    I'm spending November abroad visiting relatives, so my family left the dog in a home to be cared for till we returned.

    He's a black and white Maltese poodle named Fluffy. He was bought by my sister in 2003 as a prize for doing well in an exam. He was a very sweet, faithful and playful dog.

    He collapsed on Monday and left his life on Friday. It's a grievous incident for us all, maybe the more so because we were away from him.

    RIP Fluffy. Thank you for being a wonderful pet.

    I feel for ya bro - they give us so much in the short lifespan they have. I'm coming up on a year since I lost my old man. It feels like yesterday, but also that this year passed too quickly. It's not the same without him here, and it will never be the same. The best advice I can give is this: Think mostly of the good times and how much you and your dog filled each other's lives with love and happiness. It's not so much about how you leave this world; it's more about how you lived in it.

    God bless...

    It’s a feeling I fear I will know soon, my dog is going to be 13 soon...

    My only comfort is that we have another young dog... but I know it will still hurt... :(

    Mine passed away too in July.

    He had cancer, which came as a surprise to us because he was fine a couple of days ago. On the day he died, my grandmother told me he crawled to them as he was weak and couldn't walk no more. So they put him down.

    His legacy lives on, and I'm sorry for your lost.

    Sorry to hear about your dog dead, you have my sympathy.

    My mom and dad's cat died in September and they got a kitten to replace the old cat.

    Sorry for the loss. :(  Losing a pet is never fun. I won’t forget when I had to have my last cat put down when she had cancer. She was only 10, and I was sick with grief after that.

    It’s never fun losing a pet, and I dread the day when my current kitties reach the end of their lives. It will be sadder than the last time, I’m sure.:cry

    Hard to lose Man's Best Friend.

    Something I had to face last year, I couldn't eat, sleep, think happy thoughts and I missed 3 days of work for that.

    My dog died in 2001, we had him since 1987. I still sleep with his collar next to me. The pain never goes away. (excuse the floor in the pic, it was a rented trailer after our house burned down)

    I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain and sorrow of Fluffy's passing will lessen with time, but the memories and love that you had for him will always be there. He'll always be in your heart.

    I'm really sorry about your loss. I know what you're going through right now. We lost both of our dogs this month. One was 12 and had cancer. The vet diagnosed him and told us that we might have two weeks with him. We had three days. He collapsed and was gasping for breath. We took him to the vet and they put him to sleep. Just last Friday, my wife's dog got really sick. She took her to the vet and she was taken to emergency surgery. Unfortunately she didn't survive the surgery. They were actually closing her up when she stopped breathing.

    Bummer. Sorry to hear that.

    We lost a dog too about a year and half ago. We adopted her and it turned out she was older than we were told. One day she was fine, the next, she was dying of congestive heart failure. It's hard when the best decision is to say goodbye.
