    Well I know it's not a smoking thing, but I'm an introvert and this is one of the few places I feel I can open up.

    Today I had to put my friend Aspen down. My wife and I have a beautiful blended family, but she was our "child" together for 12 years.

    She had the equivalent of dementia and it got to the point she was inconsolable at night and we couldn't sleep.

    These are from earlier today.

    Thanks for checking her out.

    I am very sorry to hear that. I fear (know) I will be in that same situation within weeks. I never knew what a dog could do to your heartstrings until my husband and I were married and his dogs became mine.

  7. That's harsh. I feel for you as I have one that's 16 and acting pretty strange.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Just one week ago today, we had to lay to rest our beloved cocker spaniel, Tasha. She had liver cancer which spread to her lungs. Also had her for 12 years. It's hard to get over but hang in there.

    When a beloved friend goes to "Puppy Dog Heaven" it is a very sad time. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I too am saddened to hear your loss. My Mo is very special to me and I will be heart broken if and when he goes.

    Hang in there bud. My current best friend is getting on in age, so I try to prepare myself for that time, but I know I can't.

    My best consolation is knowing that after an appropriate period there will be a new best friend to look at me like I'm the best thing ever.

    Had to do the same thing the weekend after Christmas. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I know how you feel and our thoughts are with you and the missus.

    You have my sympathy. I understand completely how you feel. It never is an easy decision. They definitely are a member of your family.

    I also have had to have a beloved pet put down. It was on Good Friday of last year. It is something I hope to never have to do again.
