    Sad day, got up as usually, fed the pets then went shopping. Came home only to find my female lab, Mazey lying at the foot of the stairs in the foyer. Some of the funiture moved, suggestive of a struggle. I think she chocked. She was a real lover. So gentle with the grandkids. She was only three. In the picture, she is the one with the red collar. Her buddy is our lab Max. She will be dealy missed. best buddies 001.jpg

    So sorry to hear. They are such good friends, but they just don't stay around long enough. Our 9 year old Black Lab has started what will be a loosing battle with cancer last month. Every moment with him is more special now.
    Anybody who has ever loved a dog should read this book. Kinda helps one see dog in a bigger picture and might make it easier to let one go. I'm hoping it helps me when the time comes.

    So Sorry Save$... I'm sure she will be remembered by your family and your other Lab.

    I lost my 8 yr old Shepard this Summer. They become family. He was the Best Dog/Companion that I ever had.

    Condolences:(

    The Creation

    When God had made the earth and sky
    the flowers and the trees,
    He then made all the animals
    the fish, the birds and bees.

    And when at last He'd finished
    not one was quite the same.
    He said, "I'll walk this world of mine
    and give each one a name."

    And so He traveled far and wide
    and everywhere He went,
    a little creature followed Him
    until it's strength was spent.

    When all were named upon the earth
    and in the sky and sea,
    the little creature said, "Dear Lord,
    there's not one left for me."

    Kindly the Father said to him,
    "I've left you to the end.
    I've turned my own name back to front
    and called you dog, My friend."

    I found it very easy to loose the images of the end of my Labs life shortly after she passed. Traumatic as it was, the volume of fond memories overshadowed that single moment in mere days. I hope this is your experience as well. Sorry your journey with her was cut so short.

    :( What a horrible way to lose a pet, so young.

    This is the poem my wife posts on the kennels web page (along with some happy pics) whenever a client's dog passes.

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    Thank you for your kind words and thoughts. Hard as it is for us, it is painful to watch my older dog, Max. He has gone to the door barking, goes out, sits on the steps and keeps barking. I'm trying to give him more attention.

    I almost hesitate to say it . . . but sometimes I mourn the loss of beloved pets more than people.

    Sorry to hear about this . . .

    I'm so sorry to hear that!

    We lost a 4 year old cat a couple months ago very suddenly. I suspect she may have had a heart condition that we didn't know about.

    It isn't easy when it is expected, but when it just happens out of the blue, it is really rough. I feel for your family in the next few days/weeks when things are just a little too quiet and not quite right around the house.

    My older dog Max, is heartbroken. We began looking through the rescue shelters. We visited a few today. Odd, but most of the orphan dog there were mixed breeds with a breed of dog that I don't trust. I am at an age where the dog just might outlive me so I really want to be sure I am getting the one I feel best about. These labs have been so good. My grand kids can have food around them, sit or fall on them and hey don't move, growl, or bite. No arguing at the food bowl either. Most of the dogs I viewed today would jump up on their cages and show teeth. I know it is stressing to be there.
    I am going to see a puppy full breed lab tomorrow. A female who I hope will be a new friend to my old boy just like Mazey was.
