Tom you do have a great life as many of us know the weight on your shoulders and heart is super heavy. You DO care so much for all life for years or a short moment in time.

Tom we are with you as always in hapyness or sorrow.

Very sad to read this tomo. They give us unconditional love. It will hurt for a long time, but think of all the great times you had with Griff. Let those thoughts put a smile on your face.

Tomo, my deepest sympathies. Please accept that you have done nothing wrong, and no one or no force in the universe is trying to send you that message. Heed Don's words. Animals find us for a reason. Your pups found you. My guess is because they knew they would have a loving home for the time they would have on earth. During Griff's life with you, however short, he had a large mission, to fill the void left by Stubby's passing. And that he did. You shared your heart with these dogs, and they did likewise. That's a remarkable thing.

Tom, I'm so sorry. I can only imagine what is going through your mind at the moment.

As you may have heard, we recently lost our ECOdiesel - not a loving pet, but a big part of our TDI family. It brings back fond memories of GTGs and friends, as I'm sure Griff and Stubby have done for you.

I hope you and your family can adopt another bundle of joy soon.

Best wishes!

-Lawson & Jason

Thanks Lawson....I knew about your loss and posted shortly after it happened...I am having a terrible time coping...Luckily for me I am in Az with my brothers packing up Moms house, So I don't have a lot of time to think about it right now...at home I couldn't turn around without seeing a reminder of Griff......

Sorry for your loss Tom. This thread is a testament to not only the good people in the world but also the great community of the TDIclub.

When I was 13 my dad finally let the family get a dog. Sadly we had to put him down 2 days before his second birthday. I know the feeling of emptiness and it really cannot be replaced. If you never lost Stubby you would never have picked up Griff. So maybe there is another great dog out there that you will be able to spend time with as a result of this whole ordeal.

Best of luck and sorry for your loss.

Animals add so much to our lives if we let them. Any time they share with us is good time.

This is soooo sad.

I feel your pain. Hang in there tomo. I lost my Belgium in 2008, after 8 years. I've had it rough now for 4 thinking about him. It was today he was put down for many kidney complications.

Again, hang in there.
