Such a heavy heart....tomorrow we will have to say good-bye to our faithful and loyal friend ~ Tuff Storm "Rider".

He has been all over with us, Carolinas, Virginia, Mississippi, Tennessee and of course Florida.

He has camped, hiked, swam, rode in canoes, posed for pictures and loved our family unconditionally.

He can no longer walk (more like stagger) or move about. All muscle control is gone in his lower body. This has come on swiftly. He has a disease that attacks his connective tissue. I'm just glad he's not in pain.

Goodbye Rider...you will be missed.

I'm sorry to hear this, Janine. We just sent Karma on to her final; rest a month ago, so I know what you're feeling :-) Bear Hug for y'all...

So sorry Janine; this breaks my heart too as it is so close to home for us with our dear Lucy. We have had several labs over the years and, like everyone's pet, they become a part of your family and you love them just as much. Big hugs to you and your family from ours.

So sorry to hear this sad news. Rider will be missed, I know. My heart goes out to you.

Ja-9, my thoughts are with you tonight and tomorrow and onward.
Dang, it's difficult. You made a life for your lovely dog,
as your dog helped you make your own life more fulfilled.

Bear, I was also sad to hear of Karma's demise. Now that was a
dog with a checkered career. One we all appreciated over the years.

Our companions do have shorter life-spans and this is a moment
we come to, eventually.
Never easy. I know you will remember the joy. It may ease the pain.

Such a handsome dog. Farewell, Rider. Sorry to hear the news.

So sorry that you are having to lose your old friend. Memories and photos will keep him in your hearts forever. Only time will ease the pain.

It always breaks my heart to read these threads. If it makes you feel any better, he'll be partying it up with David Bowie and Garry Frey.

O Janine! I am so sorry and I know how painful this is for you and your family,
I am thinking of you,
01/19/2016 08:26:42 AM · #16
Well, that just sucks. So sorry.
01/19/2016 08:39:05 AM · #17
So sorry to hear this Janine. That complete and unconditional love they have for us is, I think, why it's so incredibly hard to see them go.
01/19/2016 09:10:28 AM · #18
Rider begins the big adventure, wish him well.
01/19/2016 10:13:47 AM · #19
Sorry to hear it Janine!

My yellow lab Meadow sends her best wishes for Rider--she'll see him on the other side. She has trouble with her legs...she's almost 15 and she doesn't have long. A time I don't look forward to, so I can really feel your pain.
01/19/2016 11:28:53 AM · #20
oh, Janine! I'm so sorry for your pain. What a fun, loving life Rider has had with you... and you with him.

You're kind not to let him suffer.
01/19/2016 12:00:13 PM · #21
Sending love at a tough time.
My thoughts when I met Rider were that he was such a sweet big ol' dog, and such an important member of your family.
01/19/2016 01:28:50 PM · #22
I´m so sorry, Janine. Good bye, Rider
01/19/2016 06:00:04 PM · #23
Hey Janine, my thoughts are with you.
01/19/2016 07:33:47 PM · #24
Thank you for all your kind words and support. I really do appreciate it.
