my mom's dog Rusty passed away

I'm so sad.  My mom's dog Rusty past away earlier.  :'(  My step-dad came home and found him half in/half out of his dog house.  I know in my heart that it was a good thing since he had really bad arthritis and didn't get around well but it bothers me that he was alone when it happened.  When I lived at home still he was my boy and we would go for walks and play. 

I'm sorry, Mirrya.  How tough for all of you.

Hopefully it was a gentle passing.  We cannot always be there when those we love pass on.  I am sure that Rusty was well and kindly loved, and knew it, every day of his life.

I sympathize.  I wasn't there for my furkid, but my husband was.  She went in her sleep and that was the answer to all my hopes and prayers for her; just "checked out" and kept on breathing.  My hubby took her to the vet to try to save her, and they told him she just wasn't there any more, and had to put her body to rest (her mind was already resting.)

It was so hard on him to be there, even as gentle as it was.  Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise when we aren't with them when they go... I'd have loved to be there for mine, but she would not have known I was there, and I had a long life of love with her that I know she treasured.

I'm sorry mirrya1, he's gone to doggy heaven and is probably having a whale of a time with all the other doggies, free of pain and suffering and full of boundless energy.

BTW - you can't beat a "Rusty" - I've had 2 Rustys in my life, 2 gorgeous Irish Red Setters and my partner had a mongrel called Rusty too.  We decided that when we grow up (I'm 37 he's 52) we'll have a couple of Rustys.
