Re: Good Dog........................
Its very hard to loose a dog that has been close to you , i lost a K9 that i worked with for a while , was poisened and we had to have him put to sleep. I had to put down was a little "Red Creek" beagle named Sam , he has 14yrs old and had been a long time companion from my child hood , he was the first true best friend I ever had and like your the old age was getting the better of him , I was a big tough 20yr old bad ass that had a reputation as such but I cried like a little girl for days over that dog.
I'll keep you and your family in my prayers , its tough for kids as they don't quite understand the whole thing but your right its part of life
