    Default RE: TRF . . . sorry to hear about your dog

    Steve . . . how's the family coping with the loss of your dog? Also, were you able to bury her even though the ground is still hard?

    Yeah, that's rough losing a dog you've had for so long. I had a few dogs that I was pretty close to that aren't around anymore.

    Default Sorry to hear

    I can imagine how tough it is to lose a family pet. I know I'll be heartbroken when I lose Jock. Unfortunately dogs just don't live long enough for my taste.
    Happy Trails!

    Thank you for asking FFJ and to you others for your kind words. Families fine, the 5 year old is still a little confused but has finally come up with something she can accept. Yes, managed to dig a suitable grave with pick axe and shovel, frost was only several inches think. We will miss the "Maggie" the dog but she will always have a special place in our hearts.

    Thanks Again

    We also have springer spaniels, a pair and they are like members of the family. I know we'd be lost without them and understand what you're going thru as we've lost family pets in the past. Our heartfelt condolences to your whole family Steve, especially the kids.
    What if the Hokey Pokey is what its all about?

    Default I Have Poodle Mixes

    Sorry about your loss. My oldest is going to be 10 this year. All my dogs are poodle mix, I have bad allergies. My mother has a 'full bread' toy poodle thats 14, don't think she will be along much longer. My family has had to bury many critters, last couple years we lost two pigmy goats.

    Default Sorry for your loss.....

    I had a beagle once for 17 years.....it's difficult losing a pet. I've been lucky, though; many dogs and cats we've had, have been with us for ages before they go. It's too bad they can't keep goin' forever.

    My condolences......
