OregonVet: Did you not know any better? And who the hell celebrates Thanksgiving on Tuesday?

Subby here, my boy didn't die from turkey. He had a tumor rupture a blood vessel and bled internally. Wagged his tail until the end and died in my arms while my father and I comforted him. He wasn't in any pain and didn't give any signs of fear. I added the article to remind other Farkers how to have a safe Thanksgiving with their pooch(es)

OregonVet: Loaded Six String: Subby here,

I felt like a dick after my boobs. I apologize. I know what it's like. After trolling FARK for ten years I just reflex in certain ways. No excuse and I hope you find comfort soon.

Well, wish I could retract the harsher part of my reply. It takes guts and integrity to apologize. Well spoken, sir.

Loaded Six String: Thank you all for your kind words and fond rememberances. Work was a little tough to get through this morning, but I'm feeling better already. We're going to take him to be cremated in about 20 minutes and I'll tell him he's a good boy one more time.

Again, thank you all and have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

You too, hun. I hope you and yours have a better holiday season; just remember how wonderful of a life that he lived because of you and your love for him... He'll be waiting for you on the Rainbow Bridge, tail a'waggin' :)

I'm so sorry subs. Being with them when they go is so incredibly hard but you'll be glad you were.

[Sad]SB Time

I grew up with a pit bull mix we took in off the streets Tampa. We found him at the soup kitchen of the homeless shelter my mom worked at. It was a renovated firehouse, so he became Sparky the Firehouse Wonder Dog (I was ten, what do you want). He had mange and such bad heartworms that he wasn't expected to survive the treatment that we couldn't afford to get for him anyway. Word got out that we'd taken this dog in and he needed this treatment and the volunteers and staff at the homeless shelter raised the money for it. He survived the treatment and lived a long happy life with us for 14 years until we had to put him down.

I was there with him when he went. Our eyes met as his were drooping shut for the last time and he gave me this look that I'll never forget, his eyes got kind of soft and I swear he smiled. Like he was saying, "Hey, don't worry about it. It's all good. I had a farking blast with you. Thanks for everything."

That was about ten years ago and I haven't been able to get another dog. Don't know if I ever will.


I'll be thinking of you today, subs.
