The wife and I have no children so our pets are our kids. Last year we lost 3 pets in a 3 month span so this one really hit us hard. We lost our Miniature Pinscher Ripley today after she suffered from having several strokes. We take very good care of our pets. To give you and idea, my old bird dog "John" had a heated and air conditioner dog house. Ripley broke her neck when she was 3 after jumping off the bed after getting her back claws caught in an afghan blanket and took two surgeries to repair. She lived to 16 years and 6 days which is very rare for a high strung miniature pinscher.

I'm just posting this as a release for me cause I miss her so damn much because she was baby.

She was named after Sigourney Weaver's character in Aliens because she was just as tough and mean to something did not like. She was a one mans dog. :)))

Thanks

I just needed to release

Ripley 01/25/1996 to 01/31/2012

Rest in piece my baby

sorry to hear.
it's sure hard to lose a beloved pet, but you can take comfort from knowing the good life you provided her.

take care.

I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my MinPin, Princess, almost 4 years ago. She was over 18 YOA. There are days when I miss her terribly. She was ALWAYS happy to see me and she protected my daughter and I as if she was a large dog. I never saw her back down from anything no matter the size of the threat. She was remarkable. I can completely understand how you feel. I will keep your family and Ripley in my thoughts today.

I have to warn you I was silently bawling like a baby when I read this at my desk at work ;). I had to go and fix my makeup. Only had my 5 month old Yorkie for about three weeks now. Counting the years I should be able to have him until his death. I hope to have him for at least the 15 years of his projected lifespan according to the Internet. Try to enjoy!!

So sorry to hear this, Randy! I lost two beloved cats last year and still remember my favourite dog and two of my horses to this day. I shed a tear all the time.

Randy: There really isnt anything I can say that will make you feel better. In many ways, pets (particularly a good dog) are better than people. I wish they lived longer. I have two dogs with me now. Between the three of us, we keep ourselves sane (mostly). Treasure the pets that are still living and remember the good times of the ones that have passed.
