I dont know if any of you remember a few weeks back right before Thanksgiving I was telling everyone about the thought of putting our old man down. He was a 14 year old collie, we just could not come to grips with the decision and said he would tell us when he needed to be set free... He was a pound dog who had a wonderful life for the 14 years we owned him....

I'm very sorry about your loss. I'm sure you've heard it before, but about all i can say is it will be better with time. Again, Juanita and I are very sorry for your loss--

I'm so sorry. I know how you are feeling. I had to put down my 10 year old chinese shar-pei a little while back. It is such a hard thing to do. He lived a great, long life. I am sure he knew he did nothing wrong. They have a way of knowing whats going on. At least now he is at rest and is at peace.
My thoughts are with you.

thank you all for your support. It just seems that no words can make any of us feel better.... apparently my 2 cats went over and laid with him last night on his bed and would not leave his side...

Oh man I miss him!  :cry:

I am sooooo sorry! The pain is unbareable I'm sure. Everyone is different so I cannot say... I know exactly how you feel... that would be just wrong. I can say, I am here for you as I am sure others are to if you need SOMEONE to talk to. The wonderful thing is that he is better now. He wouldn't want you to be crushed by this, but be happy because now he is better! It's so hard to let go, I'm SO SOO SORRY. If you need anything at all I'm here!

Oh honey, I'm so sorry.  It's never easy.  It took me almost a year to get over losing Rocky even with Henry here.
We'll be praying for you.

I've been away from the site for the last couple of days and am so sorry to hear about your loss.  I know there is nothing that I can say that will ease the pain right now - it's a process that we just have to go through in our own time - but I do know that one day the happy memories you two have shared will replace the sorry and pain you feel now.  My heart goes out to you.
