Thanks guys not sure why when garbage like this happens I feel a little better posting it here.

My dog was Lab/Spanial mix 8 years old looked like a small cow, dumb as a sack of hammers but the best temperment I could ever imagine for a dog.  I am going to miss coming home from work after really shitting day and seeing Sid with that simple look on her face tail a wagging.  Also used to love when my wife would take my kids to her home town to see their grandparents would always tell my buddies how much I loved drinking with Sid, she never once judged me when I went to mix another Crown at 2am. 

 

She was the best.

I had a pretty lousy day today.  Gonna go have dinner and a drink with my gal, but I know our 2 pets will be waiting at the front door when we get home.  I can be fuming on my way home, but you always know your pet is gonna be there.  They never really have a bad day.

Sorry to hear that. Brought tears to my eyes and i kinda wish i wouldnt have read it. My dog too is getting up there and im afraid im gonna have to put her down soon. Shes the best also . Loves you unconditionally. Ive always said the kind of woman i want should be like my dog. Always happy to see you and never judges you and is always by your side when things are good or bad... I have a 14 year old german sheppard she the last thing i have since my mom and dad passed. Her backs legs are slowly giving out < some tissue in her nose but shes still happy and rolling around. Every christmas birthday and new years eve she gets a porterhouse steak cause i dont know how much time she has left. We also drink beer together. Im gonna dread the day when i gotta do this. Take care my friend and my prayers are with you.

Sorry to hear man, very sad.

I am getting close to this point with 1 of my dogs as well

On a side note, not to be insensitive...but does anyone know how much the fees are to have this procedure done & total cost for a cremation or other options? I'm broke & need to start saving for this.

Cremation fees usually go according to the size (lbs) of your dog.

My Rottweiler was about $300 over 2 years ago.

Really sorry to hear Ben - I know it's cliche but getting a new dog soon after Sid passes will def make at least the kids feel better.

Its not "just a dog" its a being with a heart and soul. Which is alot more than you can say about "just a human"

he Rainbow Bridge



There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play with each other.

There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

 sorry to hear Benhogan. dogs are truly like no other living thing. i have a 2 1/2 yr old german shepard. she is the first dog i have ever owned and i would have never imagined i could love a dog the way i love mine.loyal, playful willing to do anything for a tummy rub and never holds a grudge.

there is no easy way to put a dog down and i dread the day but i wish you the best.

The last line in the first post is so true.  Feel lucky and blessed to have had a loyal animal friend.  While it is impossible to not be sad, hold your head high knowing that you provided another living thing with a lifetime of hapiness.

Be there holding your pal when the time comes.  He has spent his whole life making you smile...make sure you are there for him in his final moments.  I don't envy you on this day.  It will be tough.  Kudos to you for being a good pet owner.

I've seen this situation turn the toughest guys I know into babies.  But this just proves how much you loved them.  Good luck to you on this day.  I hope you find comfort knowing that your buddy will be waiting for you when it is your time.
