Hi on the 14th of August my husband and I put my dog of 9years down at the vets office he had diabetes. He stopped eating and was vomiting and had diarrhea. He wouldn't get up. So I made the choice not let him suffer.I thought I could handle it I can't. I'm having the what ifs and the guilt alone is awful.I miss him so much he is a Carin terrier. He could sit 'speak, lay, shake, dance, circle ,say momma and I love you I miss him so much it hurts to breath I can't sleep all I do is cry he was my world 😢Is it normal to second guess yourself after this? Will I ever be the same Is rainbow bridge real I'm so lost right now.

Oh Rochelle, I know your pain. Almost 4 weeks ago I put my sweet 9 yr old Maltese - Jackson - down. He was diagnosed with terminal cancer on a Thursday and dead on Monday. The fact is the last week of Jackson's life he WAS SUFFERING. I never wanted to see him not want to eat or drink again. 

The fact is, you made the so very hard decision , like I did, out of LOVE for our babies.We never want to see a loved one suffer. As difficult as it is we made the RIGHT DECISION.  This is a very difficult thing to accept.
At first I could not eat or drink....I was that sad and depressed. I surrounded myself with family and took a couple of days off from work to grieve. 
There are moments when I can tell Jackson stories to my friends and laugh and then there are mornings like today I wake up crying because I MISS HIM ! 
I think this road will be up and down for all pet lovers who have gone through this. 

Be kind to yourself and cry as much as you need to. Talk to family and friends about how much your is healing. 

And YES, I truly believe in the RAINBOW BRIDGE ! I take comfort knowing one day I will be with my happy and healthy Jackson one day....
