    Default We had to say goodbye to Rudy on Tuesday

    We had hoped to make it just a few more days...a few more weeks, but it became obvious on Monday night that he wouldn't make it through the week. He was unable to walk up or down the few stairs we have in our house, and he was unable to lie down. My husband spent most the night sitting with him on the floor, because that gave him some support for his back and tummy to lean on him. We called the vet and scheduled the appointment for Tuesday afternoon, but by that morning as I was heading off to work, Rudy wasn't able to hardly move. He was doing that stiff, statue kind of thing with his head held high. So my husband called then, and took him right in. I wasn't able to go..watching that would have been too tough. Tim stayed with him until the end, brought his poor little body back to bury in a special place in our yard, where we can have him near and dear to us, and plant a tree in his memory. We sure loved that little bugger! We have a "Rudy hole" in our hearts, that feels like it'll be there forever. I know time will help, but there's so many empty places in our house right now, that being here is hard. Thanks to all for your help and advise, it's been a help to us . We are going to be looking soon for a Rudy-too, and plan to be very careful this time in choosing a breeder. Again, thanks to all!

    I am so sorry to hear about Rudy. It is so hard to lose our beloved companion. He is now running free without pain. Hugs to you and your husband on your loss.

    I am sorry to read about Rudy. I know words cant help the pain you feel or the emptiness of your home. I am sure Rudy knew how much you both loved and cared for him.

    Run free Rudy

    You gave him much love and now he is happy, running in the green meadows with my poor Flopy who disappeared one year ago and with all the other dogs. From this paradise, he will look after you. He knows he is in your heart for ever.
    Courage to you

    Oh, I am so sorry. What a difficult ending for you, but he is at rest now. How lovely that he will be nearby in the garden for you.

    When you are ready, I am sure some people here can help with breeder recommendations.
