    Re: My Boy crossed the bridge today...

    So the wife and I had to make the tough decision to have our beautiful orange and white Brittany Kahlen put down today. She was having heart problems, and stopped eating, and believe me she took her kibble very seriously. It was the right decision, but it sure doesn't make it any easier. R.I.P. you crazy dog.

    Sorry about that moewan, it's hard, I put my boy down a week after he was diagnosed, he too stopped eating and was resigned to pass, I gave him his wish and cried for two days.

    I'm trying to fill the huge hole with two new ones, it's gonna be hard, but it's a journey

    Thanks for the thoughts everyone. It's been a tough summer for us, we had two elderly dogs and they both left us within two months of each other. At least we have our four year old Brittany, Julia Child, to help ease the pain.

    We had to have our Daisy(11 year old Black lab mix) put down on Monday. She had had cancer surgery in early July and it came back very quickly with more tumors. She was such a spectacular dog! Going home from work was the hardest yesterday, without her to greet me.

    So very, very sorry redhawkfish. Daisy had a wonderful life with you.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Reading this thread is bringing back a lot of memories of pets I've had and lost over the years. Lots of good memories and a tinge of sadness.

    Told my little one that Liberty was going to heaven today, she got excited and happy. Wish I was as naive, one of the toughest decisions I have made.
    Brought home a new pup last week. He is a Vizsla, named him Griffey. It was actually the wife's idea. She said she wants my son to attach to a new dog before he leaves in June for Basic and AIT.

    Re: My Boy crossed the bridge today...

    A couple of months ago we had a stray dog find us. We didn't really know what to do, she was very sweet and energetic. After a long discussion we decided that we would keep her. When we first took her to the vet they originally said she was around 2 years old and spayed. When we took her to our vet she turned out to be 8 months and needed to be spayed. We named her Lola and are still getting used to a younger dog in the house. She and my daughter have become best friends and Lola is pretty protective over my daughter. We still miss our old dog like crazy but Lola has been a nice addition to our family.
