    My rottie passed away a few days ago. Kinda knew he was gonna go soon though. Hell he lived 8 years after bein hit by a UPS truck and losing his leg.
    At 11 he hung in there pretty good and was the best dog a man could have.

    Also Ugly Sr. is still having problems with blood clots in his legs and it dont look like it is gonna get better any time soon.

    Found out today My gradfather has a bad valve in his heart and pollups in his colon. Now some of you old timers on here are sure to understand heart conditions so I am proud to say he has lived 20 years on a 5 way buypass and has been through WWII and Korea.


    OHH these are the times that try ones resolve.

    Indeed ........ I've already been through much of what is in your future and it is a day by day situation.

    I just thought back and I've lost ten canine pals so far. It sucks and the only thing I can suggest is to get another very soon.

    The original can't be replaced but nothing can heal the heart like a pup.

    Better to have loved and lost,
    than never to have loved at all.

    Chin up, and hold onto the memories, thats how we live on, in the minds and hearts of those who love us.
    Prayers sent up Big

    I hate it when people hit those kind of patches in their lives. I guess it is a requirement of living that all of us will have to suffer through many of these strings of misfortune. The only bright side is we are probably much better off then Job.

    I hope it gets better for you soon Big Ugly.

    I came in a little late here, I wanted to say I hope things get better for you, but didn't know how to put it. Seems some other members managed it better than I could.

    The ugly home? The late Martin Madell, owner of a gun store in Phoenix, and Nam Vet once looked at me, pointed to his own face and said 'ugly, not stupid'. :) He was of course neither.

    Like what Sarg said. "The original can't be replaced but nothing can heal the heart like a pup."

    We lost two of our best friends this last year too. It's painful to lose a friend that has given you so many years of faithful unquestioning love. :(

    Hang in there BU, remember that it's darkest just before the dawn. Better days are coming! That which doesn't kill us, will make us stronger.

    The one thing we can all say is that none of us is immune to what you are going through. A loss of any "loved one" is terrible enough, but when it comes all at once, it's hard to hold onto our faith and that is when we need to the most. Prayers being sent for you and your family and your loss.
