The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.

Yesterday we made the decision to ease Sym over the bridge.

He had begun to experience severe breathing difficulties and was only 
able to sleep for short periods.

Julie and I held him as he fell asleep.

He is with his sister, Sox, now and is free from pain and discomfort.


  1. You know, that I know, how sad you are. My heart goes out to you both. Sym was a good boy. lots of love, C

  2. My heart breaks for you. I know how important Sym was to you and what a hole he leaves in your life. I realize there isn't anything I could say in the way of comfort, but Sym was blessed to have you as a life partner. Rest in peace, noble Sym.

  3. Poor old Sym - R.I.P. - you gave him every chance and the best life possible!

  4. Very sad for you and yours....

  5. I am so very sorry. ((HUGS)) rest in peace Sym.

  6. Oh, How sad. You too.
    It's just not fair. I'm so sorry.

    I am glad we can do that, ease them out of pain and the struggle for breath. I held Benno until he was gone. Two weeks later and we talk about him all the time. I stopped crying but miss him dreadfully.

    I know exactly how you feel as, I am sure, you know how I feel.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs from Alabama...

  8. I lost my Irish Wolfhound, Lucy, to the same terrible cancer several years ago and it still hurts. We love them so much and get so much love back. I'm so sorry.

    1. It is never easy to let go, even when you KNOW it is to prevent them suffering. Sym was, is and always will be ... My handsome pup!

  9. Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts.
