Robert - You did the right thing. For all the joy they give us, we owe our dogs a good life, and a gentle end. Nothing makes a dog happier than to be in its human's arms. Your dog was happy when the lights went out.

I want to thank everyone who responded with kind and loving comments about Murphy. You cannot know how much they have helped me. I hope we can meet on the road sometime— just look for a Boston Terrier with a sun-visor!

You have my sympathy.

I've never had to do what you did; the one time it was necessary, Lee went to the vet.

Dogs are great companions and friends. I wish my acre were fenced so I could have one now. Of course, if I lived where you do, I wouldn't have to worry about fences.

Robert, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. It's a terrible feeling I know, I still get misty when I think back on "Star" our golden retriever. The memories remain though to bring a smile in time.

Robert -- I remember from the past how dear your dogs are to you, and I know how difficult that decision can be -- I went through that same thing just a couple months ago. Will pray for you at this time.

So sorry Robert. When I had to put my dog Rip to sleep years ago, he did look me in the eye and told me that he was alright. I know that Murphy felt the same. Damit, my eyes are leaking.

Listen to my music here:

I keep hoping that when I die and get to heaven, my Chocolate Lab "Duke" will be waiting for me to go for a long walk. God put pets in our lives to bring us joy and unquestioned love, our job is to care for them and love them back. When Duke's illness made it very difficult to move, he still thought that he was a puppy and wanted to run but couldn't. It was a terrible ride to the vet and even worse coming home to bury one of my best friends.
Now my eyes are leakijng also.
