    Today we had to put one of ours dogs, Oreo to sleep.

    The wife had him for ten years as of yesterday, he was in my life for at least 5.

    We discovered about a month or so ago that Oreo had cancer, we had the tumor removed once, and it came back this time bigger than before, and it was growing rapidly.

    We tried to make his last few days here with us as comfortable as possible, but after he collapsed yesterday, we knew it was time.

    These things are never easy, we that have pets love them dearly (the wife and I refer to Oreo and Psycho as our "kids") but today our household is one less....:( 

    Those of you that pray, please keep us in your and prayers....

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    Sorry to hear about that Plowking. I have a "kid" myself. They mean the world to you and when you lose them... it's awful.

    I've also lost one before... hopefully it will be a long time before I have to go through that again.

    awww, man, I'm sorry to hear that. as an animal lover and pet owner, I feel your pain. I've put down one pet, and gotten the message that another one was put to sleep. it hurts so much. just know that you did right by him, and that he appreciated all of your love.

    Sorry to hear that dude. We've had a black lab name Oreo for a few years. We weren't able to bring her to the new place, so we had to give her to the inlaws while we live here. Hoping that one day, we can take her back.

    Losing an animal is a horrible experience. You and your wife seemed like great owners, though, and it's a wonderful thing that he had such caring and loving parents for his time on earth.

    Now it's time for The Rainbow Bridge poem, a piece of work that no matter how many times I read it makes me bawww like a little girl. I know, I'm a wuss.

    I am very sorry for you loss. I remember having to put down my cat when I was a kid. I was a mess. But he was old and sick and I believe it was the best thing for him.

    Hey Eric, sorry for you're loss. It's a horrible thing to lose a family member, especially when they go quick. We lost one of ours a couple of years ago, and I took it harder than my children did. Take care of yourselves.

    Eric, man, that is awful. You and Mrs. Plowking are in my prayers! The wife and I are getting a black shih tzu puppy tomorrow, Buster, and his middle name will now be Oreo :D
