    Thanks Marleybone. Someone did send me that link and made it made me cry, but I now realize it had to be done. I would love to post a picture, but for some reason it is saying that the picture is too big. If someone knows how to resize it, please pm me your email address so I can get the picture to you
    I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either

    That made me cry 'cause while I was out of town recently, I placed my kitten at my aunty's house for my aunty's maid to care for, and I come back, the maid tells me it ran away. I was so upset that day.. it's not like it's dead or anything, but I loved it so much.. it was always with me everytime i post on FORT, now it feels so weird.

    Oh combat. I'm so sorry. It has to be one of the most difficult things to do. When you need to put a pet to sleep, you feel so alone in the decision. They can't speak for themselves and you have to make the choice of what you think is best for them. It's so difficult and heartbreaking. You did the right thing. It's rough, but you did. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Aww Combat, I am so sorry for you. Please know that you did the right thing and Sammy is no longer suffering. My brother's dog is really in bad shape, and he cannot bring himself to have Fletch put down. It breaks my heart to see a dog in obvious discomfort, and there is nothing I can do. Putting a pet down, is actually a very selfless and loving act.

    By the way, the pic is great!

    Wow, that was all the way back in February?? It doesnít seem like that episode was really 8 months ago!!! WOW. I remember it like it was yesterday.

    Powder had gone through a bout of vestibular syndrome about six months prior to Samís episode, and I remember how happy I was that some good (i.e., the passing of useful info along info to you guys) could come of that very scary time with Powder.

    Itís a pretty great thing, I think, that Sam was able to enjoy a full eight more months of a pampered life after that scary time, and Iím sure you guysíll will always cherish those months, too.

    Iím so proud of you for having the strength to put Samís comfort above your own, combat!!! Itís the very hardest thing in the world to do, but The Pomeranians and I support you completely in making the right decision for Sam.

    I canít say a thing that will make this any easier for you, but I sure do wish that I could. Just know that with time it will get better, and one day the thoughts of those fifteen awesome, irreplaceable, wonderful years that you had with Sam will overshadow thoughts of how doggoned difficult itís been here at the end of his life.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you, big-time, my good friend, and I hope youíll PM me whenever you need to talk or if you need anything at all.

    Thank you all so much for being here for me in my time of need. I am truly blessed to have such caring individuals to chat with. I know this will get better over time, but right now it sucks. I thank all of you once again for letting me post on and on about this sad occasion

    Based on the brief conversation you posted I feel compelled to say that I LOVE your dad. If he's that much fun in the hospital, he must be a blast at home. Best wishes for his speedy recovery. Keep us posted.
