Dogs are truly more than just mans best friend, they are our children, companions, and deffinately members of the family. My prayers go out to You, your Family, and beloved Rusty. May he be playing in the snow of heaven! God Bless.

Wow. Pets are more than just animals some times. My dad's horse that he had for over 20 years starved himself to death and had to be put down about 6 months after my dad died. He grieved himself to death. He never lifted his head again after my dad's death. He lead our procession at the funeral and that was it. My brother tried to take care of him, but he wasn't having it.

God Bless

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. We had to have our childhood dog put to sleep on Christmas Eve many years ago. She was a 14 year old Dachshund and her kidneys failed. It made for a tough holiday to say the least. At least you know he is no longer suffering and that you did the right thing. I hope you have a Happy New Year and don't wait too long to let another dog into your life, they bring so much joy and unconditional love. Who among us couldn't use some of that?

So sorry you lost a member of your family. Have solace in knowing that you were there to comfort Rusty when it was his time to go, and he was able to fall asleep without pain. I am truly sorry for your loss.

He was bigger than he looked in the other pictures!

It's always hard to lose someone who's such a part of our lives, whether that someone has two legs or four. We lost our Chocolate Lab CoCo nearly three years ago due to old age - She was 13 years old - and our beloved 16 year old cat Agatha just last month. Aggie was failing for some time, having been blind for the last year of her life, but she was still capable of giving and receiving love - and of mooching for food! - right up until a couple of weeks before the end.

The decision to end a pet's suffering is one of the hardest for anyone to make but in the long run, in cases like this it's the right one. Rusty isn't suffering anymore; he's up in doggie heaven running and romping and having a good old time. And waiting for you to join him when that time comes.

So sorry for your loss. They are really like our kids you know... Sometimes they make us crazy, but we sure miss them when they are not around. My little guy "Spike" is 12 this year, in failing health also, going blind and having heart & liver problems. Not looking forward to losing him. Take comfort in your memories.
