I would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt messages . I will be lost without my buddy he was our true companion and friend . He passed away in my arms I didn't not have to have him put down he looked at me and I told him it was okay and he went to sleep it was so very quick I haven't stopped crying yet . The house seems so quiet but I take great comfort in knowing he was a happy doggie that never caused an ounce of trouble my fondest memory is of his ability to make snow angels :) I will never forget the first time he saw snow he was like a little kid so funny from that point on I knew he was a real gem . I really appreciate that others share my pain hugs to everyone

I am so sorry again for your loss. Chance is now free from his pain running and playing with my Beau until you can be together again.

I know it's tough. I'm not sure which is tougher, having your buddy die in your arms as yours did or having to put one down like I did. Either way they are gone. But time does heal and I'm still in that process. Best of luck.

Of course you miss him. I'm so sorry that your heart is broken, but to save your heart you would not have been able to have known your Chance. It's the "Fragile Circle." We'd have it no other way...

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan."

Chance sounds like such a great dog & friend. I'd love to see him make a snow angel. I still miss my Raleigh horribly, but as time passed and passed, the good memories came back and with them smiles instead of tears.

I know, it is so hard.
I take comfort in knowing that they are playing at the bridge and one day we will be with them again.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry about Chance. The last thing he felt here on earth was you holding him, how comforting for him. Rest in Peace Chance.

I am so sorry. only real dog lovers know the pain we suffer when we lose one of our much loved dogs. each time i have lost one i have wondered why i had to love him/ her so much that my heat was torn in pieces. yet I always had to get another, to feel the love they give.

In time you will remember Chance with a smile, and yes sometimes tears - I'm not sure that the pain of losing them ever goes away, we just get a little bit better at coping with it.

I'm sure that Chance will be showing his new friends how to make their own snow angels

Chance

I'm sure you are very comforted that you were holding Chance in your arms when he crossed to the Rainbow Bridge.

Though it is a hard decision to make, Ken and I have always felt that because we loved our dogs so much, it was our responsibility and promise to them.

So sorry to hear of Chance's passing...

It'll hurt like h*ll for a long time--but you will heal. Chance was very lucky to have you holding him safely--when he passed.

Our condolences.....

Hugs to you as you go through this tough time. It helped me to immerse myself in all things Sam. I watched our home movies, collected his pictures into a collage, wrote down my memories, and shared Sam stories with family members.

It takes time but there will come a day when you don't cry at the thought of Chance, but Smile at the thought of Chance....
