Last 2 dogs we raised for Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Ragu, on the right, was medically released and adopted by an older couple. She is enjoying her life being spoiled and caring for the husband who was just diagnosed with terminal cancer. Linden, on the left, is still in training to be a guide dog. 71323EC6-D179-4A31-8B34-6001A4E27574.jpeg

My 16 year old is devastated. He grew up with her
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.
It never really hurts less, but at least they are a part of our lives for a while.

Albert, one smart dog. Blind now (SARDS), age 12, still enjoys being a dog. Sitting at my feet now. Other limiting factor in his life is the lack of opposable thumbs. Great at announcing delivery drivers, repair people, and ne'er-do-wells

My 13 year old Springer Spaniel developed SARDS at 8 years old. Still gets around.

Sucks....

Devastating. As much as dogs are kickass and they are, they depart us too soon.
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.

Trolling for likes on post #76. My wife is VERY upset other dogs are beating him out. Yes, I tried explaining was not a competition, and it was OK for me to like other dogs but that argument does not seem to be working as I am "helping his competition". She is asking members of the NES community to recognize his compassion and gentleness (actually, that part is true .... I love him, but he is indeed a pacifist).

someone had to say it.

you should really cut them off though...your dog will be happier believe it or not.
