Our 14 1/2 year old German Shorthair Pointer had to be put to sleep yesterday. He was the best dog I've ever found. Smart, loyal, very protective of my wife and sons, and a fantastic bird dog.... His mind and spirit were still sharp as ever, but old age caught up with his body, His rear legs were giving out; he'd try his best but his body just couldn't do it any more. He was probably in some pain too...

We found a vet that came to the house (He really hated trips to the vet's office..) and he passed away in his bed with my wife and I with him.

Even though I know that it was the right thing to do, it still saddens me greatly.. I don't know if dogs go to heaven, but I surely do hope to see him again on the other side...

:-( :-( :-( :-(
