    Ours loves McD fries too ... any left in the bag are declared "Ollie fries".

    The thought of having to loose her one day kills me. A group of our friends all have dogs and they all get on great and play together. Some tears in our future but happy times now.

    Not dragging out the final moments is the best and kindest. They have a happy healthy life and then just go quickly at the end with their best pals smiling at them.

    Wait a while before you get another one. Allow yourself time to grieve.

    I feel very sad for you. That is such a shame.

    My brother & sister had our wonderful westy Princess put to sleep almost 2 years ago-it was so sad.

    I feel very bad for you and your wife . Please accept my condolences tooktheredpill. It is very sad.

    Our dogs and cats are like our children too.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. My wife and I lost our three-year old cat suddenly last year. He was the best pet either of us ever had - so affectionate that he reminded us of a little puppy. It still hurts but fades a little as time moves on. I really have a soft spot for pets - they each have a unique personality, and are innocent and loyal unlike many humans. Condolences as you grieve.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose a beloved family member. I had a dog for 16 years that I adored. It took me about 10 years to deal with it before I started to feel better. I had a cat for 15 years that passed away a couple of years back. He was amazing. I loved these family members dearly. I have a puppy now, and she's delightful. Somehow you get through it. How lucky we are that they have been in our lives.

    I am not a religious person myself (atheist, actually), but find this a wonderfully comforting poem and thought. My pet is the only immediate family I have now, and I understand your grief.

    The Rainbow Bridge

    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....
