MAN, many condolences...Guiness looked like a real sweetheart.
The sad part about having a dog, is their shorter-than-human life span. I look at my dog and think "Man, I hope you live to be 50"....
Sorry for guiness's bad fortune.

So sorry to hear of Guinness' passing. She catching frisbees in that big green park in the sky now. God Bless.

Thanks everyone for their kind thoughts.
One note to other dog owners: My vet now suggests using advantage (or front line) 12 months a year. Not just in the warm months. Especially up here in the North East where Lyme disease is at epidemic levels.
Perhaps as her final "heroic" act, her passing can save the lives of some future dogs.
Once again, Thanks everyone. You've made all this a little easier.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I just got home from work and on the way I stopped at the vet and got Frontline for my dog and my 2 cats. I've been where you are and I know it's hard. Hang in there.

"Such a loving couple, we used to be"
"That was before, the end of our world, that was before, the end of our world".
I am truly sorry for your loss. Not a day goes by after five years that I do not think about or miss our beautiful and kind loving dog Tucker and my deepest sympathies goes out to you in your time of need.
I know Guinness misses you as well.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. She was blessed to have her loved ones with her when she passed. Loosing a cherished pet is so hard, I wish you and your family tranquility and healing.

So sorry to hear about your loss. Mr. Smiley and I have made a small donation in Guiness's name at
to help get the word out about how terrible this can be, and to help find treatments.
If anyone is interested they also have a link on the site to sponsered internet vendors that you can sign up to have vendors make donations to this charity automatically when you shop.
If people pre-order their "Tiki Modern" from Barnes and Noble after signing up through the charity partnership link, a small donation will be made.

As someone who lost their animal companion of 14 years (my cat Lucy) just last fall, I can relate to your loss. Among the grieving processes I went through, I found it very therapeutic to write a memorial for her. I put one on the web page of the animal nutritionist who doubled her life as a testimonial. But had I not done that, I would have probably used this site to do it:
Sorry I did not see this thread earlier. I would have sent some good mana along. So I will simply send it to you and your family now instead. So sorry for your loss.
