    My dog, Indy, passed away this morning at 6 a.m. He was a black and tan miniature dachshund, fifteen-and-a-half years old, I've had him since I was 11. He's been in declining health for awhile, and finally his heart just gave out. We were taking him to the vet to see if they could make him more comfortable, but he died in my arms around the time we got into the parking lot. :( 

    Right now I'm at the point where I see random things in the house that remind me of him and start crying. :cry

    awww, I'm sorry :(  it's very hard to lose a pet. I am sure you gave him a great life, and that's all you can do for a pet is give them all the love in the world :)

    It is really tough to lose a pet. I lost mine almost 4 years ago and I still miss the dog. I wish you, and your family the best.

    I've lost a lot of pets so I feel your pain. I dread the day my current dog Rocky has to leave us. I'm really sorry that happened :(

    I'm sorry to hear that your dog died. I can feel your pain.
    My dog Max died four days before his 12th birthday. He was born in my home on 10.8.1993. His heart also gave up. I miss him very much, but I found a stray not two full months after he died, also male, that has mannerisms of Max and his father, its uncanny. I really think Grizzly is Max's son (Max was just like his father, big womanizer,).
    All I can say in the end is, get yourself another dog, you will feel much better.

    Oh man, you have my absolute deepest sympathies for your loss. My dog will most likely die this year as she is very old as well and I am dreading the day she does. I have had many pets in the past and losing one is never easy. Please take care and I wish you and your family the best during your grieving period. God Bless.

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. We lost our dog on Christmas 2005, and it hit my mother hardest of all. What's worse is that we were all overseas at the time, so my dog died alone.

    It still really upsets me that she (my dog) wasn't surrounded by family when she finally passed away.

    Sorry to hear that. My dog died a few years ago. I visit him everytime I go to my folks house where he is burried.

    Thanks, guys.

    We're going to have him cremated and keep the ashes in an urn or something. We'll also probably get a new puppy in a few months (my uncle has started breeding dachshunds, and he has a litter due in March). This is as much for as as it is for the other dog, who's been really mopey ever since we came back without Indy. She kind of considered him her mate, even though he was nine years older than her. Ideally she'll consider the new puppy her baby. If nothing else, a puppy will get her to exercise, since she's put on a lot of weight since she was spayed.

    For now, though, it really feels like there's a bigger gap in the family than one dog would suggest. Even activities that don't involve him have me thinking things like "I'm eating buffalo wings... how can I eat buffalo wings without Indy?" The hard part will be sleeping, he always slept in my bed with me. It's going to be a rough night.

    Tomorrow will be a year since I lost my cat Susie, I still walk around the house saying that I miss Woogie. Had to sleep downstairs the first few nights after I lost her.

    My heart goes out to you and your family.
