BGLEMIN...so sorry for your loss. My girl Abby's memorial is posted right before Zeke's. I think of her every day and find myself calling her name sometimes with my new girl Cedar. I hope you find some peace in the days ahead that you will hunt with Zeke again when you make that journey yourself. He will be waiting there for you, in the meantime Abbey will will have fun playing with a new buddy...healthy, young and free of pain, the way it should be.
Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Mike

BD1 - Thank you for your thoughts, I too believe that your girl Abbey and Zeke have their mouths full of feathers!

My lab Echo passed today 2/15/16 at 11:30 am.  She was 15 years, 6 months, 13 days old.  She had a full life.  Got to go many places and see many things.  Nearly everywhere I went she was with me.  She had a passion for life and fought the effects of getting old very hard.  We finally got to a hurdle today that I couldn’t help her get over.  So I had to help her onto the next journey .  She went peacefully in my arms looking into my eyes.  I will join her one day on the other side. 
  Her sidekick Bella is confused right now.  She’s looking for her mama dog.  That will pass.  I have laid out Echo’s collar for her in hopes that it helps her understand that Echo is not coming back.
  Anyway, it isn’t often I have tears in my eyes, Today I do.  She’s always got a place in my heart.  I’m including a set of photos as a celebration of life for my sweet old girl.  If you knew her please enjoy them…

Old gal is in doggie heaven for sure. Probably hobbling around with a renewed spring in her step,  chasing ducks that never dive down, taking naps under the first warm morning rays. Tell me when buddy and I've got a beer in mind.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I like to believe all those aches and pains are instantly healed. You are right when you say you will meet again. I am sure my Abbey was right there waiting for her on the other side.
Take care,
Mike BD1

Oh Tim I am so sorry!! She was such an awesome sweetheart. I'm sure Bella has taken a lot of personality from her, she will live on through her, and you will have to get Bella a little pup pal now! Sorry for your loss, it's so sad losing fur-babies :'(

Been meaning to post this.

I had to let my chocolate lab go to the rainbow bridge.  :'(

RIP DUKE 4/27/2004-10/28/2017

He helped raise our kids, he was our 1st kid! Best damn duck hunting dog I have ever had, refused to give up!

I bought him in June 2004 for $500 from a local breeder. He was a real go getter! loved camping, hitting the water, and retrieves. Gosh I still miss the old days with him. He was like my son to me. He loved hunting, when I turned the truck off in the morning for those duck hunts, to get ready to hunt, he used to whine in the truck probably saying lets go! Lets go! When he got older his whining stopped. The last 2 years he really slowed down.  He never whined or barked anymore. He had a spleen tumor and he was just too old to do surgery and possibly too much blood loss. He just looked at me and I knew. I am so glad that he was able to be with our kids and hunt. He was something special to our family.

Well, I helped my lab cross over today.  She was a little over 7 years old.  She was ready.  For me to try to extend her time any more would be selfish for me because her quality of life at this point would not improve going forward.

  I got her at 7 weeks old.  When she was 1.5 years old she went to Saskatchewan with me and had the experience of a lifetime hunting geese.  Through her life she retrieved all 3 species of grouse, pheasant, chukar, quail, ducks and geese.  She traveled about everywhere I went.  She became so in tune with what I wanted a lot of the times I could get her to do what I wanted in the field with just a look. 

  Anyway, here’s what happened.  14 months ago she had a complete tumor blockage between her large and small intestine.  I decided to go ahead with the surgery based on her age and physical condition.  When the surgeon got in there it was apparent that cancer was the cause.  He took out about 20% of her intestine and had samples tested to find out what kind of cancer it was.  It was an aggressive form.  After consulting with the dog oncologist we decided to fight it.  The cancer finally became immune to the chemo treatments and got to her.  We had went through 4 different forms of chemo.  I was able to buy her 14 months of good health though.  Today it became apparent that her quality of life was not going to be there going forward and would continue to decline so I made the call.  She will be missed.  She has gone the way of my previous labs: Kit, Cinder, Sassy, Missy, and Echo.  My house is missing someone tonight… 

This was her last hunt in January.  For 7 years old she had a full life.
