My Poor Chancho Died Today... :-(

The day was so dreadful feeling for me. My eldest son golden retriever dog Chancho died at the age of 9 (52 dog years). This morning, he was a bit walking like a drunken man. Then, I had checked him this afternoon. He was just lying down and not moving. I felt so bad that he died so soon. I am not sure if I can have another dog after this. Image Credit: Shavkat/070217

Oh @Shavkat , I'm so sorry. I know it hurts. It sounds like he had a stroke or heart attack. Getting another dog can be a tough decision.

@Shavkat Your other dog does know something is wrong. Dogs grow attachments to each other just like humans do.

@nanette64 I agree. There is a special connection between the master and the loyal dog.

I am so sorry to hear that. But I am sure that Chancho is in God's hand now, living peacefully..Better not to have any pets now.

I am sure that he is in heaven now. He is with my late father.

I am sorry, I really am , no one want their fur baby to pass I wonder what he passed from? You will probably have another, but not soon.. It won't replace him, but will make you happy.

I still have one dog, my friend. But he is the oldest dog. These past few months, I had noticed that he had weakened. I was thinking he really got old.

@Shavkat It takes a long time to heal grief about a dog. Just give it the time you would not give it yourself to get over it and you will never forget him. I remember Shep how we used to play for hours that is how I prefer to remember him.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is a painful thing. We just lost our Sammy, our little Pekingese. It is hard to take the loss of a pet that we love so much.

@Shavkat I know. I had two dogs die three months apart. I didn't get another dog for three years. I actually didn't get the one we have now, my hubby did.I kept saying no, but it wasn't fair to him. The pain will ease, but the memory lives on. Hugs

I am so sorry to hear of this. I had a golden retriever who got ill at the age of about 9 with a brain tumor. We kept her on steroids to help keep the size of the tumor down but she ended up dying when she was 12. It is so sad and I'm so sorry to hear about this.
