    Sorry dude. I have to call my vet today as I think it's time for my 14.5 year old lab. Life is just getting harder and harder for her each week. Feel like it's time for me to make the call.

    Thanks gents. It's never easy but I swore I wouldn't make her suffer for my selfishness. She had the normal old dog problems but she got super sick really quickly. We could have treated her and she might have recovered but I didn't want her to suffer anymore. The hardest decision I have ever had to make. She went very peaceful as I loved on her and I sobbed like a baby. This love shit sucks sometimes.

    Just buried our beagle this morning. Had been sick, took a turn for the worst last night. He passed in my wife's lap on the way to the vet.

    Two dogs in a year and a half. Might be done for a while.

    Sorry to hear that. Such a hard thing to do.

    My dogs are young now, but 2026 is going to be a shitty year

    Damn, it really sucks, but how awesome are dogs to elicit such strong emotions. Had to put my 10 year old boxer down a couple weeks ago. Got him right when I graduated high school and he was my shadow every day. Will be getting another dog soon to spoil the crap out of.

    Our dog died about 3 months ago at 9 years old right after being diagnosed with diabetes. We caught it too late. Had to put our 10 year old cat to sleep on Thursday with cancer. Waited as long as we could. Probably at least a day too late. The last night was a bad one. Been rough around here. :to:

    I had to put my 13 year old golden retriever down about 1 1/2 years ago and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I still think about him daily, especially when I walk in the door. He was my first dog and he was better than I could have ever dreamed. He had a great personality, was smart and very obedient.

    A good story about him was when we gave out bones to him and my wife's dog. My wife had a lab mix from college when we got married and the dog would always run to the door barking at any noise he thought might mean someone was at the door. Jackson was smart enough to figure out that when we gave both dogs a bone, he could growl like there was someone at the door and the other dog would drop his bone and run to the door barking at nothing. Jackson would then get up and take the other bone and lay back down with both. When the other dog would return to get his bone, Jackson would exert his dominance and keep both. It was funny to see and almost became a party trick to show people.

    Just had to put down my wife's dog that she got while she was a junior at Clemson. Completely heartbreaking. I loved the dog too and he was only 9 years old. Poor guy was born with bad kidneys. Clemson needs to win this one tonight for me.

    Sorry about being a bummer. Just had to put it somewhere.

    What a strange day. Complete roller coaster. Clemson found a way to make one of my wife and I's worst days one of the best at the same time. I cried twice for two different reasons yesterday. I'd write Dabo and thank him but I'd feel weird about it. I'm sure he knows how much this means to all of us.

    I found out tonight that my wife's dog has kidney failure. She's at the emergency vet, and we're hoping they can flush out her kidneys and get them working. I'm not optimistic...sucks.

    Yeesh. Sorry to hear.

    To lighten the mood a little, this walked into my office the other day. As a refresher, Shep isn't a black lab, he's half-German Shepard half-Weimaraner. He's territorial and capable of biting a stranger's face off if they dare enter his house, but quite patient with his 6 and 4 year old girls.

    I am in the process of looking for a Boykin Spaniel pup. Do any of y'all have any breeder connections or recommendations?

    I got Riggs from the Lesesnes in Due West, SC (search William Lesesne on Facebook). He is a great dog, very natural hunting instincts. His only fault is separation anxiety (he's scratched up a few doors when locked in a room). Here he is on his 4th birthday this past September. For his 5th birthday he is getting a human sibling which is going to rock his world.

    Do you have any other contact info? By the looks of it, he doesn't check his Facebook much.
