hi,

just wanted to share my grief with other Dog lovers.  My dog, my little
buddy, Jake,  was an 8 year old blue merle aussie and he died of liver
failure yesterday.

I just miss him.

thanks

Lyle you have my sincerest condolences. The loss of a four legged family
member is very difficult. I'm coming up on one year after the loss of my old
guy King, who was barely 10. I miss him still. Grieve well, as they are
worth every tear. Thinking of all the good and the funny times helps.

        Hi Lyle,
            I'm sorry to hear about  Jake. It's very hard to lose a friend
and its takes a while for the grief to lessen.

Hi Lyle.

Sorry to hear about Jake, in my mind losing your dog or cat is no different
to losing a loved human friend or relative.
I know what your feeling and hope some of the grief passes soon for you

Kim

Jake was lucky to be with a friend like you. He was the kind of dog to make
the best of life and bless you with great times and fantastic memories. I
know how you must feel.

Remember the moments,
Matt

Thanks to all for your kind words.  Yes, it does feel like losing a family
member, and yet it feels so different.  I am trying to think of what a great
dog he was and remember him fondly instead of sadly.

Give your dogs a nice belly scratch for me.

Lyle, my heart goes out to you.  Almost exactly two years ago, I lost my
beloved "Simon" to a horrible and extremely unusual cancer that I tried to
treat with the help of a number of specialists.  He never suffered until
close to the very end, and was never in pain.  I was in pain for the entire
seven months.

I have recounted this story here before, but it bears repeating.  When I had
to end things for him--his little face was literally falling apart and he
seemed to be having some distress--after the doctor gave him that final shot
to end things, I asked her if she had enough left for me.

I waited a few weeks, visited some friends' dogs, then started going to the
local SPCA a few times a week, and met some great dogs there, even helped
place a few with others.  Then one day, I stopped to take a look and there
he was:  a dog who could be Simon's brother, or at least cousin, and who
needed a home because he had lived at one of these places where a good
intentioned person just has too many animals.  We named him "Stuart" and he
is with me now in one of "Simon's" favorite places, where he went with me
many times, Santa Fe, New Mexico. I think he likes to travel as much if not
more than "Simon" did.

What I am suggesting is obviously that you go get another dog.  Think of it:
how many close friends from childhood, or high school or whatever have just
drifted away from you?  Perhaps even if you tried to maintain the
friendship.  How manv people have you thought you loved and they turned out
to be intolerable bipolar narcissistic jerks?

Get it?

Best wishes for you and your new dog. He is waiting for you somewhere now.

A. Brain

So sorry for your loss Lyle. It's been 5 years now that Tzimmes, our 12
yr blue merle aussie x left us due to cancer. I miss her so much. At
least now I only think about her every week instead of every day.

There is another dog in some shelter somewhere that wants to help you
with the pain. Jessie is doing her best for me.

We lost our 13 year Beagle "Madison" to cancer on 5-6-02. We got "Hazel", a
7 week old Beagle pup, on 5-10-02. Nothing like a puppy to help heal a
broken heart.
