    Those are beautiful pictures and at least you'll have those and the good times together to cherish. I'm sorry for your loss.

    Thank you, all of you. I can't even begin. I keep reading your posts over and over again.

    Thank you. <3 That's not how it feels right now, when I woke up and the house is cold and empty, but I know you're right. There were a couple of times I was afraid to let him out of the crate, and when we took a trip to Rifle and he refused to come hiking with us, that was my wake-up call. "Nope, I'm good in the car, thanks. I don't want to roll in mud and eat poop and trip you. Have fun on your own!"

    If you want to come over Wednesday I would really love that. C will be in Utah for work, and he doesn't want me to be alone.

    I'm so glad you got to meet him, too. He was a bit of a nightmare the day you met him, and the fact that you still liked him amazed me. TBH, I think he started it with baby P first.

    (((((((((HUGS)))))))))))) That's why I did pictures. I'm somewhere in between numb and crying.

    I still can't, either. The house is empty. The vets were all so supportive, and they've been there with me through a lot of the issues, and they reaffirmed that it was the right decision, but emotionally? I feel like I left my dog on the floor at the vets office. I really feel like I let him down, like why couldn't I just keep him in a crate for the next two years so he'd be safe!? It's not logical at all, it's just how I feel.

    Oh I am so so so sorry. :(:(

    Just keep telling yourself that it isn't logical, that you made the absolute best/safest decision for him. You would've felt bad having him in a crate for two years when the end came. I know emotions don't care about logic but I find when I keep repeating the same stuff to myself over and over it eventually sinks in.

    Major hugs.

    I'm so sorry. He too, was one of my favorite dogs, and he couldn't of had a better life with anyone else. It may seem unreasonable, but in the end, it was the right decision(and, I know, you would choose the best for him.). I wish I could do more, but for now, if you ever need to talk, feel free to PM me.

    Wonderful pictures, by the way!

    So, so, so sorry. Worst decision ever to have to make, but you kept life fair for him at the end.

    RIP Middie. You were a gorgeous boy.

    I'm so sorry :( I didn't have the privilege of meeting him, but I always enjoyed Middie threads. I don't think he could have had a better home, filled with adventure and mutual respect.

    If you ever need to talk, feel free to shoot me a PM... I know EXACTLY how you feel. Some days I go, "well should I have just kept her drugged for a few more days? weeks? could I have bought her more time? Did I kill my dog?" even though I know that's stupid. ((hugs))

    So sorry to hear about your dog. It sounds like you did what you had to do. So hard but yet so important. The way you handled it was impressive. That took a lot of strength and I am sure Middie was very grateful for everything you did for him.

    Thank you all again for the love and support.

    I'm having a way harder time with this than I thought. I really am used to having him around, and I'm going half crazy without a dog.

    Oh my, my heart broke while reading this. I didn't really know Middie, but your story is still so touching. At least he doesn't have to suffer up in doggy heaven. :(

    I haven't been super active on Chaz lately and I feel like a D-bag for missing this. :-/

    I'm so sorry for your loss. RIP Middie and run free.

    I'm sorry your still feeling the pain of loosing Middie, I hope things start to get better for you soon. :-(

    He was such a cool dog, I'm so glad that I got to meet him while he was here.
