My dog didn't die, but he did have to have his eye removed due to a growth inside the eyeball.

Really glad I didn't have a dog die when I was a kid. The first dog my parents had passed when I was 4 and I don't remember the dog at all. The second dog they had died when I was 19. It sucked, but I'm sure it's not as much as it would have if I was 10.

That sorta sucks for the dog, but it's kind of awesome at the same time because now you have a pirate dog. Does he have to wear a patch?

No, he just looks like he's constantly winking at you

I have two dogs, one we rescued when she was a puppy 2 1/2 years ago and another we rescued last month who is 1 1/2 years old. The thought of either of them being old and dying makes me tear up just thinking about it.

One of the first thoughts I had when my wife was first pregnant was how old the kid would be when the dog died. Probably going to be right at the sweet spot of old enough to be devastated and young enough to not have great control over her emotions.

I have an 11year old cocker with an enlarged heart and a 4 year old girl and six year old boy. When the dog goes in the next year or two it's going to suck hard.

Someone counteract this sadness with a post your pet thread in social and let's look at some doggies

My dog is 12, and my kids are 11 and 9, so they've literally never known life without the dog

My parents' dog just started having hip/nerve issues earlier this year; she can still get around well, but had to noticeably slow things down or else she'd get these spasms where her hind legs would just give out on her. Could be a LOT worse, but it really hit me that she's almost 8 and how quickly that time has seemed to fly by.

I don't know I got my first dog when I was 4 and she died when I was 17. I kind of think it would have been easier when I was 10.

Man, my brother and I lucked out; we had a beloved golden retriever, but ultimately had to give her away because we were moving back overseas. We gave her to our uncle and she lived a happy, long life for almost another decade and when she finally went we were able to handle it. Otherwise we lost it over nearly every other pet we had that passed away over the years, be it fish, hamster or cat. A dog might have killed us.

Yeah our dog was 11 and our son is 9. She's his best friend. He put her collar on one of his toys which seems to help him but makes my wife and me teary whenever we hear it jingle.

We thought that after our last dog died, but it ended up lasting about 3 days. But part of that was because our other dog was a wreck. Not having that same energy in the house was intolerable, and a puppy was great medicine.

And not to be any more depressing, but your comment about the jingling tags reminded me that one of the real daggers was the first couple days coming home from work and not hearing the jangle of dog tags coming toward the door, but silence instead.

It always amazes me that my parents got their current dog over 9 years ago. Seems like yesterday we went home to visit to see the puppy. Ditto for our dog. I always want to say she's only two or three and then I realize it's been 5 1/2 years.
