    Default My dog is sick and it's only a matter of time

    Wellmy best bud in the world, JD, is sick. His kidneys are failing him and nothing else that can be done. JD is my black lab that is 7 years old which is way the hell too soon to lose my bud. If I had to guess Id say weve got about a month or two left with him. Its to the point to where my 5 year old son has figured it out which makes things a bit worse.

    His full name is 4XGMPR HRCH Hunters Marsh Jack Daniels Bubba Jazz MH and hes a better dog than I deserve, but I tried to measure up. With all being said he doesnt give a crap about his titles. He just loves to train and to be with his family.

    If you all could keep us in your thoughts Id appreciate it.

    Sorry to hear your dog is ill. 7 years old is way too young.

    No words except sorry. I can tell you love your dog a lot and I'm sure he loves you right back, a lot. Peace be with you.

    So sorry for you Joe. I have loved your avatar ever since you joined here! Any indication of what caused the kidney failure at such a young age?
