Rainbow Bridge

I had the duty of putting me 7 year old pup to sleep today. Man does it hurt some where deep inside. I had him from age 4 weeks and bottle fed until 7 years we dealt with both knee surgeries and Wobblers but intestinal mass took him from me. I am very sad as I wanted more time AND ANGRY CUZ i DIDN'T GET IT BUT THIS PUP AND i HAD A BOND THAT PEOPLE COULD SEE AND FEEL. I will miss him for the rest of my life I am sure but may be able to find another Dobie someday. I hope so. And although none may take his place I will love and care for any pup I ever have. Some people don't understand this but that is their loss.

My thoughts are with you my Dobe friend.
Lost my Mafia 3 years ago......
Grief....very strong ...heart felt emotion...it is like a wave....you can be OK at one moment and then out of nowhere here comes that sorrow again..........
you never get over your pup's loss ......you just get thru it.......alot of us have been thru this....and it sucks.....so stay in touch with all of us......and try to let those emotions out of your body ........cry....scream....hammer away at something......but try to not let those emotions bottle up inside you....let them out....then in time.......you will be ready for your next adventure.......and again ..real sorry for your loss.....sounds like your were a great Dobe parent.....God Bless you for that.......

Sorry to hear this news burk -- yep your right -- Some people don't understand this but that is their loss.

I agree - the only ones that do get it are the Dobie People - then everybody's heart hurts - memories of our past Dogs never go away .

Thoughts and prayers to you
