I had to put down my 15 year old dog earlier this morning and I am heart broken. I’ve had him since I was 9 and he was honestly the best dog in the world. He helped me so much in life and because of him I am still here honestly. I cannot stop crying. When does it start to get easier?

I am so unbelievably sorry for your loss. 
Cancer stole my dog from me 5 weeks and 6 days ago. The first 3 weeks I cried constantly. Those days were a blur. I still cry and mourn his loss every day, but the tears have slowed down. I have even spoken about him and not cried. That's a big step. I don't feel it's getting easier. But I cherish watching all those videos I took on my phone of him running, swimming & playing and it makes me smile. I think it will keep getting better, but I have never experienced grief like this before. He was my shadow. My best friend, as I'm sure yours was to you. It will get worse before it gets better.

I know the pain of loss. Your heart is so broken and your pain runs so deep. They offer so much love and support in our darkest days and so much joy to our everyday. You are going to cry for a very long time. Then you'll start to have good days where you can smile at a memory or something you shared with him. Your grief will come in waves, one day you'll be okay then the next you won't. This is all part of grieving. For the rest of your life you will mourn his passing. I lost my heart dog Termy, over 19 months ago and I still cry. Not as much as I did the first 6 months but I still cry. I still can't talk about him to others because I get choaked up and want to cry. Termy was just over 16 when I let him go. Try to do something to honor him. I made a memorial garden and had a flag made with his picture on it. I go outside every single night and search for his star and talk to him and yes, sometimes cry. They take a huge part of our hearts with them and there will always be an emptiness. Cry as much as you need but remember the journey to.
Love and doggie hugs

I am unbelievably sorry for your loss as well. Maks was indeed the best friend I could have ever had. Thank you for responding I appreciate more than you could ever know! Thank you for being honest! Everyone around me is just trying to be positive, which I completely understand but I know it’s not the complete truth. It comforts me knowing that I am not the only one feeling this way and that one day I will be able to have a good day and even think about him without crying. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for responding. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss! This is honestly the hardest thing I have ever had to go through and it’s comforting to know that I am not alone. I love the idea of a memorial and I’m sure it has helped you a ton. I try to think of something positive every time I start to cry but it is very hard right now. I am looking forward to the easier days. Thank you so much for your response again it has really helped me in this process.
