I had to say goodbye to my boy Chance yesterday. He was only 8 and far too young for leaving. As a puppy he was diagnosed with Lymes disease. Although it laid dormant since then...last week it hit with vengeance. Or at least that's what they think happened. They were baffled at how quickly it hit and how fast it took him. A lil' back story, on September 29th we brought home a new puppy and I have to say my Chance was not overly fond of his annoying new sister. Today I'm feeling so guilty. I wonder if the stress of the new puppy was too much for him. Was his poor body already weak and I didn't realize it? What if I didn't get the puppy, would he still be with me today? I will never have the answers to these questions but I can't help feeling horrible at the loss of my favorite boy. I feel like I should have known better. It's overwhelming. Does this get easier?

I'm so sorry to hear about your doggy. It is very natural to feel guilty when a pet dies. You will see that if you read the stories on this board. I'm not a vet, but it doesn't seem very likely that the new puppy had anything to do with what happened. :( I lost my little chihuahua three weeks ago to an accident and I also feel extremely guilty. I have been obsessing about all the ways it could have turned out differently and how I could have saved her if only, this, that and the other. She was only nine and chihuahuas can live a long time, so she was only about halfway through her potential life span. It has gotten easier over the three weeks. I still cry when i'm alone, but am able to keep it together at work now whereas before I would start randomly crying and couldn't stop it. Again, I am so sorry about Chance. It's so, so hard to lose a pet. Hugs to you and hang in there.

Thank you so much. Im very sorry for your loss as well. I've been going over it and over it in my mind. I believe my puppy was brought to me for a reason. I think my Chance knew he was sick and he brought her to me because he knew I would need her. He was so calm when I brought her home...almost as if he was saying "yes she's the one". I too have my moments but I know he is with me.
