re: The Puppy Dog Thread.

You aren't daft, when I had my Bernese Mountain dogs put down they were my first dogs and for months and months I couldn't talk about it at all. Having them both go in 24 hours was hard, especially...

re: The Puppy Dog Thread.

I am so sorry Murphy is no longer with you, he looked lovely in that photo. It doesn't matter how old or young they are, it's still heart breaking when it happens. Even getting another dog doesn't...

re: The Puppy Dog Thread.
