It was tough to loose the old boy.
I had him from a pup and he never left my side.
We had some great times together.
He was lazy and wouldn't fetch a stick for nothing but he greeted me every day when I came home from work.

This was his m.o.

These were our camping pro's Glacier and Denali with little Juneau. We lost them both within two weeks of this trip. They were wonderful all the time outside-no problems at all.

Look for a local pet sitter. We have one come by our house twice a day when take a long trip.

We bought our camper because of the dogs! They did not do so well in the hotel....had to protect their pack, so the whole reason for the camper are the dogs.

When the clock struck 2:00 today I had a tough few moments, asquared. Exactly one week our girl Chelsea has now spent over the rainbow bridge.

Dunno if I've mentioned it on the forum yet, but it's strange being here in this house without her. She lived here longer than we did, seriously. We came to view the house and she ran out on to the garage. I admired her and the lady said "you want her? we aren't taking her with us, can't have dogs in the apartments we're moving to"

Our Fred seems to realize now that something is different. We intentionally took him camping last weekend, so he could settle in to her being gone gradually, since when we took long trips she always stayed at a doggie hotel here locally and I'd pick her up a day after we returned.

He's sticking very close to us, right on our heels every move we make. If that's the worst of his reaction to her being gone, then he *and* we are blessed. This house seems so much bigger and quieter with her gone though.

Sneak and I both have sworn never another dog....having to "love her enough..." still hurts way too much.

We need to focus on Fred, making sure he's emotionally ok (she was, for all intents and purposes *HIS MOMMA*) with her no longer being here.

We both realize "never say never", but it'll have to be a very special dog in much need of rescuing....and no time soon.

So sorry for your loss.
I love the 2 knuckleheads we have now but I miss my Kaboodle that has been gone for 4 years now.

Make sure to ask for references and see how they are with your pets first. We lost my husband's elderly cat 2 years ago because of a misunderstanding with a long-time pet sitter. We went on a 2-week long trip back to New Jersey and sent the dogs to my daughter's house, but the cat didn't like to leave his room, so we asked a friend's daughter to come look in on him. Long, sad story, when she saw the dogs gone, and no sight of the cat, she assumed we had also kenneled him and forgot to tell her. We came home to a very dehydrated kitty who died before we could get him to the vet.

Weezer- sorry about having to let her go. Thank goodness Fred is there to "help" with your affections. If it wasn't for our little one when our other two left us, we would have been absolute wrecks!

It's always hard to let our kids go, but they have loved the time they spent with us.

We said "never" too after losing our (MY mommas boy Buddy) yellow lab two years ago

It still makes me cry to even write about him today - like right now 😢

That lasted 33 days and we brought our chocolate lab Jackson Brown home at eight weeks of age 💕💕💕💕

We know our past fur babies are all reunited and waiting with tails wagging and big doggie kisses 💋
