Goodbye to Flash

I had to take my dog, Flash to be euthansaed today. He was coping with life anymore. We got him when the boys were 1 and 3, so he has been part of our life for many years.

Awwwww, rest in peace, Flash. Your family sure is going to miss you. You looked like a very cool dog.

I am so sorry. I know how difficult that decision is. He was a very beautiful dog who looks like he enjoyed his life with you. My condolences to you and your family. You are all in my prayers for peace in your grief.

Sorry for your loss. A pet becomes a part of the family.

Sorry about Flash Miniman....The "Kill Dawg" is lying here at my feet, so I know your loss is hard!

What a name........must have been a great dog and companion especially for your children.........that's also where they learn unconditional love and friendship......I'm sure that Flash had the best life ever.........I'm sorry........
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

My deepest sympathies to your and your family. I've been through that too many times, most recently in August 2007. Those decisions are among the hardest pet lovers ever have to make, but when time comes, it's pretty clear what you have to do. I'm sure you made the right choice. Your pain will eventually pass, leaving you with only good memories of your beloved Flash.
