We had about 3 pretty good weeks with Kaiser after I posted that he was failing. Over the past few days he was acting not quite like himself, but nothing major. Yesterday he didn't eat his dinner and when our doorbell rang, he tried to jump up off his bed to go greet whoever it was, cried out in pain and laid back down. A few hours later I got him to go outside, but once outside, his back legs just collapsed and he was unable to get up. He tried and we tried to help him, but it wasn't meant to be. The look in his eye was telling us he had had enough and was unable to fight anymore. Our vet came to our house last night around 11:00 and Kaiser crossed peacefully over the bridge shortly after.

I can't believe he's gone. Those 11 1/2 years flew by. He was such a gentle giant and such a good boy. The house is so eerily quiet without him, but I know he is out of pain. My head knows we did the right thing, now I have to wait for my heart to catch up.

Run free my boy. We love you and we will see you again some day. frown

Pat I waited until I saw the look in cheyenne's eyes that she was tired of the struggle.

The head was way ahead of the heart that day, but I knew we were doing what was best for her.

Run Free Kaiser. We will all miss you Mr. Handsome.

I remember Kaiser from the other site when he was little. I remember because he was the same age as Larka. My heart dropped when I read the title of your thread. Where has the time gone?
Kaiser was such a handsome boy, his passing will hit hard with many on the board.
I'm so sorry for your loss, RIP sweet Kaiser, run free.

I am so very sorry.

It is so incredibly touching that Kaiser was speaking and Pat (and husband) understood. What is more precious than that bond?

I am deeply sorry for your loss.

God speed Kaiser,

There are no right words for this. No matter how correct the decision is, it is a painful one to make. What an honor that you shared his life, what an honor for him, too.

Deepest sympathy for you - take solace in that you did the right thing for your boy to release him from his never ending pain. He is waiting for you at The Bridge!

As Bonnie said, I feel like I've known Kaiser forever. He had such distinctive and rich markings, I always knew it was him before I saw that you posted the picture. I'm very sorry for your loss, Pat...

I am brokenhearted for you. It is never easy to let go of our furbabies. I pray you can find peace in knowing you gave him such a wonderful life filled with love.

My deepest sympathies teary I can't say I know the feeling yet, but knowing how just the thought of losing a dog affects me, I am sure the heartache cannot be easy. You were lucky to have each other. RIP Kaiser.
