Thank you EVERYONE for all the kind wishes and support of my posts when José was sick. He passed away very peacefully on Saturday. Please hug your hounds today for José.



José was a happy dog and had such a great life. He just was such a good natured loveable dog. Six days after we took him to the vet, we found out about his cancer. 24 hours later we had to say goodbye. There is a Sarah McClaughlin song about dying (Hold On) that says "what is this in me that refuses to believe this isn't easier than the real thing...." and that last afternoon with him was so hard. We just layed down by him and tried to comfort and talk to him.

The vet gave the shot and my husband and I and my parents were there with him as he just peacefully fell asleep. So hard to do, I know many on this board have gone through this and I have in the past.

Every St. Patricks day we will have a toast for our José . He was a sweet gentle soul.

I am crying as I write this. Whenever something happens to one of the hounds on here I feel it like it were one of my own. I am deeply sorry for your loss. Remember every precious moment that you shared with Jose'. My thoughts and tears are with you.

Although his time with you was far too brief, few dogs are as much beloved as he was. I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

So sorry for your loss of Jose. He is happy and runnin around looking down on your now though. It is the hardest thing we as pet owners have to do. But is is our duty, and you did the most humane thing for Jose.........As he couldn't do it for himself.

Please find comfort in the memories and knowing that he is well and happy again.

After we put our St Bernard down(we had him for 11 years....old boy) (1.5 years ago)we thought heard him for quite sometime afterwards doing his daily rituals. It may have been our minds so used to him around, but a part of me believes he was/is just making sure everyone is still safe and sound. Feel comfort is this happens to you. We still miss him dearly with all our hearts, but know he is happy now. Im very sure he has welcomed your Jose along with all the other canine companions.
take care.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is so obvious that Jose was loved deeply by your entire family. He is at peace and no longer in pain. I will say a prayer for him tonight.

So sorry to hear about Jose. Reading about Jose really makes us appreciate every day we have our wonderful hounds. We never know what’s going to happen, we need to enjoy every moment with them. We will be thinking of you and your family.

Having just gone through this a couple of weeks ago, I know how you are feeling. I'm so sorry - I'm sure he knew how much he was loved. :(
