    Salute to Irate 4x4 dogs

    He was an Australian Shepard we got as a runt at 8 weeks old.
    He was a great companion and enjoyed being with the family, no matter what we did. When he was younger He went everywhere. In the summer he'd ride in the boat all day, and the winter it was in the desert riding in the truck. He was a trooper and up for anything we did as long as he was with us.
    The wife works out of the house, and as he got older and more mature he became her buddy, He became an inside dog, and they fell into a rhythm , learning each others patterns. Being there for each other. The bond with her became very close over the last few years. It's been great to see them together.
    Old age had caught up with him, his bright eyes showing age, the sharp contrast in his coat now shadowed with grey, his footing not as sure.

    vaya con dios Blue.

    Added a pic of the same two many years ago. They really were buddies till the end.
    I hate to start this dog thread too, but we have to remember our companions that are no longer with us.

    Stingray, Im sorry you had to be the leader for this, and I wish you and your family peace in your loss. I hope he went without pain.

    Ive had humans betray me all my life, but never a dog. I guess thats why I am such a dog lover.

    RIP Blue

    Thanks for moving this, I thought about it and opted not to start a new thread.

    The decision has been on the table for awhile, we have a friend that had a dog that was having seizures and debilitating health issues and we knew that was not what we wanted, as any older dog He had issues, but still manageable. Planning a date to do it was tough. The fact that the days( actually one day) are numbered seemed mean, But he didn't know.
    Fortunately the night before and day of was perfect, He slept through the night peacefully at the threshold of the bedroom door ( in his younger days he played guard and would bark but age and hearing lose has changed that)
    The day of was reminiscing and relaxing. His last 6 years or so he's been an inside dog, content to be at the wife's side truly her companion and tolerating two house cats tormenting him.

    He more than fulfilled his part in our pack, I just hope we fulfilled our part.

    Thanks again for the kind words

      I had to put down Pete this morning . Was pretty tough to bring him in but cancer kicked his little ass and now he has no more pain.

      he was about 11, he loved fetching frisbees and whatever you’d throw out to him. Awesome dog, I’ll miss him a lot. Rip buddy.

              Here is a few pictures of my best bud Spanky. He was a G/S & St. Bernard mix. Dude was 160lbs of pure lap dog that loved everyone. I got him at 5 weeks old and he was my sidekick for 13 years. The hardest thing I have ever done in my life was bring him to the vet to be put down. Even 2 years later just posting this is making my allergies act up..... Miss you buddy.

                Put my guy down last year. Worst day of my life. Bar none. I haven't had a good night's sleep since. I think about him constantly.

                  I never understood what it was like to put down a dog (my dad handled that when we were kids). It is utterly awful. I'm sorry for everyones' loss. It's a hole that really never gets filled again.

                  My old husky that we put down this year is my avatar. I miss that pain in the ass, and this thread is really bringing back those memories. Ugh.

                    It sucks. I don't know how others are doing, but I haven't been the same since.

                        And I wouldn't change a minute of it. Every new post in this thread brings back fond memories and good times.

                          We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

                              My two favorite people. Had to put my old girl down yesterday. The hardest thing I have ever done. I have had to put others down but she was the best dog I’ve ever had.
