Keep sharing those stories, I'm sure Mak would like that. Dogs are amazing. They can read our moods and know when we need a friend.
There is no better friend and companion than a good dog.

Loosing our furry best friends is tough, it leaves a hole in our soul so big you could drive a truck through it. While it’s never easy to put em down but it’s best for them to not suffer anymore. My condolences to you and your family. RIP Mak.

I still cry when I think about Outta Be a Law-Naughty Nellie (Her AKC name). Nellie for short.

She was the sweetest dog, great duck hunter, and taken too early with a broken back after 11 years on earth. I had to leave the room when they crossed her over the rainbow bridge. Tearing up just typing this....

That little blue penguin she had beside her on her death bed she had had since she was a puppy. The only toy she didn't pull apart into smithereens!

Dogs are better friends then people. Haven't had one for years but hope to soon. Get to spend time with my sons dog every once in a while and realize how much I miss one. Just not practical right now

I'm so sorry for your loss. We had to suffer through the loss of our big caucasian mountain dog last year. She could be stubborn and a pain sometimes, but still part of the family. Sweet with family and friends, fierce with strangers. I had tears in my eyes thinking about her for months. I feel your pain, and hope you find comfort in time.

XR650R,

My condolences on your loss. Worst feeling in the world as far as I’m concerned.
I’ve never seen an animal love life more than most dogs.

Regards,
SL

I'm so sorry. They are such a gift. While most animals have been forced to become domesticated, the fact that long ago wolves began to choose us and we coevolved to where we are is really special. Not to discount breeding along the way, but most people seem to have forgotten the nuance of that founding relationship. They seem to know us better than we can ever know ourselves, and offer the clearest mirror of truth and love if we are willing to recognize it.

We lost a pup this week too. Our 15 year old lab (Apollo) has been having increasing issues and I'd been preparing myself for the inevitable end, but out of the blue our 11 year old catahoula (Stone) collapsed after romping with our 2 year old shepherd/malamute (Huckleberry). It turns out he had a fast moving somewhat rare and untreatable cancer that causes massive internal bleeding.

I'm so glad that we have the others to help us through, but we are definitely feeling adrift between this and all the other shit in the world. Going back to my mirror comment, I've just been trying to think about how now is a more important time than any to aspire to that standard of compassion for my community as a person.

I know your pain, and I don't wish it on anyone though it unfortunately comes with the package of all the joy they bring. I have come to the belief that God put them on this earth to prepare us for future care and loss of each other as humans.

I have special love for the senior dogs.
I may start adopting them in the future just to give them lovely last months on earth. God is dog spelled backward.

It’s been 8 yrs since I had to put my boy G down.
Still hard to think about….
I need another dog for sure, miss the companionship and added level of security
But the thought of loss is almost too much!
I’ve only, ever, have done rescues. never paid for an animal.
And have had some of the most amazing pets you can imagine.
But shelters these days want big $$$

Sorry for you loss, I feel your pain

Sometimes getting another fur-buddy can be quite healing, and actually help with the loss.

It can turn sad memories to good ones.

So, instead of just remembering the sad time at the end, your new buddy will do something that makes you laugh, and say “Charlie used to do that, too!” :bigsmile: , or “Charlie used to love when we did this!”

It helps remind us of the good times.

And while some may think they’re betraying their buddy by getting another…just think, he’s finally got you trained to be a good pet poppa :thumbsup2:

Also, the high fees you mentioned, include a lot of things, like spay/neuter, deworming, vaccines, microchips, and a 30-day adoption trial.

Below is the info for your Camano Island Animal Shelter. For $150, you could get a pooch 7 months or older, with everything I mentioned, and more, plus you’d be supporting the shelter:
