My thoughts are with you. I understand how painful it can be to lose a pet.
What a beautiful puppy.

Losing a hound companion is tough. I think that was the only time anyone ever saw me cry in public.

He is so gorgeous. I remember your apprehension that this time would come, and I wish you peace and the best of memories. He is certainly without pain, and in great company now. A piece of my heart gets taken every time a loved one goes - furbabies definitely included - but all the pieces will join again one day. It's worth it to enjoy the time we do have with them, I think... but I'm so sorry for your loss.

Thank you to you all for the kind wishes. It has been just awful. He'd been unable to walk without his wheelchair for the past few months and I spent just about all my time caring for him. I miss him terribly.

Back when he was well, we would turn the lawn sprinklers on for him and he used to run around the grass biting the sprinklers, getting soaking wet. He barked in his sleep. He would sneak into the strawberry patch and eat the strawberries off of the plants. He would come to me after he ate his dinner, get right into my face and burp. On summer nights we would turn on his fan and he would lay right in front of it. One time I forgot to turn it on and he barked at me.

If I was petting Hoover instead of him, he would glare at me and sigh loudly. He loved stuffed toys and he would collect them all and put them in his bed. Sometimes his bed would be so full of toys he couldn't get into bed. He was so much a part of every single day, he brought such joy and laughter and asked for nothing but a good dinner. It didn't even have to be that good of a dinner as long as he thought it was larger than Hoover's dinner.

As difficult as it is for you, I enjoy hearing about his personality. I have an older dog and I dread what the future holds for him. I can sense your loss in your words and even though it is sad, you do have some good memories, hold onto them.
