I feel terrible for anyone that has to make this decision. But we all know it is the right one to make. I had a Chow that was in a great deal of pain, she had Cushings Disease in the advanced stages, and she was 14. I had come to terms with the timing of her 'last visit' because I could see it in her eyes, but my husband had not. When he finally did, our vet was kind enough to come to our home, so she went peacefully in her favorite spot on her front porch. We lovingly carried her to the woods to bury her in a special place. It's never easy somce they love you unconditionally, but we have to accept the selfless act of taking that step for them. My Sheba has been gone for 5 years now, and I cry as I write this, but I hold on to the precious happy memories of what a wonderful dog she was. I frequently look at photos, and that always makes me smile, she was happy during her life, and brought me great happiness. Hold on to that.
Thank you all again for your warm thoughts and prayers. It's still hard and I know it will be for some time. It's gotten a little easier with each day, I no longer cry buckets, just cups when I think of him. Thank you again.
Im so sorry =[. I know that no words can express how you feel right now, but as time goes on it will be easier and right now you should just remember him/her. Even though it was really hard for you, with the pain that he was in, it most likely was the right decision for both you and him. He may be such a happy dog right now and probaly would want you to feel the same =)
I am so very sorry, I am actually tearing up now. I know how you feel because my dog died just a couple weeks ago and I cried a lot. We buried him in my backyard and we are going to get him a tombston, we already got him flowers and were going to make like a garden thing around his grave. Anyways, I am awfully sorry, and feel your pain. God bless,
You can run with the turkies, but I'll be laughing when I'm soaring with the eagles.
I am so sorry about your loss. Two weeks ago, I had to say good bye to my dog. I know how you feel, and it was one of the hardest things. Kalvin is your angel now with paws. God needed him more than you did. Keep the memories strong, he will always be with you.
