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.
Yes, your kids will have fun at Uni and Epcot!
ALWAYS pee before riding the monorail!

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

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.
OMG!!! I'm not finished planning yet!!!

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.
