I'm sorry to hear that miniman. It sounds like Flash had a good, long life as part of your family, leaving you with some good memories. What a beautiful boy he was!

I'm so sorry, it takes strength to make that decision. Flash looks like he was a great dog and I'm sure he will be remembered.

This is what I told Flash when he was on the table - he had gotten really doddery and tired.

I also told the boys this. Yesterday morning, you could see that Flash wanted to do things, but just couldn't get his legs to coperate.

Flash sounds like he was a wonderful dog and know he is chasing tennis balls to his hearts content up in Doggie Heaven. Miniman it takes a lot of strength to let go of a family member. It is a very hard thing to do and I applaud you for making the right decision even though I am sure that is still hurts in your heart.

I'm so sorry! I've walked in those shoes and they are not easy steps to take. Take some comfort in knowing you did your last duty to your old friend. Hugs coming your way from me and Gidgett.
