Well the thing I have been dreading has happened I had to put Max down today. He died in my arms. He was the best dog I ever had and was my best friend. He was a 10 year old Cane Corso. A loving yet fearless protector. There will never be another like him.I started taking him to shows when he was a pup at the advise of a trainer to help socialize him. I took him just for fun and before I knew it he was winning everything. He was the Canadian Molosser Association best of breed twice and was the top dog of breed in 2012. He also got his Canadian Championship. I am not a show dog person at all I just did it because people were scared of him at the dog parks so the trainer suggest taking him to dog shows. I will miss him and I am not sure if I will ever get another dog again. We had a bond that I have never had with any other dog. We were soul mates. Man I miss him.

Nothing hurts more, other than loosing a human family member. I’m huge dog lover so feel your pain. Our buddies are here for such a short time. That’s why we need to spoil the hell out of them while being around to make us laugh every day :)

His dad died on the vet's table. Back legs gave out and they gave some pain meds to get him up and walking again. Must have thrown a blood clot to heart or brain and died. They tried CPR but that was it. Very dramatic, but that was his style.

Sorry for your loss.

Very sorry, dude. Our fur kid IS our kid, and definitely getting grey.

Not much in this world is harder to process, but know that you were loved even more than you loved them, and they thrive on the good times. :)

Sorry bud. I too went through this last year, twice. I lost my 11 year old Rottweiler and my 13 year old Black Lab who was my best buddy, all within 6 months of one another.

Sorry to hear Mark. We just put $4500 in our dog to keep him going, but we thought it was going to be the end for him as well.

Really sorry to read this. We are such a dog family so this hurts me to read and brings up lots of memories.They aren't just animals, they're family and it's so hard to say goodbye. We've done it quite a bit and it never gets easier. Take time to grieve and just remember how lucky he was that you gave him the happy healthy life that they all deserve but don't always get. Knowing that he felt love from you hopefully helps you right now.

Condolences to you and your family! It’s a sad thing to get over. I think losing your pet can be even harder in many cases than losing a family member. They are so dependent on you and loyal that it’s heart breaking. When our golden died, I would tear up for a long time whenever he came up in a conversation.

Sorry to hear that Mark. I have heard the same story three times in the past month now from others. Bummer is that dogs just don't last with us relatively that long. Their blind love is unbelievable.

Sorry, Mark. Sounds like he had a great life. Not that that helps how you’re felling right now.
