NWR: Lost a Fur Baby

Well it happened. My family lost our first fur baby. I'm so torn up and I never thought I'd be this emotional over losing him. He was only six years old (GSD), but had caught a tick borne disease one year ago and it wasn't caught soon enough. Please, I can't beg enough, keep up with the tick and heartworm medicine and take them to a vet asap if you suspect something.

I wasn't sure what topic to post this under, so I chose "Beauty and Attire" because of just how fashionable he was in this photo. Love you Wally. I'm going to miss your love of sticks, playing with Georgie, nudging my hand up in the air when you wanted pets, and so much more. I'm so glad you're not in pain anymore. <3

If you have any fur baby pics - past and present - please feel free to share.

    So sorry for your loss! its a terrible thing to go through, thinking of you and your family.

    here's a pic of my boo Buddy with a bandana on. hes not as fashionable as Wally, mostly because he won't keep anything on longer than it takes for the picture.

    So sorry to hear this. I volunteer in a shelter and see a lot of dogs lose to heartworms, so I second staying up to date on the medicines!

    Wally looks lovely. Persephone and I will be thinking of you.

    I'm so sorry! I can't imagine losing a pet. I've been dreading that day since we brought our Teddy home. If this isn't a PSA for keeping up to date on meds, I don't know what is.

    Aww my condolences. I grew up with at least seven pets at a time and have always had several myself, so I've been there countless times. It always tears me up and it doesn't get easier. But we always rescue another pet, sort of in honor of the one we lost, and that helps.

    Thank you everyone. I thought I was done crying, but it looks like I've got a bit more in me. I'm so thankful for how friendly and loving other people and parents of fur babies are. And I'm also super thankful for FH supplying me with a constant source of tissues.

    My cuddle buddy... I'm so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my golden retriever my family had while I was growing up. It's such a hard thing. Hang in there!

    OMG I am so sorry! My GSD was stolen for a couple of days 2 years ago and I thought I would never get him back. Because of that experience I already know I won't be able to get out of bed for days when I lose him permanently. There is no shame in any amount of grieving when you lose your fur babies!

    Aw, what a darling looking poochie. I'm sorry for your loss. Pets give unconditional love to us, a very special love that you'll always have in your heart and memories of Wally.
