I spent everyday of the last 12 years with my beloved chocolate lab molly brown
She was my soul mate and my best friend
I lost boyfriends that were too jealous of our bond
I got fired from a job bc I wouldn’t accept them telling me to no longer bring my dog to work
I missed many events and trips bc I always told myself she only has me to give her the best life I possibly can and I will have the rest of my life to do all those things
So you see how much I loved her
Sure she was getting old but nothing prepared me for what happened last week
In the morning we did our walk and I went to my kickboxing class and after got my nails done
And when I got back she was wheezing so I rushed her to the vet, she was diagnosed with pneumonia
By Sunday and was kept in ICU for 4 days
The vets seemed to have lost hope but I kept visiting her and taking her steaks and giving her love and they were shocked when she To a torn for the better, but she had had signs of neurological
Damage in her hind legs but with the pneumonia and having laid down for five days she couldn’t walk on her back legs and had lost major muscle mass
So that was a huge concern
We brought her home and gave her sooo much love
Held her, did reiki on her and even looked in to wheels for her hind legs as her spirit was great and her pneumonia seemed in the mend
The next night she starting coughing and there seemed to be fluid in her lungs
I had to make the saddest decision of my life to let my girl go with dignity
We had laps of love come to the house and surrounded with my dear friends and my brother we said goodbye to my daughter
My heart is torn
Half of me is dead
I’m beside myself
I’m lost without her
I want to scream for days

Dear Roshy:

I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Molly Brown.  I just love that name...

You two had a bond that can't be broken even though physically you cannot see her right now.  Believe me, she is with you and always will be.  These first few days and weeks are hell on earth...I don't want to sugarcoat this.  I thought I was going to lose my mind with grief and we've been through this twice already in the last 5 years.

Losing your best friend is a pain like no other.  Lots of people don't understand..."it's just a dog..." No, it isn't.  She was your family member.

What saved me through this whole nightmare is this website of caring and compassionate people who truly "get it."  I couldn't have survived without it.  The more you can come here and talk about Molly Brown it will be sort of a healing process.  I'd love to see pictures when you are up to it.

I'm sending thoughts and prayers of comfort to you.

Barb (Angel Brandy's and Angel Miriam's mom) and now mom to Bree

Roshi-  The love you had for Molly Brown certainly shines in your prose.
            In honour of your Beloved, do light a candle for her.
            The latter has helped me immensely o'er the last 10m, having laid my 16y chihuahua to rest. Also kudos to The Forum for the 24/7 support, needed for US during Our hour of need.
I agree, the dignity of our fur family members is imperative. To Happier times...Peace be with You.      Sherry

I can tell by every word in this note how much you loved your girl.  I know that feeling.  I hope you find peace soon and know that she felt the same about you.  You were both lucky to have each other but it's never long enough.

Do the best you can.  She would want that.

I understand your bond with your Molly Brown. My Peanut was my world. If I could have taken him everywhere I would have but he was a 22 lb. king charles cavalier. I worked from home and had him in my arms 24/7. When I went out I could not wait to get home and see his mushy face and hold him and love him. He passed Monday and I am totally heartbroken. I have another older dog; she is a king charles cavilier/cocker spaniel mix. I had her longer but did not have the bond I had with Peanut. Peanut slept next to my face every night and in the morning when I woke up we would give each other kisses. I spoke to him like he was a person. I am dog sitting an adorable little dog and just started crying because I feel like I am 'cheating' on Peanut. It hits me in waves that he is gone and I feel like I cant breathe.  I came on the website just now because my husband just dosen't get it. I know he misses Peanut but not like I do. Eventually I will get another King charles cavalier but I am trying to grieve him properly. I talk to him and tell him how much I love and miss him. Sometimes I feel he is sad because he is not with me. We had a very codependent relationship which is fine with me :-)  Hang in there. Molly knows how much you loved her. If you need to talk, I am here for you xoxo
