This morning, my little buddy Harley (Dachshund) left the pain of this world. I adopted him 12 years ago when he was 6. He went to work with me, he went to Scout camp with me, he went to bed with me! GOd this SUCKS!!!!!

Your friends here all understand the pain of losing a beloved member of your pack. We all have to cope with in our own way. After 9 months, I am still grieving for my sweety. The new pup helps a lot.

Oh, Dogshirt, I'm sorry to hear it -- your special buddy, in the middle of all those dogs. But what a long life he had! I have a picture in my mind of him, sort of strutting among all those leggy runners of yours, top dog, the boss's right hand. I don't think he'll give up the spot that easily, when he did it so well -- he will stay with you in his way.

But yeah, it sucks. I'm sad for you, man.

Thank you my friends. It was pretty rough for a while. I caught myself doing things like setting the mac n cheese pan down for him a week after the fact, and I wasn't dealing with it well at all. SO, I went to Craigslist and with a bit of searching I found a black and tan silver dapple male like Harley.
So the Son and I set out for what should have been a 10-12 hour trip to get the new pup. HA! Biggest storm of the year in southeast Washington-Northeast Oregon!
It took us 34 hours! Between road conditions, highway closures, snow, freezing rain, you name it we had it!
But we did make it home, and Otto is now a part of my life. He's 5 months old and a total monster! He doesn't walk ANYWHERE! He RUNS! Non-stop, right up till he falls over, sleeps for 2-4 hours and gets up and does it again! He drags my slippers off to who knows where. He has toys strung from one end of the house to the other.
After the last several years of my old dog it's like being on speed!
AND I LOVE THE HELL OUT OF HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dogshirt! When I lost my beloved Sheltie named "Daisy" in 1997 I was in such a depression. Then came "Teddy Bear" a rescue Sheltie. Each and every 7 Shelties I have had have added so much to our lives and each have been unique in every way.

My new pup, Riley, who I got a few weeks ago manages to grab a roll of toilet paper and toilet paper my whole house! Nothing is off limits for this boy! He is so full of energy and excitment that ole me, hubby and my old senior dogs are like...what the heck? But, you know what? Riley has added new life into our home that was not there before. Yeah he gets into much mischief and trouble but he is sooooooo worth it and know we will have many years of enjoyment to come with him! He is a good boy in most ways, just going through that puppy stage.


Oh, Riley runs off with my slippers too! LOL

Hang in there! The puppy phase does get easier..................at least I am hoping! hahahaha unsure.gif

Feel free to compare stories with me and others as all us puppy parents need support at this time! hahahaha

Dogshirt, Congrats on the new pup.

CelticRose, Glad to hear that Riley is doing well.

We still haven't gotten another dog. Losing 3 in one year was really hard. I still do things that were so much of a habit when we had the dogs. I have been looking, but hubby hasn't gotten to that point yet. Maybe someday.

Valpal, you have been through one tremendous year as it is. I can see why holding off might be best in your case. Every one is different. In time, your hubby will come around and want new furry life in the home again.
And when that special dog comes around, you'll know it! wink.gif

Love him so much my time would be so dull without him...

Otto sounds like a heck of a lot of furry fun. Have a great time with, Dogshirt.

Pets can become almost as much a member of your family as children. Dogs especially as they are pack animals. By the time they are trained one member of the house is the "alpha dog." That loyalty lasts till the dog is gone. Even if the dog is abused (God forbid) the loyalty is usually still there.

My brother is a Vet and he says nearly every ailment and disease that humans get has its counter part in dogs plus a few more. A lot of the ailments they get are because they lead the same sedentary life style we do.

My dog suffers from allergies from time to time, and he takes one Claritin tablet a day. The same thing I would take. It works great. (before you try it, my dog weighs 65 lb.)

You always have to remember that they can do nothing to relieve their own suffering and sometimes we have to make tough decisions for them.

Slàinte,
