Just 3 days ago I lost my 2 year old dog Holden suddenly. I went for my morning workout and got a call at 730am from my wife that Holden collapsed.
I'll spare the details but I am overcome with grief and not sure what to do.

Oh my, I so very sorry. I know you must be devastated and heart broken. You need to grieve and cry when you feel like it. There is no magic to help you through this as all of us here know. Please come here and pour your heart out to us. Here you will find love and compassion and most of all understanding. I know in Holden's life he made many many memories with you. I'm sorry your journey was cut so short. I feel your pain and wish you peace at this very difficult time.

I have experienced something very similar to you, because my dog was running around playing in the backyard and she out of nowhere collapsed and was gone instantly. The noise of the thud on my patio haunts me. The way she looked haunts me. The way she expired without any time whatsoever to be able to get her to a vet or help her haunts me. I am haunted daily by this, and I am in shock and deeply grieved. It is hard for me to even perform my daily tasks. I cannot wrap my head around what happened. My husband wasn't home and my daugher called him and told him our dog collapsed and was dead. I cannot figure out how to post my own thread or my own story. So either this forum is not allowing me to , because I cannot even find where to start one. I can only reply on posts. I am beyond devasted and I feel your pain, because of the suddeness and shock of it all. My mind is still not even able to process that my very active, beautiful Jada, is gone. When you are ready I would like to hear your details. I didn't know this was even possible to happen to an otherwise healthy dog, until it happened to mine. Now I am finding out by searching this topic that this happens often, with no explanation. My heart hurts.

I lost my 11 month old baby 2 days ago to parvo. I am in peices. Eventually turned to the internet. I'm so sorry for your loss, the thing is that words don't come close. Maybe empathy might? My guilt is massive because I could have avoided it. Just know you gave that animal the best. Lots of love your way, stranger on the internet. Xx
