Good-Bye Old Fat Dog

I had our old dog put down today. He was 11 yrs old and his health had been going down hill rapidly. He was a funny old dog and kept us both company and gave us unconditional love even when we didn't deserve it!! I just couldn't see him hurting and not being able to breathe. I wanted him to go and see God while he could still get a little enjoyment out of his life. He would perk up for a little while and then he'd sleep for days and cry when he tried to walk.

This is DH and Shaggy on the couch. I don't know which one needs a nap more??

This was his favorite place. On a stool in front of a window where he could look out and bark at anyone that dared to walk by!! He had to be lifted on and off of the stool lately, but he still loved it there!!

And sound asleep on a pillow on the couch. Good-bye by dear, dear friend. I hope that you can run and play now and are really happy!! We'll always love and remember you.
:( Carla

I'm so sorry that you have lost your buddy. It's so hard to choose when to let them go.
