    So sorry to hear this Anthony.

    I know what you are going through, have experienced it many times myself. :(

    Dogs are so perfect and free of anything bad that it makes their passing so much more painful.

    Sorry to hear of his passing. They are such dear friends who love us unconditionally. They teach us a lot.

    Very sorry to hear this mate.

    Im sure you are in a world of pain. I certainly would be.

    Try and focus on all the good times you had together and the fact that you had each other.

    Hope this helps.

    @Antstrat So, so sorry for your loss. My dogs mean the world to me so I know exactly how you feel. My Dixie sends her love & kisses.

    If you can, get a puppy. Soon. It'll help TREMENDOUSLY. Ask me how I know. Dixie is that puppy and she probably saved my life, TBH.

    Yea it is. This last time, I cried almost as hard as I did when my daughter passed away. I had that dog from birth until she was 12 yrs old and one day she got sick and there was nothing I or the vet could do. And so she basically died in my arms while I sat there feeling so helpless. It's the worst feeling ever. I spent the final 24 hours loving my dog and making sure she knew how much she was loved. I laid on the floor with her and held her and petted her and fed her all sorts of meat.

    I still have issues to this day with everything that happened. It all happened so quickly and I was so helpless. It's not anything I ever want to go through again. Ever. :( Dixie, the dog I posted above, is the puppy I got 2 weeks later. That was the first time I didn't have at least 1 dog in the last 30 years. So it didn't last long. It just didn't feel right coming home and not being met at the door, etc...

    Thank God I found Dixie. She's the only AKC registered dog I've ever had and she's, by far, the best dog I've ever had. She incredible. I'm so, so thankful I found her.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your best friend. I feel your pain as we lost our little girl a few months ago. It’s so hard but we have our memories of our pals. I wouldn’t trade that for even a little easing of the pain of loss. Hang in there.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Breaks my heart. Our Golden is 14 years and 8 months. She can barely see or hear, but still acts like a puppy at times. I dread the day that is coming. I can't imagine.

    condolences @Antstrat . We miss our girl Georgia. We got her from a rescue network out of Georgia hence her name. She was the sweetest girl who always made our lives seem better with her unconditional love. She died last year at 15 years old. We still miss her. Here's a pic from her younger days.

    My condolences Ant.

    Kira is 11 and really showing her age lately. She has been my constant companion for 10 of those years (I take her to work every day) and my life has been so much better for it. She makes me think about the immensity that people who don't have a dog companion miss.

    I suppose there must be some reason why their life is so much shorter than ours, but I don't like it, don't like it one bit.

    So Sorry. I, too, actually cried more when Big Yellow Dog and Mr. Bo Jangles died than when my parents died. Not that I didn't love my parents with all my heart and soul. I just understood that by the time they passed, it was a blessing in many ways and I had at least three weeks to mentally prepare for mom and about three years to mentally prepare for dad. But with Big Yellow and Bo, it was somehow different. And I still tear up when I think about them. They were my first two dogs and I was 32 when I got the first one. My best friends and camping buddies for 14 years. We were a pack.

    RIP George Patton. Very sorry to hear this. I’ve lost a few and it’s been the worst pain I have experienced to date. My friend lost his son and also several dogs and he says the pain cuts equally deep in both cases.

    Dogs are the absolute best thing ever.

    There is a woman on Etsy that makes miniature dogs based on photos. A friend had two of ours done and I literally cried like a little baby when I first saw it. Really a nice little reminder to glance over at or sit by and reminisce… https://instagram.com/kericbk?utm_medium=copy_link
