    Tuff to lose one. We have an 11 year old golden house dog going downhill. I am trying to prepare my wife for it but it will be a tough one on her. She had her before she had me and a rough time in her life. I hope your family remembers all the good times.

    Russ,

    I'm sorry you and your family are going through this. It is never easy for ourselves, watching your family grieve is even worse.

    So sorry for your loss.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Russ,

    I lost my Kate the same way and the pain was visceral. Your having to be strong and supportive for your family may be a gift in a way. We sign up for this, but I believe our dogs don't want to be the source of our pain. They don't live like that and I don't think they want to be remembered that way. Easy to say when your pain is raw, but try and think of what a great life she had with you and your family. Not every dog is so lucky to be genuinely cared about.

    Best to you and yours.

    Godspeed Libby-

    Russ, I'm sorry... They are family members and it is heart wrenching to lose them. My thoughts are with you and your family... Especially the boys...
