Just back from the vet to have our little fella, Gizmo put down.
Gizmo was a little shih tzu/bishon mix and a total ahole when it came to barking at...EVERYTHING.
He was suffering from kidney failure...but lived a wonderful 9 years since we found him in a rescue as a puppy and took him and his brother home with us.
We spoiled the hell out of him...and he got to spend a great life full of love...and lots of doggie treats for always being a good boy.

I never thought I'd miss his constant yapping...but I sure miss it right now.

Rest In Peace, Gizmo.

TY.
We should all strive to be as great as our dogs think we are. (Don't remember who said that).
But, dogs are special.

It's hard when you get attached. I had to put my massive yellow lab "Lancelot" down many years ago. I had to take off work the rest of the day. I told myself then, i wouldn't get as attached like I did.

Sorry man, hang on to the fond memories for sure!

Sorry to hear that, it's a tough deal.

Take solace in the fact that he lived a better life due yourself and your family.

Giz stopped eating and wasn't responsive for several days...but when I was in the vet's room with him...and while he was under the first dose of anethesia and semi-conscious...someone out in the lobby brought in a loud mewling cat...he raised his head from the table and the last thing he heard was the thing he loved barking at incessantly.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is wonderful that you gave him such a great life. That is the best we can do for them, in return for all the love they give us.

Is his brother still with you? How is he doing?

When we lost our bulldog, our boxer was there, so she "knew" he was gone. But she moped around the house for almost a week.

Gizmo was the runt of the litter rescue of 7...and always small and sickly.
His brother was, by far, the largest and most robust...and remains healthy and active.

It's funny...they've been together since the womb...and, from his actions, I could tell Gizmo's brother was aware his brother was dying. The past few days, he would stay distant from him.

Im so sorry for your loss. I wish dogs could live 80 years. I know what you feel like. A year ago, everything was fine here. Just after Christmas Bruno became sick. X-rays showed an enormous tumor next to his heart. We had to let him go only weeks later. He was Baby's mate, and my best friend. I never had a dog like him before. I think about him every day

Ugh, I am very sorry for your loss buddy. My wife and I went through that process almost three years ago to the day and we still aren't totally 100%. By far the worst day of my life, it still makes me emotional to this day. I have had the pleasure of making many friends in this life, she was by far the best one I ever had, we were inseparable. I really feel your pain. My soul hurts for you.
