Had to put the old boy down last week, he was my daughters birthday present in 1994, the last one her mum bought her. Her mum died later that in June so he was as much a link to her as a well loved companion. He's put up with six kids growing up around him and has been patient and kind to them all.
He spent the last few months mostly asleep under the kitchen radiator and was 19 this February.
He's let a big gap in that kitchen.

In the end he was virtually blind and stone deaf but if you dropped a piece of food he somehow knew and it would be gone in seconds.

19 !!! - Wow that's fantastic!!!  It's a long time to know a dog, he will leave a big hole in your lives, but lots of wonderful memories I am sure.

So sorry to hear about your loss.  Our furry friends fill such a great space in our lives.  He's now pain free and running over Rainbow Bridge.  Your grief will get easier in time.
