You could always do a light skim coat of concrete and then sand and blend to match the surrounding area.

Adam,

Just saw this... I'm so sorry for you bother.

I understand how pet loss can effect you. Much love.
Thanks Tu,

I feel absolutely horrible and could not even eat my ice cream, but you guys do help me feel better.  Thanks for that, it means a lot to me right now.

Sorry to hear it... My Dogs now 11, so he's on the back 9 for sure, and it bums me out...



Beautiful dog, awesome home gym.

I also train at home and when I would go down into the weight room, I could always hear Tesla tapping around, wondering when I will come back up, wanting to go down there too.  She always had to know where I was at all times.  She was a very needy and emotional dog at times.  I am really going to miss her.

Really sorry for your loss, man. Hang in there. My sweet boxer has been gone for over 6 years, she got cancer at age 11. Takes a long time to feel better, & whenever someone goes through it like you are now, it brings all the memories of that time right back. The years I got to spend with her were totally worth having to go through that, but no more dogs for me...

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

Thanks for this.  All the time we spend with them is worth it.  In fact, if ever asked what makes me happiest, I always say being with my dogs.  Its so difficult to think of what it is like without them, but its also equally difficult thinking about going through it all again.  

Do you think you will ever have another dog and have you come close to getting another?

On Dec. 9, 1945, Patton was on his way to hunt pheasant near Mannheim with Gen. Hobart R. Gay. At a checkpoint a few miles from their destination, Patton looked back and saw a dog belonging to their hunting adviser in the trailing jeep.

''Woody, go and bring that dog inside the car,'' Patton said. ''He looks cold.''

Private Woodring fetched the dog. Patton got out of his seat and climbed into the rear with General Gay. The dog sat up front.

''That simple act of kindness toward an animal ended the life of a national hero,'' Mr. Woodring wrote. Moments later Patton slammed against the partition separating the front and back seats and became the only passenger injured. The impact broke the general's neck.

Are you a man?
General Patton apparently loved his dog more than the entire United States Army and only shed tears for it.

Man up. The dog was a food relationship. You fed it, it feigned affection. If your ugly ass was the one to have died that dog would have stepped over your awkward looking carcass and moved on to the next food relationship. Man up.
One day you will love something or someone more than you love yourself and you will realize that person or animal loves you in the same manner.  Its probably already happened to you at least once (lets hope so anyway) , but I get that this is Getbig and that you are "Primary Captain" and understand your false bravado very well.

Sorry for your loss.  It's the hardest part of including a pet in your life.  Don't let it discourage you from giving another deserving fur baby a good life even though it's hard to think about that right now.  Also, don't second guess yourself on any part of this last year.  It will drive you insane.  Just know, you & Jez gave her the best life she could possibly have.
I can`t stop with it.  I know its normal and there will be guilt, rational and completely irrational.  I have to find a way to keep it at bay.  Thanks for the support from a few days ago as well Princess L, I have been meaning to tell you that.

I lost the French mastiff I rescued last summer to a massive seizure. the vet called to say Hugo had passed and when I hung up the phone I cried like a baby bro.

it's a tough thing losing such a great a companion and friend. I know there is a place out dogs are playing together in the sun where there's cool streams and butterfiles to chase. and one day we'll join them.

but what we have to do now is what we are meant to do- rescue and rehome another.

sorry for your loss my brother. fuck I hate that you have to deal w this pain.
Thanks No One.  I am thinking of maybe using your workouts to get my mind going again.  I haven`t really felt this bad in a long time and something intensive like that could probably be pretty good therapy.

I feel for you and the Bigger dogs.  Its not fair that they have a shorter lifespan than most.  It sucks how much things with a bigger dog can change in just a year or two.  Here today, gone the next.

Serious note, I hate losing pets. Ive lost 2 parrots that I had for 5-10 years each and it was a horrible traumatic experience. Especially since I wound up holding them both while they died.

Losing animals is tougher than losing most people (except direct family/loved ones)
Parrots would be really hard for me as wells as I know how intelligent they are and how bonded they can get.  

We both were right beside our Tesla last night and were holding and petting her when she died.  Its something that I will never be able to get out of my mind and its tough to think about.  My wife was unable to sleep last night and did not go to bed until 10 am this morning because she keeps replaying it all back in her head.  I try to tell her not to do it, but I feel awful because I am doing it too.

My old GF's cat Stan was a stray that had epilepsy and FIV. My GF had him put down when I was in basic training, I was absolutely gutted.


