Dary, I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost both of my German Shepherds in 2011. One I had to make the decision for, the other went on her own terms. I can honestly say that neither way is easy. What did help was three weeks after the loss of my second dog, we adopted a former racing greyhound.

My grandmother always used to say, "how much you grieve shows how much you loved". Sounds like Scruffy was loved quite a bit.

Worse thing about loving dogs is they don't stick around long enough. Very sad.

Sorry to hear that Dary. I love animals, especially dogs, better than people. Sounds like Scruffy was loved and taken care of and that is all they want.

Thank you all so much ,...14 years ago I picked up scruffy at an animal shelter and there was an total and instant bond,..everyone always said " it was always meant to be " or " it's a match made in heaven " , " you two even look alike". Etc
Scruff's been my constant companion ever since... ,yesterday was the toughest decisions I ever had to make , but scruff was very sick and there was no hope for a recovery, still needless to say it's been a rough 24 hours .
I was reflecting with one of my friends today and I said " of all the millions of people in the world I wonder why God chose me to watch scruff ? He said "maybe he didn't , maybe he picked scruff to watch over YOU ! " hmmmmmm lol ,Click image for larger version

Take comfort in knowing that Scruff is in a better place and waiting to be reunited with you some day. He will always be with you Dary living inside your heart. I am a huge animal lover to and i have tears rolling down my face as i right this.

Hi all,...its been a month or so since I posted anything here. ... Life sometimes just sort of gets the best of you at times,.. Tank wise not a whole lot of activity , the Hanna alk reagent recall was something that made me say " what the heck " ( or something similar ) ,..my alk levels were basically relativity stable then suddenly after opening a new bottle they started to go all over the place , problem was that I had yet another new bottle of the same recalled batch number on standby , so I'm currently waiting for my replacement bottles without really knowing what my actual readings are. One of my bubble corals has been receding rather rapidly but knowing my history with them,that's not really anything out of the ordinary.
It looks like I'll finally have to clean off my ats screen whenever I do another pwc . On the plus side if things ,I now have some growth again on my monti's that were all but eliminated six months ago when I went to Hawaii.
