Sorry to hear that. It's tough decision to make. you don't want to wait too long, but you don't want to be to soon either. I got lucky with my GSD. He made it perfectly clear it was time.

I feel quite certain that your friend has enjoyed his years with you Mr Pete. Obviously you have enjoyed your time with him. Sorry to hear you're facing such a tough task....... Ain't it funny how tough old SOBs are so soft hearted about their pets.

I suspect the daughter is going to be all over you for a puppy, even with two other dogs. And I feel for them too. They're also going to miss their friend.

Did old black lab have a name......Mr. Pete..?

I had to have my Yellow Lab put down two years ago....She was only 8. A month earlier our Vet said she was in perfect health I sure miss my Rosie :u:

Never found out if it was cancer or poison......

My wife missed her so much she talked to a counselor during one of her visits to MD Anderson. About a month later my wife comes home with 2 puppies. Sisters, one a Yellow Lab and the other sister, a Fox-coat Lab. The Wife is happy so I'm happy, too.
