FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
We love our pets. I had to have my little dog, Puppet, put to sleep this morning. He's been my constant companion for 13.5 years. He was failing so much that he couldn't even stand up to eat or relieve himself. It seemed to happen so fast - but my vet said that is typical. Our doggies compensate for their failing health until they can no longer. We've all lost pets and I know you know how I feel. But he had a good long life and was well loved. RIP Puppet.

I'm so sorry waldensouth, many of us know what you're going through. At least Puppet didn't suffer and you have many years of memories to look back on.

I'm so sorry, Waldensouth. Puppet will be greatly missed, I know.

Yes, we love our pets - you know I do. How is Kid Wonder handling this?

I feel your pain too! We lost our beloved Chelsee (cocker spaniel) last September. She was with us 16 years. Great memories and such a good buddy. I understand and will think of you! Blessings

I've been through this and definitely feel your pain. May time ease the pain and make the memories of puppet clear in your memory.

WS, so sorry about Puppet. Big hugs for you.

I often think about how our family would feel if we lost our dog, we know it's going to hurt.

I hope that you're feeling better soon and maybe eventually you'll be ready for a new companion. smile

I'm sorry, WS. I don't know how I missed this yesterday, but I'll offer my belated condolences. Unfortunately I'll be right there with you soon for my 9 year old, tumor-riddled ferret. frown

Been there and know how difficult it is. Thinking of you and your daughter. It will be tough when you go home tonight and Puppet isnt there to greet you. You'll be missing a family member.
