    Humbly requesting prayers.....

    Dear Spoofee Members,
    This morning I had to put my long time friend and companion Tristan to sleep. He was my eleven year old Shih Tzu and the light of my life. Sadly, we battled COPD and asthma with him for the past eight months. Vets seem to know what to do with kitty cats, but, not many dogs present with the same medical dilemma. It turned into a "let's try this medicine" or "try this and that." Funny on the way to the Vet this morning, I had no idea the outcome was going to go this way. I thought I could just get him "one more" shot. In the end, he was suffering, and could no longer take a breath of air. A fate, in my humble opinion, that no animal, and, no human should endure. The procedure was a bit much for me, and in the end, he went back to God and heaven where he could breathe and run and play. Now, my family and I are left picking up the pieces and moving onward.

    Thus, if you don't see my usual happy smiling face about, or putting up a new thread for awhile, you won't think I abdandoned ship! I need time to grieve, and heal. Now, I feel like the "Tin Man" out of the Wizard of Oz movie, when he finally gets his heart and he proclaims with tears "Now I know I have a heart, because I can feel it breaking." Please whispher a pray for my family, and, elevate a thought or two to God for my Tristan. Thank you all, I so appreciate the same. Rags :(

    So sorry Rags.....I lost my dog (really she was just a furry person) just about 4 years ago. I had her for about 14 years and I still miss her so, we went through a lot together.

    {{hugs}} and prayers to you, your family and Tristan.....:(

    Puppy Dog Heaven

    I can relate. Ive almost lost my Bubba (17 y.o. lhasa) a couple of times.

    Im very sorry. But like you said, now he is in puppy dog heaven.

    In puppy dog heaven, there are no fences. In puppy dog heaven there are no boundaries, no rules. In puppy dog heaven tennis balls and treats fall from the trees, and the face licks are plentiful. In puppy dog heaven Tristan gets to run, hunt, play, and lie in the sun in the tall, green grass. And at the end of the day he curls up at the feet of his master, because in puppy dog heaven, youre there too.

    (Or at least thats what I like to think. Maybe Tristan and Bubba can be friends when Bubba joins him.)

    -Dog is my copilot-

    Oh Ragnarok, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The loss of a pet is hearbreaking and I am so sorry. :( You are right when you say no animal should have to suffer but it is still tough to lose an animal. They are so much a part of your family. I will be thinking of you.

    Sorry to hear about your situation Rags. I lost my long time companion just about 2 1/2 years ago. She was my siamese cat that I had for 13 years. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

    I am so sorry, Rags! I kid that my dogs are a huge pain in my behind, but I would be devastated if either of them were gone. I know another dog could never replace Tristan, but do you plan on getting another one any time soon?
