He's the dog in the photo. He had a stomach tumor and we had to put him down today. 17 years old. You're a good boy, Jaxon, a very good boy.

Losing a family pet is one of the toughest experiences. My kindest thoughts sent to you.

My heart goes out to you Jeff. About this time last year we had to put down, Adare, our Westie in my avatar ......was also 17. That is a long life for a large dog, which yours looks to be. I know he will always have a special place in your heart. I always shed more than a few tears for mine.

Black bews, that really stings for a long, long time.
Hugs and condolences. You gave the dog a good shot. What a ride!

I lost my pet fish about a decade ago when I was a young lad. It was pretty sad :-(

I'm really sorry that your family is going through this. The only problem with dogs is that we don't get to keep them long enough.

We lost my sweet little 16 year old yorkie/silky in May and I still shed tears for her. I basically stole her from my wife. That sweet (and stubborn) little dog loved me and I loved her. We were inseparable. 

Each pet is special in their own way. They can never be replaced. In time, hopefully you will look back, think about him, smile and feel joy. It took months for me to do that.

As sad as I've been over the loss of my girl,  having her was absolutely worth it and I'm sure you feel the same about Jaxon.

You have my sincere condolences.

So sorry to hear this. Our pets live in our memories more firmly than one would expect. Each one is a distinct personality and there's a special bond. It's been two-and-a-half years since Angus, our Sheltie, went, and he didn't even make ten. The Mrs. is talking about replacing him but, if she does, we'll find that the new dog "isn't the same".

Treasure your memories.

My sympathies. That’s the downside of pet ownership. Fifteen cats have shared my life in the last 42 years; two currently. So I well know the feeling.

Thank you all for the kind words. He was a small dog, dachshund mix. Short in stature, but big in appetite.

Very sorry to hear that Jeff. It's never easy, but after all of the loyalty they show us, at least we can do right by them at the end and prevent any suffering.

My thoughts are with you during this trying time. Pets are part of the family and one misses them terribly but knows they did what was best for the dog.

Been there, done that, it isn't easy. Try to remember all the good times, the love and loyalty of a very special pet.

I've noticed that a lot of people really love their dachshunds. They must tend to have good personalities.  A mix is always good, because you might avoid some health problems.

I've always had mixed dogs before. My little dog that I lost in May was a yorkie/silky mix. Those two breeds are closely related and mine looked pure silky. It's odd to see so many dogs that look nearly identical to her.

We got a new Heinz 57 puppy and I posted about her. It has helped up a lot, but everyone is different. She has made our home a happier place. 

My wife still wants to get another Silky that looks like my dog did and I'm just not sure how I feel about that.

Very sad for your loss Jeff. I miss my old dogs more than many of the people I've lost over the years. They truly are special and the best example of unconditional love I know.

Its always a sad time and thoughts of never getting another is normal. My wife and I and family have always had pets. Most were rescued pets. When our 16 year old beagle had to be put down it was the end of the world. But soon with-in a month we looked at each other and said....”this house is too damned empty”.....so we immediately rescued another little beagle and shortly after that we rescued a Dachshund mix......they will never replace the beagle but they sure in hell have their own place in our hearts as warm......no regrets. there are untold thousands of dogs and cats out there that need a forever home.....many are being put down in kill shelters....if I were a billionaire all my money would be spent to rescue everyone I could.................

PS their pictures are on my site.

Sorry to hear that, having a dog that long is enjoyable, having a kid that long you’re ready to kick them out, glad you had a long run with him

Losing a good pet is a tragedy. Many dogs are better people than some humans.

You have my sincerest sympathy. Losing a pet is sometimes harder than losing a family member. My black cat, Angel, is almost 17, and I'm thankful for very day that he's still here with me, as I know his days, as are all of ours, are numbered.
