- Dogs dead!!!
poor you and poor dog. What an awful way for him to go. At least he was doing what he loved.
We lost ours (golden retriever)last April. I think I only stopped being a bit upset about 2 months ago. Ours was 7, ends up he had a heart problem, we think. He died in the night after panting for a week and looking uncomfortable 4 visits to the vets didn’t turn up a thing ether.Posted 8 years ago
It’s a funny old world. I still have sadder memories of the death of my dog (bought for me when I was 5 as a replacement for my younger brother who was killed in an accident) than I do for any of my grandparents. Oddly enough I knew my dog had died the second my parents called (I was at uni).Posted 8 years ago
Ironicly i was going to start looking to rehome him as we are about to have No 5 child and it woulnd be fair on him as we would have even less time than we do now….yes he sertainly went on a high, literally 5 mins earlier he was swimming and digging stones out of the river. the downside is that i had to get him home, probably 200 yards, but as he weighs quite a bit and i cant carry him i had to run back and get my barrow!.(a little undignified i know!!) but i couldnt think of anything else.Posted 8 years ago
I’m sorry for you too, I lost my terrier at the end of last year and we ended up getting a new dog as I needed my companion.
The new ones great, he hasn’t taken all the pain away, but he’s certainly kept me too busy to think about it much.
It does sound like you’re going to have your hands full soon enough too, so good luck with the new arrival.Posted 8 years agoBarney_McGrewMember
Had a similar thing happen with our first Boxer. We had her out for a walk and she was running around as normal and then just slowed up greatly. I had a look at her and she was rather grey. I was worried so I ran back to the house to get the car. By the time I returned I found my wife lying on the pavement with the dog dead beside her. Truly heartbreaking! She was 7 months old and died of aortic stenosis. 🙁
Sorry to hear of your loss.

Out with the dog as normal,( He is a Dogue d Bordaux, or “Hooch” as they are commonly known) He had jumped in the river, played the dig out a stone game and on the way back he collapsed on the bridge more out breath than normal and after a couple of minutes it was clear he was not going to get up… and he stopped breating.Posted 8 years ago
mrmichaelwright, if ever an Ardbeg was merited, this is it.
Stoney and family, my thoughts are with you all. Hard times, really hard times. But, as you say, “remember the good times”.
You know damned well that the hound is now up there chasing the eternal rabbit. OK, so he’s got competition from the wondrous Fred who is right up there chasing that self same rabbit, but it’s all good!Posted 8 years ago
