    My Lena Girl (named after Lena Horne and Keith's Bentley) died today after being diagnosed with lymphoma about six weeks ago. The vet was to come this afternoon, but she passed on her own. She was a lovely dog about 8 or 9 years old, not without issues, much like her master. The beads were a gift from a friend's 11 year old daughter since she first got sick. I live alone and miss her dearly already.

    EDIT: Many thanks to all for the kind wishes. They all help.

    I'm so sorry to hear this, and I can sympathize with how painful this can be. While there's nothing I can say to make you feel any better right now, know that in time, the sadness and pain you're feeling right now will start to give way to happy memories and smiles at the though of your furry friend.

    My thoughts and sympathies are sent your way.

    Man, that truly sucks!

    Hang in there buddy. Keep her memory alive by never forgetting her and make her proud by giving a great life to another dog (when you're ready) who needs a loving master.

    She looks like she was loved by many people. It's not the years but the quality of life she had while in your care. You did good, dude.

    RIP Lena.

    Sorry for your loss...I feel your pain..looks like she was full of personality.

    I lost my best buddy, my Golden Retreiver Myles, on 3/5..
    15 years old...Congestive Heart failure...

    Vet gave him six months tops after diagnosing him...but with meds he lasted 9 months...
    Died at home at 5am with me lying next to him..

    It's going to be hard for you,

    You are going to hear her, and feel her every so often, because she really will be there, she will feel how sad you are and will know you need her and miss her.

    Again, so sorry...I sorely miss my boy every single day.

    Sorry for your loss. I have two dogs that I dread that day. After the pain subsides all you will be left with are the great moments you shared together. We are the fortunate ones that get to share our lives with such wonderful companions. Peace
