Needing that Rainbow Bridge; lost my best friend today...

    I lost my best friend today; my black lab died unexpectantly; dropped dead of an apparent heart attack.
    I left to go to Marv's to cook Gumbo, and picked the Weedeater up, and there he was, tail wiggling, bright eyed as can be. Petted him, talked to him, and I walked out the gate.
    About thirty minutes later, my Mom calls, tells Marvin that I need to get home ASAP; she told Marvin what was wrong, but he did not tell me. Thank God for that....
    Got home, and there is my Mom, pointing at him; crying, and she was lifting his head off the ground. He died in his tracks, chasining and running along the fence.
    Black Butt was 12 years old, and he lived a good life. He was a black lab. Marvin and I dug a a huge hole, and my Mom and Marvin wrapped in him plastic bags. That, I could not watch, and I could Not watch them put him in the ground.
    He is burried inside the yard, and I will get a marker for his grave. He was kind, and gentle, and asked nothing but to be loved, and a kind pat on the head, and to be put inside the utility room when ever it thundered.
    Thanks for letting me vent.

    Seawall....my heart aches for you. So very sorry to hear of your losing your Black Butt.
    I am sure it gives you some comfort that he was happily enjoying his yard when his time came....and that it is unlikely he suffered.

    ((((((((((((((((((seawall))))))))))))))) It is sooooo hard to lose our four legged friends.

    Oh Seawall (((hug)))) what a shock! I'm so very sorry that you lost your dear dog. I can't imagine the grief you feel due to the unexpectedness. It will indeed take time to get over it. However, from what you said, you were able to pet him, and talk to him one last time. And it sounds like he was active and pain free until the very end. He was playing and running and doing what dogs love to do. He did not suffer with an illness, and that will help you in time.

    My heart goes out to you. I will keep you in my prayers. (((((SEAWALL)))))

    {{{{{ Seawall }}}}} - you are not alone in your grief. Know that all your friends share your pain, but also that your sweet lab will be with you always and was blessed to have you as his "people."
