    Beautiful 5 year old Rottweiler boy. We thought he was recovering from an eye and ear infection, he just stopped eating and started deteriorating fast. Got him back to the vet and prepared myself for the worst.
    I was really disappointed in lack of help we got from the vet. The wife and I felt his prospects of recovering weren't good and made the decision to not let him suffer any more.
    Lots of tears and alcohol last night.

    So sorry for your loss. The unexpected and premature losses hurt so much. Sending supportive thoughts your way.

    My sympathies. 5 yrs old is way too young to lose a pet you love. Sounds like the vet was/is a jerk. Don

    Sorry for your loss. I'm sure most of us know how hard it is to say
    goodbye to our pets. This is the price we must pay to have them
    brighten our lives.

    Ah, Maxx...... I am so very sorry. There is really nothing I can say. My older boy is 4 years 8 mo now and the thought of losing him would be devastating.
    Stay strong, knowing you did everything possible, given what you knew at the time.

    When I get a new pup, I always start preparing myself. Their lives are so short to begin with it is a reminder to me to pack in as much fun and love as I can.

    Remember were the incredible good times.

    I really appreciate everyone's thoughts and support.
    We lost our previous Rott to cancer at age 7, now this. I really love the breed...something about both of them that was just different from the other dogs I have had in the past. I just don't know what to think right now.

    This hit me right in the feels this morning. My in laws have a 11 year old rottie who I became extremely close with when I lived with them. He’s starting to slow down, and I know this is coming...

    I’m sorry for you loss partner. It’s amazing how much 4 paws, drool, and a wet nose can change our life

    I'm so sorry. I hurt every time some one losses a family member. There's been an increase in sad stories on this forum, something terrible, lately.

    I've been through three, myself. Dreading the next one even more.
