    I am so sorry for your loss Don. :(
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    I am sorry Don! Such a pretty dog and Valley Fever can be brutal. :(

    Not the same but I had to give my Rottie of 10 years up earlier this year when we moved and I still think about him every day.

    Sorry to hear about your loss
  • Oh God Don...I'm so sorry to hear this news. When we put our dog down this past summer I frikkin lost it. And in turn my sons were even worse after seeing me in complete disarray. They had never witnessed their father an emotional wreck like that and in that moment trying to now fully understand the true concept of death. It was horrifying to see my boys start to question mortality and such. Thank God for my wife, she just knows how to make things change instantly without doing much at all. While I was trying to be all philasophical and what not in my explanations to my boys she says.. "Why dont you guys go play some video games?" My kids, like 99% of them all today are glued to their xbox and playstations everyday and I dont pay much attention to that crap at all..So I said yeah, cmon lets go play some video games. Next thing ya know 6 hours go by and I have a damn microphone strapped to my head like Brittany Spears talking shit to 12 year olds in Japan and my kids were having a blast :lol::lol::lol: I guess what I am saying is..Go play some damn video games! Grab your kids, lay on the floor with a few pillows and as much junk food you guys can find and enjoy what ya got to the fullest, and go shoot some zombies! Before ya know it this will be behind you and your kids will be as happy as they ever have been. Don't let them see Daddy sad, and since they probably already have..Let them see Dad bounce back like the Champion he is. :)

    Sorry to hear about your loss Don. I lost my golden retriever Jake last August after 13 yrs and was one of the hardest things I dealt with. As times passes it gets better and I'm sure you know that. Best wishes for you and your family :)

    I am gald he is in his around his favorite spot. The loss of a pet is a hard one. Being a pet owner has so many rewards but it is hard when the end comes.

    I am so sorry for you & your family, Don. I've lost dogs both young & old, and know how devastating it feels. Good of you to take him to a favorite spot.
    I win.

    Thank you all for all the great words I been reading. It actualy brought a few more tears to my eyes feeling the love.

    It was the right decision. That dont make it any easier. Funny I almost feel he knew some thing was about to happen.

    He was such a dope and baby he would never go any where by himself. He was so afraid of the stairs. We actualy had to take him out back and sit with him while he did his business. every morning 5;30 or 6 am

    The morning of his horrible seizures I was sitting on the cooler we have out there so we can sit with him he came up to me as he did every morning to get his daily back scratching. Well that morning it was longer than usual and he came back around for another scratching. He then turned gave me a kiss and went on his way.

    Thats what my last memories are of him. Im very grateful for that. Because after we let him in I went back up stairs to lay down and an hour latter my wife was screaming for me to help him.

    I realy am very grateful for all the comments and the feeling that you all are here for my family and me. Ive said before I have no family other than me and my wife and kids so to have all of you makes it a lot easier.

    I may have not meet all of you but I feel I know most of you and I sure hope to one day meet you all. See this is why Pearl Jam cant go out on us. They bring the world togeather. It may sound Corney. But with out them I wouldn't of known you guys ;)

    Thank you all and lots of love back at you and your families. :D
