    Lost our family pet a few months ago. It’s very tough.

      Glory on the left and her son Trouble on the right. He was the lone survivor of her first litter, hung around together at the apartment we used to live at and when we moved, they came with us and have been perfect house cats.

        So sorry to hear about you losing Triton. He looks like he was a really cool guy and had a long and I'm quite sure a very happy life.

          Far too young. He looks like a real hoot.

            Raz trust me I know what you're going through. 2 weeks ago we lost The Nugz. He was only 6. Had an accident around the house after he got into some place he never should have gotten into. I don't want to share the details but we are freaking crushed. Especially my wife, who is the consummate "dog lady." Our dogs are her babies. I wasn't home when she found his body and as you can imagine she is still reliving every minute of it and blaming herself for not being able to save him. And I was halfway across the country feeling about as helpless as you can feel.

            Nugs was the baby of the pack and the life of the party. Truly a one in a million dog. Even with 4 other dogs around here it just seems way too quiet now. We buried his ashes in a little ceremony with some friends and family and I blubbered like a little baby as did pretty much everyone else.

                Well the time came and we had to put Zuma down today. It’s been a really hard day for us. Never easy making those decisions. She was 14.5 yo and the cancer took over, rapidly.

                        I wish it were that easy. Sounds like what our boy said this afternoon.

                          That's what we did when our 2 died within a week of each other, Actually Lacy sort of fell into our laps... And didn't like us.
                          Like I said in an earlier post she went from being chained up 24-7 to a family of 5 kids and 12 dogs.
                          Our first meeting she wouldn't get near wife and I but after a week or so wife just went and got her, Ad on the way home stopped to get Granddaughter from bus.
                          Having never met Emma, Lacy seen the bus and started shaking.... Emma steps off bus and Lacy is bouncing.... At this time Wife is almost freaked out as she's not sure if dog is happy or is going to eat a 6 yo kid.... Anyway Emma opens door and POW, Instant love.

                          To this day Lacy will get between me and other dogs, Not fighting but a "He's mine" stance, And to this day when I walk into house after work she'll bark at me, Just one bark but a bark nonetheless......

                                I always said, if you want to know who loves you more your dog or your wife just lock them both in the trunk of your car and see which one is happy to see you when you let them out.

                                      It’s not easy. But you and they need love.

                                      We had a book for our daughter when we had to put down Henry...Up in Heaven.

                                      Eventually my wife came around and it’s been the best. That’s been over 10 years ago. I love dogs.

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
