Sorry to hear that buddy!
I know the pain, right now I am dealing with having to put my dog down after she bit a guy. Long Story.
I just got done signing her over to the shelter via the police dept....
Thanks again guys for the thoughts. I guess we make a deal when we take them into our home that the better they are, and the stronger the bond is, the harder it will be to let go. We all know it's worth it.
I am so sorry brother and know exactly how you feel. I also have a basset (Spartacus) which will be 13 yrs old in March and he is nearing his end and its killing me and the family! My wife and I got him back in 1998 while we were living in Leavenworth, KS and he has been a member of the family ever since. People cant believe he is still alive considering bassets avg life span is roughly 9yrs if youre lucky. He too is a lemon/white basset, well used to be that is since now he is totally white. I know the day is coming when I get that terrible call that our buddy has left us and have tried to prepare myself for it but theres no way to prepare for the death of someone that has been with you for 13yrs!
Again, I am so so so sorry for your lose and hope that you and your family are doing ok! Peace.
