Sad Day

Today is going to be a sad day. I think the time has come to put down my 14 year old Golden Retriever. He can't get up and seems in a lot of pain. His brown eyes are so gentle. I feel bad that I haven't spent enough time with him. I sure hope there is a dog Heaven.


  1. My prayers are with you, this is definitely one of the most difficult things to do in life. We put one of our dogs to sleep nearly 12 years ago and I still miss him. Now we have a 14 year old (knock wood he is an ox & healthy) and an 11 year old dog that are about in the same shape as yours or will be soon. Sending you prayers big time!

  2. Oh Catherine! I'm so sorry. I definitely know what you're going through. He is a wonderful sweet boy, and I know how much you will miss him. My thoughts are with your family.

    Love, Kristi

  3. Thank you guys! He went very peacefully. The vet actually came to our house. It feels very empty without him.

  4. Oh how sad!!!!!! I've had to do it many times and it just breaks my heart :(
