I very sadly had to make the decision to put Totem down yesterday, 6 weeks short of her 17th birthday. I am absolutely heartbroken : ( I'm here to share this with you all because I know the love you all have for your Labbys. Totiegirl was very weak in her back right leg which was causing her to trip easily. Yesterday morning she fell and couldn't get up so I called our vet and made the decision...the hardest of my life. I woke up this morning and thought of her and started to cry. I just can't believe how much this hurts it's totally unbelievable even though I've been prepared for a long time. Goodbye my sweet old girl I love you and will miss you always, even though you will live on in my heart.
'Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog'

Man, it is so hard to lose them. Especially when you've had one for so long. My condolences on your loss. RIP, Totem.
My Lab is smarter than your honor student.

Run free sweet Totem. Run free...... I am so sorry for your loss. So many of us have lost dogs we love so much and our hearts all break with yours. I lost our Maggiemay in May 2011. I still cry for her. We are here for you if you need to talk. Take care, and try to keep your chin up.

I'm so sorry. What an incredible age she was. Not sure but I think she was possibly JL's oldest dog.
You gave her a fabulous life & the fact she was in such good health & lived so long is testament to that. She couldn't have had a better home.
so very sorry.
they never live long enough.
Oh, she was beautiful !
So very sorry for your loss
I'm very sorry for your loss. God rest her soul. RIP Totem.
If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.
She is beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss. You were very lucky to have such a long time to love and spoil such a special lab. Run free Totem.
