Sorry about your loss; they are family.  He's living the life now in pup heaven, no more hurting, chasing some serious birds.

Sorry. It hurts like a SOB... :'(
very sorry for what your going through, I had to put my girl down a year and half ago.  Still hurts sometimes.  The last day with her I poured her a beer and we sat in the front yard and had a drink.  Took her in and buried her in our back yard, we will have our time together again.  So will you and your pup!  Hang in there, and let it out.  Sorry for your loss .

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been
especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of
our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and
our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or
maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times
gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very
special, someone who was left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the
distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group,
flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special
friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain
upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting
eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge
together...
IMPEACH TRUMP!!

Some times doing the right thing really hurts. I'm sure he is at peace . Relish in the memories .....no doubt you gave him a great life.
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !

Sorry to hear deerhunter!

I know too how it feels.  Put my 110lb yellow lab of 11 years down a couple months ago.  Buried him in the Back yard too.  Really sad! 

Take care!

Tough.  I've only had one dog to be put down at old age.  Very hard to do.

I've got three hunting dogs right now that are between 5 months and 2 years.  It's going to be a rough time when all three of them get there  :'(

No matter how a good dog passes, after time it is easier to remember all the good moments.  That worst part about dog ownership is their life expectancy

It never gets easier, and I am sympathetic for your loss.  I've had the vet put down 2 of my labs, both times in my arms - that ache hurts something fierce.  I encourage you to get another, he won't replace Trigger, but life with a dog is better than life without.  I have a little dropkick dog who turns 10 Saturday, and I can see the future; hoping for a few more good years.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Losing a good dog is as hard as losing any other family member! I'm sorry for your loss! :(

I agree that you should find another dog to enjoy and share your life with!  :)
