    I feel your pain. It's so tough. Like others, we've lost one of our dogs at Christmas last year. The other lab isn't doing well. With my wife working for a vet, she knows his time is coming soon. It's tough, and my heart goes out to you.

    I just lost my lab last night with no warning. He was just short of his eleventh birthday. Reading these comments helps. He has left a big hole in our hearts and life.

    Sorry for your loss Bill. My wife and I are still aching over losing our two GR's in the past 10 months. Time will heal the sorrow and the great memories remain forever!

    I'm so sorry for your loss of such a great friend, memories of whom will always be with you. He'll want you to get a new buddy soon...

    Very sorry to hear about your loss. I went through something similar a few years ago. Reading how you talk about your beloved friend clearly shows how much you cared for him. I'm sure he knew that. I empathize with your situation. Be thankful to have found him and always remember the many wonderful years you enjoyed together.

    So sorry to hear this, Bob. I think it helped me that I really had no warning. But it's been tough. I still find myself saying "Porter, I'm home" when I come in.
