Looking at Bear's picture, I can see he was a magnificent boy. What a great joy it must have been for you to share 13 years with him.
Bear was very lucky to have you, and to also have Nika too.

In August of this year, my 12 year old Doberman Leya collapsed, and like your Bear was not able to get up and walk.
Like you, I had to make the unthinkable decision to let her go. You are right, it is the hardest thing to do, but we do it for them, because we love them so much and don't want them to suffer.

Bear was surrounded by your love and the love of Nika until the very end and that is such a gift you gave him.

I am so sorry for your loss.....

I feel your pain.

I put my precious cat Dutchess (20 years old) to sleep on Oct. 13/10. I had her with me for the past 15 years. ( Also on June 27/10 I put my baby Muffin (a cat)(15 years old) to sleep also. She had mouth cancer. It was sudden and quick. The past few months I have been an emotional wreck. I understand exactly how you feel.

I am now left with (1) furry baby named Bart who is 20 years old and has kidney disease too. I am praying that he lives for a while longer. I do not want to do this again for a long time.

We had a special relationship that I was blessed with and I will never forget her or the time we had together. I miss her so much.

I too was there with her at the end, talking and patting her. Telling her I loved her and that she was a good cat. I swear she knew the end was near.

For Dutchess it was quick. She had the sedative, went to sleep (she snored too) and then the other injection and it was over.

I know she is at peace. In the end she had kidney disease and seizures (on meds for both) and then she had trouble walking too. I could not let her live like that.

Joe, we both made the only decision that responsible owners and lovers of our pets can do. I truly believe our beloved pets know that too and would tell us if they could talk.

Remember all the good times you had with Bear Man. He knew you loved him and he loved you.
