Oh, Jenn, I'm so sorry!


Been there. Done that. Still, almost 20 years later I get choked up, looking at the pictures of my two beloved dogs. No to mention how feelings well up when I think about -T- who met with the same fate three years ago.

OH SWEET little dog! Terribly sorry, gosh....


Always hard to lose a pet, sorry for your family's loss. :(

16 1/2 years, what a great, long, happy life with your family!


i'm so sorry. :( at least he had a happy, long life with your family.

Busy Bee Suz

Oh, this is a tear jerker for me. The hardest part of having pets is saying goodbye. You did good.

Smalltown Me

One of the most difficult things we may ever have to do.


So sad. We had to say goodbye to our beagle Buster a few months ago. It was the right time too, but still, sad.


Aw, gosh. I'm sorry.

Such a tough thing. Hugs to all of you.


I went through this 5 weeks ago and know how heartbreaking it is. I am sorry for the loss of your sweet doggie and most loyal friend. You did the right and humane thing, as hard as it was. Sending you a big hug.


And THIS is why I can't get another dog.

RIP Buddy.


Oh, I am so sorry. Our little Hilda is getting more age related problems and each time the kids come home thay are so glad she is still here. I know I will be as sad as you when we can no longer keep her with us.


Oh i did that same thing last year around this time. sooooo hard. hug.


So, so sorry. I am experiencing the downward slide of our 14 yr old rescue and so not wanting to go there. Your family will be in my thoughts today. Remember all the love and fun he brought to your family.


So sad! But, of course, you did the right thing.


My sympathy Jenn. Such a hard thing to do for our furry family. I'm watching my 15 year old girl and hoping to be spared having to go through this again. But you know it's the last act of love we can perform for them. Hugs today.


It's always so sad to lose a pet. RIP Buddy.


So sorry about your pup.


I am so sorry. Those last few minutes are so full of sadness. Hugs to you and your family.


Oh dear, I'm so sorry. Love isn't always easy, though it must be really tough on DB---being so far away.

JCK (Motherscribe)

Oh Jenn, I'm so very sorry. My heart aches for you, and the picture of DB and Buddy brings tears. Buddy was so lucky to have you all as his family. Sending big hugs!!


So kind -- but still so sad.

I'm so sorry Jenn. Our pets become such a part of our family. I remember like it was yesterday having to make the same decision for my sweet Mindy and then having to make the phone call to Computer Dude and Engineering Guy. ((hugs to all of you))

I'm so sorry. It's awful to know when it's time. I wish they could live with us longer.


Heartbreaking. But you made the right choice. It doesn't mean you won't be crying in the shower for a month (yes, I did), but it does mean you can know your Buddy is at peace.


Oh, sweetheart. I saw this on FB, too, and felt so bad for you all.

Do we take consolation at a time like this? if so, I'd console you with the idea that going out as Buddy did--completely beloved and surrounded by family--is the ideal for all creatures. You gave him that.


I'm so sorry, Jen. That must have been so hard.

Oh man I'm so sorry! It really sucks :(

I'm so sorry, Jen.

Reluctant Blogger

So sorry. He was such a gorgeous dog. But thing of all the happiness he brought you all.
