    The kennel got smaller today

    Our aging Lab Priscilla let us know in the wee hours this morning that it was her time.

    Lots of dogs in my history, but I never had one as dedicated to my existence as Lady P. I was with her until after she drew her last breath, the least I could do for this incredibly faithful friend. A very sad day here, as many of you know well.

    It's amazing how an animal really does become a family member. Sorry for your loss!

    You have my deepest condolences, Gary, I know very well of what you speak.

    Dogs become members of our families. I know how hard it is for them to depart. Condolences @gasmitty for your loss.

    So sorry, Smitty. This stuff is ROUGH.

    We're still mourning our chocolate Labradoodle, Daisy. We lost her five years ago, and we miss her every single day.

    We have never had a better friend. Daisy was there to greet Priscilla, in Doggy Heaven.

    My deepest sympathy. It’s always hard.

    We are going to have to let our Macey go tomorrow. Love that girl.

    Gary, I know what you're going through. Losing our faithful canine friends is so difficult because they truly become full family members.

    So sorry for Macey too. 😢

    The only thing these threads are good for is to remind us of the friends we’ve lost, and to sympathize currently with the grieving owners of today.

    So sorry for you.
