Time for another ‘my dog is awesome’ thread

Ugh.  He's a mess.  Not moving.  Not eating.  Just made an appointment for tomorrow afternoon to say goodbye in our home.   I'm shattered.  

Our hearts ache with yours Sbbruin.  The last day spent with Zeke saw him getting his own smoked tenderloin, hugs, belly rubs, and constant reminders of just how thankful we both were for the joy he brought into our lives.  May your last moments spent with Crosby be filled with the memories you have shared together and knowing you have given him a great life and will one day be reunited with him.

Well that was just about the hardest thing I’ve ever done.  How is it that an animal buries itself so deeply into your heart and soul.  He was my best buddy in the world.  Not seeing him waiting in the window every night when pulled in the driveway will be tough.  But his time had come.  And doing it at home ma it better.  He will leave a massive hole in our hearts.  My kids have really known very little of life without him.  RIP, doggy.  You were the best.  And thanks surly.  Sharing the experience with others that have gone through it is a bit cathartic.

Sorry for your loss - it's clear to anyone who has read your posts that Crosby was just as lucky to have you as you were to have him, and you did right by him through the end.

Omg that face. What a sweet doggo. Sorry for your loss sb. Hang in there. He clearly had a great life.

Kia looking down on me from doggy heaven saying “look at the life Crosby lived. you never took me on a boat, you cheap fuck!”

Not trying to disrespect SB, but they got additional testing back and they found the algae toxins in the brown mat algae along the lake bottom. If you take your dog to the lake, don't. Nothing in the water column but possibly it is growing due to the mass zebra mussel die off/nutrients as the lake goes down. Be careful my fellow dog lovers.

It has been almost a year since we had to put our English bulldog down due to heart issues. We just started having discussions about getting another dog. Anyone have suggestions on where to get a doodle type dog or other low shedding type?

I walked into the dining room and saw this.  My boy made a little memorial to his dog, and his best friend.  Once I stopped crying, I gave him a hug.

Crosby and Chewy are wrestling as we speak. You'll see him again. And so will your boy.

Looks a lot like my boy.  Labs, man.  I vacuumed today, and as is typical, completely jugged the vacuum cleaner.  But for the last time.  And changed the air filter for air conditioner.  Something tells me we will all breathe easier without about 10 lbs of hair per week being deposited around the house.  But I’ll miss the tumbleweeds nevertheless.  Y’all love and play with your dogs.  Because they’re awesome.  They give and give and give and ask for nothing (except food and love).  We don’t deserve them..  They are better than we are.

Rupp is only a little under 3 , and this thread is already making me dread the day (mixed with early melancholy as I watch the time with my almost 16yo at home dwindle).

"Goodness will find the puppers.  It always has.  It will again."

In the meantime, here's Rupp derping in the weather and humping a snowman.PXL_20210215_163704546.thumb.jpg.a3e99e61d120bdeaee99c059003dd216.jpgIMG_20210111_114632_2.thumb.jpg.a5e180ee66f8d2f2a9785acdf3950f7e.jpg

Good boy, Crosby.

Kids and their bonds with pets are really special. If our house caught on fire and my 12-yo could only save either the dogs or his parents, my husband and I would be taking dirt naps.

So we have two dogs. A jack russell/morkie mix (11 years old and about 18 pounds) and a chihuahua/shitzu mix (3 years old and 8 pounds). We got them some new food. The older one LOVED it. Ate her entire bowl in seconds and went in to get the other bowl, must to the dismay of the younger dog. A little scrap ensued. In said scrap, the older dog somehow popped the eyeball out of the younger dog and the eyelid got stuck behind it. The wife and I freak out and haul ass to the nearest vet hospital. Vet says we have to have surgery and 99% of the time the dog loses vision in that eye. 600 dollars later we have his eye sewn shut and in a cone. Go to the vet today to have the stitches removed and the little man has vision in the eye. The vets at the clinic said they had never seen them retain vision. I’m so happy.
