Lost my buddy

Postby shorty » Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:35 am

Tuesday evening we had to put our 14 year old golden retriever to sleep , he was here the longest of any dog we ever had , he was one of the best we ever had. We're really going to miss him , his name was Hunter but I always called him shorty.

Sorry for your loss Shorty. Was there a year ago. It sucks but you move on. I just spread my old girls ashes on the prairie in South Dakota. Feels a lot better now!

Sorry to hear that, wife had her English Mastiff go out into the back yard and laid down and never woke up again. Like he knew it was time, she had that dog for 16 yrs.. I was like I didnt even know dogs could live that long. I thought like 10 yrs was old :(

Not trying to hijack your thread, but this caught my eye ...

I breed Mastiffs (dog shows, DNA tests, xrays, health tests, researching old pedigrees, imported semen, the whole deal...).

16yrs is quite impressive ... I'd love to see the pedigree. Feel free to PM me.

Oh I hate to hear that, my old Texas Heeler is showing his age more every day. He's 12 and has been the best at everything we needed in a dog. I feel for you, I'd feel lost
