I had to put my dog down 2 days ago. Although she had health issues and I knew it was inevitable, everything went down pretty quickly at the end. She was 12. I am so sad and I cannot stop crying. I feel like a crazy person. I can't stop thinking about her, missing her, picturing all the good times and also visualizing everything about that last sad day. I want her back so much. Anyone have words of advice? I CANNOT stop crying.

This is a dreadful time for you and I know exactly where you are coming from. The pain of losing a beloved dog is indescribably destitute. This has just happened to you and I expect you are still in shock. All I can say is cry when you want to - I'm still breaking down daily and Max has been gone nearly 5 weeks. I think about him all the time and pine for him so I am sure you are feeling the same. I think the grief makes us fear we are losing our minds. Things will get better very slowly for us although our lives will never be the same again. Think how lucky we are to have loved an animal so passionatly and for those who don't understand what joy they are missing out on. This is the second dog that I have lost and both times the end came very suddenly - we have no time to adjust. This board is a great help and also the blue cross has a free counselling number that you can ring anytime - they have all been through what we are suffering. I found writing to max helped enormously too. Take care and remember this is early days for us. Thinking of you xxx

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved dog.  2 Days is a very short time and what you’re feeling is perfectly normal. 
Give yourself time to grieve.  I lost my Murphy a year ago and still miss him something terrible.  Remembering the good times will help you and someday you can look back at the Happy times and smile not cry.
Come visit here often.  Every one of us has been where you are (some of us more than once).   So, we all know exactly what you're feeling and going through.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my Dooley almost a month ago and I think about him all day and cry all the time. The grief and feelings of loss never leave but the space around them gets bigger and you will be able at some point to disengage from your sadness. I think it's our body's way of coping. I woke this morning with Dooley's excited tail thumping on the bed, ready to go for his morning walk. It took a second to realise he was not there. But for that one second he was back with me and I cherish that brief moment...

Sending you hugs,

Fi

I appreciate the time you took to respond. Your comments are so helpful and I know things will get better. It's just hard not to be sad. Again, thank you.

I had to put my 16yr old baby to sleep on Friday. It was a decision I found hard to make and agonised over it for weeks. But in the end he was going down hill fast and it was the way I proved to him, how much he meant to me. He is at peace but I feel like I'm dying inside. Fudge was more to me than a dog, he was there when I cried tears nó one knew about. He loved me regardless of how I looked or how I felt. Everytime I looked into his eyes my heart melted. He took a part of me with him when he left. I haven't slept in my room since he left because he's not beside me. I can't begin to put into words the complete and utter desolation I'm feeling but I'm thankful for the love he gave to me and the memories I will carry with me until we meet again.

Oh fudge I know exactly what you are going through - it’s just devastating. I’ve actually got a teddy wrapped in Max’s blanket next to me in bed as that’s where he slept. This is a really tough time and I’m so sorry for you xxx

I feel your pain!  i am in the same place right now.  Put my beautiful 16 yr old yorkie Mocha to sleep on Friday and I can't function.  I had to put her things away cuz it hurts me to see them but then at the same time i feel guilty cuz it's like saying she didn't exist.   I have lost 12 pounds cuz food just doesn't appeal to me.  I am so sorry for your loss

It's a heartbreaking time for all of us but we can take comfort in knowing others are sharing our pain. All our furbabies are together, happy and pain free, full of the love we gave them and eagar to meet us again.
