InControlK9 I've never had a dog that has died before... my last GSD I had to rehome due to military reasons and not having anyone to keep her while away.. that was pretty hard but... I would say the hardest part is the puppy stage... constantly having to taker the pup out every 2 hrs though out an entire day and even at night... having to keep cleaning the kennel tray after she pees in it... over and over and over... having to keep getting our carpets cleaned.. trying to get rid of the odor of urine... the list goes on but you get the point

Thecowboysgirl Losing them, no doubt. I say all the time the only thing I don't love about dogs is that they just don't live long enough. Devastating to have one pass. But a puppy in the house does seem to take the edge off because you can't mope too much with a flumpy kid who wants to play and you can see the hope for the future...

Second worst would be sick or injured. But the day you wake up to a happy face who is all better make me think of someone else's post. Anything I find mildly annoying....I would give anything to have that instead of a sick dog so when they are pestering me and I wish they weren't I am grateful for a healthy, happy dog.

echo's dad The only thing that sucks about owning a dog is when they pass away.

Michael W Leaving for work in the morning, when all you really want to do is spend the day walking in the woods with the dogs.

Momo For me, saying goodbye was tough but tougher still, is watching your wife and kids say their goodbyes.

Jayfeather Trying to teach the rest of my family how to handle the dog! Seriously, I sometimes find my parents teaching him the exact opposite of what I expect him to be doing! Ehem, you can't make a dog and cat friends by shoving the cat in the dog's face! (Dog looks at me apologetically). Yeah, I think that's probably the worst, but as everyone learns over time it gets better. Basically, learning to be patient, with the family as well as the dog!

alpha. I'd have to agree with saying goodbye. I get all homesick sometimes thinking about my dog.
It's weird but yeah she gives me like "don't go" look.

hemicop Saying goodbye. It's never easy, never gets easier and you swear each time you'll never get/have another one like him......

I absolutely agree with you...that's the hardest...when you don't know what's wrong with your dog and what should you do... when you must go to vet and when not...
