I just lost my dog Jackie on June 3rd, putting her down was the hardest thing that I've ever had to do. It's only been two days and Im a complete mess. Ive cried myself to sleep and think about her all the time. I only had her for five months and those were the best five months of my life.

I am so sorry about the loss of your Jackie.

It is so devastating to lose a precious one. I lost my beautiful cat Cheeseburger on May 4th 2008. I miss him so much.

This is a wonderful site where you can connect with people who care and understand - we are all going through the same heartbreak.

Our cherished friends may be gone physically, but they are forever in our hearts.

My thoughts are with you. I am sure Jackie knows how much you love her.

We all share and know your pain. We had to make the same dreadful decision with our Dally Jesse on May 28th - no matter what the circumstances, it's the same, raw grief. I'm sure you made the right decision by your baby - and they know that. We make responsible choices because it's the last selfless act of love we can offer our pets. Sure, it hurts us afterwards and does for a long time, but stay safe in the knowledge that it was the right decision for your darling.

We support you and we are there for you.

I'm so sorry about your loss.  My little dog Kato died in his sleep on Monday, June 3.  I too am a complete mess.  This board has really helped me though.  Its so nice to know you are not alone, and that others understand exactly what you are feeling.  Its only been 4 days, yet I feel like I can't keep crying to my friends about my baby Kato.  Thats why this board is so great.  Feel free to vent, everyone is caring, supportive and understanding here.  Take care of yourself.

Oh, Sarah, I am so sorry you had to say farewell to your baby, Jackie.  Was she young or did you adopt an older pup?  My heart is breaking for you.  Tell us more about Jackie when you feel up to it.  We will be here for you.

Jackie was a wonderful dog. She taught our family how to love, be caring and compassionate. Jackie is what animal shelters call a “Dixie Dog”, meaning that she was taken from the South and brought up here. We adopted her on January 13th, 2008, and it was the best thing that we have ever done. Jackie helped me through a really hard time two days later, when my friend was killed in a car accident. I feel like God had my family adopt this dog for a reason and every day of my life I will continue to thank God for putting her in my life. Jackie suffered from a rare disease in her esophagus, where at the end of her esophagus to would balloon out and the remaining food that didn’t make it into her stomach would sit there and she would eventually cough it back up. As the months went on it started to get worse and finally we had to put her to sleep on Tuesday June 3rd. It was the hardest thing that we, as a family, have ever had to do. We loved Jackie with all of our heart and we all thank God for the short but fun filled five months that we got to all be together. When Jackie came to us she had no idea how to be a dog, she didn’t know how to play catch with a ball, play with a Frisbee, or even sit, but we, as a family, taught her everything she needed to know, and she taught us so much.
That's what I wrote and put in the 2008 Tribute Page, but writing a tribute could never come close to how much Jackie meant to me. She was the best thing that came into my life, and everyday that I wasn't at home, whether I was at school, or my dads because of work tears me apart. Those were precious days that I missed in her short life with us and I can't forgive myself for that. The I went home to put Jackie down was the first time I had seen her in probably two or three weeks and the guilt I have is imense, and I don't know if the guilt will ever leave me.
