    We had her for ten years. I guess she had some kind of heart attack, then a stroke. She was still breathing after a seizure that didn't last more than ten seconds, but she had lost all control of her body.

    Definitely a bad way to end a bad summer. :(

    Sorry to hear that, man. Losing a family member is never easy.

    Just remember the good times.

    sorry about your loss...

  6. My wife works in Veterinary Internal Medicine and I hear so many stories of the horrible way people lose their pets. This just adds to that long list of incidents.

    I've never really lost a pet but have a few older animals and dread the day that happens.

    Again, sorry for your loss. :(

  11. Sorry for your loss. Second saddest day of my life (behind my father dying) was my 15 year old shephard/husky mix Nickie died.

    I feel your pain.

    Sorry to hear that, I hate it when people can't understand how attached to your pet you can become. My dog's ten, and I'm dreading his death....

    I sometimes feel losing animals is harder than losing people..

    But maybe Ijus don't like people. :meh:

    Sorry for your loss bro.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I absolutely abhor the thought of losing Blue, but at the same time I can not begin to tally the joy he has brought to me in the last eight years. I have, and will always have a dog in my life. Each of them have been special...

    Sorry for your loss my friend

    After a sufficient time I hope you'll consider opening your home to a young companion. You are obviously a GREAT pet parent and there are many animals in need of compassion and care!

    We just lost our kitty of 14 years and we have a Kelpie pushin' 13. It's hard.

    Take care!
