Today was the first day without our furbaby Lois and I miss her so much She was a 4 year old Dorgi full of spunk and LOVED cuddling. My husband and I never had a dog like her before who wanted to be cuddled so much and cozy. Last Saturday she wouldn't jump up on the couch like she has done a 100 times before, we thought she just pulled a muscle but by Sunday morning she had gotten worse. We rushed her to the vet where she was diagnosed with IVDD. We were relieved when they told us surgery would fix it and I had insurance on her but as the week went in they found out she had a bruising of the spinal cord all very rare and unavoidable. My husband and I prepared to be the parents of a paralyzed dog and we're fully committed but the issue worsen and the vet said there was no hope. We spent several hours with her in the visitation room with her on the last day living on here and making her comfortable. We wanted her last hours to be happy and safe. Now my husband and I are just lost, this entire house is her and now it it empty, too quiet and foreign. We loved her so much and my heart is so broken I feel like I can't see the other side. I just lost my 14 year old pug in Nov and Lois helped us through that. Two babies in less than a year is too much. I suffer from bipolar and my babies were essential to my well being. I don't know what to do and I'm worried she is scared and lonely wherever she is.

I am so sorry for your loss,

It hurts the most when the loss comes even when you are prepared to support your baby in any way you can. Animals are so good at disguising pain and discomfort that we humans are shocked to just what extent it actually goes when we go to the vet.

Words lack me to offer enough support but please know you are not alone and we all share your loss.

Stay strong and please make sure to take care of yourself despite the grief.

It's our first Saturday without her and I can't bring myself to get out of bed, there is no baby Lois, no routine. It's all too quiet and empty and my heart hurts missing her. So many things I looked forward to on on our weekends together. I can barely breath I miss her so much. The world is not right without her

I unexpectedly made the decision to euthanize my beloved sidekick this morning, and I can relate so much to that feeling! That wondering if she is scared or lonely. I even started panicking imagine the injection didn't work and her heart started beating after everyone had left the clinic. I am filled with the most profound sense of dread.

Ohmyheart I'm so sorry that you are going through this too and you are in my thoughts. I think the worry/dread is how our minds interpret the lack of control of the situation at least that is the logical way but honestly logical is not how any of us feel. I'm trying to be positive that our babies are happy, healthy and safe wherever they are as much as I wish for them to be back in our Laps and hearts. Hugs to you
