Sorry to hear about your dog.

I spent a lot of money trying to save my last Rottweiler ten plus years ago only to have to put her down. Atleast your dog is like mine, not suffering anymore.

I am so sorry for your loss - that part makes keeping dogs so very difficult, but only because our bonds with them grow so very strong. Sounds like she was one-of-a-kind, and will certainly be missed. Thank you for doing her the Final Favor, she is now at peace, and surely appreciates that.

Immediately following my Grandmothers passing my father was visited by her in a dream. She came to tell him that she was happy and didn't hurt anymore (it wasn't quick), and brought his childhood dog to visit with him as well. Now my pops ain't the guy to embelish, and he doesn't believe in the paranormal, and maybe it was his sub or super concious; he truely believes it was her and Buddy, and that they are together, with the rest of our dearly departed family, patiently awaiting the Glorious Reunion.

So, I can't wait to see my best friend again, either. And that helps.

My sincerest condolences to you.

I've lost several of my best friends over the years, and I miss every one of them. I'm always comforted by reading the following poem...

The Rainbow Bridge

This old Twilight Zone "The Hunt" pretty much says it all about how I feel about my pets...

Thanks for all the kind words.Some dont understand but we really treated her like our own child.She was the most important thing to me.Im thankful I was there so myself and my wife were the last people she saw.Im also glad I gave her absolutely anything she wanted to eat her last few weeks,maybe longer.Ill never forget and will always miss her.

That sucks. Hard to replace an old friend.
I had some of my shepherds ashes put into a little capsule with a lanyard so I can clip her onto my backpack take her hiking with me. She's still the trail boss in my book.

Thats a really good idea.The vet who was very kind to us shaves some of her fur so Im going to put that in some kind of small container.I like the lanyard idea.What type of container did you use?

My heart seriously hurts when I think of all the things I loved about her.I dont know how to cope.She really was my life.

Sorry to hear it. Let the stages of grief wash over you naturally, take care not to get stuck in any one stage. Usually takes a month or so to get through a pet loss. In a month or so go to the shelter and rescue a new friend, they will love you for it and be just as loyal. God bless you, we are dog people too and have been there.

I really love pets & the ones we have (still have 2 puppies) we treat them like our kids.Sometimes I wonder why we set ourselves up for heartbreak.
I also think I get too attached & look at my pets,(Molly for sure) as my kid.Maybe thats why Im taking it so hard.I have literally cried prob 5 times today.Im usually really strong but right now Im such a wimp.Theres just so many things I loved about Molly.Its hard to explain.

I know how you feel I lost my chocolate labs a year apart from each other, they were both 13 years old my female was a wonderful insightful dog that paid attention to what the family was doing. She woke me up one morning early and made me go to the bathroom door where she would not leave, pawing it - come to find out the 12 year old son had went in to take a bath, locked the door and fell dead asleep. She was relentless until I picked the lock and woke him up. She had 2 ACL surgeries in her life and was my best friend. It hurt like hell when she grew old and I had to put her down. The male had diabetes and not being a light dog (110 lbs) he lost his eyesight and for a year I gave him shots and carried him out to the yard, to bed etc. Long story short, cherish what you had with her, know in your heart she loved you as you did her and most of all that there are many loving dogs in need of a good loving home and you can provide them with the love and care they need while they give it back to you ten fold. I have 3 now and they are hooked to my hip 24/7, it will be ok!

It's ironic in a way that we can only love things that will one day die, but the ephemeral and fleeting nature of existence is what makes it so special.

I'm sorry that you are aching right now, I feel it just reading your posts. Don't ever forget that you gave her a life full of joy just like she gave you.

I feel for you guys.

I couldn't read this thread for days. And now my heart is breaking for you. I'm going though a really tough time and my pooch Henry is, quite frankly, the only thing keeping me from jumping the tracks.

Rest in a peace Molly...

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. They give unconditional love, and it's very hard when they have to go.

So sorry man. My pup is literally my best friend. It's amazing what an effect they have on our lives. Keep your head up and know she's resting in a better place watching over you.

I'm so sorry to hear this, I remember your post about her from earlier this year. It's the most effortless thing ever to love a dog unconditionally, and they give it right back tenfold. Just from your posts about her, I'm positive she knew just how much she was loved.

Rest in sweet peace, Molly.

Thanks,we tried everything to help her and up until a week ago she was normal for the most part.Just until the last few days.I would sleep on the couch with her trying to comfort her.Her breathing was really fast and like she couldent catch her breath.she started not eating and not being able to control her bowels.She just wasent having the quality of life & I didnt want to wait until she was in pain,she def didnt deserve that.I still have a hard time looking at her pictures.What a horrible experience when we had her put down.Im glad me and my wife were the last things she saw and heard.Sad.
Thanks everyone for all the kind words.
