Default Today's the day........

Taking my Chocolate Lab to the vet for the last time this afternoon. She's 13 1/2 and it's time. Going to be a rough couple of days for me. Only dog left will be my work dog. Can't remember the last time I only had one dog.

She's been a great companion, and has had a wonderful life. Ya'll give your dogs a hug for me today.

Stay strong Brother. Easy to say, hard to do. I dread the day for my JRT. All you can do is make it easy on her and remember all the good times.

We just did this a couple of weeks ago ourselves.
It sucks and hurts.
The other night I found myself chanting her name like I used to do. When she was younger she'd come lick my face, lately she'd look at me and wag her tail.
I realized she wasn't there and teared up, wife looked at me and her were got glassy.

I still hurt.
Remember the good.

It doesn't matter how macho we think we are, but when it comes down to doing this we are like mash potatoes. We went thru this not long ago and each day I think of Dakota. He's on the mantel, but not the same. Sorry for your loss.
