Thank you all for the support and kind words.  We put her down on Monday.  jingle.son goes to school about 30 minutes from the house, so he gets a ride everyday - Monday he sat in the back seat with the dogs and cried the whole way there  :'(.  When we were at the vet, Hershe gave me a look that said "it's ok" and "thank you" all at once.  I could tell she was ready to go.

Last weekend, we took one fanal trek through the forest across the street from us, and got this picture.  jingle.son did the extra digitization.



There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful 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 were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again.
There is only one thing missing,
they are not with their special person who loved them so much 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 runs from the group!
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him in your arms and hug him.
He licks and kisses your face again and again -
and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting
pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I am so sorry about your dog. That is a beautiful picture.




My Olliver, aka, Ollie. I love Dachshunds. 3 of my favorite pics of him. 1st one is when he stole some corn. 2nd one is he and my cat, Leona. (I love both dogs and cats btw). Last one he's like looking at me saying: WOT U WANT M8?

We got a puppy today! Foster is an Australian Shepherd who is 10 weeks old, and from a breeder in Iowa. She looks so much like Max, that it truly filled a void. I miss Max like crazy, but she has a lot of mannerisms that he had and like I said, looks so much alike.





Cheesy, I know, but I think it's beautiful in a way. Max gets to meet her.

Foster found Max's old soccer ball in the yard the other day. Right where he left it in October. She loved it

Wait is that a Bernese Mountain Dog because the colors on her face looks the same but I don't think i've seen white legs though. Really cute though and speaking of, i'm guarding this furry thing this weekend:

Norman being a goof ball next to his aunt Koda. Sadly, at nearly 15 years of age, Koda was put down last night. She was put to sleep on her bed while stuffing her face full of steak and cheese, surrounded by most of her family. Victoria got Koda as a present for her 13th birthday. She's holding it together pretty well. There were talks of putting her down when V and I first met 4 years ago, so she's just happy she got to make it this long.

Chino, sorry to hear of your loss. A question for you and jingle -  When your dog passed away, did you cremate and keep the ashes or something else?

We are facing the same in the near future.  We took our 14 year old mixed breed to the vet and basically she is old with decreased liver and kidney function.  She will not stay still and sounds like a dog with emphysema after very little walking and up the stairs.  They gave us some pills for pain to help the joints.  Thankfully the pill for pain is fruity and she gobbles it up and the joint pill looks like a rolo candy and smells like meat.

This is going to be tough as this will be our first natural death for a pet.

Damn Brian. I'm sorry.


I forgot this thread was a thing.

We got a puppy a few months ago. Gidget. She is a rescue from our local shelter.  She was found at about a month old on the side of the road, emaciated and coated in fleas. The vet at the shelter said she didn't think she was going to make it.

Now she's about 6 months old, and rambunctious as hell.

We still aren't sure what she is. Chihuahua /  Yorkie /  ? mix.





 
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Welp, this weekend was pretty terrible, especially for my mom. Our first family dog had to be put down last Friday.

We got Mia when I was still a junior in high school (2005) and about a year ago she got diagnosed with an enlarged heart. A few months ago she started breathing heavily and the doc said she was getting fluid in her lungs. She got a medication to help it and it seemed to hold her over for a while. Last week she started breathing very short breaths at a fast pace, so my folks brought her to the animal hospital. They had her in a glass box pumped full of oxygen for three days. She was only supposed to be in there one night and the doctor was confident that she was going to be okay.

My dad called me at work Friday morning and said they were advised to put her down. I dropped everything and left the office. She died surrounded by my parents, my sister, and I, all failing miserably to keep it together. I was hurting more for my mom than anything, but I was still a mess inside. That pooch followed her everywhere, and when my sister and I were in college, and my dad would go away on business (usually once a month), Mia is all my mom had for several days at a time. They were really close and my mom completely lost it once they doctor declared her dead.

I hated how the whole thing went down. The poor girl had to spend her last three days in a noisy box in an ICU room where the lights never turned off. She was surrounded by strangers and was unable to sleep for 3 days because she couldn't lay down and breath at the same time. And after having to put her down in some dingy x-ray room, the only way out of the building was through the lobby. I wish there was a side door so my mom (and family) didn't have to walk through a waiting room full of people sitting next to their happy spirited, still living dogs. At least my mom was able to bring her bed and two favorite toys that she's had since she was a puppy, and she took her last breaths tucked under her favorite blanket.

Chihuahuas catch a lot of flack for their attitudes and barkiness, and sure, Mia was a total cunt when it came to vacuum cleaners and contractors, but she was still a good dog and she brought my mom more smiles in 13 years than I probably have in my 29. I'm going to miss seeing her every Wednesday night when I visit my folks. 

Rest easy, pooch.

So, nine-years old and Sagan is a bigger baby about thunderstorms than ever. We're having a lovely little spring cloud burst outside and he's practically crawled into my lap as I type this. It wouldn't be so bad if he didn't weigh 70 lbs.
