    We brought him home from Oregon the last time we went and visited my brother. He was 2 1/2. We fell in love with him immediately.

    We had to have him put down yesterday. We only had him four months, but it's amazing how attached you can get in such a short time. He was my BUD. He loved to go for a trail ride in my Samurai, chase deer and quail, and he'd swim until he was dragged out of the water. Then all of a sudden, a month ago, he got viscious on me. It got worse and worse as days went on, like he wanted to kill me. He bit me real good a few times. We brought him to a trainer, and my regular vet. Then we took him to a highly recommended vetrinary behaviorist. After a LOT of observation of his interactions with me and Dorissa, she said that there was something not right in his head. We tried a lot of exercises to try to work with him, to no avail. When he got vicious with Dorissa this past weekend, we knew we had to put him down. At the vet, he had to take MASSIVE doses of sedatives before he passed out. It was after he passed out that I was finally able to pet him and hug him for the first time in months. I would have held him forever if I could have. He was a good dog. It was only after he got viscious that the original owners admitted to my brother that their 3 year old had abused him with a shock collar, firecrackers, and who know what else. This plus the "short circuit" in his brain made him a "lost cause" so to speak. Any way, we loved him so much, and in only four months. This was the first dog I had had since the family dog died when I was in high school. Dorissa and I are heartbroken. I hope that all of you with the critters you love give them the happiest life you can. Their companionship is priceless. That's all, I'm done rambling

    Sorry to hear that brother. I've got 2 dogs now, but my one boy is 13 now. This dog is my best bud, and stayed by my side and wouldn't leave me when I was recovering from a horrible accident. I hate thinking about "that day", but I know it's getting closer and closer.

    I feel ya man.
    My cat died on Holloween. I have had her since before I was born, she used to sleep in my crib before I was born and continuted to always do so after I was born. She spent all her time with me and even had her kittnes in the crib right next to me. Me being a only child made her like a sister to me. She was always there to sit on my lap or for me to cuddle at night. I still think about her every day. Her dieing was the hardest thing I have ever had to go throuhg in my life. It still brings a tear to my eye this day to think about it.
    All you can really do is just try and move on. I still havent let go fully but I am getting there. I try no to think about it to much.
    I am 18 yrs old. She died at the age of 19.
    My prayers are with you.:(

    That really sucks. Good dogs are hard to find, we have two labs and I dont know whats going to happen if one of them goes. I may be able to help you out on a pup next summer.

    Sorry to hear that. People can really screw up a god dog. A 3 year old that is already screwing dogs up (apparently with the knowledge of the parents) will no doubt be a pleasent adult.:rolleyes:

    Big question, how are the parents treating that 3-year old? Are they being mean to him?

    Anyway, first good dog my dad had got messed up when the grandfather (dad's side) insisted on having him fixed when he was way too old to be fixed. Dad tried to stop it, but grandfather went and had it done behind his back once while he was away. Dog got vicious shortly afterwards and dad had to get rid of him.

    This kid is a little sh!t. He's four or five now. His mother thinks he's an angel, his dad has some idea of what he's really like.. My brother watches the kid all the time. He's the one who told me the kid is a little terror. I'd like to put the collar on HIM for a day or two.:mad: I think the parents know a little more about what happened to Jesse than they want to admit. Jesse was such a good looking dog, everyone who saw him would say so too. It's too bad.

    I would have NEVER chosen a Springer for a dog if I was puppy shopping. I thought they were kind of 'foo-foo". I always wanted a yellow lab. But when we visited Brian (my brother) in Ore. this summer, we met Jesse, and we brought him home. Like I said, we fell in love with him, and his 100-mph wagging tail, smiling eyes, big ol' tongue hanging out the side of his mouth all the time. He was always sooooo happy to see me when I got home from work. He trusted me completely. Then one day, it was like he didn't recognize me, and I couln't go near him. When he was put down, I at least got to pet him and hug him again, I know he didn't really hate me. Everyone we talked to said it was a dominance aggression problem, but when they observed the interaction he had with me, they all agreed he was not right in the head. So sad, there are tears in my eyes as I type this. I want another Springer, but we will get a pup and do it right.

    Thanks for all the kind words fellas.

    I'm having to come to grips with the fact that I may have to put Cassidy down LONG before I thought she would go....she's in so much pain I can't even squeeze her anymore. It's amazing how much of an impact the simple companionship of a mutt can have on a person.

    I feel for you brother. After my basset hound passed away in april, all I could think about was how much I wanted her back. You and your dog will be in my prayers! :(
