On Wednesday we had to say goodbye to our lovely Milo, our blue roan cocker spaniel, aged 15. He was a wonderful companion, a true gentleman and best friend. He loved the Moho, and when we started loading he would get in the van and sit and wait impatiently for us to go. We retired last April and spent the summer touring around Scotland, so he's had a good last year. Took him for his pet passport in September, ready to go to France for the first time. Sadly he started losing weight and gradually going downhill, especially since Christmas, tried everything to get him to eat. Then his back end went, so we knew the time had come. The house is empty, a and when we go away the walks will seem pointless without him by our side. This is dog number ten, how many times can a heart break?

Sorry to hear of your loss, always a sad time, and you know when you first get your pet, that day will come, but they give so much pleasure and joy and ask for so little in return.

Have had to do it twice, and will have to do it again with our present lad.
Brings a lump to my throat thinking of your pain.

I came into this world with nothing, and I still have most of it left !

Sorry to hear that your lovely dog has crossed the rainbow bridge. It seems a pity that they are so short lived. Walks do see a bit pointless without a dog. xx

Sorry to hear about Milo, Our old boy is nearly 13 whilst he is still fairly healthy his back end is getting a bit wobbly, we've had him from 11weeks.

I saw a last will and testament of a dog, it was on a dogs home website, in the will the dog who passed on has left his nice soft bed and all the love in the hearts of his owners to a homeless dog in the shelter.

It brought a tear to my eye.

My heart sinks when ever I hear of the loss of anyones dog. We have 2 dogs at he moment. We treat them as if they are are grand kinds (We don't have any of them yet)

But, think how many happy days you have given to your dog over the years and how many happy days he has given you. Think of all the good times you have had together.

I bet you Milo would not change a day and he had 15 happy doggy years.

A really sad time, but some precious memories to hold on to.
