that sucks Flash. I hate when that decision has to be made. My best goes out to your family.

Flash, I'm at a loss for words. I prayed the little Scooter would get better.
May he rest in peace....icon_sad.gif

Sorry to hear that. I lost mine this past weekend. She was 16 and didn't handle the heat this year. I miss her.

Sorry to hear the news Flash. That's one of the toughest decisions you'll ever be asked to make. But take faith in knowing that he'll be in a better place once it's over with.

Godspeed Scooter, may you rest in peace.

Will keep your family in my prayers. I still haven't washed the one back window in my truck where Aspen used to sniff the air, and it's been 6 months. Those little smudge marks bring back great memories.

Sorry to hear this news Flash. I lost my Lab 6 years ago. I still think of her almost every day.

It's always amazing to me how close we get to our furry friends. Shoot I still remember the dog we had growing up as kids, Daisy, and how much it hurt when it was her time to go. Still get a little misty eyed now some 30 years later thinking about it. They certainly can worm their way into your heart and never let go. Something that non-animal people will never understand.

A couple years ago I found this post on another forum from a gentleman that had just lost his dog, and even though my circumstances aren't exactly the same I think every dog owner knows the truth behind these simple lines.

D@#*! I had to wipe my eyes just to write something. Flash I'm real sorry to hear about Scooter. I know how hard it is to do something like this. I've had to send three of my "children" over the rainbow bridge in the last four years. And always in my arms when they go. Scooter and your family will be in my prayers. God bless.

Thanks so much to everyone. Tonight we grilled up some hamburger, one of Scooter's favs. It took him a bit to get interested, but he gobbled down every bite. He seemed so happy. Then we took him outside for a short walk and a drink of rainwater. He always seemed to like it best. I can tell when he tires because he just stops walking. I kneel down and open my arms to him and he comes to me without fail. He is resting in his bed now. Dam those big brown eyes. I will miss them so much when they close. Suppose to call the vet in the morning. It will surely be a tough day for Cher and I.

Any chance of changing your mind? You never know what a little love may do.

My kids and I read this post together our tears and hearts are with you.

I wish that was all he needs ron, but we have poured our hearts out to him. I have posted on several boards so might be repeating myself. There was a mass between his lungs. No guarantee it is cancer, but a dramatic drop in weight is a pretty good sign of it. Wife and I just cannot keep up with the ups and downs of his health. I was surprised that he made it thru the night actually, but he has a big heart. Vet is delayed, so we wait.

Flash, I am so sorry to hear about Scooter. I thought that he was doing better. It is so hard to loose a pet, they are so unconditional with their love. Our prayers are with you and Scooter.icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
