I'm so sorry. Our beagle died when he was 9 also. It's been 7 years and I'm just starting to think now about getting another dog only because my young kids have been asking.

Chuck, I'm so sorry to hear about Mandy. Since we have a legal beagle of our own (Louie), I always loved it when you mentioned her.

Susan Cartier Liebel, Esq.

Chuck, Unless you are a pet owner you can't appreciate how deeply we feel for our animals. I've been there too many times. But you never could imagine your life without them, either.

I'm so sorry.


I'm really sorry to hear about your dog, Chuck.

Words are little comfort, but being a lover of dogs, I do understand. I, too, enjoyed reading about Mandy. Giving love and accepting the joy of another species is what makes us "human" whether we are actually human or canine.

A little more than two years ago my youngest dog died from an autoimmune disease which was probably caused by an over zealous vaccination protocol. Even though I knew it wasn't true, I felt responsible. After all, I was the one who took her to the vet.

My family, including two older dogs, were grieving so that we got a puppy. I kept thinking that the puppy could never replace our other dog and I was right. The puppy thought up her own mischief. She is unique!

So, give yourself (and the other members of your family) time.

Sorry about the dog Chuck. Having 2 of my own and having had dogs most of my life, I know how important and significant they are to our lives. Thoughts are with you.

I am so sorry to hear about Mandy. My condolences. They truly become part of the family and when they pass they leave an empty spot. I lost my own 10 year old pound puppy last year. She is missed.

Jan M. McCray Flemmons, Esq.

I am so sorry to hear of Mandy's passing. I, too, am a solo who runs my practice out of my home. I often refer to my "partner." She is a 12+ year old cocker spaniel, named Belle, that has been with me through marriage, college, law school, and starting my firm. This place is hers just as much as mine. There isn't an appointment, phone call, or pleading that doesn't get done without her help! A big part of me will die when she passes and I can't stand the thought.


I have a Mandy beagle. I am losing her to heart failure. She is 12, but I have only been in her life for 4 years. :( It's a sad day for us. She is my partner, my friend, and a doggie soulmate. She was my first dog and the dog who changed it all. I am going to vet school because of her.
Dogs are amazing and the ones that we bond with are forever in our Hearts.
I am very sorry for your loss.
