to trees never get to see. *She will never forget the love you had and the good times you gave her. *I am sure those were the thoughts she held on to during her last moments here, and she will carry those with her forever.

RIP Holly

I'm so sorry you lost Holly. *I always thought I would get another immediately once Tyson was gone to ease tha pain. *But now that he is, I don't want another...but I was blessed to have Tyson for 12 years. *You lost Holly so soon. * *I understand how you feel about not finding another one as pretty. *I feel that way about Tyson, he's the most beautiful boxer I've ever seen (in person anyway). *I'm sure we all feel that way about our dogs. *

From what I've read on here, Holly is in good company...

Sorry for your loss. *RIP Holly. *I do want to suggest trying to find a boxer that has been health tested. *I bought Charlie from a backyard breeder. *Sadie came from a better home, but thorough tests weren't done. *Testing doesn't give a guarantee, but buying a pup that's parents have been screened could lead you to a longer timeframe with your new pup.

I am so sorry for your loss...your story has brought me to tears! *She was a beautiful girl who is now running pain free. *I too recently lost my beautiful boxer named Blu. *She was only 18 months and full of cancer in the stomach. *However in the short time here on earth she touched many lives and will never be forgotten. *Because of Blu a few of my friends have even gone and adopted boxers! *After Blu I ended up finding Templeton from a different breeder and as hard as it was he did help ease the pain of losing Blu and in many ways Templeton is very much like Blu!!! *Keep your chin up...I know how hard it is.

I am so sorry for your pain. *Everyone is different in their grieving. *When you're ready you'll know. *There are also contacts at some of the major veterinary hospitals for grieving pet owners. *When we knew there were no more options for our boy I called Cornell and left a message. *A veterinary student returned my call to talk me through the painful choice I had to make. *I'm a private person, but felt I could be candid with her. *She was wonderful and supportive. *They are trained to do this, and will become better veterinarians through this training. *I have a good friend who's specialists took five years to finally diagnose a rare, genetic kidney problem with their young daughter. *Please accept my sympathy.

I love her pouty lip. I am sorry for the heartbreak you are going through my prayers are with your family. I can't imagine losing mine at such a young age.

So Sorry
i Had a friend how lost his first boxer to *kidney failure *at 3 years *old same story within a week it was heartbreaking ,
he actually took him home from the vet *for the last couple days ( to say good by ) , in a few days he had a seziure and multipal strokes , this was even more sad to watch
my friend *actually regreted taking him home , he told me seeing him like that was harder than taking the final ride ,,,
but that boxer was the reason i got mine , once a boxer owner always a boxer owner *(sucky short life span and multipal illness)


its never a good time to say goodbye *
i am going to have to make the same decision in a few weeks * *
my 6.5 year old baby girl kiara has lymphoma its been 3 weeks since the diognosis *, she is rapidily deteroating 80 lbs to 60 lbs i think in a few weeks i will be in the same suituation.
few weeks before that she was diognosed with kidiney falure , i think 6.5 years with her just wasent enough never mind 3 * *
but i promissed her i will not let her suffer ,
the hardest thing is when she has a accident or needs to out more often she is almost imbarrased( just the look in her eye ).
i will make the decision when she lets me know *,,, *till then lots of hugs and kisses

Well it's nice to know it happened to someone else aswell (not to be meant in a bad way) and it wasn't just mine. We weren't going to let her stay there that Tuesday, the vet said see how she is in a few days and then come back again, I'm so glad we did let her stay now though, I'd of absolutely hated it if she just suddenly had seizures and strokes when I wasn't expecting it, that would've made me feel even worse and it'd be another thing stuck on my mind, that phone call was bad enough, and I bet it'll all stay on my mind for many years to come. That's the only thing, I'd never be happy with any other kind of dog other than a Boxer, even if there's other dogs which live longer and suffer less illnesses, I've heard most live until they're 13 (mine should've lived another 10 years ;___ which isn't so bad.

Aww, that's very sad to hear and I know exactly how the must be feeling, and even 6 isn't old. =( At least the illness didn't come so suddenly and unexpected like ours did, it's sad to hear she has kidney failure though, although apparently mine had it very bad. I wish you good luck, and I really hope she survives, but then if not then you can think I'm in exactly the same position as you, and it wasn't just her it happened to. ^^ BTW I love her name, I've liked the name Kiara ever since I first heard it, I might mention that name to my parents when I get a new Boxer puppy. =)

*looks at link* Aww, she's such a nice looking girl!

Thanks. Trying to compare a Boxer with mine would be the wrong thing to do, really, it'd be like pretending it's still her when it isn't. My mum suggested we should get a brindle, or a red with white feet, because I still think it would kind of hurt my feelings if I got another dog which looked almost the same as her (I've seen quite a few). It'll be nice to see the new Boxer I'll eventually be getting do all new things, like you said no Boxer is the same and they're all unique, but hopefully she would do some of the same things Holly did, and almost all of them have the same kind of personality and are very friendly, plus they're all very pretty so I'm sure I could grow to love another.

Thanks, yeah she always used to make that pretty face often (the one with her on the grass), I'm hoping when I get a new Boxer that it'll make that same kind of face even though I've never seen one as pretty as her, I've had people tell me their Boxer makes that same face aswell, which is good to know.

Even though it's much worse for me, I must admit it must be kind of sad to other people aswell with Boxers, I used to read storys like this and found it awful, and now it has happened to me. ;___; It was only last week I was searching Boxer dog pics on DeviantART and found it sad when I saw the ones who died, and I thought how lucky I was to have a young healthy dog, but I was very wrong there... Thank you.

Thanks for caring, and sorry about that, I've read stories like this before about other people's animals and I also found it sad. Yeah she was very pretty with a very lovely face. I could never forget her, these past few years she's almost always been with me, and everywhere I go there's memories of her, I haven't been downstairs since it happened as I can't bare not seeing her around. ;__;

I agree, 3 years is an EXTREMELY short life for such a lovely dog like her, the same life span as a small caged animal. That's true, at least she was very well looked after, she slept on my parents bed at night, had her own chair really, which costed over
