    We got Shammy when I was eleven. Our family had taken a loss of my father the month prior (April 16, 2007) to getting Shammy and Bailey. We got Bailey in May of 2007, we call her Bailey May! Bailey, black lab/shepherd mix. Shammy, brown chesapeake bay retriever/pitbull mix. Both are 12 years of age. Now I don't know exactly how to explain this. But these two not only grew up with me (Now 23 years old), but they became such beloved members of our family.

    Recently, Shammy has had severe weight loss. Actually to be truthful. She stopped getting up with ease and no longer comes up stairs. We took her to the vet to get blood work and other examinations. She has severe cancer that spread throughout her body. I had to step out to cope this all in and I have tears as I write this. Shammy will be put down sometime this week, I just needed a few days with her. She is so special. A sweetheart. It has brought me to the conclusion that I will not bring in another dog to my family in the future. I became too emotionally attached. And when it comes to the end, it is very difficult to say goodbye.

    Shammy was adopted from North Shore animal league, Long Island NY in June of 2007. She was a wild one as a pup. Funniest memory I'd have of her as a puppy was her cornering my mom barking so loud and intensely at her and my mom would freak out and our puppy became dominant lmfao! As yappy barky she was as a puppy. She matured into a very loving dog that I can proudly say she was family to those that ask about her. She and Bailey would run circles around the house full speed and my eleven year old self would dart after them trying to keep up. Shammy and Bailey brought life into a depressed household who just lost their dad/husband. It was the spark that I and my family needed to get back up and enjoy life. Shammy loved the sun too. One of the tannest dogs around if you ask me. Lol. Bailey would be in the sun for 5 minutes then chill in the shade for hours. Shammy was in the sun chilling. Just this morning I was laying next to Shammy as she breathed very hard. I talked to her telling her how much she means to me and us as a family. Shammy rested her head on me as we rested together. It was sort of like she knew her time is dwindling.

    Before I ramble on, and I am sorry if I repeated myself. I will miss her dearly and I don't have much people to share this with so here I am on a site I find myself on daily. Shammy will be missed.

    I couldn't get the url to work. Maybe I am a little out of it. Idk my patience is not all there. Sorry I wanted to show a few pictures of Shammy in the past.



    Bailey is nearing 13 and is in fair health. Just slower of old age.

    When they say a dog is a man’s best friend, they truly mean it. When I lived at home we had to put down 3 dogs. Tough man. It isn’t easy for sure. My advice for you is just have that mindset you are doing them a favor. You are going to let her rest without any pain, she will be pain free. Also, just make sure she is laying down all comfortable before they do it. Sorry to hear about this though, it isn’t easy that’s for sure.

    A rare serious moment from me:

    I accidentally put together a string of words to my wife the night our dog passed that made us both feel better:

    The huge hole you feel at the loss of a pet is the price you pay for having that pet's unconditional love. I wouldn't trade those 9 years of happiness for 1000 years of being left with just memories.

    Keep your head up bro. It gets better.
