In loving memory



Logan passed away tonight. He was having neurological issues and they finally escalated to the point where he was in a lot of pain and I had to do the only humane thing I know how to do. This blog was named for him and will continue to live on in his memory as a tribute to him.

Oh my God- Oh I am so sorry about this. I know how much Logan meant to you.

He was a beautiful dog and what a great life he had with you... and then with you and GG.

Please know that I am sending you every good thought and wish from here.

Aw, Josh, I'm so sorry.

You did the right thing. I know it doesn't make it any easier, but you must know it was the only choice you could make.

It's really a bitch isn't it? I mean they come into our lives, they need us so desperately and before you know it, they take over our hearts. It's like day by day they own us more and more, and then one day you have to say goodbye.

There is something so genuine about the love of a dog.

I had to do the same thing last year with Thurber, and while I can honestly say that I miss him with all my heart and soul to this day, I know that he is better off now.

Take care (and much peace and strength to you),

Tengrain

We have had to put down 4 of our wonderful extended family members -it never gets easy. I hope you can remember the wonderful times you had with your pet!

Had a spate of young cats from a surprise! litter succumb to distemper . . . I ended up being the shovelmeister in a bad Shakespearean tragedy.
Each death was difficult.
Learning to say "goodbye" to loved ones is I think the most elementary and yet possibly the hardest assignment for all of us, the one none of us can pretend we know.

I trust you're a better student than I've been so far ... My condolences to you.

My thoughts and best wishes are with you and your family. It is never easy, but you helped him so he wouldn't suffer, and that's the kindest thing we can for our loyal companions.

My condolences, Josh. I lost my cat Roz a little over a year ago, and it's a terrible ordeal to have to suffer. I know Logan had a fine life with you. Take care.

Spartacus said...

I've not been to your site much. Tengrain, let me know of your loss via e-mail. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.

LiberalDemDave said...

Christopher said...

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss.

There are no words to adequately express the grief of losing a beloved dog companion.

We lost our 16 year old Golden Retriever, Brenda, in 2005 and I still can't discuss it. We keep Brenda's ashes in a beautiful, hand-made wooden box, resting among treasured photos of family and friends.

I hope one day you find comfort and peace.

Bing said...

Such a sad loss. I'm very sorry. I had to put down a pet a few months ago, and it's always hard but always humane. I hope that you can take comfort in the fact that you will notice a lot less suffering around your house. That's what helped me with my decision.
