So sorry for your loss. It is hard to let go of such faithful companions.

So sorry. I had to let my beloved Skye Terrier Missy go two days ago, a month before her 15th birthday. I am crying for you as well as me. The only thing that makes the pain worthwhile is the memory of the joy.

They are family members and they will always be cherished in our memories. But there is always another future family member waiting for a good home. After 6 months, Cathy brought home a new orange kitten to replace my faithful old lap cat and he is a chip off the old block. Time and a new companion will heal. Loren

So sorry to hear of this, Sandra, and he looks like a wonderful dog, irreplaceable. Many years with a dog is hard to get over.

Sorry for your loss. We all know how much we love our animal companions. One of the main reasons we decided to buy a trailer was to be able to bring Murphy-the-Dog with us. So I guess we should really think of the trailer as a large dog house on wheels, that happens to hold a couple of humans to take care of the dog.

It is a true shame that our canine companions do not have a longer lifespan. It is so tough when they leave us, and it takes a long time to get past the mourning. When I lose my 11 year old mutt who was a stray puppy that showed up in my back yard, at least I will be able to take solace in that we saved her life, gave her a good life, and that she was a very happy and well cared for dog. You have my condolences, Sandra.

Losing a friend is always really hard. I have three who accompany me - I'm their driver and cook and travel planner - kind of an all around personal assistant, is how they view me. If someone has to sleep on the floor, it's me, and I only get to taste the chow before they get it. I would be very lonely without them, and my condolences on your loss. They sure leave a big hole in your heart when they go.
