    Please send some Smoke and Prayer for my little girl Cassady.
    She is on her star journey.

    It was so long ago that this little girl came into my life, i can barely remember.
    I remember coming home from a hard days work and going to the babysitter to pick up my son.
    While there talking with the babysitter, i was being pestered by this beautiful little brindle bundle of fur who was seeking attention from this new person.
    I picked her up and sat her on my lap where she proceeded to kiss my face all over like i was someone she hadnt seen in years.
    The babysitter informed me that she was the last one of a litter of four and if noone took her soon, she may have to go to the pound. I wasnt about to let such an obvious beautiful soul spend one second there.
    I was rewarded a thousand fold for my action with selfless love, devotion and understanding. This little one taught me more about what it is to be a truly good being than anything thus far in my life.

    We spent alot of years watching sunsets from the porch, watching TV from the safety of a warm blanket.
    We had almost 22 years together.
    I don't regret one second of having you in my life. I am grateful for it.
    I will forever miss you.
    You were the Best.

    On Thursday March 15 th it was clear to us that our beloved companion Cassie would only get weaker and deteriorate into more pain. We took her to the Vet, but with her being so old and frail, there was nothing he could really do for her and as a family unit we decided to put her to sleep to avoid having her suffer.

    Karda announces with regret and relief
    the ascension of one more gentle soul
    to eternal life.

    Go in peace, Cassie.

    I am sorry for loss. I am a animal lover and my dogs are like children to my wife and i. We don't have any children so we spoil our dogs and treat them as if they were children. I know this is hard for you but you had 20 something years with her and that is a blessing. I feel for you brother. Best wishes.

    22 years...she wasn't spoiled for all that time was she? :p

    A tough day = losing a pet after all those years.....but you gave that dog a great life by making her a part of your family. What you got back in return goes without saying. Condolences.

    Not any more than any daddys little girl would be. And she deserved every bit. ;)

    Thats what took me until today to write this thread.
    I've half expected her to keel over for years now, but her heart was just too big and strong. Her body gave out before her heart and mind. I had hoped she would go in her sleep as old ladies do. I never wanted to have to put her down. In the end it was a choice between my comfort or hers. Easy choice for me. She always gets my best.

    Thank you everyone!

    Feel for ya. Same reason I put my best friend down a few years back. Felt like crap for weeks. Just keep the memories alive of better days.

    I'm glad for you that you could enjoy the company of her for so long. I won't be that fortunate. Koga, my boxer, developed a kidney and pancreatic failure after a rickettsia infection. I've decided to put him to sleep. He would be 3 y.o. next April.

    sorry to hear that -- once they're in your heart, doesn't matter how long, losing a loved pet is right up there with losing a family member.

    22 years is a long time to get to know a critter, and it makes it hard to let go. 22 years is also a blessing - I am sorry for your loss but am glad you were able to enjoy that time.
