I'm a dog guy, its awful quite not having a dog around the house. My home is otherwise very active with young kids and two working adults...but no dog. I feel guilty search for another one already, but I can't stand not having a dog.

Hey SIXTO, sorry to hear that, a good dog is a hard thing to lose. THANKS for the heads-up though. I have a life stages crate for my Lab just like the one you have, folds down and all, made by MidWest homes for pets. It will be replaced today.

Wow, SIXTO, sorry for your loss; I know that hurts. My dog, Tangle (guess where my forum name came from?) is getting up in years and I know 'that' day is coming; it's gonna hurt.
Here's another heads up. Tangle kept getting out of our chain link fence at the gates. A larger dog we kept for a while damaged the gate by chewing the aluminum ties at the bottom of the gate, so Tangle, being a smaller 22 lb dog figured she could squeeze out and did so. Here's the heads up - I repaired the gate with cable ties and Tangle chewed through them and got out again. So I went to ACE and got the real aluminum wire ties and repaired it and she chewed through them and got out again. So be aware that dogs can chew throught cable ties.
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
Dogs can chew through about anything if they are determined, my goal with the zips ties is to slow them down a bit, and hopefully you will notice they have been working on it before a tragedy happens.
As a side note, I had a bird dog that was a great escape artist when he was a pup. We had to tie the door shut on his crate because he figured out how to open the latches. Then, he started to untie the rope. Not chew it off, but he untied them. I gave up on the crate for him, he roamed the house until he went to the big bean field to chase pheasants everyday.

Sixto, sorry about the loss of your family's dog.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
Sorry to hear about your dog. My dog used to sleep in a crate but when I was deployed last year my wife let him sleep in bed with her, good thing its a queen size and he's only 15 lbs cause he doesn't want anything to do with the crate anymore.
