Sorry to hear that Mr King. I took mine up to our family cabin last weekend. Sometime sunday evening between 8 pm or so when I gave him some food and 10 pm when I went to bring him inside, he wandered off into the woods and disappeared. Responded once to my calls, but not again. Even with a full moon it was too dark to find a black dog in the undergrowth. Looked for him monday morning with no luck and no responses again. My sister, brother in law and niece went up monday afternoon and looked for him with niece's dog but no sign of him either. I left out some food and water and will go back this weekend again, but I think he went off to die somewhere he was comfortable, he's always enjoyed it up there.

 

That is very sad.  Sorry you lost your pup like that.

I had to put my dog down last week. He developed signs of being ill last Monday, and continued to get worse as the week went by. I got him into the vet, and the vet started out by performing a routine checkup on him, and discovered one of his anal glands had grown into a very large mass. She biopsied it, and took a look a look at the biopsy under the microscope. She saw cancer cells. She said anal gland cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers in dogs. I was not even aware that was a thing until then. He had just had a checkup around October - November and they did not detect the mass then, so either they missed it, or it grew between then and last week. We discussed options and I decided that putting him down was the most humane thing to do with how sick he was. I could not afford chemo and surgery for him, and if we treated the symptoms she estimated he might have a month at best. Hard call to make. I miss him quite a bit, as he was my buddy and often went out with me while I ran errands and such. 

 

It's a horrible decision to make but the right call. It really tears you up to have to let them go. BTDT and will be there again. My wife asked why they only live so long and my answer was so you love them so much. Very sorry to both of you. Now I have to go get this piece of dust out of my eye.

Me too. It hurts too much to lose them. I so hope there really is a rainbow bridge.

Guys who kill animals for kicks are usually just working up their courage to move up to humans.

He almost did, and I suspect it would have been bad, real bad for the scumbags who killed his dog.  John Wick bad.

They will eventually answer to God for what they did, and the dog will be there as a witness.  I cannot imagine them seeking salvation in the meantime so they can face their eternal fate.

God 'So Dasy, what should their fate be?'

Dasy 'Ruff!'

God 'Sounds good to me!'

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A Missouri animal rescue is seeking a loving home for a very special puppy, with a very unique tale.

"Narwhal the Unicorn Puppy" is capturing hearts across the internet for what looks like a small tail between his eyes. The pup was discovered Saturday in rural Kansas City, said Rochelle Steffen, founder of Mac's Mission, a donation-based rescue that specializes in caring and finding homes for special needs dogs.

Narwhal was brought to Steffen over the weekend along with another stray puppy. She brought the Dachshund and Beagle mix to a veterinarian in Cape Girardeau, a couple of hours from where he was found.

The 4.4-pound puppy, whom she named Narwhal after the artic narwhale known for its protruding tusk, got a clean bill of health, Steffen said. There are no plans at this time to remove the tail from his head, according to Steffen.

"I was going to name him wipers if the tail wagged," Steffen joked.
