Hi everyone,
I knew this times was coming, but I wanted more time.  Teddy was my 12 year old yorkie, and there will never be another dog like him.  I got him when I was 30 and he went through everything with me.  Apartments, starting my own business, bad boyfriends.....good boyfriends.  He was so sweet and easygoing and I could not have been more fortunate with the kind of dog that I had.  

Teddy had an auto-immune disease that we dealt with for 4.5 years.  He nearly dies when he was first diagnosed, but with treatment and a great neurologist he lasted for an extra 4 and a half years.  This past year and a half he started having problems closer and closer together.  His calcium kept dropping and he was hospitalized several times.  Over Thanksgiving he stopped eating and threw up over and over.  We hospitalized him, but when I took him home I could feel hi dying in my arms.  I told him over and over how much I loved him.  I took him to his kind vet and we put him down together.  My heart hurts so much and I miss my best friend terribly.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Teddy. It’s like you been through so much with him just as I was with my Jakey Boy who I lost 2 months ago. It feels so strange and empty without them. It does easier with time for sure but I still think about my pup lots and cry every so often. Take care of yourself.

I am so so sorry for your loss. The most important thing is that Teddy knew how much you loved him. We lost our dog Grace about 4 years back. She was a collie and she had hit her old years. She ended up getting a tumor and as much as we tried to comfort her, she was in so much pain. She couldn't eat or stand up. We would lay on the floor with her of my parents bedroom. I will never forget the day we had to take her to get put down. I didn't even know it was happening until I got to work the day before. I broke down and had to go home. I begged my parents not to do it but keeping her in her condition was beyond inhumane. I laid on the floor with her for what felt like forever, sobbing on her beautiful soft coat. She always knew how to comfort me when she saw me cry. I went with my parents to take her there but I just couldn't say goodbye to her. I sat in the car until they brought her out and we took her home and buried her in our backyard.
To this day, my dad still has a hard time coping with her death. He is a very tough man, but the thought of her brings so much pain and tears to his eyes. He still calls her his best friend. We all miss her so much.
People who aren't animal lovers cannot understand our pain and our bond with animals. I lost my guinea pig on Sunday in such a tragic and unexpected way. He was so young and small but he was still my best friend. I haven't been to work. I haven't eaten. I haven't showered or changed out of my clothes. I can't go into my bedroom where he died. All I have done is cry nonstop.
You are not alone in your pain.

Teddy's mom,
We all share your pain and heart ache. There isn't a fur parent here on this site that hasn't went through the pain of losing one of our beloved companions. It hurts to the bottom of our hearts and always will. I can read how much you loved your dear Teddy. We are the lucky ones to have been loved by our fur kids. I had just over 16 years with my beloved Termy and had to let him go. Old age caught up with him. His heart was in it but his body was tired and I set him free on September 18, 2017. I still cry and grieve some but time does help. You and all of us here will never be the same. Be kind to yourself and cry when you feel like it. Teddy sounds so wonderful and I am so glad that he shared his life with you and made a journey of memories.
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom

Sweetpea, I am so sorry for your loss.  20 years is such a long time, you must be missing your baby terribly. 

Arosetta I am sending you a hug from far away, there is no easy or quick way through this heart shattering pain.  What I would not give for one more day:(

Thank you so much 4Jakeysmom.  That gives me hope.  I can't sleep and don't have an appetite.  I am so used to caring for my sweet boy as well, I don't know what to do with myself.

Cosesmom-  Thank you so much for taking the time to write me such a kind reply.  Today was such a difficult day for me, and my heart ached.  It felt physically painful and I just miss him so much.   I'm trying to take it day by day, but I can't believe how much it hurts.  Sending a big huh out to all of you.  TeddysmomBoston

Teddysmom,

How are you doing today? This is my 4th morning without my Greenbean and my devastation only increases. I have a chinchilla that I need to give love to but he hated Greenbean. I had my chinchilla for a few years before Greenbean and when we brought him home the chinchilla was not happy. I still will never know if he played a role in the events that occurred Sunday but I can't even look at him or go near him right now. I know how unfair that is but I'm just so lost.

Same thing with me arosettamson .i think I was numb at first.but by day 3 and 4 reality kicked in ! Day 9 today and I m bawling again. The change in my routine is drastic .
Your feelings toward your chinchilla I think are understandable. It will take time.be patient with yourself.

Teddy’s mom I so can relate.i cannot believe the level of pain either! Simply crushing.

My heart goes out to both of you

Love and hugs,
Peanuts mom

Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry that I have not posted in so many days.  Some days I think I am doing ok, hanging on and others I can't stop crying.  People kept telling me to "have a really great Christmas."  I don't think that they understand that isn't possible.  I have two other yorkies and I am appreciative to have their company, they just aren't and will never be my Teddy.  I miss his soft little face and the way he always managed to be looking at me....his adoring ways.  I'm sending everyone a big hug and feeling very thankful for the kindness here.
