The fur balls are family. I just hope that when it is his time, I can handle it with the same courage you’re showing.
Thank you. I found a good vet helps a bunch.
I think loosing 2 much beloved dogs in 2018 the Lord's way of preparing me for next year; my mother has been on hospice care most of the year and the hospice nurses worry more about my dad than my mom and dad isn't even their patient!
If they live to mid-June they will celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary. I don't know if they will make to June or not, each one lives to care for the other one and when one goes I think the other one will go soon after.
I drove down to visit them Thursday and they are doing surprisingly well for 89 yrars and on hospice!
Thanks again y'all for your prayers and support!

.......dale, over the last 64 years , I have been thru this more times than I want to remember. 3 of my dogs have lived to be over 15 years old(2 over 18) and when you lose one after that many years, it's like losing a family member!!......

Sorry for your loss. Believe me when I say I understand the sadness that comes with having to put a friend down.
For some reason while reading this my monitor blurred up really bad.
My best to you and your wife,
God Bless the USA

Very sorry to hear this Dale. Losing our pets is never easy. I recently lost my Golden, Ginger after 13 1/2 years. We surely miss them.

Very sorry to hear about Ginger my friend. If it is any solace I am sure she lived a good and obviously long life. Doesn't make it any easier when they go for sure. You will be reunited some day...
Take care. Regards, Jerry

Sorry for your lost, it's as hard as loosing a family member. I've had to put a couple dogs down and it was so hard that I don't want anymore pets.
