    My heart goes out to you. It's hard getting it done, but I'm sure in both our cases it ended the suffering.

    I didn't know if I would be able to go with the wife to put him down, but I managed. The wife, I, and one of our sons were there when the vet put him to sleep. In retrospect, I'm glad I went, and was there with him when he drew his last breath. He was with his family, and I hope our presence made it easier for him.

    I'm sure our dog was in pain although the vet said he had lost feeling his back side. He stopped getting up to get treats like potatoes and carrots, as well as he also wasn't going at his food the way he used to. That's when I knew it was time and wife made the call.

    Been almost 2 days now. The excruciating grief is almost gone.

    Yesterday was a perfect day for the water, but I didn't even care. The summer is just starting and there will be plenty of days to get the boat out.

    I just want to say thanks for the support. It really helped a lot.

    Had to put his brother down tonight. He lasted almost a year longer. They're back together again. Saving grace was believing his brother was going to meet him on the other side. These guys gave us so much love, and I hope we gave them a good home while they were here.

    An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice - grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on.

    They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

    "What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If He can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

    "Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but, the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

    So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside.

    "Scuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

    "Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

    "You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

    "Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

    "No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in. We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."

    The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

    "You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

    "That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but, then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"
