R.I.P. big boy. I will always love you. :'(

Yesterday morning we brought our big dog to the vet. He had prostate cancer.

Grizzly I will always love you. You gave me the best 11 years of my life. You were so smart. You can now run free with hip problems. No more pills. You were loved by thoughs who knew you but struck fear into the hearts of thoughs that didn't. Be free buddy.

My pore female cat is really upset. She loved him so much. Yesterday she sat where his food dish once was. Today she is running around looking and calling for him

He is the big wolf hybred in the pic.

I bet that'd be scary!

Give yourself time to mourn, though. He sounds like he was a pretty special dog to you. Cry about your loss, reflect on it all, and mourn.

If you are looking to get another dog to fill the void, wait to do that until you have honestly moved on and done all those things listed above. Getting another dog while you are sad that you lost a beloved pet can seem like the natural thing to do but can lead to a lot of problems down the road with the new dog as far as training. Buying a new dog while you are emotionally unstable tells the new dog you yourself are not stable and can not be a good pack leader.

I know you never mentioned getting another dog but I just wanted to toss this around for you in case it crossed your mind. :) So wait until you are in good spirits again.

This might come out as cold but I mouned a month ago. He had really gone down hill. I'm still very upset and cry about it but I know in my heart that he is beter off now.

I'm not looking to replace "him" but I'm look to rehire for his job. No other dog will ever fill the void. I'm looking to rescue a dog. Give another boy a chance at haven a good life.

I agree with you 100% though. I don't exspect a new dog to be Grizzly. I actualy keep calling Cheecho (JRT in pic) by Grizzly.

It's strange how at peace I feel, it's almost like he is trying to tell me that it's ok to move on. As I took off his collar for the vet tec to take him away he winked at me.

No, no. I didn't feel that as being cold. I went through the same feelings with our old cat. He had deteriorated a lot during his last years with us, suffering from kidney failure and general old age. My mom and I finally came to the decision that it would be best to relieve him and euthanasia was the best option--as also agreed by our vet. We knew this time was coming and in the clinic room it was really hard but watching him relax after the sedation and afterwards, it felt good knowing he wasn't suffering anymore. There's always that bit of "uneasiness" when you realize you made the decision to end a creature's life like that but in the end, it was for the best.
