I have often posted asking for advice about my big golden retriever/collie Shadow's arthritis, and gotten such helpful responses. Over the past week, it got so he could hardly stand up, and we said goodbye to him today. The house is very empty. Tribble the Fat Corgi seems at a loss and keeps circling around.
I am so glad he is out of pain and swimming in a big lake somewhere.
Hugs from our Big (not fat ) Corgi, Gumby and us - it never is easy to lose one as special as your fuzzy baby. Be kind to yourself and Tribble and take time to grieve. We are slowly losing Gumby to DM, and will be in your position in a couple weeks. Not sure how our other Corgis, Millie and George, are going to handle it either.

What a beautiful dog he was. His soul shown right out of those lovely eyes of his. I know that you and your family, including Tribble, are hurting right now. I am sorry that it has to be so. As time passes, and the pain lessens (it never quite goes away), you will have a treasure trove of wonderful memories. I know that you will cherish them.
I am so very sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful boy. I will follow you soon enough. My old lady is 15 and hanging on to the rimadyl/tramadol train with her toenails. You loved him well. Godspeed sweet boy.
LOL. "Oui, I am ze chien de France!" That was when he was about three or four. He took the whole loaf of bread right off the counter in the kitchen and was playing keep-away with it. I think I ended up getting about half of it back from him. Isn't his expression so mischievous?
