I had to put my dog Mick down today
After I got home from work, I poured a Rolling Rock beer on his grave.
:)
RIP Mick

1. I am very sorry to hear this.
I always get upset when I hear about someone losing their companion animal. It's rough.

6. so sorry sasquatch
Grieve not,
nor think of me with tears
But laugh
and talk to me as if I were beside you.
I loved you so . . .
'Twas Heaven here with you

10. :-(
So sad to lose your friend. It's heartbreaking. You have my deepest sympathies.

Good of you to honor him with an offering like that. Did he like to drink beer in life?

12. Sorry to hear about your dog.
We had to do the same thing with our Sugar on May 31. It was really tough.

Pour another Rolling Rock on his grave and then drink one in his honor.
I really think our dogs are an extension of ourselves.

13. Aw damn and crap.
I hate this. We choose to live our lives with beings who's lives are so short. Where is the logic in this? RIP Mick.

14. I am so very sorry.
We have been in the same situation, and it really hurts the heart. Our big old guy rests in a white box wrapped in blue ribbon on the shelf above my computer. He was cremated, but we couldn't spread the ashes. :hug:

21. So sorry to hear that...maybe Mick is somewhere running with my
dog, Cody. I had to put him to sleep about 6 weeks ago. I found some pictures of him last night and started crying like a baby...

I miss that ol' dog so much...

So sorry to hear about your loss.

24. Sorry about that
I've been there many times. I was raised on a farm with lots of dogs, cats and some horses. It's always tough. My condolences. :)

29. How old was Mick?
My spouse and I have 2 pooches and 2 kitties in our home. Pooches are 9 years old.

My best to you as you go through the emotional stages of your animal's death. He probably thought you were a good human.

I'm so sorry.
