Anyone else missing their pet?

We had to have our beloved Oliver, a Brittany Spaniel, put to sleep today due to internal bleeding from cancer. He was 12 years old. He was a noisy, funny, overactive, obstinate, cuddly, and loving dog. We will always miss him.

Tell me about the pets you miss.

  • We lost our boy Angus on Sunday. He was a 10 year old English Mastiff. He is missed terribly. The only positive is that he died here at home with his family doing what he enjoyed, playing ball. He suffered a stroke. We have lost many a companion over the years and it does not get easier. Each loss is unique and each loss hurts as bad as the last. It will get better in time.

We found her on the side of the road the next morning =(...NOTE: DON"T let anybody critize you for grieving...he was a family member and you feel the loss... We had PJ 5 years and I still miss her especially when I sit in my chair....

  • I had a pit ironically named, Vick and I just recently had to give him away because I was moving. He is a chocolate and white, red-nosed pit and he was so playful. Contrary to most people's beliefs he was not vicious at all, he was very child-like especially because he was on 18 months old.

  • My cat, Chipper, - he's the one in my avatar picture. He was very funny and sweet. And timid- I called him Chicken Cat. He was my guard cat- when somebody came down the driveway I wouldn't hear the truck but I'd hear the cat door to the basement slam and knew Chipper was running from what he considered a threat. He would bump against me when he wanted attention, and when I would put my shoes on to go out he would look so sad. He was a good kitty. He died suddenly at age 10, much too soon. We came home from vacation and found him dead. He was an inside only cat. He died between the time our catsitters were there that morning and the time we got home about noon. I miss him terribly.

  • I had a cat named Sweetie. She was the most adorable, affectionate cat EVER. She got outside one day and my uncle came home and told me he saw her on the side of the road. She got hit by a car :[. She was the only cat I ever had that had kittens, even though she ate the first litter (yuck) but I miss her.

  • my Siberian husky, Nikita. she was so playful and crazy. she lad the most beautiful ice blue eyes, and she looked like she had thick black eyeliner on. she was just the prettiest dog, and i loved taking her to the SPCA Dog Jog every year. she developed a rather large growth in her chest, and was so spunky she never let on that anything was bothering her until it was too late. she just collapsed one day and never recovered in time for us to get the necessary tests done to find out exactly what was wrong. she was too young.

  • My heart goes out to you OP! Or, anyone who loses a pet. I still grieve for our losses.

    I miss our beloved dalmation Sam E. Boy. He's been gone for 4 yrs. this June. We had to put him down to a tumor that was eating his body away from the inside out. We rescued him from a shelter...we think he was about 13 or 14 when he passed. We actually had him for 12 of those years. I remember the day we picked him...he kept rubbing his face/head on the chain link fence looking at, pick me. That later became known as the pound puppy rub..which he continued to do. In his prime he weighed 90 lbs. I know...a bigger dalmation. He was loving, loyal, and amazing. He is still dearly missed and, always will be.
    We also lost our poodle Jacques to an accident 2 yrs ago this July. He jumped out of our dd's hands onto the deck. He was only 3 lbs. We think he broke his back. I think the sudden death made it harder for me personally.
