    Lost my old girl today. 16+ years, not that her age made it any easier to say goodbye. Dogs just give so much and for really not wanting much in return. Sad day :cry:


    Don, i know you definately have dogs, oops, I mean Airedales (aka Terrordales) ;) . Who else out in KC land has a "fur kid" of some kind? I would love to hear about them and what they mean/meant to you.

    Kris, you have my sympathies.:cry:
    It's never easy when you have to help one of the fur kids take the trip over the Rainbow Bridge.
    I remember everyone of my hairies who has made the journey over the past 56 years.

    So sorry to hear that Kris. Never easy.

    We have a black Labrador (Cleo) who's nearly 10, and a Labradoodle (Gomez) who's 6 months and will be lucky if he makes it to "adulthood" if he keeps eating everything like he is at the moment. Still, love him to bits though. :lol:

    Cleo has had a new lease on life given to her since he has arrived, and has shown Gomez all of the tricks of the trade and because of that, he's a much better puppy than she was. She's also lost 6 kilos without even trying. Wish it were that easy for humans!!

    Deepest sympathies Kris. I really feel for you. What a sad, sad day indeed.

    Don't know what I'll do when it's time to say goodbye to Molly. I'll certainly never be the same again. She's healthy and happy at the present, but she also turns 12 this December, so I know I don't have all that long with her now.

    Kris,

    You've had the inevitable day that we all dread....:cry:

    My dog, (and I say dog, coz apparently a Labrador is not an Airedale), means the world to me, and much more than a lot of people I know.

    Cherish the memories, through the pain...... and don't be shy about about the grieving - it's very real!

    The time to move forward, is when you're ready.... :heart:

    sorry to hear your sad news. I lost a very special dog a few years back - had to put her down. She was a big part dingo and a small part red healer.
    After thinking I would never get another dog (for about 3 days) I got on the net and started my love affair with Kelpies. Got one flown up from Adelaide and have never looked back. We have 2 kelpies now :)
    Dogs are good mates and the loss of one is definetely hard.
    :cry:

    We currently have 6 dogs. See my avatar for the breed. All but one are rescues. There are another 4 in the rose garden. We lost those 4 in a period of less than 3 years. Two we did not know how old they were. The others went too young. We miss all four dearly.

    So now the busses are named after them. When any of our current rescues mis-behave I threaten them with buying another kombi :lol:

    Have just read posts. Thankyou so so much for your words and thoughts, more tears:cry: . A few giggles about puppy antics too.
    Will reply more later to your lovely posts, tired and puffy eyed and off to beddy.
    Give all your four-legged kids a cuddle and pat for me.

    Sorry to read about your loss, I feel your pain. :(

    We too are animal lovers and Ruby, who could have easily stood in for 'Marley the worst dog in the world' is showing signs of aging now. After years of us wishing she would slow down and behave we now wish we had the young naughty Ruby back.

    It's so hard to watch while her muzzle grows greyer, her back legs start failing her and her eyes loose their clearness. The really funny thing is that now she is 9 she actually comes when she is called...who said 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks' :lol:

    Their lives are way to short, we would love them to live for ever, but sadly this cannot happen, but what we are left with is so many beautiful memories.
