Rest in peace Megan.

We had to put our dog Schmegan Megan to sleep yesterday at noon. She was a great dog. I turned myspace into a sort of a memorial for her until I finish the video clip.
check it out.

Thanks guys...she was 14 and a half years old...she was a german shepard and doberman mix. usually those dogs tend to get hip displasia and at first thats what we thought it was. It turned out to be a nerve problem in her back instead. we took her to the vet before Christmas and got her fixed up and they prescribed drugs that seemed to help. But for the last week or so...she couldnt even stand up with help. We had to carry her around the back yard in a sling and we could tell that she wasnt happy about it.
Saddest thing I've ever seen...and thats saying alot
I havent been around much of late...but it is my busy season at work and I have far less time on my hands, not to mention the wedding planning.
But Foo is my second home and I appreciate you guys and all the help and support you generate. I only hope that I can return the favor at times

If it wasnt for the bike forum my bike would still be in alot of pieces...and they would all be the wrong parts

Thanks Siu and Mish thanks you too

The only thing worse than losing a dog is watching a dog get sick until you lose him.

My lab, Murphy, who I love dearly and who I would sometimes like to have outlive me, was dangerously sick with Addison's last year. We brought her home one night after a vet visit, thinking this would be her last night with us. I hope no one ever feels that again, losing a dog is devastating. I'm so sorry for your loss, and believe me, I am.

So true

I heard someone say this the other day and I agree - we're able to treat our pets better than our own elderly. So sorry for your loss, she's pain-free now.

Wow, that sucks, earlier this year we had to put down our family dog after 17 years. I can't think of the last time (including funerals) where all of my immediate family cried except for that day.

I hope you keep all the happy memories in your heart for years to come.

I'm truly sorry MB. It really hurts to lose pets. A lot of people don't understand how hard it is but there a quite a few here on Foo that do.

And, aprilm, I don't think it's corny at all. But maybe that's because I can't get through it without crying.