I had a dog before my Greyhounds who had epilepsy his whole life and he was on Phenobarbitol to control his seizures.  It worked only some of the time and he would still have them.  Very scary thing as you have to make sure they don`t bite their tongue or fall off the bed or hurt themselves.  I do see some put their dogs down from that, but we were able to manage it and he lived a long life.

Feel for you mate, had to have mine put to sleep in 2009, he started being aggressive and almost killed our cat. (he had several instances or aggression, it wasn't an isolated incident)
He was never a social dog but we had a connection I have never had with any other dog.
I think about him every day.

Thats a hard thing to do.  Some people handle all of it easy, at least they pretend to do so on message boards and sometimes in person etc...

But to me at least, these losses are harder than for people. 
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I am Heartbroken. on: July 02, 2014, 01:32:16 PM
Yeah.. I have 1. First dog I've ever had. It's funny how soon after getting her I realised I'd have to say goodbye to her at some point and fear that day. I honestly have no idea if I'd ever get another.

I friend of mine lost his last year, swore blind he was done. A month later he had to go get a new dog. I don't think he could handle the absence
Love him or her as much as you can.  Go spend some time with him or her today.

It sounds like it may have manifest like an auto-immune disorder. Did she have any vaccinations just prior to the symptom outbreak?
No vaccinations.  Last year at this time, she developed an intense thirst for water and would drink bowls full.  I was taking her outside every 2-3 hours.  She acted normal though despite the water drinking.  Then, she began to lose a bit of fur on her shoulders and she had some sort of skin infection/flaking.   We took her in and they couldn`t really find anything, but decided that a Tick-Borne disease may be the culprit as it is common in Greyhounds.  They can get bit at a young age and carry the disease for years before it manifests.  She then started developing a sort of dementia, but it would clear every now and then.  Then it just got worse and worse.  She would pace uncontrollably and I would sit with her for hours trying to calm her and it would work.   The last few weeks were the worst.  She never cried out in pain or anything though.  We started the Doxycycline again a few days ago thinking maybe it was a flare up of the Tick-Borne Disease.

I am not quite sure she ever even had one though.  Undecided

She would have known you loved her. Beyond that and taking care of a dog there's not much more you can give them in life. Stay strong
I still have one left.  I don`t think I can ever get any more dogs or any pets because its just too hard and their lifespans too short.  The thought of them dying is always there from day one, at least for me anyways and it really is upsetting to think about.  
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I am Heartbroken. on: July 02, 2014, 01:21:12 PM
The vet had no idea?
They thought Ehrlichiosis, a Tick-Borne disease of some sort.  I am leaning more towards some type of Kidney disease.  The vet nearly wrongly diagnosed her with cancer initially, reading the scans and misinterpreting chicken in her stomach for cancers, so there is that.

Most dogs and people for that matter, are wrongly diagnosed or misdiagnosed, but I do not blame anyone.

No HOMO,

My cat is a stray I found, turns out it's a turkisn angora

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Angora

This cat is smart and acts like a dog, fetchs etc. He literally doesn't leave my side as I am his constant human. He looks exactly like the second pic, the rusty colored cat with white, identical almost. I never did like cats but his dog like behavior is gonna make it hard when he dies. He is sick, epilepsy, FIV, fucker has cost me like 10g's for dental etc.
Hug your cat for me.  Its hard.  Tesla, (we called her Hooter and a bunch of other names) never left our side.  I was never away from her for more than a few hours and she came with us every where we went.  
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I am Heartbroken. on: July 02, 2014, 01:16:21 PM
Damn man, I am sorry. Was she sick? I lost Lindsey over a year ago and I still miss her.
Yes she was very sick and nobody really knew why.  The last few weeks I was taking care of her every need.  Helping her go to the bathroom every time, feeding her with a turkey baster because she could no longer drink water herself or eat.  Every now and then she would rally and give me those strong eyes.  Some days the eyes were pleading, some were content. 

We buried her last night in an Iris garden.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I am Heartbroken. on: July 02, 2014, 01:14:01 PM
trying, but cannot feel sorry for you...  Grin
Thats okay and I understand.  Just feel sorry for my dog and all the other dogs out there who need one last pet or meal or just some loving words.

Sorry for your loss mate. losing his dog is one of the worst losses a man experience.

I have lost a lot of people in life, even early on, but this is really tough.  Undecided
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / I am Heartbroken. on: July 02, 2014, 01:02:19 PM
One of my beloved Greyhounds passed away last night.  Its not easy at all as she was by my side always and I never left her.
