He was 10, and had seizures his whole life (on meds since birth), lived a great life, so that's what matters.
I'm very sorry to hear that. Our dog died not long ago as well and it's a hard thing to deal with. Hope you get through it well.

So sorry box. Hope you're alright man. Losing a pet is one of the worst feelings ever.

Thanks guys, it was kinda rough. Buried him this morning. I think we gave him the best life possible, it was just his time I guess.

@box:

God summoned a beast from the field and he said, "Behold Man, created in my own image. Therefore, adore him.

You shall protect him in the wilderness, shepherd his flocks, watch over his children, accompany him wherever he may go…even unto civilization.

You shall be his companion, his ally, his slave. "To do these things" God said, "I endow you with these instincts uncommon to other beasts: Faithfulness, Devotion, and understanding surpassing those of man himself.

Lest it impair your courage, you shall never foresee your death. Lest it impair your loyalty, you shall be blind to the faults of man. Lest it impair your understanding, you are denied the power of words.

Let no fault of language cleave an accord beyond that of man with any other beast or even man with man.

Speak to your master only with your mind and through your honest eyes. Walk by his side, sleep in his doorway, forage for him, ward off his enemies, carry his burdens, share his afflictions, love him and comfort him.

And in return for this, man will fulfill your needs which shall be only food, shelter, and affection. So be silent and be a friend to man. Guide him through the perils along the way to the land that I have promised him. This shall be your destiny and your immortality. So sayeth the Lord. And the dog heard and was content.

After dog understood... then GOD turned to man and said, "Behold, this is your partner. You shall worship him as he worships you.

It is your duty to be kind to this gentle beast and know that in his mute way, he loves you. Your purpose is to care for him, through youth and age, until he can serve no more.

Understand that your final act of love will take courage. Spare your partner any pain. Save his dignity.

Know that he will never lie to you, he will always understand you and that his love will be blind. You are commanded to use him in service to mankind. I have placed him here as a guardian angel for you, to watch over you and care for you. He is from heaven, therefore divine.

Let his character speak to your heart and be the example for you to follow. He shall fulfill your inequities. He shall be everything humanity strives to be: Honest, Loyal, Kind in Heart, and Strong in Spirit.

Therefore, you shall call him PARTNER and best friend

I have lost a few dog through the years and it has never been easy, I am sorry for your loss, this always makes me feel sad and happy at once if that makes any sense at all, death is not always a bad thing.

Box, it may sound ridiculous to you now but, get a puppy.

When I lost my best friend ever of 10 years, I felt some need to honor his memory. The thought of replacing him made me very sad. And so, I missed out on many years of man's best friend. My mistake.

Love that post Satori

I agree with Oldie. When my childhood Dog passed away in 2009, I was heartbroken and swore to never have another Dog. I felt like getting another dog was me trying to replace him and an insult.

My parents got another dog 6 months later and I wanted nothing to do with him. Not maliciously, I just didn't want to get close to their dog in the way I was close with Buzz.

I stayed in that mind frame for 6 months, until one day when my Mother was walking him she injured herself and couldn't walk him anymore, so I said I'd do it until she was healthy again. 18 months later, he's my dog and still living with me and his pictures have been spammed in here.

He'll never replace my first dog, ever. To replace a pet is impossible, but I love him just as much now and he's my best friend.

This post may sound weird and corny to non Dog owners, but I guarantee every dog owner has a very similar story. I missed out on 6 months with my Hound out of guilt.
