My beloved dog was put to sleep this morning. The past 14 hours have been consumed by tears and absolute devastation, I don’t know how I’m going to be without him.
The vet took him out for sedation first and when he came back in he had a short period of being awake where I fed him some treats and he sat down on my lap to be cuddled; something I’m so grateful for as I haven’t been able to properly cuddle him in what seems like forever. He then lost consciousness and was put on the table for the final injection. We then all kissed him and told him how much we loved him and he went.
My baby was bought for me by my parents after I experienced a very traumatic incident, he helped make me feel safe and happy and better again and we spent so much time together every single day. He helped me recover and I love him so much.
How do I get through this, I can’t bare being at home without him next to me or at me feet. This is horrific 😢.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I don't really have any words to try to heal your pain as they are so very similar to my own. Maybe you can find some comfort in that- you are not alone. There are others out there that feel how you are feeling. I put my angel Izzy to sleep 90 days ago and I still cry by her grave every night. It is hard. Try to think of the blessing of the days that you had each other and how happy you made him. He loved you as much, if not more, than you love him. You will be together again someday. Peace to you.

Ah703, I am so very sorry. I lost my Dooley dog one month ago today. I still can't quite believe that he is not here any more. He was with us for almost 15 years and we had lived in four different countries together. I miss him so much, think of him all the time and cry every day. Although, it probably doesn't feel this way right now, you will get through this. Right now your feelings are raw and intense. I know for me, I felt like I was going a bit crazy and was sick to my stomach. And while I am still in the height of grieving, I feel like I can at least breath again. Not sure if that makes sense. Reading some of the posts here, has helped. Lighting a candle in front of his picture, has helped me feel like I am still connected to him. Just remember, everyone grieves differently, and the length of time it take varies for everyone. And while the pain of losing a part of your family does not go away, it changes and it gets easier to cope with it. Take your time and know that there are a lot of people here who understand what you are going through.
Sending you hugs, Fi
