13 1/2 years ago I took a lab sheperd mix out of a box at a flea market. Yesterday I lost her.
It really hurts to have lost her. Don"t know how to get over this one.

Sure are sorry for your loss.
I have an 11yr old lab that is headed downhill now. Not ever easy to lose a friend.

Find you a nice puppy and see how fast you feel better. Don't think of it as a replacement. Just a thought, but if it's not expected to do heavy work, a smaller lap size (schnauzer or some other terrier type) will fit the recliner, seat hump, and tractor fender nicely and make a willing and able squirrel hunting companion.....

Sorry to hear that. That hurts. I have a 13 yr old lab/ches cross that I can see really slowing down. I dread that day, too. Hope you get through it, and find another one when you are ready.

5 years ago, some folks with a 10 year old australian sheperd bought a puppy from us (another aussie) because the old dog was slowing down and they hopedher character would rub off on the new puppy before she died.... Puppy perked the old dog up and she's still in pretty decent shape for her age just a little grey in the face and getting pudgy...........

Always tough to loose a pet. They are more family than just a dog. Try to remember all the good times you shared and the companionship he gave you. You will meet again,..since all dogs go to Heaven.

We had to put our 10year old Chow put to sleep that had stomach cancer in 2010, so when we got the news we bought another Chow pup. She is now 2 years old and we had the 10 year old cremated. Hal

Four years ago we lost out 13 YO Golden Retriever. I also lost my BC-Aussie mix (rescued him in 2001 and he really wanted a family, but thats another story)when I divorced my wife and he was 10 then and she refuses to tell me about him or if he survived the move from his mountains in NC to a condo in southern FL. He was a daddy's dog.

Why loosing a companion dog can be worse than loosing a human freind is that they are non-judgmental. They don't care if you are rich or poor, man or woman, black, white or green, fat or thin, handsome or ugly, young or old, smart or stupid they are happy to see you. You give them a little food and shelter and they give you everything. Then when you least expect it they will sneak up and steal your heart.

Our dog was 17 years old when we had him put down. We decided then not to get another dog as kids were gone and we were planning to retire in a couple of years. Been retired for 15 years and still miss him.

Been through it twice. Both times I couldn't hardly see through the tears when I hauled it out to the field to bury it. But I got over it. The last time it happened I swore off getting another dog just to shelter me from going through the emotions of having to bury it, but this chocolate lab landed in my lap five years ago so someday I'll have to do it all over again.

Very sorry for your loss, that's real tough. I had a lab/shepherd mix, he was a great dog. The toughest, gentlest dog you could imagine, with a heart so big I thought it might bust out of his chest sometimes.

But I feel sorrier for those who never had a dog who was a friend like yours.

There are lots of good dogs out there needing a home. Don't do it for you, do it for them. But it'll turn out good for you too...
