    My dog died last Saturday night.

    She was 8.5 years old but I expected her to live a few more years. I only got her 3 years ago. The couple that owned her moved into a small apartment and she being a rottie cross weighed in at 120 lbs. Much to big for an apartment. I was apprehensive about getting a rottie. But...

    My dog is gone... I feel

    so empty. Every Time I try not to think about it, I think. So many things I had taught him in 10 years... But I'm sure I learnt more. I have so much on my mind that if I write down here I would write a book. I can't do anything without thinking about him. The worst thing that...

    Paw Prints On The Heart......

      I miss you terribly my sweet baby.  Yes you with the funky fur!   You were never my pet and you always knew that.  You were my furry child and my best friend.  I miss playing ball with you, even if you didn't ever want to stop.  We got through your severe ball fixation...

    It's been over a year

    since I last saw my Fluffy. He was the best dog ever. We had him since a puppy and lasted with him over 7 years and a half. You could talk to him and he would sit there and actually listen to you. I remember when I would be sad he would be all up on me trying to lick my face to...

    My father had to put down my dog this morning.

    I wasn't able to be there, because I was on vacation, she had cancer. She was 6 years old, and a Great Pyrenees. I remember so many great things about her, she was an outside dog, she protected our cattle. So when I was little, anytime I for mad at anyone, I'd go outside...

    and I'm away from home for 8 to 11 hours at a time so I wouldn't want my dog to be alone that much. I just love dogs so much (all animals really). I used to have a Maltese named Prince but lost him due to my divorce. It super sucked. This may sound silly, but I cried when I...

    Duke, my fawn and black-masked boxer,

    was MY rescue. My soon to be ex-husband was using him as a way for him to not move forward. I had to make the decision for Duke to not be separated from Buster. I'm sure Duke is well-cared for...but I miss his presence very much.

    We had to give her to a adoption place that was no-kill. But it broke my heart to see her in the adoption center. I've been crying non-stop because of my dog. I love her and miss her. Can someone help me cheer me up please? :(

    I Gave My Dog Away :(

    I recently gave my dog back to the humane society we got it from. I have been crying nonstop for a week. He had some problems that we got a trainer for, but nothing worked. I feel horrible. Anyone else had to give their dog away? I feel so sad and alone :(
