More sad news
« on: January 11, 2019, 05:01:35 PM »
If yíall ever happen to notice my avatar, itís a picture of my bestest buddy. A white German Shepherd. Well today I had to make the decision to tell him goodbye. Cancer zeroed in on the kidneys and in the span of a week, he was helpless. He and I had a good long talk this a.m. and we agreed on the solution. Heís resting comfortably tonight. He did want me to say hey to all the forum members he met at Cabin Fever. Thanks guys

I am one of the lucky ones that met him at CF. I feel your loss Eric. DOG has even been a part of many of our PM's and I will miss that!!

I offer my deepest sympathy, Eric. Tomorrow is one year since we had to say good by to ours.

Thanks for all the replies and condolences guys. Being an only of an only, I kinda get attached to things. DOG was always willing to load up and go with me wherever and whenever I wanted to and now I kinda feel empty

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss Eric. My condolences.
I remember meeting DOG at Cabin Fever a few years ago.
Give my best to Lou as well.

Eric,
 Sorry to here that. I know your pain!
We had ourís cremated, he now resides on the printer in the office, as I canít get to grips with moving him on. I talk to him often & leave him in charge of the house when we go on holiday.

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

Very sad to hear this. Dogs become family members and their passing leaves a big hole. Our Lily had to go the same way just before Christmas at less than 4 years old. I know how you feel. Remember the good times.             Terry

Eric, I'm so sorry to hear this, I have been in the this position more times than I like to think about, and as you know its never easy.
You can rest easy knowing the you gave DOG the best possible life that you could, and when it was time, you were able to let him go with out needless suffering.

I read this at work earlier today and have been thinking about you and Lou off and on all day, I hope that you guys and doing ok and when the time comes you will be able to find a new friend to fill that huge empty spot.

Take care my friend,
Dave

Dave is right Eric. While DOG can't ever be replaced, that hole can be filled. We all need that unconditional love and trust they freely give us.
