I know the pain and share your grief. I've had dogs all my life, knowing that I was (hopefully) going out live them and it still hurts when you lose them.
Here's my dog Haggis doing what he loves most in the whole wide world, slobbering on the side of my SUV

We are trying to be as normal with him as we can be, but of course we are slipping him little “love notes” as the time draws near. Last night I let him clean out the remains of a container of ground beef. Something we would’ve never allowed otherwise.
Haggis is a great looking dog. I think “in-between” snouts look noble on a dog. Thick, but not to stubby or long. Think Great Dane snouts.
To make my heartbreak a little more complete, a favorite uncle of mine died over the weekend. His funeral was last night and his burial today. He was suffering, so this was a release, but still . . .

I was crying into my breakfast bowl this morning just looking at him laying there waiting for me to finish, like he normally does. So he struggles to his feet and comes over and lays his head in my lap. Despite his prickly personality, he seems to know when we are feeling bad and would always stick right by whomever was feeling ill or sad. One time when my wife was violently ill with a stomach bug, he climbed up on the bed and laid right next to her back and refused to budge.
We are treating him as if this is just another day . . .
