Bo let me tell you a story about Ronald Reagan told by his daughter in a Playboy interview. RR was very fond of his horses. People who ride their horses all the time get as attached to them as we do to our dogs. Well, one day his favorite horse passed away, and as he and his daughter buried it on his ranch, she said he wasn't crying, but smiling. She asked him why, and he said "I'm just thinking of all the wonderful memories this animal has given me."

Each day with something you love is a blessing, not a God given right. I pray every night and thank God for all the blessings in my life. They won't last forever, but the memories will.

Bo you are the third person in just under 24 hrs I know that either has lost a dog or is on the verge.
One of the most unique bonds around.
Hang in there and send em off in style.

Sorry Bo, losing a dog can hurt as much as losing a human family member. One of the few circumstances men are allowed to cry.

Bo, so sorry about your dog. He is too young!

And Squirrel....sorry to hear of your loss.

About those OTC pain meds someone mentioned. Everyone knows that you can't give dogs Tylenol, Advil, etc......right? It is deadly. They can have aspirin. But the stuff you get from the vet is worth it if pain management becomes and issue.

Sounds like one lucky dog, and one lucky owner. Been there, done that and know what you are going through. Not much help available except to focus on the positives and make him comfortable.

Really sorry to hear that man.

One of my dogs had a heat stroke during the summer, she pulled through, but it looked bad for a while. One of the worst days of my life. I'll pray for the little guy.

I'm sorry to hear that. Losing a pet is never easy, especially one as loyal as a dog.

Sorry Bo... that sucks. We lost our 13 y.o. dachsund in 2006 and that was one of the toughest days of my life.
