Well as all us dog lovers know sooner or later we have to part with our best friend.
I had to have my Lab put down this morning due to cancer. This is probably one of the worse decisions a man or woman has to make. Then you have to bury them after that. Sad day here for sure. She use to go fishing with me hunt with me and sleep next to my bed for 14 years. My kids enjoyed her for all 6 years of there lives. Hopefully they will understand when they come home from school today. :(

Yea Rodger, thats never a easy thing to do..
When they say "Mans Best Friend" they are telling you the truth...
Sorry to hear about this my friend.. Take Care.
My sympathy goes out to you and your family! Remember the good times. You did the only thing you could. Prayers for the pouch.
Sorry to hear that Roger. I am amazed on how many cases of K9 cancer I am hearing of lately. I wonder if there are any studies to show this & why?
There are vet clinical trials going on all the time. My company has worked on a few. Obviously they don't get the time or funding that human trials do. Sorry for your loss. We've been through it and it sucks the big one.
That sucks I love my pup like a child.
Sorry to hear that! Have had all labs for the last 17 yrs...they are wonderful dogs...very sad when they leave us! She is in a good place..remember all the good times, they will last forever! Take care
Sorry to hear that you lost a great companion like that.
Sorry to hear about your loss.

"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in a selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog"
Sorry to hear that. Always a tough decision. My first dog that I had to put to sleep did a very good job of letting us know that it was time. Very sad.

I'm so sorry to hear that sad news, Striper. They soon become a part of the family and it feels awful when they have to go. Be thankful for the good times and memories you all made. Take care...
Roger...........Sorry to hear that news. A very hard day but when the time comes, our pets deserve not to have to suffer with incurable problems. My condolences.
Thanks everyone, I apreciate these messages.
Thanks Again.
Bad day for your Family, and all that new your best friend. Find some healing, and go get another lab.
really sorry to hear of your loss.i had a dog of mine stolen and it broke my heart.just got a new puppy"springer spaniel"great dog.but i know someday i will go throught what you have,again very sorry ,matt
Sorry to hear that. I have a Lab myself who fishes and hunts with me. He's 11 now, and that is not something you ever want to have to deal with. Labs are like your children, at least He is to me. Deepest sympathies to you and your kids.
Very sad ...hang in there...its tough but you are a responsible dog owner and your buddy was lucky to have you...Ill pray for both of you..take care.
I feel for you. I can still remember what it was like when I lost mine.
