That one can just fuck right off for a bit.

32. Oh, and for icing on the proverbial cake...

I owe the vet hospital $60 still for today... and my wife owes her sister & BIL $100 for the euthanasia two weeks ago... oh the joys of being the "working poor"... gotta laugh, cause I'm all cried out at this point...

5. I am so, so, sorry for your loss.

But this is the pact we sign with every furry member of our families.

Knowing that makes NONE of the end easier.

Phoebe, Archie, Lilly, Buddy, Greyrat, Smokie, and my beloved feral Lucy who adopted me and brought me 6 feral kittens one afternoon.

I loved them all, and I believe they loved me as far as any cat would be able.

Chester will be my last cat. I am 62 this year and he is just now three. He will likely outlive me.

I have made provision for his care if that happens. That is part of this pact. He will never see the inside of a cage again.

I hope you can heal your heart soon.

Peace.

That's must be so hard to bear. We just lost our dear cat yesterday. I can't imagine losing our dog as well. My deepest sympathies to you opiate.

15. Shit, I'm really sorry to hear that. I lost an 11-year-old cat very suddenly a few months ago.

And our other cat is 16 with a bad thyroid, so no telling how much time she might have left.

17. thanks.. yeah, Sharivan was only about 11, so we thought he had a bit left in him..

In fact, we were just up at the local "health food" pet store last night getting stuff to spoil the shit out of him...

21. I know what you're going through

We lost two 17 yr old beloved dogs a year apart. At first we didn't want any more, but we eventually got another two rescue dogs and it really helped.

Like George Carlin said, life is a series of dogs.

22. Thanks, Major..

Yeah, we were originally planning on looking at replacing the first dog maybe around the holidays. (Eldest son really took that one hard).. I'm thinking of sticking with that.. give us a couple months to really get our shit together, then talking to our landlady about the pugs she breeds maybe..

23. We lost our 19 y/o mini doxie (one month shy anyway) July 31st

My sons and I are of course still grieving.

Take your time and grieve, don't let anyone rush you. Don't let anyone belittle your feelings.

I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.

I wonder if Sharivan may have left this plane to keep your Pom company in the dog hereafter.

29. I am very sorry for your loss.

Hurts like hell doesn't it? I lost two within weeks of each other some twenty years ago and it still breaks my heart to think of it.

I have had some excellent fosters and rescues in the meantime and I expect you will have a few yourself, but take your time to grieve.

Already reeling from one loss and dealt another. You must be a mess of emotions. I hope you feel better soon, but I am sure it will be tough. I am really sorry for your losses.

We have a little Shih-tzu, too. She's a little sweetie, and I'm sure yours was, too. My condolences. : hug:
