Sorry for your loss. I went through that last fall, and words don't really seem to make it better, only time.

Tuffest part of having them is when we loose them.

That is always the worst thing, people who dont understand dog lovers dont understand that they are are a part of the family that we are losing. I fell your pain, and I hope you see part of him in your next pup.

Sorry to hear, bowhunter. I've lost a few in my day. Just as an FYI, it really never gets any easier, either.

So sorry to hear about your friend. It's especially difficult when they go before their time. Incidentally, we lost our 15 year old setter on Sunday.

That truly stinks, and we all grieve with you. I think all of us have lost a dog at some point. Tears your heart out. It really stinks they are only on this earth a short while.

Sorry really it is not good…
Few months ago I had a dog name Lalu but suddenly one day he gets accident by car and he is no more now. No one could understand my feelings for him. He was my family member love him. I can understand you now.
