Sorry about this Brewer, I know you and your whole family loved him and gave him a good life.

Sorry for your loss, Brewer. I had a beagle growing up, and they are one of the greatest companions a man (or kid) could have.

So sorry, Brewer. Anyone who has ever had to let a dog go knows that it is like losing a dear family member.

Beautiful picture Brewer. What lovely memories you and your family must have of him. It's been nine months since I lost my beloved cat and I still miss him so much.

My sympathy, too.
Four-legged family members are just as dear as the two-legged kind. Keep his picture handy. I think it helps.
