    I have not been posting here as much as I used to but I had to come let you all know that I lost my boy this morning. Tango was 10 and 4 weeks ago his vet diagnosed him with a brain tumor. He was on pheno and had not had a seizure since the meds began. They didnt know how long he had or even if this would kill him. This morning he woke me up breathing oddly. I knew by the look in his eyes that it was the end. I held him and told him that he could stop fighting that mama was going to be ok and that I loved him. I talked about how he had taken care of me for the past 10 years and now it was time for him to rest. About 15 minutes after our talk he gave a sigh and put his nose into my neck..then he was gone.

    I truly dont know what I will do without him. He has been a huge part of my life for so long. I'm struggling with going to bed tonite because his spot is empty. I have had many calls and emails today I didnt realize how many other people's lives he had touched. Thats been a good feeling.

    Can you guys send me some good thoughts to get me thru the holidays? I really am going to miss my baby. There have been a few times over the years he was my only reason for being here. I like to think he got me thru that and now he knows I'm going to be fine on my own. Our animals are sent here for a reason i beleive...and I thank god that he found me and I let him in my life but most of all that he let me share his life too.


    rest in peace little man..mama loves you always!

    Sorry to hear about your loss. I know it is hard but keep your chin up. Always remeber that Tango may not physically be there but he is always with you, watching over you. You will never be alone.

    Sending licks and wiggles, it does get better with time, I promise.

    Tango's Mama - I just read your announcement and I am so sorry for your loss of Tango. You were blessed to have him for 10yrs. I know your pain as I recently lost my boy Harley to a brain tumor as well. He would have been only 8yrs old this coming Feb. 18th. I feel like I've had one of my limbs amputated...he was that much a part of me, and I know you must feel the same. I received condolence cards from friends and co-workers....never had I received that with my other fur babies. I think I made it clear to everyone just how special and important this one was to me, and I don't know what I would have done had I not been able to come on here and post my thoughts to those whom I know understand the magnitude of my loss.

    Again, I express to you my deepest sympathy and I hope that it's not long before a couple of new and wonderful Boxer angels find there way into our lives. Life just isn't the same without one.

    Tango's mom, I am so sorry to hear of Tango's passing. I am so glad you were able to give him comfort in his final moments! I can only imagine that losing Tango at this time of year must be much harder!! I know that this season is especially hard without my Jake. I am wishing for you warm memories of holidays spent with Tango in years past, and all of the comfort that he brought you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers right now as you go through this season and the days that follow. Godspeed precious Tango angel. Please give Jake a big sloppy kiss at the bridge and may you enjoy each day there until you see Mom again. Michele, know that Tango is still with you in spirit and will be watching over you during this time. Sincerest condolences.

    Your love for and good memories of Tango will help you get through this difficult time. I know there is not one moment of time that you spent with that special baby that you are not thankful for. You were lucky to share your life and heart with Tango and he with you.

    I lost my Crystal on Nov 12, 07, she was 10 year 2 months, she was getting slow but her death was unexpected. I lost my best friend that day and not a day has gone by that I haven't cried or wished for one more walk with her.

    Simple things like, I was outside shoveling snow and thinking about how she would go outside with me and hop like a bunny in the snow or look for a ball or a stick for me to throw for her. She never thought all that work I did outside was very important when there were balls to run after. Those memories made me smile but also brought tears to my eyes. I was outside shoveling snow and crying at the same time. Boxers are such fun dogs and make living so alive that the loss can feel unbearable.

    Take one day at a time, remember the good times, and thank God that you were able to spend 10+ years with a friend that loved you unconditionally.

    Run free Tango and look for my girl Crystal at the bridge.

    Oh Michele, I am so sorry. I remember the first time I saw a pic of Tango, I fell in love. I know how hard this is, but it does get a little easier to bear as time goes by. Killian has been gone almost a year already and of course I still think of him every single day, but I don't cry as much now, I try to think of all the good times and happy memories. Sending you a big ((hug)) and prayers that you will be able to get through this holiday season as easily as possible.
    Rest in peace beautiful Tango boy, now you can meet my Killian at the bridge.

    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose someone you love so much and even harder to lose someone that has been your rock when you've most needed it. Tango was very fortunate to have you and you to have him. Sometimes the most profound relationships that we have are the shortest ones and while it seems unfair, we are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to meet someone so special.. Tango will always be a part of you, in your heart and mind and when you need him, that is where you'll find him. My biggest Christmas hug will go to you and remember, we all love you and Tango will always love you too.
