    I'm so sorry to read this Ron. 19 years is an amazingly long time. My condolences to you and your family for the loss of your little gal.

    Sorry to hear about this. My family just got a new puppy a month ago, and I can’t imagine how upset I will be when it’s her time to go — especially if she is with us for 19 years! Losing a dog is just as hard as losing a human relative.

    But 19 years is a good run, I’m sure your dog had a great life and struck the dog lottery.

    Aw what a sad day - sorry @CigBurn :(

    Lily looks like she was a smart girl, so to have her 19 years is/was a wonderful thing I'm sure.

    Sad for the loss of Lily. I have an older dog Penny and this brought tears to my eyes.

    Ron,

    I am sorry for the loss, really there's little like it.

    I really can't imagine 19 years...most of the dogs I've had have been large and thus lived nowhere near that long.

    What a pretty girl! So sorry man! My dogs are one of the greatest joys in my life. That's tough. Sending good vibes and thoughts your way.

    Sorry to hear that, it’s never an easy decision to make and I am sure that after 19 years it’s going to leave a big hole.
    She had a good life.

    I'm so sorry for you. My best little friend "Buddy" died in April this year and I don't feel I will ever get over the heartache of losing him.

    I am so sorry.

    My Dolce had a growth removed from her right front leg last year. She has another larger one on her center chest. She sleeps more than she used.

    She is almost like one of our children. This post hits home. So sad.

    I’m sorry for your loss.
    Letting them go is so heart-wrenching.
    You both did your respective jobs for 19 years, she your adoring pet, you her loving friend.
