    Pom...sorry to hear of your loss. And I wanted to thank you for having such a big heart to adopt a dog who needed a new home, that is very kind of you *hug*

    I'm so sorry to hear about your Pom. You gave him a loving home when he needed it most. What a big heart you have. He was so lucky to have you for a short time. Take care, wicked good Pomeraniac.

    Pom, I am so sorry. My dog is 15 years old and he just had seizure this morning. Fortunately, he's still hanging in there. I know how hard it is to have an elderly dog that you become so attached to.

    I have degenerative disc disease in my neck and have had 3 surgeries to put in plates and screws and now have arthritis there. I was prescribed Vioxx years ago, and my blood pressure shot up horribly. It's a shame, because it really helped me. But I just couldn't handle it..... when I heard about the recall, I was thankful I realized early on that it wasn't for me.

    Pom, I am so sorry about your little guy. Dogs, or any pet for that matter, completely fill our lives with love and affection. I have owned 6 dogs and have gone through the grieving process with 4 of them, and the last time I waited 5 years to get a new dog. I only relented because my daughter and Mr. Roseskid were pleading with me. I finally caved, and I immediately wondered why I waited so long. So, maybe in a few months you might want to think of getting another pomeranian? In the meantime, know that you gave him a very loving home and a wonderful life, and try to comfort yourself with that. My thoughts are with you.

    DJeter, I wish you and your baby the best, too.

    Oh Pom, I'm so sorry. I am sharing this for the sake of empathy - I'm not trying to suck the wind out of your sails.

    I had a mini-Yorkie for a few years, he was what they call a a "velcro" dog - one that I carried everywhere. All the books say don't let them become "velcro", but I did. He was my baby. (I'm not sure if he EVER took a step on his own.) He was all of 2.5 pounds full-grown. He had seizures. Just horrible to watch. I love my little bogart so much, and I didn't know if putting him down was the best for him. I mean, he was healthy most of the time. Bogart's health problems were occurring just as Bruce and I were splitting up. I refused to leave him with Bruce, so I not-so-secretly moved him into my apartment. If anyone has ever been around a Yorkie, they are the loudest, yappiest yip-yip dogs ever. I decided to try to find him a better home. A place with a yard where he could play (like Bruce's) - and I think I did. I was referred to a nice young just-married couple. I sure wish I knew if he is still with us.

    Pom, I don't pretend to know your circumstances or feelings, but DO feel so sad for you. It has to be a rough day.

    Pom -- your little guy couldn't have had a better mom.

    And everyone else with such painful illnesses (arthritis,degenerative disc disease, etc.), I'm so sorry your entire existence centers around pain. I know I couldn't deal with that. I hope they come up with a new medication that works. Hell, I hope they come up with a cure.

    ETA: JD -- I remember you telling us that story before, but it's still sad. I'm sorry.

    Pom, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. You are a very good person to take in elderly animals and give them love and a good home so they can enjoy their twilight years.

    Sorry Pom . Our dog is so much a part of our family that I can imagine how hard today is. It is like losing a family member.
