We had to put down my great friend, Goldie the Wonder Poodle, a couple weeks ago. She got a rare disease. 8 years of great companionship. She just loved going in the rv. We brought a new companion into our family two nights ago.


He's a miniature poodle, should get to be about 10-12 lbs. Buck seemed to be a fitting name so that's it. More pictures here: http://www.facebook.com/album....065462&id=1075779581

Sorry to hear about Goldie. bummer good friends are hard to find and our pets seem to love us even when I forget to feed them before bed.

Enjoy Buck, growing up my mom always had miniature poodles around. I always felt bad for the male ones after she'd bring them home from the groomers with red ribbons in his hair.

Hey Bob so sorry for your loss. It is never easy losing a great friend. I have had to say good bye to more buds than I care to recall but I have been lucky, I always was able to hug them and say good bye before they past. I am always thankful for that. Spoil the heck out of Buck.

Ed

Thanks guys, Buck is doing great so far. I'm sure he'll be wonderful. My brother, a veterinarian, believes there are no bad dogs. I guess I go along with that since all my dogs have been great in their own ways.

Hey Bob,
I have now felt the same pain as you with Goldie. Last Thursday I had to say good bye to my 7 yr old Newfoundland JR. He was my very first show dog and when I retired him from showing he became a therapy dog vistiting the nursing homes and the kids at the hospital. I was able to say a final good bye. My pain is double duty because he loved the motorhome and always wanted to be in it. We left for a dog show on Thursday after he was gone and missed him being with us and now we are home and have to go thru that process again. JR as a will be missed for he was always giving.
It is helping to have my other dogs here to help with the process of moving forward. But his will be forever in our hearts.
Ed

Sorry Ed. It's hard to drive with eyes all watery too.

".....would one rather loose a good dog or....( what?)?.....hummmm one of those decisions"....When faced with these decisions that we and others have to make in their lives.....my mom used to say "at least is isn't/wasn't a child"......which brings things into perspective for me. I sure miss my coon hounds----specially when things get a little tight for me.....prayer can/will help but there wasn't anything like a cold nose and a warm dog to make life's issues easier to manage......'course there is a very small dog that lives with us now and I keep trying to befriend her....but it isn't the same as a 80 # coon hound...........geofkaye and the Rivercity Girls....[and Tinkerbell the bug catcher......]
