And one day, my mom got out of her car and Nikki was in the fenced in part of the yard on side of the house, and my mom heard someone saying her name, Sharon. She freaked out and crept up to the fence, only to hear some more yips and barks, and realized it was just the dog. Pretty funny. Btw, if you have never heard a husky chattering away, you are missing out. They are hilarious.
Lol. Did the dog actually say "Sharon" or was she imagining it? I have heard the huskies and its hilarious. XD

She came close, I had heard her come close before. More like rar-on. I miss that dog every day. She was my buddy for like 15 years.

She passed away a few years ago, laid down in the summer sun and went in her sleep. It was the best I could have wished for her. Unlike our other dog, who we had to put down maybe two years ago after she lost the use of her back legs. She had a rough last month or so before my mom just couldn't keep her comfortable any longer. That was our standard poodle, Chanel. Full name Brahney's Chanel No. 5. She was puppy number 5 in her litter, and Chanel no. 5 is my mom's favorite perfume.

We've had to put a few down before. It's hard. My grandpa had to put his down. But he did it the old fashioned way, if you know what I mean, it took him 3 days to get himself to do it.

Awww... So sweet and sad! As loss of pet always is! Love the names you Guys came up with. Hey Alyxx, I started a thread in unhealthy fish section "fin rot?", would you mind looking at the picture there when you get a chance and share some of your experience? Other then my recent one I've never dealt with illness in fish so all I know is book knowledge, but there's nothing like having actually been through it

Putting them down us not only an emotional and moral dilemma, it can also be a rather considerable expense! 4 yrs ago I had to put down 2 of my kitty boys (15 yr old litter mates suffering from thyroid disease and complications. My vet bill was just pennies short of 400$! So there is something to be said for your Grandpa's "old fashion ways" though I don't know if I could bring myself to do that. Now that vet bill did include "mass cremation" of my "boys"bodies which I regret having done, should have buried them in my backyard, but back then I was so traumatized by that whole thing that was not thinking straight

I would never be able to make myself do it that way to put an animal down. Shudder....

Awwww. Well, that is a very peaceful death. Dying while sleeping. It's really sad though too.

i have a 1 gallon tank with a baby betta in it a 2.5 with a male veiltale betta and a 20 gallon mouse tank with 6 mice 10 gallon balloon molly tank 20 gallon planted tank two 5.5 betta tanks and a fat cockapoo haha. the last one is my chihuahua/pappillion mix that is now living at my moms because he causes to much allergies for my girlfriends mom. i rescued him from my friends rich snobby ex girlfriend that was going to send him to a 30 day shelter in florida and believe me nobody would have wanted this dog, as cute as he is, he is vicious to people who dont know him. i told them i would take him and they actually paid to fly him up here. when i first got him he would not get off my bed, but he wouldnt even let me touch him. a week after i had him he was in love with me and would literally sleep under the covers he is an awesome dog
