Hi, it's hard to believe it's been 3 months since my Maude had to be euthanized. I've been having more trouble lately wishing she could be here and healthy. Life is worse without her. I probably did something wrong handling her illness and euthanasia. She was great company and we were a great pair. I still love her.

I feel you. I am there with you. It's been 9 months for me and it's getting more bearable. I still miss my sweet boy and cry but I've been working hard to have good memories and let go of the negative ones. It isn't easy, it's an up hill battle. You mustn't blame yourself. You did what you thought best at the time and Maude wouldn't want you to blame yourself. She knew she was loved and had a very grand journey with you. Remember the whole picture not just the last chapter. Maude would want you to smile, now and again. That's the lessen they teach us while they are here with us. That is why they pack all the love they can into their short lives, hoping it will last us our life time. It (the pain) will lessen in time. Make memorials, write Maude letters etc. Anything that will help you cope. Grieve and cry all you need to. Remember Maude is always with you, in spirit. She has never left you.
Peace and comfort Love and doggie hugs Termy's mom

I, too, am there. It's only been two days since I lost my Cassie to cancer and I don't know how I'm going to survive. The pain is so bad. I cry most of the day and night. I'm sure you did what was best for Maude and I'm sure she loved you with her whole heart.
Honestly, I can't think of anything in my life that has hurt this bad. Maybe because the love was so strong and we were together so much? I also believe that Maude is with you, in spirit. I know that Cassie is with me. I wish just knowing that could make things better, but I guess it takes time. Don't be hard on yourself about anything, you know deep down in your heart that you did what you had to, like it or not. For that, Maude is so grateful to you and loves you even more! Love never dies. May you and Termy's mom find peace and comfort and always remember the joy and love your babies brought to you Cassie's Mom
