Thanks Abs, loricatus, HM2Viking, and pagandeva.

I am trying to hang on to the happy memories of a wonderful dog.....remembering when I first saw her shortly after she was born, picking her out of a litter of 6. She was a greedy little puppy that I brought home to live with us until my mom came and took her to her new home in FL. She came back home to us when Mom died 5 years later. She lived happily with us pestering and playing with her daddy until he died 1 1/2 years ago. She mourned his loss, as did we all. But she became queen of the house, where she ruled the roost in a quiet but graceful manner until she died.

Yes......many happy memories.

I'm sorry to hear that your dog died. It is never easy to let go of a pet.

Hey - Hope you're doing ok missing your furbaby. It is hard, and moreso on me since I never had kids, and dh sometimes doesn't understand since he has 3 kids. It still makes me miss Sam at times, and makes me hurt for you during this time. I still tear up, and seeing the Rainbow Bridge still cuts into me. I'm going to try again to post a pic of Sam and see if it will upload.

This one is of him doing what he did best, nap. The one in my avatar is Sissie, the daschund I got after Sam passed. I am glad he lived a full life, 16 years old is a long life, but I still wanted to be selfish and keep him.

Anne.......what a sweet dog! Thanks for posting the picture of Sam.

I know what you mean about wanting to be selfish and keeping them. I am glad that my dog was not to the point of suffering. She was old but she could still get around just fine. She couldn't hear very well, but she knew hand signs. The main concern during the last several months was her eating. She used to be one that would eat anything and was a little pig. About 5 months ago, she stopped eating her dogfood and started losing weight. She would eat people food just fine. I started cooking her food. But that was difficult when I was out of town for extended periods of time when my dad was sick and eventually died. So I had to find something that my dh could handle when I was gone.

So, although I am very sad she is gone, I'm glad that she went peacefully and didn't appear to be in any great discomfort in her last days.
