One of the hardest things I've had to do
« on: July 29, 2015, 04:34:31 PM »
I had to put my best friend down today....13 years ago I picked the runt of the litter and he grew up to be a 130lb black lab....one of the biggest I have seen...he was the best family dog you could ask for, he always watched out for my kids and protected the family...its been sad to watch just a shell of my dog the last year...now he's not hurting anymore....rest in peace trigger...we will miss you




Here's the last picture my boys took with him yesterday

I'm sorry man.  It's tough losing a good dog.  Remember the good times.

I understand what you are going through.  I had to put my Lab down on Sunday.  11 and a half years.  Along with being my best buddy, she kept our family full by bringing plenty of ducks out of cold winter waters.  I feel your loss.

Sorry for your loss. I had to do the same thing several years ago with my German shorthair I had all through my youth.   :'( :'(
