Last Tuesday we lost our beloved Hater the dog. She was 18 and a half years old. We miss her dearly! Hater was a beloved companion and a great watch dog. She lived a great life. Many, many walks in the park and car rides. We will always cherish those memories. Hater will always live in our hearts.
I’m so sorry for your loss. She lived such a good long life! I hope your hearts heal.Bobby dogMember
Sorry for your loss. What a long and wonderful live she had with you.
Thank you so much! We got her ashes back today and it was very emotional.Jackie BParticipant
RIP, faithful pup. :'( <3anonymouslyMember
Sorry, I had to say goodbye to my red peke recently (age16)
It never gets easy.
I so hope that they go to a better place and that we get too see them again. I hope that dogs that have passed before them are there to greet them on the other side.
I am not religious, but it is times like this that I hope that I am wrong.

Thank you, Marie
I know we don’t always agree, but I know we love animals and are passionate about taking care of them.
Actually, he was suffering from dementia, more so the past few months. When you have a pack, more than one dog, it is important to keep an eye on them. The dogs with cognitive disorders give off inappropriate body language. My young terrier started to attack him, this is not unusual, it is instinctive.
I did all I could to keep him comfortable….
I found a helpful site regarding canine dementia: http://dogdementia.com/blog/
You are right….we don’t always agree but it is our love for our dogs that “joins us”.
A number of years back, we adopted a 7 or 8 year old foxhound. In a few years, she had strange things happen: she would walk to the kitchen & stand nose to pantry. One night, I heard her crying (she slept in livingroom, her choice) and she had wedged herself between the tv stand & couch. One day, I was on my computer, heard a dog drinking, turned around and no dog at the water bowl. She had peed on the hardwood floor & was drinking it. Not taste testing but lapping. Then, we were at a ball field & I noticed dirt on TOP of her paws. She couldn’t “right” her paws. This all happened in quick succession. My vet thought it was a brain tumor but I wonder about dementia.
I didn’t know that about the body language. Luckily, neither of my other two did anything to Emma. Thanks for the link. My oldest is 10.5yr old pbgv Boone. Knock on wood, healthy!
Hi Hater’s Mom-
I’m very sorry for your loss. She was obviously very loved. I know this is a sad time. Take care of yourself. ❤️😓
Anonymously So sorry for your loss.
Thank you C4C!
Oh, you’re welcome. How is Molly doing?
Thank you for asking C4C. Molly is doing very well. She had a few days where she just laid around. I know she missed our girl!
Yeah, it’s tough on their canine siblings as well. Hope things are getting a little easier. Take care!pitloveParticipant
