Default When was the last time you Cried?

Yesterday.

I have an eight year old Chocolate Lab, Jackson. He is the one dog that stands out as the best friend as a pet I have ever been blessed to know. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a lump under and insidehis right front leg. He hasn't favored it or even seemed to know it was there, but I made an appointment with the Vet. anyway. He and I went to the Vet. yesterday late in the afternoon, and his lungs have a condition that is unrepairable. More or less he is only using about 10% of his lungs and it's not getting any better. TheVet. told me to allow him to rest as much as he will, and that he may have a few months. He rode in the front seat with me on the way home and it was the worst feeling I have felt in a very long time. The worst part is I could tell he could tell something was wrong with me and seemed to be there to comfort me.

I cried the whole way.

Sorry to here about Jackson. My old hunting dog was 15 when she passed away. Never could bring myself to get another one,even quick hunting for years.I figure there has got to be a place in heaven for old dogs. :angel

Not good news Curtis.

I think most of us on here have had to deal with this situation in some way shape or form. I know I dealt with it a few weeks back, and it's never easy.

I think I know you well enough to say that you spent as much time with that dog as you could and he (and you as well) enjoyed every minute of it. You've given your pal a great life and he's returned the favor 1,000 times.

When the time comes, be there for him and make it as easy on him as it can be -- which isn't always the easiest thing for us as people -- and think of the good times.

Just now. I have lost 2 dogs this year alone. It sucks. One I had for 10 years and the other I had for a little over a year. It hurt with both of them and I am still not ready to try and get another one. Just remember the good times. Dogs never complain, no matter how much pain they're in.

I have been through it too. I know exactly what you are talking about.



It has been 8 years, and when I think about it I still get that feeling.



These animals we are privileged to share our lives with don't ask for much,

but they give us all that they have.

Good luck getting a bunch of grown men to come out on this one! You know men don't cry!



Sad news about the pup. Prayers are with both of yall.



I do hope this doesn't get derailed into a pet thread though.

On another note.

I must admit that I did the other day when I saw my power bill.

To answer the question though, I got choked up last week when I watched this video. I think I cried, I know I was angry.
