Halloween was a horrible day for my husband and I. We had decided to put down our 15 year old Golden Retriever "Rusty". He was not feeling well at all on friday he couldnt eat and laid around all day( very weak). When we tried to get him up he would fall down. He has been going down hill for awhile. His legs were not working very well and he was going to the bathroom in the house. I am so happy that I had 9 years with Rusty, he was my husbands dog and he had him since rusty was 8 weeks old. Our other dog Tabitha, a hound mix, knows he is not around anymore. She seemed very down on saturday, sleeping all day. At night she would sniff around. She misses her big brother so much. I cant go a day without crying. We loved him so much but we understand. He lived to be 15, that is amazing for any dog. We are going to keep his cremations in a cedar box. Are there alot of people out there that do that? We have never done that before. He was very important to us. I love you Rusty and I hope you made it the RAINBOW BRIDGE my little man ( i always called him that) .
