Goodweed, so sorry that you lost Kaysee! We inherited two stray dogs besides 9 cats in our almost completed house in the countryside. Now it makes me cherish the dogs even more. Do take care of yourself and your family!

I believe that animals have a way of holding off the inevitable until their loved ones are with them. I have had two pets do that. I am so sorry and I know how sad you are. I planted a pear tree in honor of my doggy that passed away and somehow it still comforts me. I wish there was something I could do for you and your family. God Bless.

I was just talking to a friend about this incident. Not only do pets do that but people supposedly do too. We were talking about our mothers passing on and she started telling me about the end. She said her mother told her to go on home that she (her mom) wanted to rest. My friend kept telling her mother she wasn't tired and wanted to stay. As she st epped away from the bed the mother could not see her and than shortly after that she passed. My own mother who had so many kids, seemed to wait until she had heard everyone and just 25-30 minutes after my last brother visit ed her bedside did she pass away. The only thing I know is if you take time and are aware of the time element you could be surprised too. Goodweed's dog couldn't of had a more pleasant way of leaving. The dog was with the two people who cared so much and he/she just felt at peace. I feel as long as you remember the time you had w/your pets they will always be around one way or another. As Goodweed said to just make sure you love your pets.

It was the first time ever that Kaysee wasn't standing at the door with her tail wagging. Even last night she had strength enough to show joyous expectation. But today, she just had nothing left. It's a seven minute drive from our house to the vets. She died on my wife's lap on the way there. I carried her to the car, and then into the vets.

Kaysee is in a great place. She was always a loyal and great dog. We will miss her.

I literally have tears in my eyes right now. I am so sorry for your loss GW. Yes, she is in a better place and no longer suffering. She will see you at the Rainbow Bridge (halfbaked's poem she posted on here) sometime. Until then, she is happy and waiting for you to come!! I am so sorry for your loss...just remember we are here to give you support when needed. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
God Bless.

GW, I'm so so sorry!! I wish there were something that I could do to help.
I know you said that you don't want another dog, that you can't replace Kaysee. That is so true, BUT, think of the joy and love that you gave her and what you could do for another dog that is sitting and waiting for someone to love. Your not replacing her, you spreading the love to another that desperately needs it. God Bless to you and your wife!!!

I was thinking the same thing. She was safe in your wife's lap where she could die peacefully rather than on table in the vet's office. I'm sorry about the loss of Kaysee.

Thanks everyone. We will miss her. I still see her as a pup, with so much power in her hind legs that the front of her body raised like a motorcycle doing a wheelie whenever she took off. She was a playful animal and wanted so much for someone to just play with her. I hope she has someone to play with her now. She loved attention of any kind.

She was truly like a three year old child, innocent, and never in a grumpy mood. I wish the same could be said of me. I've not lost the child within. It waxes strong on a daily bases. But I do get grumpy at times, especially if I'm tired.

Dogs desearve better freinds than we people usually are. They love us so completely, and often, aren't given anything in return in so many homes. I've seen dogs that spent their entire life chained to a tree, their only excitement, barking at passers-by. It breaks my heart to see animals that are neglected.

When I look at the loyalty of most people, it pales incomparison with the loyalty of a good dog. For all of our vaunted intelligence, dogs put most of us to shame.

Boy, am I ever melancholy right now. There are some very good people in this world, and most of them are right here on D.C.

Though we may never meet personally, we are a suprisingly strong community. I think the U.N. could take lessons.
