I'm so sorry about Max. He must have been a very special dog to bring out the great deal of love you had for him. My heart broke a little reading your post.

I hope that when my cat's time comes that I am strong and kind enough to do what is best for her, like you did for Max. It had to be terribly hard for you.

I will say a prayer for you all.

Sorry to hear that Pete.

Pets become just as much part of the family as people do.

Hang in there.

I can definitely relate, Pete.

One of our cats, Brutus, got very sick on Dec 28th and passed away from acute pancreatitis on New Years Eve. It was awful & terrible. He passed away while they were trying to "fix" him & we were on our way to visit him. We miss him dearly.

Our thoughts are with you for sure.

New DISboards member & podcast listener here - had to stop by to say I'm so sorry for your loss. It's such a tough thing to go through since our pets are such a part of our families & lives.

I'm catching up on podcasts, and just heard the news. And I looked over at our Max, sleeping next to me as I had some DIS time. I'll give him a hug from you, Pete, when he wakes up from chasing that bunny.

A friend sent us this quote, to forward to my parents, when their retired racing greyhound Dodgie died. I thought it might bring some comfort:

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my
heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with
a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my
heart will be Dog, and I will become as generous and as loving as they
are."--Unknown

So sorry for your loss. Our cat family of 4 is now down to 1, still going strong at 17. His two brother died in the last 2 years but we're not getting any better at making these decisions -- it's still one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do, each and every time. I still miss his mother who died at the age of 12 -- some animals are like soul mates and we carry a little bit of them with us for the rest of our lives.

It takes a while but eventually you're just thankful for the time you shared together.

I'm so sorry, Pete! Losing furbabies is one of the hardest things ever; we lost our 15 year old lab several months ago, and I still miss her dearly. I'm glad you were with him at the end, though, and that he's gone on to the dog park in the sky to feel better forever.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear pet. There are few things in this world that are as genuine as the love from a pet. They make our lives whole.
