My three Newfies are in a row in a small stonewalled in area in my woods. I used my backhoe and gave then proper 6' deep holes. It hurts so much to lose them, that I haven't been able to get another dog for 8 years now. Good Luck, Rick
It is heart-wrenching to lose a beloved pet for sure.. I had the vet put down 2 within 6 months and vowed not to get another like you.. Not to be outdone my wife thought I needed another dog even though I told her I didn't.. (I don't know why the heck she bothered asking me in the first place!) 2 years later I am still thanking her as I've filled one of the holes in my heart.. There's nothing better than getting home to the wagging tail and unconditional love a dog unselfishly gives when you come home from a long day @ work.. My dogs are buried (sans the backhoe) by our big English Walnut tree in the back yard so we see them every time we get home and their tails wag in Heaven..
We've always had dogs but the present one is a horse posing as a dog!
