    Owning a dog sure prolongs your life but what nobody mentions is THE DEATH of your friend - it surely shortens it..Ideal situation would be to die with your dog - as in trading, timing is everything:)

    and by the way, from this place I'd like to thank atticus once more for his idea with coenzyme q10 which I fed to my dog..incredible..my vet gave her two more months and with this stuff I took her through 2 more years:)

    I find that the best way to deal with the death of a dog is to buy a puppy.

  4. I've been told that before, but I don't know how I'd deal with it. We had to put one of our cats to sleep some time ago - he was 19 and very sick - and that was hard enough, I couldn't imagine taking another cat in his place. I don't know how I'd deal with the loss of my dog.

  6. What a magnificent animal. I am not one for dog shows much, but I can appreciate such a pure-blooded animal.

    There are studies on pets for people with PTSD. Pets are great--cats, too. Yes, it's painful when they go but the benefits outweigh that.

    Not unless you're one of the rare unfortunate people who own a pitbull or pitbulls...that one random day...decides it wants to maul its owner to death :vomit::confused:

    The article say the dog is not puppy. The dog is mastiff great dane mix and is adult grown. So is very big. Why is that dog in the basement, in the cage? I adopt bull mastiff mix. He is never in cage in basement. My dog is have freedom to walk in my house. I take him to walk every day outside to see people and dogs. My dog greet people in my house all the time to socialize. He is beautiful, friendly, but he can bark if someone is stranger like the UPS or the FED ex coming to the door. Never he try to bite, but always bark if is stranger. To put the dog that big in the cage in the basement is sad. Maybe that dog is angry to be in the cage in the basement?
