    R.I.P. Adam - 1999-2008

    I (and my family) lost a faithful companion and family member last night. Adam, our black Lab, suffered a heart condition we did not know about and died suddenly. He was a good dog and shadowed me everywhere I went. He was protective of the family and a good watchdog. We adopted him from shelter when he was 6 months old and we enjoyed the 8 years we had with him.

    Adam, rest in peace, boy. You will be missed.

    My heart goes out to you, I'm still not over the loss of my
    best friend Odie. He was A good Dog.

    I have no clue what I will do without my lab someday, so I understand. Sorry for the loss.

    Had a very fine Lab years ago that was a stray when found at about 4 months old. I understand how you feel. Always seem to need a dog around it's just hard to say good bye to 'em.

    So Sorry That You Lost Your Friend.

    Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.

    never fully understanding the necessary plan."

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Adam looks just like my female lab mix, Jackie. She's playfull but a bit hyper, and very loving and protective.

    I had to put my German Shepard down many years ago. That was the hardest thing I had ever done.

    It is hard to lose a member of your family. Very sorry.

    Thanks for all the responses. We will hitch up our trousers, tighten our shoe laces, straighten our caps, and wipe our tears. And, though a piece of our lives died last night with him, the good memories of him will live on. And so we will go on about our lives because that is what we have to do. Eventually the pain eases and the way clears for another pet to come into your life so we will look ahead to that time. Thanks again for the sympathy notes. I hope all of you have a wonderful day!

    The loss of a faithful companion is hard to bare. Dogs have shorter lives than we do, and I think God did us a favor in that. If we hurt this much after such a short time with our companions, think of how we might feel if they were with us for 30 years? The highest compliment I can pay my dog, and any owner can say about their dog is this, faithful and true, the love between me and you.

    Sorry for your loss, god bless and comfort you and your family.
