    I'm sorry to hear that Josh. Labs are awesome dogs but that sometimes makes them harder to let go.

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    So sorry bro. Buried my fifteen year old two years ago, I cant remember the last time I cried that hard. I knew he was about to go, his last meal was a ribeye and he passed in front of the fireplace. Ever since I have gone out of my way to pet my ten year old good morning and good night. So hard bro but like someone else said, the positives outweigh the negatives. At least thats what I told myself when we inherited the next dog after my wifes uncle passed. Mortality sucks

    Sorry about that. Nothing beats a lab as far as I'm concerned. By the looks of it your treat your dog like we do ours...otherwise they have a really, really good life.

    Hurts like hell, sorry that it was time. I made the mistake of not getting another dog because I didn't want to feel that pain again. Big mistake, get another fairly soon. A dog is the only family member that you get to choose, besides wives, ex wives.. :)
