Yes, we had him cremated.

Putting his ashes on a shelf in the living room with a collage of pictures of him along with a letter my daughter wrote for him.

I'm sorry to hear that. It sounds like he was well-loved and cared for. ♡

My family growing up frequently adopted older dogs from the pound, and whenever the inevitable happened, it hurt every time because I got attached to them all.

I had to that at least 10 times overt the past 45 years. And now we have very old Labrador who has been with us for almost 14 years. His time is coming, though he's quite active for a very very old dog.

You have my deepest sympathy and EMPATHY.

All my animals were rescues except for one. They always chose me & I like to think they had happiness & love while they were with me. I remember each one with love but, yes, there was grief.

I've got the ashes for two of my kitties on the fireplace mantle. They are in nice wooden boxes with their names engraved.

I'm sorry for your loss. We know we'll out live them, yet we enjoy them immensely as family and can't imagine life without them. Thanks for giving him a good home and a great life with love. Lucky kitty. RIP good old guy.

I don't see him making it through the day. It's also the second anniversary of my father's passing.

You just get so emotionally attached to them as they become such a part of your family.
Sorry about your loss, Pedro. Losing a pet is just as painful as losing a human friend/family member, because pets are so like and so part of the family. I still think about the loss of my 20 year old Noble Macaw, McGee, six years ago last February on occasion, even though I now have a lovely 6 year old pet female Congo African Grey Parrot named Aziza, who gives me an incredible amount of joy...and laughter.
