Me and my husband in our 70s had to make the awful decision to have our darling baby put to sleep. We are lost and heartbroken, she came everywhere with us and she was never left on her own. Our house feels so empty there is no heart in it anymore x

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm facing the very same decision with my cat and my goat. I lost my dog Dickens 3 months ago and the pain and grief is still strong. This is a good site to come to when you need support. Everyone here understands, has been through it and empathises.
Take care of yourselves,
Skmk

Rosiemay29, I know that emptiness and lack of joy you’re feeling. It’s been 3 mos since we lost our dog suddenly at the age of 5 to a mystery illness and it’s been devastating. When you say there’s no heart in your home anymore, I think you explain it perfectly.

Hello, Rosiemay. First of all I am so sorry for your loss...what was your dog’s name? Boxers really are special, aren’t they? I do have some idea of the emptiness you and your husband are feeling as we too lost our darling boxer Shira. It’s been over seven years now, and obviously the grief gradually becomes easier to handle, but not a day goes by that I don’t think about her and wish she was still here with us. We have her ashes on a shelf in our living room, under her portrait, and in a way it seems as if she is still around. When we lost her I felt the need to do something to honour her memory, so I got the portrait painted from a photo, and I also wrote a poem for her. If you would like to see it, look up posts started by tivolworld. We also had to make the horrible decision for her, and some time afterwards I found a poem called “from friend to friend” on this message board which went some way towards helping me to come to terms with it....I only wish I’d found it before! I like to think we may get another dog some day, but it will never be another Shira as she really was unique, as I’m sure your boxer was too. Could you post a photo of her? I would love to see it.

Sending you all my sympathy and lots of hugs,

Susan (living in Malaga, Spain).

Thank you for your lovely words. We've had a special photo done in a frame and also two lockets with a photo and some of her fur in.
Everyday there are reminders, she did sleep a lot towards the end, and we were hoping she would go in her sleep, but sadly it wasn't to be and we made the awful decision to say goodbye. Afterwards so many emotions. Our Rosie was 9 and she was our 5th boxer.
Sorry to say I'm not technically minded and don't know how to send photos, but will give it a go. Many thanks again for your message xxx
