Arthritis is a problem, and it's not getting better.
But the minute I feel he isn't enjoying life, I have no problem putting him down. I may cry, but
I couldn't imagine keeping him alive if he was in pain.

I am doing a bit better today, hopefully it gets a little better every day.
Awfully lonely in that house by myself though.

My German Shepherd is only 3 but I've already thought about that day. It's going to be terrible. I've went to some funerals in my life but I think that day may be the worst yet.
Some people can't even understand the bond.

Sounds like you gave your dog a very nice life. Hope you can find comfort in that.

Sorry about your loss buddy.
Just remember that he isn't in pain anymore.

That guy loved to get on my bed, he wasn't allowed, but if I left the door cracked even just a bit, he was in that bed. I guess it smelled like me and was crazy comfortable. But whatever.
After I brought him home, I immediately took the sheets off my bed and wrapped him in them. Took him to our beach house and got some lumber. I built him a really nice casket, and buried him by the waterway wrapped in my sheets and in the hand made casket.
I will be having a brass nameplate made and will be attaching it to the house above where I laid him to rest.
Food bowl still has food in it, his bed is still on the floor. Thanks for listening, it helps to read through this thread.
