    I know what you are going through, loosing a 'best' friend is hard to do. We have gone through this several times over the years. My both of our friends have lots of funwhere ever they are at.

    I'm sorry for your loss, dogs just don't live long enough. I think we grow more attached to them then most people. Remember the good times for I'm sure there were many. Bud

    Really sorry to hear this. Nothing like a good dog. I hope the many memories you have will help ease his passing.

    And the guy behind the gun never misses.

    We lost our lab last summer to a mama moose. Losing a dog is tough. I cannot imagine burying a child.

    Default Karma or coincidence

    Skybust, do you believe in Karma? Signs from another place? Coincidence? A friend, 3CBRS, sent me a note today of a dog up for adoption in ANC. And then I go back through the archives and find your post. Higher power perhaps?
    He is a 4 year old black lab and in the photo looks to be a handsome boy. Go check him out. Take a look. What could it hurt? You might need a friend, and he might need one too.
    Good luck to you,
    ARR

    Truely sorry for your loss, and I feel your pain. My wife found out 2 days ago that her dog of 11 years has cancer. That dog was her Therapy when she went thru breast cancer 7 years ago. They are in-separable. Its just like a child. Tearing her up bad which in turn tears me up. All we can do is cherish what time is left and watch closely for signs of suffering. I really am sad for you Skybust. Cherish the past! Might sound silly to some, but I lost my dog of 16 years a few Holiday Seasons ago. I had her creamated, placed the ashed in an urn and place it inside my Shrunk (German Wall Unit Entertainment Center) and I talk to her and look at her pics once in a while. I never replaced her! Don't think I ever could.
