    2. 19 for dogs is like 300 for humans… It’s impossible not miss a friend… I miss my old friend Lady, she died 6 years ago… It’s true when they say that dogsa are the best friends…

    3. Not stupid at all. Putting down a dog is always so hard and sad 🙁

    4. My wife and I had a rescue dog that had the absolute worst time being left alone. She chewed her way through crates, to the point of breaking all of her teeth, and mangling her paws. We couldn’t afford to put her on heavy sedatives, and it got to the point to where we couldn’t leave the house, or she would tear it all up. Chew through drywall, the door, the carpet, all in an attempt to get “free.” She was a sweet dog, when people were around. We were told that she was not “re-home-able” by the SPCA and the Humane Society. We tried for a long time to get her a home with someone who was home all the time, to no avail. I had to take her to be put down, and I cried like a big blubbering baby. It really hurt my feelings to kill a dog that had no physical illnesses.
      At any rate we just got a new puppy. I picked her up last night. Her name is “Marley” and she is 6.5wks old. She was born Sept. 11th of this year. I’ll submit a pic of her.

      Sorry to hear about you losing your friend. Just know that no matter how assinine we all are here, the majority of us can sympathize, and toast a beer with you.

    10. I feel for you. We had to put down my cat a little under two years ago, he was my best friend, and the worst part is, I was away at a friend’s cottage for the long weekend when it happened. I didn’t even know he was gone until I got back. I had actually been thinking about him a lot that weekend and couldn’t wait to get back and see him…

      On a much lighter note though; 19 years old? That’s like John McCain the dog or something!

    12. Condolences. Many people don’t understand what it’s like to loose a pet that is more of a best friend than a pet. Lost my two goldens this year, so I feel for you.

    13. Such a hard goodbye, even when you know it’s the right thing to do, having a beloved pet put to sleep. My condolences, purple banana.

    15. Man, that sucks.

      I remember losing my “first” dog (I call it my first because it was the first one I connected to as a kid, we had others before it). She was so dedicated. She got into something that made her neck swell, and we couldn’t afford 24-hour vets. She came and lay down beside my bed, and she was gone in the morning. Real sad stuff. This tugs at the heart strings.

    16. Yeah, I’ve never put down a dog before, so it was surprising to me to see that it takes less than 10 seconds… At least she wasn’t in pain when she went, we made sure of that. She was a good girl 🙂 Thanks for all the support <3

    21. Don’t ever call him, “just a dog.”
      Who haven’t the eyes to see
      That I belong to him as much
      As he belongs to me
      God must have had His reasons
      For making the likes of him
      And I humbly hope with all my heart
      …that I was one of them
      The years have dulled his russet color
      And his vision is getting dim
      And he walks with a limp when the days are cold Cause the dampness gets to him
      He’s not as young as he used to be
      And his whiskers are frosted white
      But he wags his tail as if to say
      “You see, I’m still alright.”
      I cut his food in bite size chunks
      And he gives me a toothless grin
      Trusting in my love for him
      Whatever shape he’s in
      He has accepted growing old
      The way men cannot do
      And I’m not ashamed to say he’s taught
      Me more than a thing or two
      So, don’t ever call him “just a dog”
      Unless you are prepared
      To match his steadfast loyalty
      To care the way he’s cared.

    22. You gave her such a long life and I’m sure she couldn’t have asked for more. Dogs don’t ever complain & want nothing more than to make sure you’re happy. If you don’t have a dog, it’s hard to understand, but my dog is by far the greatest thing in my life (don’t tell my fiance that). When I’m happy, she’s happy. When I’m sad, she’s sad. She sleeps at my side every night she is alive and I could never imagine a world without her. I even planned an entire vacation so that my dog could go along with us & went out of my way to rent a convertible so she could enjoy the long drive down PCH.

      My condolences, Purple Banana, I could only hope that my dog lives as long and as happy as your Girlfriend did.

    24. Ach, I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s one of the hardest damned choices a pet owner has to make. You have my every sympathy.

    25. Wow… this is the longest thread I have read in which everyone agrees on one thing. Losing a pet sucks. Looks like a wonderful snuggle buddy.

    26. Your dog and mine share a birthday. And my condolences go out to you and your family. 19 years is a long a full life for any dog.

    27. I can only hope my cat lives as long as Girlfriend did. I’m sure you were a wonderful friend to her.

      My fiance and I had to put down our mouse last year in March. She had breast cancer. He and I cried like idiots the entire time. We got her on some pain medication about two weeks before she had to go. I was completely upset because I found her in the cage not moving and not remaining a body temp. I actually looked at my fiance and said, “I’m so sorry…” because it was his. I picked her up and was very surprised to find that she was still alive.

      The vet knew we didn’t have the money at the time and were kind enough to bill us later. And they even stayed open an extra thirty minutes for us to get there.

      And she was a fucking awesome mouse. She was named TROGDOR for heaven’s sake. >:C She never bit anyone ever and my cat never tried to get at her either.

    28. Like everyone else said, it’s not stupid at all. My cat is getting up there in years, she isn’t really slowing down much but I know her day is coming. And even though she’s a total pain in the ass and I don’t even really like cats that much, I will miss her. Through the worst times in my life, she was laying there next to me… getting on my nerves.

    29. I hate to hear that, PS. I lost my pet snake a little over a year ago and still miss him. And I’ve had a rough month with my dog, Ranger, who’s had some mystery illness and I’ve had to consider putting him to sleep several times. And it kills me every time.

      @storminmormon: that was absolutely beautiful.

    30. @storminmormon: Just about gagged on tears in front of all my coworkers.

      Strange that someone listing a lost friend or family member wouldn’t invoke such a heartfelt response. I think with pets, there are less emotional boundaries. They won’t ever judge you, or take you for granted, so you give your love without prejudice. There was a poem Jimmy Stewart wrote…

    32. I couldn’t even read the last couple of comments because my eyes were so watery and I had to shut my door so my roommates couldn’t see me. I love dogs so much and I’m glad to hear that it was quick and painless, my condolence goes out to you!

    33. I lost a beloved pet as well. When I was in HS I got a dog from the shelter, a purebred yellow lab, and he was only six months old. Living in the country in the Midwest it was like an old timey movie, running through the fields, chasing rabbits, and having a grand time. He was cleverly named Yellow, and as a purebred suffered from odd diseases. After a few years he started to develop arthritis, and then goiters. Recently I moved away from home with my fiancee into an apartment that didn’t allow pets, and it wasn’t long after that that he passed on from cancer. It was extremely saddening knowing that as his best friend, I wasn’t there when he went.

      @Everyone: It’s hard to imagine we’re all human the way everyone tends to go off on one another here, but really, we all are decent human beings and we have to remember that.
