I am very sorry to hear about your dog.  I've lost many pets over the years and know how hard this is on everyone in the family.  You'll never forget the dog and have wonderful memories for the rest of your life.

Thanks guys for all your thoughts. It is a bit tough because she was bought when we started our family. So she became very close and more like a kid than anything. She was looking a bit rough like Joey & after said, but she was having a hard time walking and getting up from laying down. Her hips were taking a toll on her. She was losing hair and getting very grey.
So yesterday we started tearing out the yard she was in. I have a couple of neighbors that have big dogs, so I may give them the house. But other than that, there really isn't much else to do. The wood fencing was torn out on Monday and I started pulling out the posts. I need to take this all out soon cause everytime I look at the yard, I keep thinking her.

But anywway, thanks guys. Most people will say it's just a dog, but as many know, when they are in your family for so long, the family member/kid aspect starts taking over.

Sorry to hear about your lab, Chad. Pets are part of the family. Even though they are pets, loosing one is hard.

i'm sure that you provided him with a great fulfilling life and he did the same for you. unconditional love is something special - i took it hard when my 14 year old airdale died...

I'm glad that you were prepared, and didn't take it too hard - I hope that your kids get over Dusty's death soon... perhaps a low-maintenance pet (turtle, rabbit, etc) would be good in the interim between dogs?

Chad, sorry to hear about Dusty. It hurts when you lose a family member like that. I am glad that you were able to prepare for it some, but I also know there is no way to completely be prepared for it. You seem to be handling it as well as anyone can expect. You can tell she was loved and had a great life.

RIP Dusty.
