Default lost a good one last night

I had to put my big boy down last night. complete tear of his ACL and MCL and at 94lb and clumsy as hell, plus advanced kidney issues, he was not a candidate for either wheels or surgery.

i can say without any hesitation that Pete was the sweetest and kindest soul i have ever known and i only hope that i meet him again one day. the peace that his presence brought was like a deep breath - thanks buddy until i see you again

My heart goes out to you both. Had to let my Sophie go 2 yrs ago after 17 yrs. It still is painful.

I'm sorry DC. I hope you find comfort in your memories of all the good times you had together.

The truest comment I've ever seen about dogs was the quote " the creation of the dog was God's finest hour".

That just sucks. They are family members.

So sorry to have had to go through that, but there just comes a time when there is too much suffering.

So sorry for the loss of your sweet friend DC. Looking at Pete's picture and thinking about the dogs I have and have lost, and I'm feeling it right along with you man. I have no doubt Pete knew he was lucky to have you as well
