Wes, sorry man. I have a dog about that age, and I'm dreading that day.

Sorry, Wes. We did that when I was a kid and it was awful.

We are headed out in an hour or so to send off our little pup, Mia, who we've had for about 14 years. It has been the hardest decision we've ever had to make, and we are so utterly exhausted from weeping. Since we have been unable to have children, Mia has filled the void better than anyone could have ever hoped or imagined. She has done nothing but love us every minute of every day. She used to go on hunger strikes for the sitter when we would leave town for the weekend, she would always be in the window watching for our return from work or wherever. 

 

We sure spoiled her......of course we spoiled her. Eggs for breakfast, chicken breast for dinner and homemade peanut butter/banana icecream for dessert every day. She slept where she wanted, whether in the middle of the hall (making us step over) or on my side of the bed (refusing to let me in), but hey, you kinda let a 95 pound alpha dog sleep where she wants. 

 

She has seen her share of medical problems, as many of you know. She has a prosthetic eye...and is naturally blind in the other. She survived breast cancer (yes, that's a thing), she's had all sorts of liver, kidney and urinary issues and probably suffers from mild cushings. Through all that, we were never greeted with less than a loving growl, warm kiss and a cheerful wag.

 

This is going to suck so bad.

 

 

 

We got lucky with some sunshine this week and had a chance to get a few more photos of her. She's always loved the camera.

 

 

 

Here she is with her best buddy, shortly after Holly got her.

 

 

She told me she wanted Weber-grilled T-Bone for her last meal, and that is just what she got.

 

She ate so fast, I could not get a still pic. lol.

 

 

 

See you later, old friend. We love you so much.

 

Had a scare with our dog a couple of weeks ago, so I understand. Hope it gets better, Wes!

Oh goddamn, Wes. I know what it means to have an animal become truly a member of your family. I'm so sorry for you guys. This is an awful thing to have to do, but I know you guys have made the right decision for such a good good girl. So long, Mia.

Sorry Wes, my sincere condolences. I dread when that day comes for me. I like dogs so much more than people for the most part, that stpries like this are heartbreaking. I'm sure that she knows shes loved and I'm sure she loved her farewell feast. Prayers out, and I don't often pray.
post #16207 of 51274

So sorry Wes.

post #16208 of 51274
😢 sorry Wes. Truly a terrible thing to go through.
post #16209 of 51274

Sorry for your loss, Wes. This is brutal. I hope your memories of her bring you some comfort during your grieving process.

out in the field - what the hell causes this kind of stippling/puckering under the lapels? bad pressing? it's on a staple canali navy suit but this looks wrong...

post #16211 of 51274
Wes I'm really sorry. Had to do this last spring unexpectedly and it was terrible. I'm sure you gave her a wonderful life!
post #16212 of 51274
Sorry Wes, that's truly awful for you all. Your post brought a tear to my eye.

That's normal on nicer suits.  Those are the stitching done to build the lapel roll.
