That's rough, CR. No question that's one pup who will get all the love, care, attention he needs.
Hope you don't mind if I post this "On Your Journey":

CRGuy:
My heart aches for the loss of your GrandPup.

Your GrandPup could not have had a more caring and responsible grandfather and veterinarian than you to walk with through life.

Your posts spoke eloquently of your GrandPup. You wrote: “He is absolutely the best dog, ever. Word ! ”

I know your heart is hurting, right now. You did all that you could for your GrandPup and made the right decision to spare him from pain.

I think people who do not believe in soulmates just haven’t met the right animal yet.

While I will never have the right words to help heal your heart, please know know that my heart is sad for you.

Thinking of you,
Karen

Thank you Karen, for your kind words.

It IS so very difficult to know what lies ahead, and that last step over the Rainbow Bridge is still to be taken.
We are keeping him at a great level of comfort and other than a mild limp you would not know he is ill.

CRguy, I hope you have lots more time with your big, beautiful, headstrong grandpuppy.

You are right. Your spirit and his are connected at a very deep level. I firmly believe that what we generate multiplies. You both generate wisdom and strength, and you are both anchored together on this plane of existence. Let that connection, that strength, nurture you both right now.

xo,
JJ

So sorry for what you are going through, I feel your pain. We lost 2 pets last yrs. My dog, my son's cat. I suspect we will lose our other cat this year. It's hard when they get old. They are family.

Gentle hugs to you and your dog!

CR.....I hope that this year finds gentleness for your furgrandbaby and your family. Like Lee, I suspect that we, too, will lose a family furbaby.....our last pooch....beagle Roxy. It is SO difficult to watch our furbabies to pass on. We don't want them to suffer yet we don't want them to leave us. Hugs to you and your family.....especially any grandchildren who have this pup as their family furbaby.
