    Dan the Man. Big black Lab who was 15 or 16. He couldn't even walk out to do his business. I had to help him out on a piece of plywood.. He looked at me and I swear he said Mike we can't do this again. My wife and I buried him in the back yard. I dug a hole so big, and I'm 6'6" I could hardly get out. But I kept on digging hoping I would stop crying.

    •  {{{{sankaty}}}} Were you waiting for a sign too? (0+ / 0-)

      I kept waiting for that look, that sign okay I am giving up and please let me go. I thought she'd just refuse to eat one day and that would be my sign. Never happened. She still wanted a bite of my pizza even the last week.

      It was the pain in her hips that did her in, too.

      The tears still come today when I think of letting her go.
