I put my dog Pringle down a year ago, she was a pitbull. she was my service dog, my best friend, and my child. She became paralyzed in the legs and she couldn’t walk. She was in so much pain and the doctors said there was nothing we could do except for letting her know how much we loved her and all we could do was say goodbye. I miss her so much and I can’t get over her. I have disabilities and having her made me feel so much better about my disability. I am blind in one eye, I have severe anxiety, ptsd, and depression. I’ve never had a friend like Pringle. I don’t know how to get over this. I cry so much over her. I want her back. She loved everyone and everything and she was the best dog in the world...

I am so sorry that Pringle had to leave you. I know your pain and heart ache. I lost my heart dog Termy six months ago and I still have a hard time knowing he is gone now. I know your connection was different than mine but the sadness and pain is the same. You did the greatest act of love we can offer our fur babies, letting them go and releasing them from a body that let them down. I am glad that you did get to share your life with such a wonderful and unselfish creature. You will see Pringle again and what a wonderful day that will be. God is taking good care of her for you and she is sitting by his side whole and healthy again. We all want our babies back but sadly we can only learn to live a new normal without them. Please come here and share your thoughts because we are all here to support one another.
Love and doggie hugs Termy's mom

I'm sorry to hear about your story with Pringle. It is evident there was an unbreakable bond between you both. I feel your pain. I just lost my beloved pet of 13 years two months ago, and I cry everyday and miss him dearly. As a result, I am on medication for severe anxiety and panic disorder, and I never had these issues before. The reason I am replying to you is this - have you thought about getting another best friend? No pet can ever replace another, but do you think the companionship will help ease your pain?
In the past few days I think I have come to the realization that the hole my dog left in me is far too great to fill with anything else. Even another dog. But, I wonder if another dog can leave a different lasting impression on me in the future. I'll never forget my first dog, but do you think there is solace and hope with another? Thanks for reading, and I wish you the best. These forums have certainly helped me know that I am not alone in my feelings about my first dog.
