Hi Hopperleslie

Such sad news. We know how you feel having had to do the same some years back.
Never sobbed so much in our lives, it's like losing one of the family. Time is a great healer though.

Our thoughts are with you on this sad day.

Hi, I know just how you feel. It breaks my heart every time one of our pets leaves us. Just keep reminding yourself that you did it so he wouldn't suffer.

Thinking of you.

You have my sympathy. My dog Max a scruffy mongrel Jack Russell spent most of his 16 yrs with me when I was in the Army and we were allowed dogs in camp (officers only tho) He spent 2 yrs with me training army recruits and was known and loved by all. He loved travelling and went to Spain with us on 3 trips but unfortunately due to ill healh I had to have him put to sleep last May. Broke our hearts and I shed buckets. They do leave a big hole in one life but always remember the fun YOU had together and the good life HE had with you!!

our thoughts are with you at this sad time, when we lost ours it took months before I could move their bed out kept waiting for her to come back, but now we have another four legged friend to have new adventures with, but it took three years before we took that step, it does get easier, just keep remembering the good times.

I also feel your pain.

I have lost a number of dogs over the years and have vowed never to have another.

The last one died about a year December or so, cancer of the liver and spleen, we hoped that she would get better, we even slept with the French window open(freezing cold) so that she could get in and out. We took turns sleeping on the suttee in a sleeping bag, the dog would sleep when she could on the floor next to you and lick your hand as if to say thanks.:Sad:

Sadly missed.

Love them to bits and the pain of the loss still hurts.

Really sympathise with you, its one of the worst things to go through when you loose your best four legged friend. Lost one of mine 15 years ago and still wouldn't part with her collar and lead to this day.
At least you obviously gave her lots of love and a wonderful life, there are so many others who need a good home like you gave.

Hi Hopperleslie
They give unconditional love and there are very few humans that do that but a dog aways gives unconditional love.
I'm sure he had 14 great years and love every moment.

Life goes on.

get yourself down to the nearest rescue kennels and give another needy dog a good home !...owners like yourself are hard to come by ! life goes on for owners and animals !

Hi All, my wife and i wish to thank all who have given kind words and thoughts following the death of our beloved pet, yes he is most certainly loved and i cant express in words how we feel at this moment , i just wish today was over and maybe we can accept what has happened with a little less pain.

Thanks to all.

So sorry for you, most of us have been there and by heck it hurts, even reading about someone else losing their beloved pet hurts and brings it all back.
We can just about talk about our cat which we had to have put down a year ago without getting upset. We now remember the good times. Time does heal to some degree.
My thoughts are with you both.

:Sad:Hi so sorry that you have lost your best friend, they never let you down only want you to love them, play and walk, and never argue with you, i too lost my best friend after 17 years, so i know the pain you are feeling, but can only say that at least now there is no more suffering, i still miss ours and he has been gone now for five years, and I cannot have another one because I couldn't go through the pain again, so i compensate by minding other peoples when they go away etc. it will improve with time but you will never forget your best friend.
