    Ive come here at least 5X to post my renewal of membership in this hated club in the month or so since my Marley went over the bridge. But the tears have kept me from finishing. He was meant to be mine. Got him the spring after we moved to Utah at the SPCA on 4/20. Was my kids dog always by their side. Had the softest ears and loved everyone except for guiney pigs. Always up for adventure even after his body wasnt. At more than one point he has saved my life.

    We knew it was time and scheduled the thing. The morning of the thing wife is driving my truck through the neighborhood and my pup Lola jumps out the window to chase the covey of quail running across to road. Broke femur needing plate and screws. When we took her in the vet knew Marley was on the dockey for that afternoon. He hugged us and cried with us and didnt charge for Marley. What a day that was maybe one of the worst goddamned days of my life.

    Hey hunny is the roof leaking? I got all this water running down my face....

    I feel bad for you and your family Fugitive, and I feel bad for Lola too. I know how hard our Cleo has taken it since her companion Isabel died. And Cleo is a jumper too--nothing as bad as that femur but both ACL's torn jumping (the vets call them CCLs) in separate incidents, both had to be repaired.

    Lola is pretty much healed up g2g now. The benefits of being 7 in dog years. The absence of Marley in our life is still palpable. Lola got over it pretty well but our middle dog was way freaked out. "Wtf! Both of my buddies left one at a time today and didnt come back! Im not going anywhere with you fukers."

    Marley looks like one the best dogs ever.

    Lola too.

    I'm truly sorry for your loss.

    We have all been lucky to have these pups grace our lives.

    Vibes to all that lost pups. Dogs are special creatures, never will you find a more honest friend.

    Rocky has a subluxing patella tendon and we are looking at getting it repaired soon, but not sure yet. It is still a stage 1 and he will frequently go weeks without it popping out. I think itís been at least a month currently. Vet said at his size, 60lbs, it is just a matter of time before he wears down the inside of the knee and that the later we wait the more likely he gets arthritis, etc. Surgical consult was more optimistic, said as long as we arenít running him too hard and it isnít bothering him we can wait and see. She said it could stay the same for a long time and maybe could even improve as he reaches maturity. At just over a year old, keeping him penned up and non-weight bearing for six weeks sounds incredibly hard. And we have a two month old baby to juggle. Others said donít worry they will give you sedatives, but keeping him drugged for weeks seems a bad idea too. Iím worried about putting it off and him getting worse and Iím worried about getting it done then him getting injured because he runs, jumps, etc too soon.

    I don't like this thread
    Thank you all so very much for your kind thoughts and words. It means so much to me. Thank you.

    To those in a similar situation as me, please take care of yourself. I haven't eaten much and have been drinking too much. I've made myself physically ill. Feel like shit right now and that's not what he would have wanted but the pain is so acute, I'm getting through it in whatever way I can.

    Thanks again to all, it really does help. Much love !!

    Vibes JongL. The only thing that helps me cheer up after losing a dog is spending time around another dog. Don't be afraid to share that love with a foster (doesn't have to be permanent). Take care

    This thread...

    Chevy is my first dog. Heís been with me 14 years, through a divorce and a bereavement. He was going for rides until last spring- fortunately we have some good trail photos of him from what turned out to be his last ride. He had his annual checkup last week and the vet sent us home with a quality-of-life checklist. When his time comes, itís going to level me.

    Tough stuff. Enjoy while you can.

    Thanks man. I been hanging with my neighbor's dog, charlie. Its still tough because its so fresh in my mind, and he's still freaked out that his buddy's gone, so I think we both need a couple more days.

    Chevy looks like a good little dude! Please have patience as he gets older. I said and did things out of frustration that I can't take back and wish I could. I accused my dog of not trying hard enough to keep down his food, which was a terrible thing to say, when he had been fighting like hell for a few weeks. Talking with people, its not uncommon to get frustrated like that and do things that you'll regret, so, something to keep in mind. I read a quote that said something like "try to live your life like the man your dog already thinks you are"

    Know when to say when.
    We signed up for that responsibility when we accepted them into our lives.

    Then get another dog to fill the hole in your life.

    Bailey succumbed this morning. I birthed her myself many years ago.

    If you ever hung with her, or skied with her, you knew what a kind badass she was.

    Her Mom is a wreck, so if you know her, maybe reach out with some kind words.













    And resting out her last days:
