My best mate ever and the best thing in my life died today. I'm half way around the world crying my eyes out. I'm sorry but I had to tell someone - words are beyond me right now on what this guy meant to me.

Mate, may there be bones to chew and cats to chase. Hugs and kisses, butt rubs, belly rubs, and huge fields to run in.

Love Pete

AP - In September, we had to make the decision to put Odie, our Shepherd X, "to sleep". She had been sick for about 3 months with a combination of alzheimer type illness (she nearly bit my hand off one day whern I went to pat her - she just didn't know who I was) as well as some sort of spasms and fits - almost like epilepsy.

Even though she was 11 years old, it was the hardest thing I have to do in my 34 years so far. I shed a tear or two, and still go into the back yard every now and then expecting to see her.

At 5 years old I'm guessing General did not die of natural causes. That has to be hard.

Anyway, sorry to hear about General - perhaps he and Odie will play together in the "big park in the sky" (where running off leash is allowed)!

That's sad news AP. Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it and I hadn't even met him or you. He was a beautiful example of the breed and I know how companionable he would have been.

All I can say is my thoughts are with you, safe travelling and take care of yourself.

Sad news indeed AP. Brings tears to my eyes and I hadn't met him or yourself. The bond between man and a great dog is an indescribable thing. Our thoughts are with you. Safe journey back and in the meantime don't forget to take good care of yourself.

AP, although it is hard, try to reflect on happy memories when your mind wonders to the subject of your lost mate rather than the fact that he is no longer here now.

Sorry to hear about your loss mate

Sorry to hear of your loss mate. Losing a good friend is never easy, but I'm sure he's enjoying a romp in the paddock as we speak. And being their nature, I'm sure he's grinning from ear to ear

All the best

Pete I am really sorry to hear of your loss :eek:hman: :BW:
I am dreading the day when I take my dogs to the vet and he recommends them to be sent to a 'better' place (Labrador X 13 years old, German Shep 12 years old).

May General rest in peace....

Sorry to hear that, Pete. Animals such as these are much more than pets - they are family and like you said, best mates.

RIP General.

Always a sad occasion - we know it's going to happen one day but we're never ready when it does.

Sorry to hear about the passing of General. I still remember when we got the phone call while on holidays telling us that Tiny, our beloved Pyrenean Mountain dog, passed away in her sleep. I know that General gave you as much love and happiness in his 5 short years that Tiny gave us in her 12 years. Rest assured that he will always be with you in mind and spirit.
