I can't believe she is gone. Why did it happen so fast?  I miss here a lot and I really can't deal with it.  She past away in front of me Monday morning and I felt so useless because I couldn't do anything to save her. I tried to do everything I could to keep her calm and relaxed talking to her and touching her and telling her that I love her.  I witnessed my best friend, my companion, my sense of security pass right before my eyes I was devastated I was scared I want to run away but I stayed with her until she took her final breath.  She was always there for me as I was for her. I know its not easy to lose a pet. I've lost a few of them over the years and it was hard to deal with. But for some reason she was the hardest to lose. I try to think of all the fun and crazy things we did over the last 10 years but then I break down and cry knowing that those fun and crazy times will never happen with her again until I meet her at the Rainbow Bridge.  I hope one day we can get another Black Lab not to replace or forget about Lacy that will never happen. She was a great Dog that can never be forgotten or replaced. I want to write more but I just can't right now.  Lacy I love you and I'm sorry I couldn't do more for you.

I know it's hard to lose a Fur Baby and I am so sorry for your lose. I am so glad you came here for support during this time. I would love to here any stories you might want to share with us someday. For now hold tight to all the love you shared with her. In time it will get better. Please don't blame yourself for her passing. It sounds as if you weren't given a lot of time. She passed at home with the ones who loved her, exactly where she wanted to be. You were strong for when you needed to be, if you wouldn't have stayed by her side you would have felt awful later. You did the right thing, she was your girl. I still cry and talk to Termy every night and it's been almost three months. The pain in my heart seems like it was just yesterday but I am getting better. When your ready for another Fur Baby, don't ever think your being disloyal. Tha's what our Fur Babies would want, for us to share what they had with another. Cry when you feel like it but try to remember her too and smile even if it is through tears.
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom

It sounds like she was your 'heart dog'- your canine soul mate. There's a book I read about it where the woman says she has had lots of dogs in her life but one was her soul mate. She lived all the others and was devastated by their passing but for some reason this one hit her harder. She believes you can have more than one heart dog. My boy was my heart dog, I've only ever had him, but I grew up with him, we grew together, we were so attached to one another. To me, he'll always be special. It's been a few weeks and I miss him awfully. I'm so sorry you're going through this too. It sounds like it was a sudden loss for you, mines was fine one day and not the next. We all wish we could have done more, but honestly It shows how much we loved them.

It still hurts very bad knowing she is gone.  I've been doing a lot of reading and a lot of crying.  It does seem like she was my "heart dog".  I still remember when we first got her we traveled over an hour in a snow storm to get her.  When her then owners came with her they got out of their vehicle gave us all of her food, a crate and her toys then brought her out and her tail was wagging like crazy pulling on the leash wanting to greet us so bad. They handed the leash to my wife and said her she is thank you good bye we were all amazed that they just left and not a word was said to Lacy.  We stopped a few times on the way home to see if she needed to do her business and she would be sniffing all over the place with her tail wagging the whole time.  One of the places we stopped me and my son went to use the rest room and when we came out she went crazy when she saw us.  I still wish I could've done more for her and all the other fur babies we've had in our life.  I sit here typing this wishing she was laying here next to me so I could reach down and pet her and it hurts so bad knowing she's not there.  It bothers me a lot trying to figure out what exactly went wrong with her she was good one day then for some reason she just went down hill. I keep telling myself she's in a great place now without pain and suffering looking down at us constantly.

I know it's so hard trying to get used to them being gone. My boy was my shadow and it's heartbreaking every time I 'forget' for even a second and remember he's not there. It sounds like she was very lucky to have you, her previous owners didn't sound very loving. My dogs stomach was full of blood, they believe it was a hemangiosarcoma. That could be a possibility for you. All of the stories I've read of them are similar. Fine one day, gone the next or rapid declines. Even my vet had to put his dog down 2 weeks before ours because of one. A lot of the time there are no signs. I hope you find a way to heal somewhat.

A little over a month since we lost Lacy and Im still crying.  We did get another dog about 2 weeks ago or so. He is a year old Male Lab Mix named Yankee we kept his name cause he does respond to it very well. We got him from a rescue he was an owner surrender. Don't know the whole story about him but I think he is younger than a year old he is still into the biting stage when I play with him. Trying to break him of that habit and a few others he has.  I love him a ton and sometimes I forget and call him Lacy lol. Thank you to everyone who replied to my ad it means a lot to me.

So sorry for your loss.  I lost my dog Wednesday and I, too, keep reliving our fun, crazy moments together, and it hurts very much to know that chapter of my life is now over.  I miss their goofy faces and nutty personalities, and how they were always by my side ready for whatever was next.  I see us in the woods, hopping over logs, feeling the sun on our faces.  It makes me cry.
