We plant a tree over the graves of our pets when we bury them.

I know how hard it can be to find your pet run over , I've been the one to find ours most of the time and it's very hard to handle.

Oh man this isn't easy. My brother called yesterday, our cat 'Spike' got put down He was 14yrs old and we'd had him since I was 8.

He seemed perfectly healthy & normal recently so this is such a shock to me. I moved out of home on the weekend and this has put an end to all my recent celebrations & optimism.

Apparently a blood clot had formed, paralyzing his back legs. My brother found him stuck in the cat door, in a pool of his own pee, crying in pain. Mum rushed him to the vet who provided a diagnoses of the clot and probable heart issues. He was given some painkillers and it was decided to make it a one-way trip.

I cant begin to imagine how painful and confusing the whole experience was for him. I'm glad I wasn't there to see him in such a state, but it's destroying me that I never had a chance to say goodbye.

RIP dude

Feel for you mate, had the same thing happen almost a year ago, when our family dog Rosie died after I moved out. The no goodbye is the hardest part but you also get to remember Spike at his (?) best.

Just be prepared for it feeling a little weird and empty when you got back round the house for a while til you get used to the place without him.

Yeah we've done the same. The (ex)dog from the OP has a lime tree growing on top of him!

Theory being we can have a corona and lime on the dog at some point He would have wanted it that way, he loved his beer.

My cocker spaniel x blue heeler Misty died last night. We've recently moved house and she wasn't moving in the afternoon except wagging her tail when we went to check on her so we took her to the vet and we had to put her down. They think she ate something poisonous because it was a rapid change. We've had her for eight years, I got her for Christmas when I was 11. She was a crazy dog and I miss her a lot now.

Here is Misty on a hairy day:

We got our dog put down tonight at the vet. He was 15, and was going down hill. His eyesight was very poor, was quite deaf, he had a heart murmour and just started having problems breathing. We were listening to him struggling to breath in bed this morning, and we knew it was time. It was very difficult for my wife, she's had him since he was 8 weeks old, and he was a hell of a character. He was 1 year old when my rottweiler puppy arrived, and he owned my rottweiler bigtime. The rottweiler did what he was told, owned by a half foot high fluffball with attitude who owned the house and everything in it. R.I.P Ben up in doggy heaven.

I've got thousands of pics of our dogs, but this is a nice cozy one poor in photographic skill, but nice in that its at our my Grandparents old place, a big 6 acre place in the country where they both loved to roam free and bark at the horses - Ben (the little white one) would bark like a demon at a 7 foot high horse, not scared at all he would be trampled - fearless. The sunbeam on Ben makes it a memorable shot.

My old girl Kat started suffering seizures and as hard as it was i had her put down as i could not allow myself to see her suffer just so she could still be with me . She was 15 years old.

RIP KAT 26-4-08

my mrs little dog (papillion x fruit bat = best way to descibe the lil bugger) had a run in with her other golden lab.

Its usually been over food, the jealous idiots growl n such, but it got out of hand this time...

The lab some how managed to actually chomp and break the lil guys jaw, maybe dislocated it too...we took him to the vets, but they said it wouldnt be guaranteed that he would make the long and intensive recovery with the feeding via a tube + the 2k+ bill we would face regardless if he made it or not...

Was very sad, both me and the mrs breaking down in the vets...

Had to put the poor lil bugger down...

Goodbye Shadow. I feel very lucky to have had such a great dog.

He was a few months away from 14. Liver failure so we had to put him down tonight. Very sad. I stayed with him in the vets at the end, I hope it comforted him.
