  1. Yeah, I'm having a tough time eating.................I seem to feel a bit guilty doing so.................. although I can afford to miss a meal or two, still though.... I do ok for a few hours, and then my mind wanders and I head for a melt down again........ 6 foot 300 lb old fart crying like a baby... paints a picture eh?? And yeah, the BL***Y dogs would dig her up again.............................BUT at least you did get a deep enough spot to fill with the tears..... I didn't know I could shed that many tears, personally, and I'm NOT ashamed or embarrassed to say so....... maybe I'm not the hard ass everyone thinks I am.. Thanks guys, you compassion and personal anecdotes are, wonderful to hear, even if a little painful to relate, they are all good, and there have been a lot of pets on this forum that have it made with awesome loving families...... you guys rock !
  2. THANKS Phil, and we are sorry for your loss....... damn animals sure have a way to get into out hearts............... sure can be hard to get past.........
  3. WOW, THANKS, Danny what a kind thing to say............ my sentiments exactly, all we wanted is for her to feel safe , warm, and have a full tummy any time she felt like a snack..... I LOVE dogs so much and maybe that makes it a little tougher for me, I have found if you treat a dog ( like you say ) with respect, love and compassion, they will lay their lives down for you ( not that I'd want that, but you get my drift) their love and devotion is unconditional ( yes even cats.... they love us too, but it seems a little different with them, I have always felt like 'staff' when it comes to a cat LOL), and yes Danny you are right no matter how hard I tried I could not match or return the amount of love I received from Rosie, as hard as I tried, and maybe that is why this stings so much........ as mentioned , she was the absolute love of my life......and yes, I will get 'past' this but never get 'over' her...... they sure have a way with us humans....................... thanks again for the kind and compassionate words........ it sure helps....
  4. THANKS Maru................. yeah it is a bit raw right now, and we knew it was coming, I thought we had prepared ourselves............................ I guess not so much.............. I know it will get a bit easier everyday, but my thing is, that they know they don't feel right but don't know why........ it's the not knowing why................. and maybe in retrospect that may be an ok thing, as I'm sure some folks who have terminal illnesses would rather not know sometimes..... sure is a difficult thing to understand......
  5. OUTSTANDING progress David, I'm really lovin this one ........................ can't wait for MORE
  6. If she ever gets pissy about taking it, as Murphy did near the end, I used to stick in a little gob of peanut butter, THAT did the trick, she loved PB !
  7. Make sure you keep up with that, my last Beagle had that damn disease and the doc said she would go about 2 years, and it was 2 years almost to the day, Cushings is not a fun thing.... you have my deepest sympathies and give your pup a hug and a kiss from me and the one I lost from Crushings, my Beagle Murphy....
  8. Wolf Ernie , Scott, Ryan, Carl, Harv and all the rest of you guys..............MANY thanks for the condolences and kind thoughts and the little stories of your furry friends............. how do these little animals get so ingrained in our lives? I have to say that there is NO complaints here, just extreme sadness, poor little mite was diagnosed with terminal cancer in December last year....they gave her 4 to 6 weeks... well 6 months on... we took her in for a check up a month or so ago, and the doc said her blood count had dramatically improved, and she could go another 6 months ! I'd like to think it was the dedicated care and love we were giving her, anyway in the end here, they think she may have had a small stroke which contributed to a few things going awry, her mobility was suddenly getting difficult, and her eyesight went down really fast..... she was hurting and not having any more fun, so it was quality vs quantity, so yesterday we had to make the decision, it was very quiet and soothing..................... damn I'm having a bit of a melt down here................... she isn't hurting any more, and my morning routine has changed dramatically, and last night I could have sworn I hear her snoring beside my bed where she slept......................and yeah, not sure we will get another one any time soon.................just too damn hard to let them go................ I DO love the dogs though................... she was the love of my life and VERY special................ I miss her
  9. Thanks you guys, this is the second one we have lost, but she was not having a good time, and was hurting, the doc figured she may have had a stroke a couple days ago...... it was and wasn't a tough decision, I told her ( the dog ) that I was doing the best I could for her, and didn't want her to suffer....... she went in my arms as I told her I loved her, and she was always a good dog.... and she was..... she was a throw away, until my mom took her in about 12 years ago, when mom could not care for her I took her, and I was MORE than happy to do so.... she moved in here like it was only natural....................................... ................................... so an hour or so ago, Cathy had to go to town ( we live 6 miles out), she is driving along in a line of 5 or 6 vehicles, and we live alongside a big lake, and she phoned me in a bit of a tizzy............. she said as she was driving by the lake a HUGE Osprey flew right in front of her truck, between her and the guy in front of her, just above the hood level of her truck, right if front of her........ did this for about 30 seconds or so, so she rolled her window down and said" Good bye Rosie", and no sooner had she done that and the bird flew up and was gone..................................was Rose telling Cathy it was ok, and she will be fine? Nearly brought Cathy to tears...... she was really excited to tell me......................... makes one wonder......................... thanks for the kind words and thoughts guys, I know we are not the first or the last, but it is nice to have an 'ear' as they say..................not a great day in our house today.............................
  10. Nice........................................ Cold Hearted BASTARDS ! They just don't give a damn about 'people', just the bottom line.................. how did we get here?? Where is the compassion gone?
  11. Thanks Martin, devastating loss in our little world..... she went in my arms, as I was telling her she was a good girl, and we loved her dearly............... Cathy and I are a mess................. damn dogs anyway.................
  12. I lost my Beagle this morning................... my best friend.................................................... I'm crushed...................
