    DefaultOur Yellow Lab, Casey, Passed Away

    Got one of the worst phone calls ever from the wife. She found our soon to be 8 year old lab dead in her doghouse. I have no idea what happened. We walk nearly every day and she was showing no signs of illness or injury. I cried my eyes out when I had to pull her out of the house and still I cry and feel like my heart weighs a ton. Every time I walk in the garage I see her food containers and her leash and I feel like there is a hole in my heart, like a part of me disappeared. And I keep listening for her bark, which would remind me it was time to go walking.
    A part of me wants to buy a new pup, but I'm still hurting pretty good over the loss of our dog.

    So, so sorry for your loss, whether you know it is going to happen or it's sudden it will never be easy.
    We got a puppy 1 month after one of our babies passed, it was the guilt that was the hardest to deal with.
    Remember, that if you decide to get another dog, there is nothing wrong with you giving your love to another.
    Your not betraying your Casey. You are honoring her with an open heart to love again. I'm sure she is in good company

    Thank You for the condolences. I just came back from where I buried her. I grabbed her food bowls and collar and leash and cleaned them real good. Just so hard to look at those tags and her empty dog run with the door open. What a lonely feeling......

    I might add, there will be no other breed at my house. I think Labradors are simply a gift from God. They can be hyper, mischievous, and eat you at the house, but you won't find a more loyal and affectionate dog. Our Lab was so gentle around our daughter, even when they were both babies nearly 7 years ago. Our daughter doesn't know what to think, she kept looking out the window for her last night. I think young children may delay grief or handle it differently. Not me though, Ive been puffy eyed for nearly 24 hours.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's always difficult to lose them, more so when it's sudden. May memories comfort you.

    I'm also sorry to hear about your loss. As a friend told me, they haven't truly gone but only gone ahead.
