He was such a good dog. Found him collapsed after vomiting this morning. Apparently he was having some internal troubles. They just put him down a half hour ago.

Wish I could say more about my precious friend, but I'm still in shock over it. He was with me for 13 years and looked healthy as you could imagine. I thought he'd live forever.

I've got a 7 year old Jack Russell that I would do anything for.

I dread the day she is not around anymore.

I'll make sure to give her some extra frisbee tosses and some extra attention in Ollie's honor tonight.

Putting a dog down is hard enough when you can prepare for it, I can't imagine the shock you and your family are in.

Best wishes.

My little brother rang me last year during the Dallas game to tell me my dog had died.

Was away from home at the time.

Genuinely barely even managed a smile when Marshall scored that amazing TD, just had the wind sucked out of me by it.

I'm planning on getting my first dog this summer (I grew up with them, but I was young and my parents raised them).

I know how it feels to lose a dog, it sucks, nothing really helps. Time is the only thing that heals, but never fully.

Btw, **** people who say "Why don't you get another dog?" They've obviously never had one, and I just want to punch them in their dumb faces for it.

Good luck!

Sorry my friend, I make a modest donation to the local humane society every three months and the next one will have Ollie's name on it.

So sorry for your loss. That's the only negative about dogs - we typically outlive them. I lost a lab mix pound rescue I had for a dozen years. His photo and urn are on my bedroom dresser. Dogs are the epitome of unconditional love.

Wow, Taco. So sorry, man. Brutal news. Dogs make us so happy, and then break our hearts.

But, I always try to remember how dogs look at life. He wasn't worried about his age, dying or how much time he had left. He was worried about his next walk, his next treat, his next good time.

Mine is going to be 9 in Sept. For a Boxer, that's getting up there. Trying not to think about it, but if it's any consolation... at least yours passing happened quickly. That's how I want Bella to go. I want her to just drop over one day in a mid-sprint... which would be fitting of her personality.



Sorry, bro.

No other species manages unconditional love like dogs do. There is a reason Dog is God spelled backwards.

So sorry for your family's loss Isaac.

I'm sorry TJ.

Sounds like Ollie had a good life. 13 good years with an owner who obviously loved him.
