    Our 4 legged security had to be put down

    Magneto a Lab/Shep mix who had guarded our grandchildren, secured our home, and stopped a robbery of the house across the street simply got too old and was in constant pain. He was 14 years old and was in so much pain we had to put him down.

    Sorry to hear it. A good dog is as hard to replace as a good wife is hard to find.
    Great privilege comes with great responsibility.

    Sorry to hear the news. You're in my thoughts. You performed the greatest act of love for Magneto, although it certainly does not feel that way right now.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. When we had to put Ruby, our German Shorthair down, I was crushed. She also had raised grandchildren, been a faithful protector, wonderful friend, and physical conditioning coach. It took almost 4 years to get to the point where Otis the snaggle-toothed boxer rescued me. I hope your healing is faster.

    Over the years I have had to put to many beloved, faithful loyal friends to rest. I am sorry for your loss but glad for the time you had with him.

    Losing a member of the family is never easy. I truly feel your pain. We went through the same situation a year ago.

    God bless!
