I was 15 when my dog passed too and it was heart wrenching. Same breed as the current mutt and he was 15 too. I went a couple years in between and my ex found 2 year old Sammy at the rescue and I couldn’t let him go. now Samson is 12 and if the past is any indication I should have about another 2 years and 51 weeks left before the last week of age getting the best of him. Hopefully some more than that.
My 16 year old is devastated. He grew up with her
My 13 year old Springer Spaniel developed SARDS at 8 years old. Still gets around.
That's one thing about dogs that is a tough pill to swallow. They don't live long enough. If they lived 25 years or something like that, it's at least someone who will know me both young and old, but that's not the way it is. Still the happiness I get back is worth it.Devastating. As much as dogs are kickass and they are, they depart us too soon.
