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.


Yeah, my brother got her before I even moved to Chicago, which doesn't even seem possible. Stupid time. I still think she's just a gigantic puppy.

14 2/3 years. It was a great run, old girl.

RIP Kiley!

Wish I never looked in the Rants forum. Worst thread ever (although I'm sure it helps to vent/grieve). I'm going to go wake up my dog and pet him forever now.

So sorry for your loss.

Had to put both of my 10 year old cats down. Cried like a bitch for days.

Potential rabies exposure for unvaccinated house cats.

Boy. Really hit me today as I was carving turkey and didn't have a dog to sneak bites to. It hits at the weirdest times.

Rob wrote:My parents' pugs are not having a good time the last 4 months. We nearly lost one when she reptured a disk in her back. Her hind legs were completely paralyzed. My folks took a gamble on surgery for her, and as luck would have it she's gotten pretty far in her recovery. It ain't pretty, but she can do almost everything she could before. But the second we start feeling good about her, her sister develops a nasty hacking cough. The vet says it's an enlarged heart... And since there's no fixing that, it basically means her time is running out.

Poor girls. They've been such good dogs.


Well, we just had to put down one of the pugs. Her name was Dylan. 14 years old.

I was on my way to an appointment and called my mom just to pass some time while driving in the car. She told me she thought Dylan's time was running out and she didn't know what to do. Poor thing couldn't sleep today, couldn't hold down any food, could barely drink water... heck, she was even having trouble breathing. I told her to take her to the vet and I would try to cancel my appointment and head out there -- if the vet could help, great. If he couldn't, we've known this time was coming for a while now -- and at least we'd get to say goodbye on our terms, without her being in any more pain.

But my guy couldn't reschedule. So I had to try to rush through the appointment and make a mad dash to the vet to say goodbye. I didn't make it in time... Sucks.
