    This man's best friend lost

    Yesterday I had to put my 5 1/2 year old Red Doberman Chloe to rest. Her health had deteriorated to such a point that there was no hope for her recovery.

    We had a great last day at the park with my other dog Pierce where Chloe was able to play and show off some of her old spirit and energy. She passed away in my arms peacefully at the Vet's office.

    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.

    Sorry to hear... our dogs bring us so much joy, and then so much sorrow when they leave us. I've been there, and I can only say I share your sadness.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend. They mean so much to us and take a piece of our hearts when they leave.

    Good looking dog...I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.
    Nothing worse than losing a faithful canine friend...I've had to do the same thing...very tough.

    someone said it best... we don't own dogs; dogs own us
    this is my favorite poam may it help you find peace

    May I Go Now?

    May I go now?
    Do you think the time is right?
    May I say goodbye to pain filled days
    and endless lonely nights?
    I've lived my life and done my best,
    an example tried to be.
    So can I take that step beyond
    and set my spirit free?

    I didn't want to go at first,
    I fought with all my might.
    But something seems to draw me now
    to a warm and loving light.
    I want to go
    I really do.
    It's difficult to stay.

    But I will try as best I can
    to live just one more day.
    To give you time to care for me
    and share your love and fears.
    I know you're sad and afraid,
    because I see your tears.

    I'll not be far,
    I promise that, and hope you'll always know
    that my spirit will be close to you
    wherever you may go.
    Thank you so for loving me.
    You know I love you too,
    that's why it's hard to say goodbye
    and end this life with you.

    So hold me now just one more time
    and let me hear you say,
    because you care so much for me,
    you'll let me go today.

    Buddy, I've been where you are right now. We've lost several of our very special family members over the last few years.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in our prayers. They come into our lives, give so much, but ask so little. The pain you feel shows how much love was shared. The more love you share, the more pain you feel.

    barstoolguru: The poem brought tears. I lost my baby March 30 this year. Pebbles (cat) was 13 and had been in bad health more than half her life. I had her from the day she was born. She was quite a cat. She would cry for me to pick her up then she would climb up on my shoulders. Then she would purr and nuzzle my ear. I still miss her. I now have a new kitten who is quite rambunctious and a joy to watch.

    I'm really sorry, my wife's dog passed away a few days ago, I know how hard it is. They're more than just pets, they're family.

    I was fortunate like you to be there and be holding him when he passed at the vets office.

    May God give you peace during this time. My tears go with you.

    Sorry for your loss. Been there many times over the years. It never gets easier. I've found comfort in Rainbow Bridge knowing that someday I'll be reunited with my four legged friends.
