Glacier The commitment to training. We're at it day in and day out. We're getting better at it. I'm learning how to clearly communicate what I want to him, but man, some days it feels like it will never come together. I know it will eventually come together, but sometimes it feels like I'm walking around in the dark. My neighbors always wonder why I spend so much time with my dog, lol.

Jenny720 They are only with us for such a short time and yet go through so much with us. Saying goodbye is the hardest thing.

Andaka Saying goodbye. No matter how long they live, it is never long enough.

dogdad I was going to chime-in and just say "The End", but after reading a few of these I realized everyone feels pretty-much the same.

I'd gladly go thru the poopy-stage, whining all nite as a pup, stepping in barf while barefoot in the middle of the night, vet-bills, the shredded new leather couch, and so so many more things over and over ... if "The End" didn't exist.

IronhorseRomo I think loosing a dog is the hardest with out a doubt.
But aside from that: I think the training and hardheadedness. Bath time, cleaning all the poop out of my backyard. Making sure their clean when they come in. It's a lot of time and energy, not to mention money to be a good dog owner. There's a lot of good memories along the way and its a lot of work to get your dog where you want them.
To many owners just like the idea of having a dog and quickly realize they require a lot of attention.

jkristia I did not read all the pages in this thread, so I'm probably just repeating, but having lost my dog this week (8 1/2 years) - having to make the call to the vet and later the same day loose the dog was definitely the hardest part.

RachelK1 Losing them. When they pass away it is the hardest thing to go through. Dogs are so loyal and give unconditional love. Everything else with having a dog is easy in comparison.

Slate's Mom Losing them. Be it sickness or just old age, losing them is THE absolute hardest part for me.
