Default RIP

I lost my dog of 7 years a few weeks ago, i went out for a couple of hours and came home to find him dead. He had tried to jump the side picket gate and he got his paw stuck between the wood and just hung there and died in the heat. The neibours heard him crying but didnt do anything .. He was my best mate, as all you pet owners would have experienced. Im still grieving for him and no other dog can replace him

RIP Bosco.

Not pretty. Messy and rather slow death. Looked at one point that I'd have to finish her off to put her out of misery, but she died before I took a swing with the block splitter.

Always feels rotten to lose a pet, even worse when you killed it yourself. RIP Casper.
Sorry to hear about that mate, When we lived out of town Dad ran over our dog called 'good dog' because the fella was old and liked sleeping under cars. Dad had to put him out of his misery. I can't imagine how bad he would've felt because he'd been the one to bring him home after another teacher had brought him into school and said he was going to the pound.

Sorry to hear about Bosco , I can't believe anybody would leave any animal to die like that.

Sorry to hear that. The bloke accross the road has a boxer that did that and it took me over an hour to just get close enough to un bolt a picket and set him free. I'd have got bitten to save him for your neibours to do nothing is so sad.

How awful for you, I can only imagine how you would feel coming home to find Bosco. It takes time, especially under the circumstances.

Well the "good" thing was that while she was paralysed I was stroking her (waiting for the vet to open) and she was purring so I don't think she was in a great deal of pain, just couldn't move. I pointed her face towards me so she could at least see me, hopefully that helped also. Vet said she was an older cat anyways, so there wasn't much they could do.

My dog, which has been with me for 17yrs had to be put down a few days ago, his organs were just failing due to old age. I swear it is one of the hardest things to go through and I really feel for those who've lost their loved ones or pets, I'm still recovering atm, its so damn hard but as each day passes by I hope time heals.

My first dogs (A cocker spaniel and a labrador x dingo) died 10 years ago... yet I still miss them and I get all choked up when I see puppies that look like them

Does anybody else behave like that?

Same goes for my cat. She's been dead for nearly 2 years but I still miss her so much

As we take care of our pets and look out for its safety, I think deep down us we feel that its one of our 'kids'... maybe thats why... but i totally know where you are coming from.

They become part of your family so i think its natural. I know I certainly miss the pets in the family that have died.

One of my babies has ETL of up to 75 years! But unfortunately he only made it to about 17 months He got himself wedged against a rock overnight and drowned.

a few months ago i lost a series of Siamese Fighting Fish. they were only fish, but as far as fish go they had personality. First lost was a red male named Chuck, he started out rather shy but after a few months became playful and would follow your finger closely or nip at it when you stuck it in. His replacement was an electric blue female called Skye, she was always active and followed your fingers, she died shortly after Happy, who was an electric blue male who unfortunately attacked the other fish in my tank and died alone in a small 1-2L tank.
it was sad losing them.

not as sad as the news i got about 6 months ago that the family dog had hung herself jumping off a 10m balcony. her leash had become tangled and she didnt make it to the ground. my dad came home to find her like that. she was mainly Dingo, and rather stupid. ran headfirst into the glass door alot. but like all dogs she cared and was a loved member of the family. she used to get scared during thunderstorms and hide under the tv stand. her name was Wallah
