I lost my sweet Boston terrier Cosmo on Christmas. He was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago. Christmas Eve he was running around with a treat in his mouth like any normal night. I just don’t understand how the next day he could be gone. I knew this day was coming but the pain is unbearable and I feel so sad and my heart is broken. My boyfriend said Cosmo waited until his entire family was gathered together to say goodbye. I knew Christmas morning that something was terribly wrong when I woke up and filled his food and water dish he just looked away and ate nothing. I ran and got a treat and he just looked down and showed no interest in it whatsoever. I screamed to my boyfriend and my 23 year old son and they ran in to help. We called the emergency vet and they said to bring him in because he started breathing heavy. We never made it to the vet. He died in my arms. I am sick about it and I can’t stop replaying those moments in my head. Cosmo had such a good life and he truly was my best friend. He followed me around the house all the time. Where I was Cosmo was. My boyfriend said Cosmo died with dignity and he knew that he didn’t want to upset his mom and left this earth the Cosmo way with thought for his family that loved him so much. I have never seen my 23 year old so upset and that also is making my heart hurt so bad. Walking into my house without him here is very very lonely and sad. I will always love you my sweet baby Cosmo.

I just lost my 11 year old baby girl on Dec. 6th. The pain and shock of the suddenness will lessen but I'm still torn to shreds. My baby got a clean bill of health and had a benign tumor removed in October. Sitting with me on the couch one minute and having a stroke and me giving her CPR the next. She made it to emergency where they stabilized her but she was already gone. We took her home to say goodbye to the kids. My husband and sons were torn apart. My boys are still struggling and that adds to my grief. I'm so sorry for your loss. Worst pain imaginable 😔

It doesn't seem possible to miss them as we do or that it can hurt so bad. It is the worst kind of pain. I lost my darling boy almost a year ago and during Christmas I cried several times thinking that he missed Christmas, it was so special to him. He loved opening gifts, didn't matter who is was for, he would help. I'm 76 years old now and have never experienced pain like this. I'm not sure why they are so special but they are in our hearts forever. I am so sorry for your loss. Words are never enough. David
