    Lost our dog

    Got home from work last night to find our dog had died. he was 11 years old and had cancer. Up until the last day or two, he seemed normal. More interested in eating and being petted. This is the one that would get a pants or pants leg if the wrong person came looking around. Don't know if we'll replace him now or wait until spring.
    His favorite spot was a deep hole he had dug, so that's where I laid him and all i had to do was fill it with dirt.

    Real sorry for your loss Steve. Glad though he didn't have to suffer and was able to enjoy you all and you him too.

    I am really sorry to hear about this Steve. Our pets hold special places in our hearts, and I know you will miss him as long as you live. We have gone through this unexpectedly twice, and our experience has been that a new dog and pal is good therapy. You will know when it's time.

    Thanks for all the replies. Diane and I had a chance to talk about replacing him. We want a puppy and it will be an outside dog. They're talking about this winter being as bad or worse then last winter. We decided to wait until spring to replace him so it'll be easier on him to survive the winter.
