KAS

This is my dog KAS (named after Kass Winthrop from Another World). He's a great dog. He's been ill off and on for the past year or so. I have been going broke trying to get him back to 100%. His doctor told me that it was inhumane to keep him alive. The selfish side of me that loved him too much wanted to hold on and have faith that he'd get better. The doctor said that I had a really sweet dog and that he was too sweet for me to allow him to suffer. I didn't want him to hurt. So I told the doctor to do what he felt had to be done. My dog died yesterday 12/20/04. I haven't cried so hard since losing my mom. It's funny how a stupid dog can have such an impact on your life and your family. They have personalities, they love hard, they protect you and make you laugh. If he were really just some stupid dog, I would just replace him and get another. He wasn't, he was like my child and the doctor advised me to pull the plug. Some people say, "you can't compare a pet to a person!" That's Bullshit! If you ever had a pet, I guess you know what I mean. In the meantime,.....I mourn.

Sorry about your loss. I know how easy it is to get attached to pets and dogs are so freakin loyal. I have lost two dogs myself. I am sure that comfort will be coming your way in mnay interesting packages.

I completely understand. I had to put my beloved cat to sleep after he was hit by a car. I cried and cried and cried. Sigh! What a sweet looking dog. Take care.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Dogs are a breed that really love unconditionally and I know it was a hard decision to make. That was very selfless of you because at the end of the day, you don't him to keep suffering like he was. I wish there could have been another solution for little Kas. You're in my prayers. *big hug*

Jazz big hugs coming your way. The worst is when you have to put a family friend to sleep. You know that Kas is in a better place.

Hi Jazz

sorry to hear that sad news about Kas. Pets are like Family members sometimes better actually. I've become attached to alot of my pets over the years and I can relate to the feeling of loss. Hang in there girl.

Aww I'm sorry to hear about your dog. The holidays are stressful enough to have that happen. Keep your head up and have a Merry Christmas. Take care ...

Jazz... I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Although I do not have a pet, I can clearly understand how one could become so attached to them. They are extensions of our families no doubt. I pray that your heartache is comforted with a new bundle of joy soon.

I am sorry to hear about your dog. Pets are family, and you lost a member of yours to illness. There's no reason to feel bad about that. I hope you feel better soon!

Dayum, I'm so sorry 2 hear about KAS. I know how much he meant 2 U and yes, he was YOUR child. There was not one time I went upstairs and didn't hear him bark @ my footsteps. I know I used 2 joke on his eye & everything, but I got mad respect 4 KAS and my heart goes out 2 U.

I'm sure KAS and my cat are in pet-heaven listening to Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "Reminisce" and looking down on us.

I know this may make for a rough holiday, but be encouraged, Jazz. I wish I had a way 2 reach out 2 you other than this, but I hope U feel the sentiment thru my comment.

RIP KAS...
