    Oh Flygirl, I'm so so sorry for your loss. Oscar sounded like such a character! What a wonderful second chance you gave him and what a dignified, pain-free passing you were able to give him. It's absolutely heartbreaking choosing to put your best buddy to sleep but you did it because you love him and wanted what was best for him.
    Rest in Peace my beautiful little Bonnie

    I'm so sorry. *big hugs* It's devastating to lose a dear pet. You gave him a wonderful life.

    I'm so sorry for your furbaby, Flygirl. He was lucky to have you. Don't feel guilty, animals don't like to show weakness and it is easy to miss things.

    So sorry for your loss Flygirl. My limited experience with death of any kind leads me to believe that guilt ought to be one of the stages of grief. No matter what we do, how much time we give, how much we say to our loved ones, we always feel we could have said/done more. It's not true of course, especially in your case. You were an angel to that dog, and he went before the suffering became horrible. Hugs to you.

    So sorry for your loss, Flygirl. You came along when Oscar needed an angel, and he gave you ten years of love and happiness. I'm so sorry it had to end like that....but how would anyone know that unless you had been through it before? You did fine by him and the right thing. I am glad you passed the info along to us. Take care!

    So sorry too, Effie. I am in the same boat as you are now,...with our old Jack Russell. My kids won't hear of putting her down and I know she is getting worse and slipping away. I don't want to find her REALLY bad one night and in pain, and then have to do the same thing anyway. I'd rather do it now before she is suffering and having a painful and tramatic death. Uggg!! The whole thing is sooooo damn sad....

    I'm sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet.

    Flygirl, I know how tough this is. Oscar didn't know true love until he came to you. He died knowing he was loved. I know that doesn't help but its huge gift you gave him. I think you're wonderful.

    So sorry, Effie. It's a tough thing to go through. Especially the older ones who have been through so much with you. Oscar was with me in my wild and single days and watched me bring both my babies (now 6 and 4) home.

    Thank you all very much for the kind words. He was such a funny dog. He was missing his front leg, and, despite being neutered, he never lost the urge to, um, breed. When he was younger he'd walk around humping the furniture until he lost his balance and fell over with this "god I hate life" look on his face. No one ever accused him of being beautiful, but he was definitely one of God's special creatures. My six year old daughter actually said, "I bet in Heaven, Oscar's grill is fixed." Wow.
