Just a week and a half before his 14th birthday on July 4th, while our country celebrates its independence i will be saying goodbye to the best friend i could have ever asked for. I got George just a few months after my mother died when i was 9, and he was my comfort. I've had him more then half of my life and at 23 years old now i feel like im losing yet another family member. Always just the happiest and sweetest black lab who even at a hundred pounds would jump on my bed and sleep right next to me every night. Ive been preparing myself for this day, but the pain i feel could never be prepared for. George fights everyday to enjoy his life and he still genuinely does, but no matter how hard i try to ease his pain he looks at me as if to say "it's my time" The one sure thing for the past 14 years has been my george waiting for me with the fastest wagging tail when i come home, the walks around the blocks, the trips to the dog park and the that big tongue with the black dot right in the center of it drooling on my pillow. Well old pal, you've had a great life and youve done things for mine that i cant even begin to thank you for. I can honestly say the last 14 years have been filled with so much happiness and love for you, and i will miss you more then you could ever know. My heart is broken, you were and will always be my best friend, my comfort, and my dog. I love you george.

I am so sorry you will be losing your precious George. He sounds like a wonderful dog.
I know how difficult it is to let go of our babies. I am trying so hard to find peace and comfort in all of the cherished memories I have of my beautiful cat Cheeseburger. He shared my life and my heart for 10 years. I was blessed to have him. There was a point where I looked into Cheesey's eyes and it was as if he was saying "I'm so tired Mommy - I need to rest." Cheeseburger had lung cancer and he crossed over on May 4th 2008. Please know you have friends here who care and understand. Bless you George...You are truly loved.

I am so sorry that you had to say good bye to your wonderful friend George. I know just how hard that is because my Aurich was 13 years and 5 months when I had to make that decision. He and I both knew it was time and he told me in his own way. They give us so much unconditional love and all they ever ask in return is our love. I have always felt that it is the greatest gift we can ever give to let them run free with dignity when the time comes that their life has no quality and joy left in it. In return for that loving gift they become our guardian angels. May this bring you peace. May the wonderful memories you shared bring smiles again one day. Love and peace, AurichWolf Kathy
