R I P Oreo..she was a beautiful fur baby. May God Bless you and your family in this difficult time. Our pets are so much more than pets, they are family members, and I know you and your family are very sad.

I have to express my condolences, I know this is very tough

What caught my eye, and made my heart skip a beat was that last Sunday, my own Oreo crossed over Rainbow bridge as well.

Next Trip: September 25, 2014!

Oh my, your Oreo has one of the sweetest faces I've ever seen on a pup! She is beautiful! I am so sorry for your loss. R.I.P. Oreo. Sending hugs to you and your family.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. We have been through this before with other dogs, but this one hurts more than the others. It is so strange and disquieting to come home to an empty house after having had a designated greeter for 14+ years.

Your baby, Oreo, was a very pretty girl! So sorry for your loss. We all know it is inevitable, but it just hurts so darn much! Our "old girl", Winnie, a golden, just turned 12, and we can see the writing on the wall. Makes me cry to think about it. We can only take solace in the fact that our furbabies were well loved, well taken care of members of the family, and in how much happiness they brought us. Hugs.

She has been suffering from kidney failure for a few months now and lost 3 lbs. off of her already skinny 20 lb. body. She became so picky about food we just about went crazy trying to find something she would eat. That along with her incontinence, that kept her in diapers really reduced the quality of her life. But this morning was the final straw. Overnight she developed ataxia to the point where she could barely stand. It was heartbreaking to see her try to walk, only to stumble and fall over and over again.
The vet said if she were younger and in otherwise good health he would treat the ataxia, but in her frail condition we just couldnt put her through any more. Even though we know we did the right thing, it is still heartbreaking.
After having has a dog almost nonstop since 1978, I think we are going to take a break for a while. We need a breather.
Rest in Peace old girl, you were the best dog ever, and we will always love you.

I really want to post a photo of her, but the site won't let me for some reason. If I can figure it out, I will edit the post later

ETA: Picture:

What a cutie, I am sorry for your loss and can truly understand how hard it is having had to do this myself twice. People who do not own pets do not understand that they are family memebers just like anyone else.

I am so sorry!

I traveled that sad road with Fergie last summer. I have no advice; it will take some time for your heart to heal.
