Today I lost two family members and I feel as though my soul is gone. I found this group and I feel I need support please no judgement. My 8yr old Chomper has been by my side since she was a 3 month old puppy. She was my soulmate. 2 weeks ago she attacked my mom's dog resulting in my mom's dog losing a leg. Well today she killed our smallest dog. I had to put her down. My main reason being I have a toddler. This aggression has come from nowhere and I never thought she would act like this. Still she was my best friend and I feel as if I betrayed her. I keep thinking what did I do to deserve this? How can I live with this guilt and grieve?

Dearest Chomer's mom,
My heart goes out to you. How very devastated you must be feeling. I would never judge you as with all of us here. There are reasons in this world that things happen and we can't control or explain. I can't imagine what you are going through. To lose one is life changing but to lose two has to be beyond comprehension. I understand you heart ache and pain. No matter the reason we need to let them go, it just tears your heart out. There could be underlying medical reasons that Chomper was suffering from that caused her to act out. You put her at peace. There are no more demons haunting her anymore. You did what you needed to and Chompers understands. She doesn't blame you, only loves you more for giving her peace. Be gentle with yourself and grieve. I am sure that the eight years you shared there were many great memories that you made together. Remember the journey of those eight years. Chompers is at peace, she doesn't suffer anymore and is waiting at the Bridge for you, healed and healthy.
Sending you love and understanding
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom

Thank you so much for your reply and kind words. It helps to hear. ❤️ I have never lost a pet like this and my two favorite animals gone in one day. I feel a sense of hopelessness. Looking forward to the rain bridge.

OMG how horrible for you.  I'm so sorry for your pain.  I found this forum today, I have been grieving since Monday.  I had to have my beloved ferret put down and then my dog killed my kitten right in front of me.  I feel so guilty and devastated.  I can't stop thinking about how I could have done something different.  Last year my older dog had to be put down because he became ill and nothing could be done.  My big guy injured him a couple of times (not severely) over dog toys so I got rid of all the toys, the dogs were never alone.  I thought I could manage having the kitten in the same home and he seemed fine with it - I never left them alone - always right there but my nightmare began because he killed my sweet little kitty.  Fortunately, I have no small children in the home but I'm struggling to forgive myself and forgive my dog.  My home will have to remain a single pet home.  

Again, I am so sorry for what you are going through.
