My sincere sympathies Pete - it's a hard one we know. There's not much one can say at a time like this but I feel for you.

Pete,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Moe. I think making the decision and having a pet put down is one of the hardest things there is to do. A lot of us have been in your shoes and know just how you feel right now.

Sorry for your loss Pete
Ours was 15 and then we looked after a friend's old dog whilst they were overseas for 2 years. Both caused such heartache that we haven't had another for some years.
SWMBO is talking about getting one but I am not so keen.

Kind regards
Bruce

I feel for you Pete. I went through it once and could never face that again. Just enjoy all the happy memories.

Pete we know what you are going thru.
A couple of years ago we had to put our old dog to sleep.
Very sad day we never forget.
Remember the nice times you had with your friend.

I want to thank all of you for your very kind thoughts and for sharing your own experiences. Moe was my buddy and followed me everywhere. If I was making noise in the shop he would wait for me on the back steps to greet me when I came in. If he deemed the noise level to be acceptable, he would lay on the mat just inside the shop door. Always happy to be with people.

My brother described his personality: 

"He was such a wonderful spirit. Always just happy to be himself, never asking much but always providing others joy. He made you feel good just to have him close by."

Thank you all so much,

Pete
