Unhappy My sweet dog Kasey died today.

She was 11 years old. She was the kind of dog that never showed pain and she fought the breast cancer valiantly!!
She never whimpered in pain. She waited until we got home, went outside with my youngest son, who she has slept with for about 10 years, and took her last breath.
Even when she had her puppies, she was having trouble and I had to end up cutting her myself because Rebel's foot was hung and she never whimpered, just let me do it. She had two puppies, the only other one died from being in the womb too long so we kept Rebel. He's already said goodbye. He went out and sat and cried with me. She was such a good girl all her life. She was an Australian/Lab mix.
I'm glad that she isn't suffering any longer. I was going to call the vet tomorrow and have her put down.

Thanks for letting me let it out.

I had three dogs in my life, and after the last one I just said enough. I can't do it anymore. I'm sorry you had to go thru this. I know how you feel.
You are what you eat.

Thank you everyone. She really was a sweet dog and very protective of the boys all her life!

Charlie D, you see, I'm a real sucker for dogs. I have 5 others. One that's 13 has had a stroke, but, still jumping around like an idiot One that is 8, one that is 6 and two are 2. I only had 2 dogs growing and I guess I'm making up for it now. If I could, I would take every dog I see dumped out here. For the love that these animals give, I will gladly go through the rough time of them dying. I'm glad that she didn't die alone.
I know a lot of people that have had a pet for so long and not be able to take seeing it again, and there is nothing wrong with that. It just shows how much you cared and loved them and don't want to see another one go through and break your heart, but, like I said,I'm a real sucker for them It doesn't mean I don't care, I just don't know life without them

texasgirl, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My dog Snowy, an American Eskimo, died about 2 months ago. The vet broke her back while pulling a few teeth. I had her for close to 12 years and loved her so much that my ex and future wife used to joke that she wanted to be reincarnated as my dog.

I didn't really plan on getting another dog this quick, but I started volunteering at the SPCA and they had a male American Eskimo who I just fell in love with. By coincidence his name also was Snow.

I can tell how much you love your dogs, the 5 who are still with you are very lucky to have such a wonderful momma.

I'm saddened by your loss. It's so easy to get attached to your dog and it hits you so hard when they're gone.

You have just brought me back to the day we lost our sweet lasa, Malia. I have lost two "babies" in my lifetime and I still cry for them. I'm so sorry.
