    I still hang out in the backyard where I buried my red hound a year ago. She was a rescue from an abusive neighbor who was stupid enough to toss her from a moving vehicle in my presence. Sometimes my oldest daughter catches me talking to the little mound of rocks.

    The abuse is what killed her. She was unable to learn due to so many hits to the head. She kept breaking chains and ran onto the highway. It messed me up for months. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Dogs are just like siblings and they change who you are. I had a father figure who always told me "If you want to get to know a man, take a look at his dog."

    Bless you my friend. I've been there way too many times myself. Buried them all.
    Most went from natural causes....the one I loved the most I had to put down. That was the day I quit being selfish, and dug a hole big enough for a 100lb dog in the back forty on a cold and wet November night. Longest day of my life. I know your loss...believe me.
    Nothing is ever lost so long as we're still here to remember.

    I hadn't thought of it that way, but you are absolutely correct, sir.

    I hate to be callous about it, especially at this sad time for me but...

    Wow, what a pretty dog! Very sorry for your loss. I have lost a few canine best friends along the way and the day that I lose my buddy that's in my avatar will be a very bad day indeed. This winter, he will have been part of the family for 12 years.

    I'm sorry for your loss. It is heartbreaking when your buddy is gone. I know that feeling.

    I know that she is at peace now as she was in the picture attached from when she was healthy. She had once been a hulking behemoth as she was even curled up on her bed in the photo before her massive weight loss and sickness had begun.

    She was a great loving companion who also doubled as a great security system who will be truly missed.
    I feel for you, we had to put our 8.5 YO lab down last week for similar reasons.

    Never thought of it that way. I got a black lab in Feb, hes 9 months in a week or so. Named him Ninja because he sneaks in the house and steals shoes. Already pretty attached to him.

    Sorry to hear of your loss, rammerjammer.

    Take comfort in the many great memories.

    So very sorry to hear of Chloe's passing. It is really hard to hold them that last time. I have been there too, and as others have said"it never gets easier". Dogs are angels. No other creatures on this earth give us so much and ask for so little in return.
