|Well, we had Shortdog put to sleep this afternoon. The vet was nice enough to let him pass away in my arms/lap. He died at 3: 57pm, July 1, 2013. This is very hard for me. I've had him since I was 4 or 5, and he was just 3 weeks away from his 16th birthday. I really wanted him to make it to his birthday, but he was in just too much pain.
Before he passed, I told him I love him and thanks for being my dog. Afterwards, I told my boyfriend, who was sweet enough to be in there with me, that he's in no more pain.
I miss him terribly, but I'm glad he's not suffering. Although he was annoying at times, he was a great dog-sweet, loyal, protective, and a great cuddler.
But yeah, he gets to see some family and neighbor dogs who have passed: General, Colby, Abby, Bocephus, Wendy, Pangy, etc.
Love you, Shortdog, forever and ever!
