“Someone want to explain these posts...did the search, no news I can find...what happened?”
“Sarabelle passed yesterday.”
“ST - this thread is for furry friend passings.”
“2-hiking pole salute to Sarabelle.”
“What stratDood said.”
“This passing effects me far more than some pop singer. :-(”
“that's awful to hear - you have my well wishes :-(”
“A TT pal just texted me to let me know of the sad news. Sarabelle was a great doggie, an excellent house guest and a wonderful pakpak companion. I miss you already, Sarabelle. I'm so sorry Gojo!”
“:( sorry for your loss. My dog is 12 and just went totally blind last week, just a matter of time. I stooped giving him dog food in favor of his preferred table scraps. I figure it'll add some pleasure to the time he has left.”
“Sorry to hear that.”
“So sorry to hear about your loss of Sarabelle. Our 16-year-old 'goggie', Jason, passed away just before Christmas, and sometimes I still forget and start to look for him when I head out for the lake to hike. 1camper, I'm sure your dog appreciates your efforts to make his remaining time more pleasurable.”
“Sarabelle was the first TT'er I ever met. I was hiking Blood Mtn and knew that gojo, om, and Radagast were going to be going the opposite direction. Rad knew I was up there, the others didn't. Sarabelle came running up, then gojo, and I petted her and said, "I know who this girl is." Joe had this, WTF??? look until I explained.
Joe, I am sorry for your loss.”
“Sorry Gojo. RIP Sarabelle.”
“Very sorry to hear that, Gojo.”
“I am truly happy to have shared the trail with Sarabelle and her companions. She saw something special in those two raggamuffins she hung out with, what I'll never know.
Joe, when your ready, we'll head out and howl at the moon together.”
“I never got to meet Sarabelle, but have heard many stories. Very sorry for your loss, Gojo!”
“Sorry to read about Sarabelle's passing. She was a good hiking doggie.”
“So sorry for your loss Gojo....
Sara Belle will be missed by all .....
She was quite the lady....”
“This really sucks.
I met 'belle only once but the whole context is something that I will never forget.
What an outstanding pooch!
'belle meant a lot to many folks. Ever since I met her I've been searching for our own "'belle" for a while, and got lucky about a year ago.
TT doggies rule!
rest in peace, our canine friends.”
“I had to put my hound Elvis down today. My son and I built a casket and dug a grave for him in the yard. We had an appointment this afternoon, here is how it went..(the review I left for the vet.)
" One star only because there is no zero star option. I brought my 12 yo dog in to be euthanized with my 11 year old son. We had an appointment at 3:40. They finally installed a catheter at 4:45. The first time I see the Dr. is 5 min to 5. The whole time my son is agonizing over the biggest decision he has ever had to make, whether to stay in the room. I mentioned to the Dr. that we had an appointment at 3:40...he says I have "attitude" and complains about my method of payment. (Which was a credit card the minute I walked in the door.)
He then proceeds to tell me how he is "doing me a favor" and tells me he will not perform the procedure. He sends me and my son and our dying dog (with the catheter still in his leg) out to "find another vet" at 5pm! This guy is totally consumed by money and has the compassion of a small stone. Do yourself, your animals, and your kids a favor and stay away from this vet."
Abbey animal hospital in Virginia beach. I didn't say it in the review but you would actually be better off taking your dog to Micheal Vick's house.
As it ended it was best. The vet we found was great and caring about my kid. He grew up a lot today.”
“That vet should be euthanized, what a d*ck!”
“I don't think I've ever been that angry at anyone before.”
“sorry that you lost your buddy. As for the first vet, nothing a brick through his window to help ease the pain he caused.”
“dude, i would so f that dudes car, house, and practice up. I would raise money for a billboard above his clinic.
sorry it was rough”
“I'm sorry for your loss. I know the feeling. It will take time. Hang in there.”
“Sorry to hear, One”
“Sorry for your loss, 1camper. Seems like there should be some organization you could report this guy to that might make his life difficult.”
“Better Business Bureau, or possibly the veterinarian equivalent of the AMA. Although "brick through the window" sounds pretty satisfying.”
“That "vet" has no business being a "vet."”
“that vet was a jerk. Was he your regular vet?”
“Yeah, he was..but my dog had only been there once. He was a pretty healthy dog. I'm happy we left, it turned out much better and my son stayed with his dog til the end.
Thanks for the condolences.”
“Sorry for your loss.
The vet was/is totally unprofessional.”
“I am sorry for your loss, and your son's loss. I guess he had never known life without Elvis. It's really good you did it right, with your son going with you (good on him for facing this). And then to have the Vet rub salt on the wounds like that. I hope there is a professional board you can complain to.”
“Put your review on yelp, too. (I had a good sardonic laugh over your Michael Vick comment - but you were probably right not to put in the review).

“I was attached to the dog, to my son he was like a brother. When he drew pictures of our family, he drew Elvis as a stick figure like the rest of us. Elvis thought they were brothers too. It's been real tough on him. I took the day off and let him stay home from school today. Thanks y'all, helps to vent.
Oh a pic of my boys:
“Damn man - I'm sorry.”
“I hate being here.
Mike and Laurel just took Pinky in for the last time. 15 years of being the best cat one could hope for, except for his penchant for peeing on any dirty laundry left on the floor. If you wanted to just hold and cuddle him he was fine with that. You could carry him around like a baby and he'd purr away, kneading his paws. He loved to play. When I first brought him home (he was born at a fiberglass plant. I've been with him since that very morning) he was sequestered in my room for a month, he'd play with us for hours on end. At night, he'd drop a toy in my hand and wait for me to throw it. Until the time he dropped a cockroach in my hand instead, that is. Still very much alive. I closed my hand over it, expecting a furry mouse, and it scuttled towards my wrist. Boy howdy I threw it, as I jumped and landed on the other side of the water bed. Mike never knew what hit him. He knocked over a bag of skittles once, and proceeded to push every single one out under the door. Same for a cupful of pens I had on my desk. He loved to play fetch, and if we weren't available, would knock his toys as noisily as he could down the staircase and chase after them. All night. When Laurel came along, he wasn't too happy, but Laurel has always loved him completely, and Pinky accepted her toy offering (stole a ball somebody gave her as a baby) gladly. It's a fabric ball, partly eviscerated at this point, with the rattle hanging on just by a thread. He never quite pulled it off completely. That ball will be buried with him a little later this morning.”
“I also hate seeing this thread pop up, but glad we have it.
I'm so sorry man. RIP Pinky.”
“Sorry to hear, 1-C and TB.
The time we get with them always flies by too fast.”
“So sorry for your loss...
Sorry to hear
“Those pets you have before the kids come along bring back so many memories of the salad days as a tiny family.”
“Sorry for your loss treebait, sounds like Pinky had a good run.”
“You got a hug from me. Go back 2 years on this thread and I was there.
You'll see him again.”
