    Yeah kinda of a shitty day. My best buddy died today. Took him to the vet three days ago becuase he was acting really lethargic and suddenly lost use of his back legs. Found out he had a massive tumor in his chest that was restricting his breathing and pinching a nerve or some such. Asked how long he had and the doctor said a week tops. So we made him comfy as best we could and I decided I was going to take him in to put him down. I would have done it a day sooner, but today (thursday) my wife and I had to go to a foster parent evaluation because we want to adopt our foster son. (lots of red tape and crap. 4 hours worth of questions to make sure we are good parents)
    He wasnt looking good this am, but I told him before we left, that I loved him and its ok if he had to go. And subborn to the last, he waited for me and my wife to get home and come see him, to get one last moment with him before he died in our arms. I'm gonna miss him so much, but hes in a better place now.

    Wow, not to be a wuss or anything, but a tear rolled down my eye as I read your post. I was really touched. I feel your pain. My condolences to you my friend. Your best friend might be gone but not forgotten.

    I recently lost my dog of about 15 years, and it's one of the worst feelings in the world. My condolences, man.

    My deepest condolences. He may have left this world, but he'll never leave that special place you hold for him in your heart.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. He sounds like a great friend. I hope you find it in yourself to adopt another best friend sooner than later.

    Sorry to hear that. Lost my horse a few years ago and my best dog bud when I was ten. They just worm their way in your hearts so easy and it so sad to see them go but at least he does not hurt anymore.

    I salute you sir, for having compassion. I know that if I lost my Dog, or my other Dog, or even my cat, then I would be heartbroken. I probably wouldn't even be capable of making a thread I would be so overcome by the grief.
    My condolences to both you, and to Goliath.

    Just suffered through the same thing about a month and half ago man. :(  It sucks when youre best bud passes away like this especially due to tumors and unexpected crap like that. At least he's in a better place and hey now he gets to go play with my dog too. :D

    I lost my dog 16 years ago and then I had another one that got out. I searched the neighborhood and put an ad in the paper. I never found her.

    My mother has a 12 yr-old Maltese. A couple of months ago we noticed he was urinating too much at night and had blood in his urine.

    We took him to the vet and they found a tumor in his bladder. So far he is still acting okay and eating. I don't know if I mentioned this once before.

    I'm very sorry to hear this. I know how you feel. Several years ago my cat had a brain tumor. He was in terrible shape. When I came home from college to visit my parents and my old cat buddy, he was happy to see me, licked me on my hand, rubbed his head on me, curled up next to me and passed away quietly. My parents were going to put him down but felt I should see him before that happened.

    I don't care what anyone says, animals are very special creatures, and will be faithful friends/companions for life. They have souls and they know how to give love and all they ask is to be loved in return. That is a fine dog you had. A very nice dog indeed.

    #hugs

    Lost my beloved cat recently (my best friend for 21 years), so I know your feelings right now.

    It must have been really hard for it to sneak up on you like that. I was lucky in that I knew the day was approaching for a while.But the lows you're feeling now will, slowly, level out. It does get... not easier, but it gets... steadier, I think, as the weeks go by. :( 

    PM me if you want to talk. :)
