I had to make a decision with my 12 Jack Russel Boss in January. Two years ago I almost l almost lost him & he was diagnosed with addisons and had daily steroids and every three weeks an injection. He did really well then one night took a turn and his pancreas shut down. It was traumatic, painful and a piece of me died with him. I am still grieving and have really tried to get over it but will never I am sure almost five months later. I have so much guilt wondering if I made the best choice and it’s really horrible to feel this guilt. I shut down and cried for over two weeks after. I pour everything into my little Bella now and hope with time it will he better.

Dear Conelson,
I hear you. I am still walking in the same shoes as you are. My loss was 8 months ago and I feel exactly the same as you. I decided to let Termy go last September and still play with the guilt and heart ache. I too wonder if I did enough and if I made the right choice. I am not sure if or when we may be able to let go of the guilt. The pain and heart ache will always be with us. I am truly trying to let go of the guilt so that I can honor Termy's memory and the journey we shared together. I am sure that Termy and Boss wouldn't want us to feel the amount of guilt that we feel right now. They know we made our choice based out of love to our babies. A piece of me died with Termy on that dreadful Monday morning too just as it did with you. Termy was just over 16. Yes a long life but never long enough. I know if we could we would always want them by our side forever. I know that both of them are at the Bridge waiting for us to join them one day. Cry as often as you need to and try to remember the journey you shared with Boss.
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom
