Nearly 15 years ago a 6 week old puppy came into our lives and gave us many years of laughter, joy and love.

At 12:30 this morning my wife woke me while crying and holding our baby who was breathing her last breaths. Since the Mrs could not have any kids of her own, Annabelle was a special part of our lives.

RIP Annabelle, you will always be loved and never forgotten

Update: Thanks again everyone. She's back home safe and sound. We still have to add the picture to the front

Thank's everyone. I just made the appointment to have her cremated and put in a urn per the Mrs request. This weekend is going to be a sad one in the Flachief home :(

It's never easy, bro. I've said it before, I have an 8 year old Jack Russell and I am not looking forward to the day. I have no kids, and this is my first dog. It makes me sad every time I read one of these threads.

Thanks, she really was. She was our first pet that we got together. Although I've had and lost other pets, this one hurts a lot.

Exactly this. My wife and I have no children, so our dogs are our pride and joy. I wouldn't trade a minute of the memories we'll have from them to avoid the sorrow we're bound to have in just a few short years.

RIP to your pup, Flachief58 and prayers for you to cope with your loss.

I'm looking out my office window at the spot in the yard our dog took her last breath on Tuesday night. It's tough, man.

Hang in there, and remember the good times.

i lost my constant companion of 8 1/2 years a few months back and i still cry when i think about him...

we have another dog, but she was a late comer and just isn't the same as my lucky...

eventually, when i stop crying i want to get another puppy, but not just yet...

so sorry for your loss flachief58 and you too otwp...

Thanks again everyone. Shes at the crematory now, we can pick her up on tuesday. We still have 2 more dogs who are 13 and 14. I don't think we will be getting any more dogs for awhile once they are gone but, who knows for sure.

I never thought that the death of a pet would be so hard. I guess it's true that pets are family members whom you develop true feelings for (even moreso than a lot of people I've met)

Condolences to you who've lost your best friend.

2 hours ago, my GF and I walked into our house greeted happily by her tiny little dog, who she has had for 9 years.
2 min later the dog had, what I believe was a stroke, and/or heart attack. I've never seen a dog die of natural causes. It was...disturbing.
My GF is inconsolable. She loved that dog like a child.
I just finished putting her in the ground a few minutes ago.
Sad Day indeed.

Damn, sorry man.

Just in case anyone is curious, the cremation with urn only cost $130. About $300 less than I thought it would and well worth it

It's crazy that she displayed absolutely no signs of poor health prior to her stroke/heart attack. She was 13 years old, but was more active than my 4 yr old Min Pin.

We were looking at all of her photos as I was looking for one to post here. She was crying uncontrollably. She's still sobbing. Wish I knew of something I could do to make her feel better....Man, she loved that dog.

Just be there to comfort her. It will get better over time and your bond will grow stronger if she knows you will be there for her when it counts

Thanks a lot, man. I'm trying. She knows I loved Scully too. That was her name. X-files was here favorite show when she got her. Her twin sister has a boy dog named Fox.

She is really touched by the responses from CPers.
Thanks everybody.

I understand completely. I'm hurting over the loss of our dog, but I'm hurting more because my wife is hurting.

It's been 4 days, and she'll still just start crying out of nowhere. Or she'll see a picture of her, a blanket or a toy and it gets her started.

It's tough. Hang in there.

I am sorry FlaChief. We put down our puppy of 15 years Pete Friday at 11 am. Pete joined our family as a Christmas present for our 6 year old son. Our son has been away a college for 4 years now. I came home from work early Friday morning coaxed Pete into standing, put his leash on him and picked him up and placed him on his side at the vets, and told him we love him very much until he was gone, this memory is too much to bear right now the wife and I are completely heartbroken. I feel for your loss.
