    Well, I'm not a huge fan of these threads, but I know the need for them.

    I got a phonecall from Mom today letting me know that CJ, my childhood dog, passed this morning while she was combing her. CJ had been having seizures for the last year that medication was barely taking the edge off of. I know that she is better off, but it really brought me around to how much I love my pets, and through further introspection my friends and family.

    'xcuse me while I go and have a cry now...

    R.I.P. CJ :( 

    My dog also passed away earlier this year. She spent 17 years with me, and I even broke her placenta when she was born. I still miss her everyday :(

    Sorry to hear that. My family lost our border collie Teddy this summer, so I sympathize.

    Nothing like loosing a childhood pet. I have never cried when a family member died, but when a pet died I just couldn't help it.

    Well at least your dog doesn't have to deal with the seizures.

    I know what it's like to lose a pet. :(  I still miss my cat Rusty to this very day.

    But your dog's in a better place now.

    That poem made me tear up. Seriously. That is one of the most moving things I've ever read. Thank you. And I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your dog.

    Yeah, my family had to put down our family dog a few years ago when she was 15. I got over it later that day, but there at the vet, I just broke down.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I got back home yesterday and found her favorite spot and dug her a spot. Put her there with her favorite tug rope.

    The good of the situation? Mom had been contemplating being a foster home for Sheltie Resuce, but didn't want to cause CJ problems with new dogs in the house. Now she's going to give it a bit of time, but is planning on taking fosters as needed.

    My deepest condolences Aaron. I remember when my child hood dog passed away... we never got another.

    Same here, very moving poem.
