Oh, I'm so sorry. But sounds as if he had a grand morning. A great memory forever.

I had to go through similar with my Greyhound Zara - it hurts, but you gave him the best quality of life you could....

So very sorry for your loss of Jake. My most recent heart kitty died in the same circumstances. Its such a surreal moment, knowing that you may not be quick enough to help end their struggle Ernie died in my arms on the stairs to the E Clinic on a busy Labor Day Sunday night). But you were right there with him to send him on over the Bridge, and this it be good.

Thank you, everyone, for your sympathy. It helps, which is odd. You're more than pixels on a screen.
I don't remember where I read it first, it might've been here, but there's a quote that resonates with me:
I'd like to be the person my dogs think I am.
"It came to me that every time I lose an animal they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new animal who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be animal and I will become as generous and loving as they are."

I'm so sorry St.Germain. After losing our little dog in December, I know the pain all too well. We knew for six months that he was slipping away, but it wouldn't have mattered how much time we had to prepare - it still hurt terribly. (((((HUGS))))) to you in your time of sorrow.
I hope your new boy turns out to be a wonderful fellow for you - just give your heart time to heal and make a whole new place for him to fill.
Don't get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

StG, I feel the same way. The people who truly care on this forum are MUCH more than pixels on the screen. RIP, Jake - I know that my Mom's good Dobergirl Ruby met him at the bridge. Hugs.
What's wrong with you?? Your cheese done slid off its cracker?!?!

I meant to reply to this and forgot. Drago is already such a love. He's such a good dog (except for being a chewer, which I'll have to control) and so good with the the other animals.

I'm sorry to read of your Jake's passing. Dobermans have a VERY special place in my heart.
May my six, Darnit Garnet, Moose, Kira Little Girl, Peter, Tuppence, and my first Doberman and dearly beloved boy, Dante', welcome Jake to Doberman Heaven.
