Had to put down our almost 14 year old Daschie last week. Great personality. His name was Cody but we called him Prancing pony as he would jump up and down on his hind legs. He was active until his last day which is a great way to go. If I had untold riches, he may have survived the heart surgery, but funds didn't permit an attempt. He is and will be missed.



and one in full prance mode with a squirrel in the tree.

    I remember those dogs, one of them hated me for some reason.

    Always a sad thing.

    Those dogs do make great squirrel dogs.

    Trust me, it's not you. That was Muttley the larger one on the right in the squirrel picture. He growled at me for nearly six months and I LIVED THERE! :tooth:

    My condolences, amigo. They really are children in little fur coats.

    You may not believe this but the best pheasant dog I ever hunted over was a dachshund. He would get in the heavy cover where pointers couldn't go. The pheasants would come crashing out of that cover in abject terror! He hunted until he couldn't hardly walk anymore. We'd give him an aspirin and put him to bed and in the morning he was ready to hunt again! Gone but not forgotten. Dachsies have heart!

    My sympathies.

    My condolences brother. I've been through that pain a few times and almost every time I say that's it, I can't do this again... And then a new wet nose and puppy eyes convince me it is all worth it again...

    What he said. Indeed, what everyone here has said. In the last 30 years, we've had a Lab, a Brittany Spaniel, a German Wirehaired Pointer and a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, plus my wife had a scruffy little Min Pinscher, and after every loss we swore we wouldn't put ourselves through that again. Now, a combination of circumstances dictate that we adhere to that vow, even though we hate doing so, but not a day goes by that I/we don't think about them and miss them.

    Sorry to hear it, man. They love us so completely that it's just tragic when they move on. Been there.
  • horselipshorselips Senior Member Posts: 3,628 Senior Member
    I am so sorry for your loss. God bless you.

    My lemon-beagle Lucky passed away last January, 2 months shy of his 15th birthday. I never cried so hard and so long - even for my beloved parents. I still cannot think of him, or look at his picture without choking up. It took until July before I was able to look for another dog to adopt me. My new best friend is Juliet, half Dachsund-half Goddess, Queen of Dogs & She Who Must Be Obeyed.
