One thing I'm very grateful for is living in a rural area. For both our our two dogs that we had put to sleep, our vet drove 30 miles to come to the house. Was still hard but was some comfort that they were at home.

My condolences. Dogs are like family and it is always a difficult time when one passes.

Appreciate it nimrod. They were all tough, but this one was the toughest as he was the baby of our pack.

Just to close this thread out.

Here is the master training the student. Stink was abandoned on a major highway in a box with his brothers and sisters. Skid was abandoned in one of my daughters friends barns. Both were under a month old when they were abandoned.

Those pics are wonderful Chris, you'll always have the memories. We often look at the old pics of our long gone furry Family members and smile as we reminisce. Usually starts a conversation like"Remember the time..."

Totally agree with this sentiment. We lost ours last year, but I think of her every day. It will get better, but it does take a while. Take care!

Thanks MJ, we're the same way. Every dog had their own special thing that we remember.

No problem and thanks noboundaries. Pups don't ask for much, but they give everything.

Appreciate it Mneeley, we see things all the time that remind us of our past pups. Even some of the bad experiences now bring a chuckle to my wife and I.

Sad and joyful day today. I get to pick up Boomers(Skidmarks) ashes this afternoon, and give him a proper burial in his favorite spot in the yard.
