    I know this doesn't belong here , but this is forum that I have been following.I had to put my dog down today , 13 1/2 year old rottie. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. She was heallthy but could not walk anymore because of her size.I had her since she was a puppy, growing up with my daughter (same age). she would be my co-pilot when we went wheeling, she would bounce around the truck, seeking solice, but would never complain,always wanting to go, never to be left behind. I'm sorry to bother you with this, but I needed to tell someone about the loss of my BEST FRIEND!!

    I feel for you. Pets become a full member of the family. My deepest condolences.

    Sorry to hear this . We just had to do the same thing to our 11 year old rottie. He was my sons best friend and will be very hard to replace.

    Sorry to hear. I have a rottie too. They're great dogs with a ton of intelligence and heart. I'll be in your shoes in a few years. Our rottie is 6 and our daughter is four. They are great friends. Our rottie lays by her bed every night until she falls asleep. I don't know what our family would do if we lost her, she's irreplacable. I'm sure your dog was just as special. Just make sure when/if you're ready for another one you don't compare the two, a new dog can never compare to one immortalized in our memories, especially one from your childhood, or that grew up with your children.

    I am sincerely sorry for your loss brother. I remember when My dad's black lab was put down when I was a kid. There ain't words to properly describe it.

    I've walked that mile not long ago. On 12/18 I had to put my Great Dane, Max, down. He couldn't walk due to Wobbler's. He was 8. I still have dreams about him. A recurring one I have is where I come home from work and Max greets me at the door as he used to and we are playing like we did before he got "down". I tell my wife, in the dream, "Max is doing really great!". She says, "Honey, Max is dead."

    And then I wake up.
