Another Pet passes to the big puppy house in the sky....

We had to put Maddy to sleep today....she had been sick for several months with bleeding tumors and just got to the point that she didnt want to eat anymore and her belly was filling up with blood and just couldnt function. She finally told us that it was to go. She was going on 14 and had a good life. She will be missed

Sad that it was time to go; good that you accepted it. Their lives are too short.

Very sorry for your loss.

Several years ago we had to put our pooch down at 14 because of an extended illness also.

i am so sorry for your loss. I am still not quite over the passing of our Tootie (mini schnauzer) in Feb. She was sixteen, and like your Maddy she just told us it was time. She was in to much pain and life just wasn't good for her anymore. We miss her terribly, but she left us with many fond memories.

Nothing like a Beagle. They each have their own personalities, quirks and "faces" that only their owners really come to understand.

Really, really sorry for your loss. 14 good years.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. These are tough decisions and tough times even when you know it is the right thing. Good luck to you.


"There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
But when we are certain of sorrow in store
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
-- Rudyard Kipling

(We do it because to live a safe life is to miss the greatest joys, something Kipling surely showed us in his works)

Very sorry to hear. Hopefully she's playing with my beloved and missed Samantha in the "big puppy house in the sky" (first time to hear that phrase - and it made me smile)

I'm so sorry. So many of us have been through this. I'm glad she had a long, loving life with you and your family.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I share your feelings, as I still think of Puzzley (see my avatar) most days, although he's been gone for 3 years....

Maddy was a lucky dog to have had 14 years with you. I understand how much it hurts to let a beloved pet go. It's a difficult decision for anyone to make but clearly one you made out of your love for her.
