    Condolences on your loss SnowRooster. I cried my eyes out that last time I lost a pet.

    Terribly sorry for your loss, @SnowRooster. Patches looks like such a sweet boy.

    Earlier this week marked six months since I said goodbye to my best little friend, Brewski. Surprised just how much it still hurts me, but your tears gradually turn into smiles (with admittedly, more tears) knowing you gave Patches the gift of a wonderful life.

    I hope your pain is lessened knowing the only thing Patches knew was love. Hang in there.

    So sorry for the loss of your friend.

    I was chosen by Buddy the cat at the SPCA years ago, and he was with me almost 16 years. He's gone now, but the love and friendship we had was great!

    I feel your pain at the loss.

    Losing a pet will bring the toughest of men to their knees. It's crushing. Know you did your part to make his life the best.
    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Very sorry for your loss.......... The furry ones tend to make the best friends. Just remember that you guys got to enjoy the ride together for a little while and it was a good run.

    Rest In Peace Lil'Patches. I haven't been on much lately and just now saw this thread. Losing a beloved pet is very tough. Sorry for your loss.

    Dang sorry to hear. You did what was best for the pup. I’ve had several leave me. The reunion will be marvelous.

    You’ll both meet again...I assure you.

    Rest In Peace Patches! It is obvious that you two had a great run together and you did the best you could for Patches especially in the end. It's always the hardest right thing to do. Patches is resting in the Shady Green on the other side waiting for you. I know I will get buried in a whole pack of critters when I get there myself.
