    I'm really sorry for your loss. They just don't stay around long enough. No matter how many dogs you have, you won't forget. The only consolation is that over time the memories will be happy ones.

    I know exactly how you feel. When I took Maggie to the vet for the last time, he said "Bob, this is the last best thing you can do for her". You have my heartfelt condolences.
