I had to say goodbye to my beloved Tater Marie (basset) around this time last year (just after Christmas and right before my birthday). I know what you are going through and how tough your decision must have been ... but a mama knows. We sure feel sorry for ourselves when they are gone though don't we! Find peace in knowing you did the right thing and remember all the goofy times and smile.

Maybe your big boy will run into my sweet girl on the other side.

My name is Lori.

thanks Patty, Memphis is a great name for anyone. his name was almost "Cash" or "riot" Cash- cause he cost us alot of it, and Riot because when we first picked him up, he was running around at the breeders house pulling floor mats, flipping them upside down, just causing a riot. but im glad we decided on Memphis... it suited him well.

I'm so sorry.  Even though you know you are doing right by your sweet boy, I know how hard it is.  Please know you are in our thoughts.  Hopefully it will bring you some peace knowing that he is young again and pain free and that he knew he was well loved.
