know exactly how you feel, lost many of our companions over the years, and always said "never again" but we now have two cocker spaniels, "Elle" and "Lenny", a Lab who comes to work with me every day, "Wilf" and 3 cats, lining ourselves up for plenty future upset there again,

As the saying goes, "better to have loved and lost then to never have loved at all", just never feels that way at the time....

Chin up fella, try to think of all the good times...

You have my deepest sympathy

I feel your pain buddy, and I'm truly sorry for you.

we are a massive dog loving family, we have had them for 20+yrs and they are indeed part of the family, I even call my boys 'the kids'.

It never gets easier when they become ill.

If we have to make the decision to euthanize, we make a conscious decision and date, we have as many days as possible feeding with all there favourite treats and stuff they shouldn't have but love etc

then we have 2 days on the lash in the local, as ALL my dogs are regulars there,

we find it good to hang around with people who knew them, and listen to the stories of their experiences of getting humped by a rottie for the 1st time etc :crazy:

trust me, when 60kg of Rottweiler wants to shag you, when you have had 7 pints, their isn't a lot you can do, except become mentally scarred. lol
