Tough day.
My little dog Brownie will be in dog heaven this afternoon.
She's 14- blind, deaf, no teeth to speak of. She's now lost control of her natural processes. She rarely eats and when she does, she can't keep it down.
My 16 year old boy is so brave. He's volunteered to go with me and comfort her during the process. My 14 year old daughter is devasted.
Say a prayer and raise a glass to Brownie; play her a tune- a good dog that lived life well.

Sorry to hear about your Brownie, goldtopper. Losing a well loved pet is a heartbreaking experience for sure. I will say that prayer - for you and your family as well as for Brownie. And I'm sending up some thoughts to my Lola ... letting her know she has a new friend on her way. Take care.

Oh, man.

Very sorry to here of this. I'm a dog person myself. My Jack Russell terrier is sitting on the couch looking at me as I post. When her time comes one day its going to be a very bad day for me. One of the worst, actually.

My heart goes out to you, with a prayer.

I keep fish for a hobby and I sometimes see people refer to their fish as "Pets". To me the difference between a fish and a pet is that when you lose the fish you get annoyed when you lose the Pet it's a devastating loss. Unfortunately their lifespans are just not as long as ours so all pet owners have to go through this.

This dog lover, like any true dog lover here, knows the pain you're feeling right now.

I'm very sorry for your loss...

Tears rolling down my face as I read this, I took Bob outside brushed him gently and said a prayer for Brownie. She'll be fine:



My heart breaks for ya'll, you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers

A Parting Prayer

Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge.

Assign her to a place of honor,
for she has been a faithful servant
and has always done her best to please me.

Bless the hands that send her to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing her from pain and suffering.

Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor her
by sharing those memories with others.

Let her remember me as well
and let her know that I will always love her.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring me home.

Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the time we've had together.

And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now.

Amen

Thanks for all of the kind words my friends.
I was so proud of my son, who stayed with Brownie and I to the end. It was tough on him and he was pretty broken up- but he knows she's in a better place, sped by the prayers of fine folks like all of you!

GT--- you were a friend and gave the best life a dog could have, your family will carry on that tradition. I've been in your shoes, it was horrible even though I knew it was coming. Remember the gift you were given. Peace.

I'm so very sorry for the loss of your Brownie. It's incredibly brave of your son to stay with you and Brownie to the end. You've done a wonderful job of parenting.

Peace and comfort to you and yours. The passing of an animal companion is almost harder than the passing of a human conpanion because of the unconditional love they give. Y'all will be in my thoughts and prayers. BTW, FWIW, Your son is now a man in my eyes.

When you get to the end of your road, she'll be there to help you find your way to where we all ultimately go. She's just going on ahead, like a good scout to make sure it's nice.
