Default I was cruising and they put my dog down



While we were on the Ecstasy I got an email from DD that Shelby,
our wonderful nine year old Shetland Sheepdog, had suffered a massive stroke. Dd knew he needed to be put down and we of course agreed.

He was a wonderful friend and getting home is not going to be the same without his pointy little nose poking out of the pet door.

So sorry about this, especially since you were so far from him at the time.

Very sorry to hear about your pet, I too know how difficult it is, especially when you were so far away.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you sweet pet didn't have to suffer.

I have to board my four sweet fur babies when I cruise and I worry about them the whole time.

Magnolia Blossom, so sorry to hear about Shelby.
I can't imagine the pain of being so far away and not being able to be with him. I hope he didn't suffer too much, and my condolences to you and your family.

It's very hard to lose a pet. With Shelby it was harder, becasue it was unexpected. He was still fairly young. I'm sorry for your loss.

Having pet sat several times, my sympathy goes out to your daughter (and to you also).

Very sorry for your loss. It is so sad. Will pray, for I don't know what else to do - I know the pain you are experiencing.

The unexpected loss of a pet is particulary painful and you have my condolences.

We're so sorry to hear about your loss. We of course are also animal people and while we now have cats, I grew up with dogs. We always had two dogs when I was growing up (one a collie mix that lived to be 21 and the other a Shepherd) that were an integral part of our family as well.

Magnolia, I know your pain. Been there and experienced it, we are stuck in Miami, the dog takes ill and we lost him,,I never forget that. For me its guilt I should have been there.

Just pass that love on to another wee soul that needs it, thats what we did
