I’m so sorry for your loss, David. Goldies are such lovable dogs. My favorite breed.

David, I share your pain and grief, yesterday I had our chocolate lab put down, she was 15, and friday night couldn’t get up, and was in obvious pain. I knew the time was coming soon, but as you said, it still hits us so hard. I buried her close by my shop, I start the marker for her grave tomorrow, and her pictures to frame for the wall. Angel loved us with all her heart, just as we gave her ours. I’m very sorry for your loss.

So very, very sorry, Brad. Dogs bring so much joy into our lives. It’s one of nature’s cruelest tricks that we only get to have them in our lives for 10 or 15 years.

A wise man once told me that the only thing that can (in time) fill that gaping hole in your heart is a puppy. Don’t wait any longer than you have to. It’s what Sadie would have wanted for you.

Just recently lost our oldest at 14. Thankfully the others are doing well. I still look for her at times. The oldest remaining is nearly deaf which has been really calming for her. Now she will go out into the garage and sit with me when I am working where previously the noise would really upset her.

That really sucks. Dogs can bring so much to our lives. I know that mine does. There is a book by the author John Katz, called “Going Home” about coping with the loss of a pet. Maybe worth a glance, if you feel so inclined. Don’t ever forget the joy that she brought to your life. Take care.

Sorry about Sadie Brad. We have a Black Lab named Phoebe. Thought we were going to lose her in April. Turns out at 10 years she is diabetic. I was prepared for the worst, but with insulin twice daily she has come around, so I know the heartache of losing a dog. Our last Lab died at 10. My thoughts are with you and I gave Phoebe a hug.

Dave,

So sorry that you’ve lost Sadie. I still hurt when I remember when we lost my great friend, the giant yellow Lab, Bailey. In my case, I hung on to him for too long; I couldn’t let him go.

But I’m so glad for our years together, and I see that you too have known that joy. I cherish those memories daily, and pray that you will always enjoy yours.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you heal and know peace soon.

I’m very sorry for your loss. Pets hold a special place in our hearts, and it’s never easy to let them go. Though I don’t have a dog anymore, I’ll make sure I give my shop cats a few pats for Sadie. Hope you don’t mind a cat guy chiming in…

Sadie sure looks like she was a gem…

I watched your entire video and it reminds me so much of our Skipper. Especially the last scene where she’s begging for another toss on the water toy. Skipper’s just going on four and I get choked up to think that he could be half gone :^(

I’ll give him an extra 20 chucks with the tennis ball tonight (Heck…. maybe some gravy on his kibble as well) and let him know that his distant cousin has past.

Be consoled (if possible) with the knowledge that you gave her a good home and obviously showered her with love.

Brad,
I lost a chocolate lab (Buddy) after only 6-1/2 years to cancer. A yellow lab before him. (14 years) There are no words for it, just healing time.
All the best.
