    We are very sad to tell you all that we put Eddie down last night. He was acting a little off yesterday, and collapsed last night, we took him to the ER clinic. They discovered that he had several masses and the one on his spleen ruptured. He was too unstable for surgery. Mike & I are obviously very saddened and Molly was searching the house last night and this morning for him. We know that we gave him the best that we could and will miss him.

    OMG! How absolutely terribile. As a canine handler and l-o-n-g time dog person, my heart goes out to all three of you guys (Molly included). It certainly sounds as though it was quick. But that doesn't make it any less poignant.

    So sorry for your loss and sorry for Molly too. Years ago when we lost our 1st Yorkie, our little Maltese layed for days & days by the front gate just waiting for her to return.

    I am so sorry you had to put Eddie to sleep. I understand your pain and feel very badly for you both and Molly. It's not easy but it was the right thing to do for your beloved furbaby.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss of Eddie. You did him a kindness, but that still doesn't fill the void. Give Molly some scritches for me.

    MisterD21 If you take me serious, it's your problem

    The choice to "put them down", while is humane and often the best way to end the suffering and pain our furry friends are in, is never an easy choice to make. I know you did the right thing, and the pain and suffering is gone..

    Rejoice in knowing that a friend came to walk him across the rainbow bridge.. and now they frolic in the sunshine eternal...

    I am so sorry that this happened to Eddie. It is never easy to say goodbye to a much loved member of the family. Extra love for poor Molly, who does not understand.

    It's horrible to lose a furbaby! I'm sure my Smokey was there with other @ddict fur kids to welcome Eddie. Bandit, Cocoa, and Sunny send "I'm sorry" woofs to Molly and I'm sending wishes for extra scritches for her.

    How sad. I am always heartbroken to hear that one of our own has lost their furbaby. Cherish the happy memories and know that you would not have missed one moment of that time together just to save the sorrow you feel right now....the tears are the interest that you pay for the unconditional love you shared with Eddie!!
