Sad to say that we lost Mocha yesterday. She was maybe 5 years old as hedgehogs only have a average lifespan of at most 3-6 years with some reports of them lasting almost 10 years. We took her to the animal clinic this afternoon to have her cremated to be picked up on Thursday. My wife and I were very upset yesterday and on the way to the clinic. We have se7en more of these and it’s difficult not to get attached. This picture was taken last week.

The birdfeeder has been interesting lately. We've seen lots of Blue Jays, Cardinals, mockingbirds, and woodpeckers. But these guys were very unexpected: Green parakeets. Not the first visit, but the first visit by more than one

Our lab/pointer/Weimaraner mix "Tank" was with our family since March of 2010 and we put him down about 4 weeks ago. He was 14 and absolutely a delight of a dog. In his younger years he had incredible energy and speed. He loved to jump off docks into water and we had him in a competition where he pushed out an 18 foot jump. He was great at jumping straight out but didn't jump up so pretty impressive distance considering his approach.

He was a rescue dog that we found at a foster home west of the Twin Cities, MN. Apparently he was from Iowa, trained as a hunting dog, and then the previous owner just didn't want him anymore when he got to be 1.5 years old? So many great memories and we spoiled him so much in his final days. My boys (who are 9 and 7) knew him their whole lives so it was super hard to tell them he was being put down but we were super transparent with why and what the process was for Tank.

I miss having a fur baby running around the house but feels like I'm years away from being able to accept that I could have another puppy as there is no way they could measure up to Tank.

Yes of course. The bulk of my pics in my camera roll are from the 1st couple years of having him (pre-kids) but the last one was taken a couple weeks before he was put down. Took him on a little side by side ride, at very low speeds of course.

PS-- yes, I am sitting on a toilet in that one pic. Can't remember the back story there.

I felt the same way after we put our girl Poppy down after 13 years. We waited about 5 months and weren't really looking or feeling ready for another one then on a whim we visited our vet who was having adoptions and voila we wound up being chosen by Bugs, best decision that was made for us.

Sorry for your loss.

Seldom will a dog measure up to another. They each have their own personal potential and personality. It can be hard sometimes but it's up to us to recognize that and nuture each pupper as such. Otherwise, it's unfair to everyone.

Your family and Tank gave each other 10+ years of love and companionship that nothing can ever change or take away. A new pup would be just that: a new pup, not a new Tank.

It's a shame that our furry friends don't have longer life spans.

Tank was a handsome boy.
And yeah, seldom does a dog measure up to another. They all have their own persona - some commonalities, but each their own individual.

I do wish our furry pals had longer life spans.

My gal stretching, chilling and riding shotgun in the M4.

She's an Australian Cobberdog.
Laidback and sensitive, I never met a dog with so much empathy.

Depending on time of year and trim she either resembles an elegant Poodle or Chewbacca

Our family had a moment this past weekend when we were out of town. We came across a family that had a 90 lb wiemaraner that was 9 months old. He was a beautiful dog and I had an impulse to steal him. It made me think that at some point I will be able to accept getting a new puppy and I think the family is aligned on a weimaraner. So the dog was amazing but they completely named him wrong by calling him "Chippy". Not a match for that dog at all.

That really tears me up. I already have 4 Rottweilers waiting for me there. Their names and ages are Martin ( 10 ), Mugen ( 13 ), Motegi (6 ) and Leonidas ( 5 ) already there waiting for me.
