My dog Bryn just died about ten minutes ago.He had been sick a bit during the day,we thought it was tummy trouble but when my wife went through to see him tonight she sat with him and realised he had just passed away.Poor old Bryn a King charles spaniel beautiful looking dog.We made an appointment to see the vet in the morning if he hadn’t improved she said wait tonight and see how it goes.My wife son and I are really upset .Those of you with dogs will understand my feelings howeveer he didn’t suffer badly just lay down to sleep and never woke up.My last dog suffered and I had to have him put down another smaller king charles spaniel she had trouble at the end breathing so I am glad Bryn never suffered Alistair

I am so very sorry for your loss, it is good that he never suffered though, he went in peace.

sorry for your loss , allistair .
it’s sad the differences in ages ,
you get to know them ,

then are gone .
but they do give all ,
and that is priceless !

Sorry for your loss. My two dogs are laying next to me as I read this. I know the day will come and we’re going to miss them as they are part of the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved cat about 2 months ago and can feel your pain.
Remember the good times… it is hard right now but will become easier. I keep a picture of my Bart on my screen saver. Now I just love looking at him… it took a while for this to happen.
Pets hold a special place in our hearts. They love us unconditionally… we don’t get that from too many humans these days!
Again, my sympathies.

Very sorry for your lost Alistair, I know after having a pet for a while it is part of the family. My wife lost a very nice cat she had for a long time and we got another one but she still talks about the one she lost.
Alistair the best thing is to get another one as soon as possible.

My condolences Allistair… I’m very sorry about Bryn.

I remember when our yellow lab, Dusty, left us at age 15. My wife called to say she had expired, and so I rushed home, but when I got there she had miraculously revived and greeted me with a limp wag of her tail. She then passed peacefully a bit later that evening—once she knew that all of her 5 human “pack mates” were home and with her. Dogs are so loyal! That’s why we love them so.

Glad to hear Bryn didn’t suffer.

Allistair, I am so sorry for you and your family.

These guys come into our lives and really ask nothing of us. All they want is to “earn their keep” by giving us their absolute devotion, love and adoration. It is hard when we lose them but focusing on the memories that they leave us with puts things into perspective. To parapharase Garth Brooks “We could miss the pain but then we would have to miss the dance as well”. The pain that comes with thier passing is hard but it is worth it for all the memories and love that are left in our hearts.
