    Hate to hear that. We have 2 mutts and I dread that day. I'll say a prayer for you both.

    So sorry to hear that, Jon. We all dread such times; Lord knows I've had my share. I resolved years ago that I would be with my pet when the time came so the last things of which they're conscious would be my touch and the sound of my voice.

    Sorry brother. It's tough to lose family, furry or not. To paraphrase something I once read, your dog shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath she draws that her fate was always safest in your hands.

    So sorry to hear that john.

    I have two myself, and can't imagine how you're feeling about this. Try and take comfort that she won't be suffering any more. Easy for someone to say, I know. I don't know what else to say :(

    Family is family, I know the feeling. Thoughts out to you and her. Remember energy can be neither created nor destroyed, she will always be around.

    Jon,
    I am so sorry to hear about this.
    We/everybody hates to face the dreaded reality that this time will eventually come...
    When we have to deal with the end of time for our blessed loved ones.
    Lots of sound advice to be found here from other members...
    It is humbling to see so many share their kind words, thoughts, and experiences.
    I know that this is tough for you, but it has to be extremely uncomfortably hard for the other two members of your family to deal with...
    Seeing/watching one of them start to fade away.
    Be strong for all of them now...
    You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers...
    Will also be burning the sage and sending the smoke your way.

    B2

    She got really bad so I had to stop working.

    She died while I was trying to take care of her.

    I am not sure what to do now, I don't even have a shovel. I have always buried my dogs at home. I guess I need to find someone to borrow a shovel from.

    I am not at all ashamed to say this touched me deeply and made me cry. I have had dogs most of life and have two rescues now, plus a third. I very much know your pain Jon and I so very sorry to hear you are going through this tough time. Please remember the gift of a good life you gave to your friend and companion. The gifts that you received in return will stay in your heart forever.

    Some vets will even make house calls for this.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dog, Jon. Loosing a dog is the worst. Glad you could be there in the end. I know it makes a big difference. Take care.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your dog, at least she is not suffering anymore. I think losing a good dog is as bad as losing a family member.
