    Sad day for my family and I. Today we had to lay to rest our Female Chocolate Labrador. We adopted her when she was 2 from a shelter and she lived to be 14. I haven’t cried this much in years. Love your pets time goes by fast.

    Sorry about that, Shane. It's always tough. Definitely not looking forward to saying goodbye to mine when the time comes. One of the worst things to go through.

    It might sound a little cold, but getting another does help. You have the joy and companionship that one will bring you while keeping alive and respecting the memory of the ones that came before.

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    It’s so sad as they are so loyal to the family and ask for very little in return....

    I am sorry hate to hear as I am a proud Chocolate Lab owner. Just remember you gave that dog a great life and she appreciated it. I swear dogs from shelters even appreciate it a little more. All dogs go to heaven.

    My deepest condolences. Grief is the price we pay for their love. Been there done that and it is always hard. It leaves big hole in your heart that never fully closes.

    Damn, I hate these threads. Sorry man, I feel your pain, been there done that and it is by far the worst ever.:( For a lab to live to 14 it sounds like you gave her a great life, take solace in that.

    Sorry for your loss Namba. Having to say goodbye to our fur buddies is so heart breaking. I feel your loss. Cancer took my beautiful 11 yr. old chocolate Lab last Oct. and it still hurts from time to time, miss her so much. While no other dog can replace her your other dogs love can help ease the pain some but there is just no way around it, it hurts. I hope the joy of her memories soon replace the ache in your heart your feeling today. The lake with your family is a good way to adjust to the hurt your feeling.
