Bitch of a day, Chance, our big sweet boy died this morning. I was with him and he never woke up and didn't even have the spasms that normally occur when they die. We had him on gabapentine, I read that it was a very effective pain killer for dogs. He spent his last weeks pain-free and happy!


He's on the right

I don't think average healthy people understand how attached we get to our dogs....maybe it is cuz we are so isolated and they are our social life. I can't even imagine what losing Harlee would do to me. Sorry for you loss Brad!

Want a beautiful boy. Losing such an integral part of the family is terrible. All we can do is exactly what you did...keep them out of pain. So sorry to hear about this. Kevin

Thanks everyone! Yes, it was a huge loss. He was always happy. He was a foreclosure rescue. Hard as it is to believe he was abused by the father of the family that owned him. The father had this little mutt and the wife surprised him with Chance and the jerk took it out on Chance!

They kept him locked up in the garage. The mutt was given preference at feeding time and steal Chances food.

We did our best to make up for it. We took them every where. He greeted everyone with a wagging tail. The tears just won't stop.

On a separate note, Mark, good to see you posting.

Thanks everyone.
