My dog just died and nobody seems to know why.  I'm gonna take some time for myself to get my head straight.  If you need anything, the staff can get in touch with me.

Gosh Darnit!  :icon_sad: No man should have to lose his dog and not know why. Nothing can be typed or written or said that could make the pain go away, just know that your dog is now forever chasing squirrels, gettings treats and belly rubs and getting to run around and never be tired or in pain.

I hate it when people lose pets...

In your situation, I wouldn't know if I'd be really sad, or really angry. But probably a combination of both.

Hopefully you find some closure, good luck sorting things out.

I am sorry sorry for you loss, Ron. I love dogs so much and to lose one of the greatest mammals on the planet is always very sad.

RILEY

I thought about you earlier today
but I didn't understand why. I see
your face when I look at her and
everytime I cry.

I often find my self, calling her
your name. And I wish it were you
every time we play a game.

You’ve helped my through some rough

times, Lord, knows you were always there.
I used to think you look so smart,
the way you’d sit and stare.

You’d always lend a thoughtful ear,
a problem you’d never miss. And I miss
the way, on my cheek you’d lay
a little doggy kiss.

I know you’re gone for good now, though

it is hard for me to see. That you won’t
come when I call your name, it will always
be just me.

I know you didn’t leave me empty handed,
you left me a part of you. And, I will always
remember how much you loved me, and the
thoughtful things you’d do.

It is hard for me  to realize no more cookies

you will Mooch. And, it is hard for me to say
goodbye, so rest is peace, my pooch.

 icon_cry Sorry to hear that buddy. Take your time. Mikagami lost his pooch last year to cancer; I was there when he died, and had to take him to the animal hospital post-mortem.  crybaby At least he knew why his pup died.

I want to sincerely thank you all for your condolences, calls, emails, pms, etc.  It is appreciated very much.  I'm back at work today (I took yesterday off, despite my boss trying to offer his consolences by reminding me that they'd like more time for vacation day requests.  Gee...I'd have liked more time too.  Thanks for stepping on me when I'm vulnerable.) and I'm going to try to start to get things back to normal.  I think the routine will help keep my head straight.  Thanks again to the staff for keeping things moving forward over the last few days as well.  I appreciate not having to worry when I'm away.

Thanks again to everyone.
