    Cola

    We brought Cola home 13 years ago. He was a very lively little Lab/Collie cross male pup. Dominant nature and VERY intelligent with it. As a Family we were a bit clueless about having a pet dog. He was really meant to be our youngest son, Andrew's pet.  It took a lot of of...

    Dogs are great. They love you always.

    They don't care if you're not perfect because you're perfect to them.

    Sebastian, you little bastard.

    It's been almost 10 years since you passed but I still miss you. You stood by me for 18 years. I could never own another dog again.

    I Miss My Boy, Shadow Soooo Much

    I'm very sad to say that Shadow, my best friend ever, and I mean EVER, had to be put to sleep yesterday morning (July 11, 2010).  Shadow was almost 15 years old, and was a Schipperke mix -- a very handsome fella.  I was lucky to have had him since he was a puppy.  ...

    I wish I had a dog. I live alone though

    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...

    One of the saddest mornings of my life.

    A stray pup was ran over by a truck Sunday evening. The poor soul survived but his cries told the story of his immense pain. We were finally able to rescue him yesterday. But the vet told us that he'd have to be put down. His spine was broken and there was heavy internal...

    Our beloved Pooka is gone.

    She was 18 and not really a dog - she was smarter than most of my college students - she just wore a dog suit.... The house is empty yet she is still everywhere! Her hair, her toys, her many beds.... I can't even think about a new dog. To me that is like losing a child and...

    I had to put my dog down a few days ago.

    He was almost 17 and my earliest memory was picking him up from a farm and now he's gone and I'm glad it was peaceful and he's not in pain anymore but I miss him. The house feels to empty and I miss the sound of him running up the stairs to wake me up every morning. People...

    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...

    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 :(

    She was my best friend and sister, who was always there for me through my tough times, loved me unconditionally and taught me so much about kindness and forgiveness. No dog can replace you, you were my number one and only one.

    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...

    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.

    Gracie may you rest in peace.

    You were the best friend anybody could ask for. You made me smile when I wanted to cry, you made me laugh when I was angry or frustrated, you comforted me when I was sad. It just won't be the same without you

    she was on medication for arthritis and dementia but took a turn for the worst and the vet said she'd had a stroke so had no quality of life,so it had to be done for her sake,so even though it was the right thing it was still heartbreaking and all the family miss her 😞

    I lately thinking about Sandy,

    my dog. I miss her so much. I want to have her beside me. I'm lonely without her. But my parents won't allow me to keep her. They rather see me depressed and lonely at home than having her here. I just want a friend. That's all. I have no one here.
