My name is Jessica and my dearest 12 year old yorkie passed this morning. His name was Prince Charming and his nick name was Buddy (my dad gave him that name). I had him since he was 8 weeks old. He was probably the most spoiled dog ever. He loved me more than he loved himself. He didn’t have any underlying serious health issues, besides GERD and allergies. He wasn’t on any medications. Last night he appeared to be pretty normal. He had been sneezing and drooling for about two days, so I just chunked it up as kennel cough. Around 5am, he was trying to hide under my chest draw and I picked him up and put him in the bed. He was making this loud thumping noise as he breathe. I researched a little about the noise and ended up falling asleep. Didn’t realize he had gotten out the bed. My husband woke me up around 8:30am saying Buddy wasn’t moving. I hopped out of bed and he was lying on the floor on his stomach. He was cold and stiff. His eyes and mouth was open. I just held him and rocked for about 2 hrs. Budddy was my pride and joy. My husband and I don’t have any children. Buddy was our only animal. We have cried our eyes out. My family is devastated because he was like the baby of the family even though he was up in age. He only weighed 5lbs. I can’t get his lifeless body out of my head. I knew one day this time would come, but I could never be prepared. He was at the door almost EVERYTIME I would come home. I always would say, how did you know I was about to walk inside. He never let many people hold him at all. He was just that spoiled behind my husband and I. He took over the bed. He would be in bed before us. In the center. This is so hard. The thought of him dying alone on the floor will never go away. I always held him like a baby. He had so much personality. He just didn’t appear senior at all. Everybody always assumed he was a baby because of his size. I’m lying in bed now missing him. He would normally he between my husband and I or snuggled under one of us.

I am feeling much the same way. My little almost fifteen year old girl passed away 7-1-20. The grief I am feeling is profound. Please know you are not alone in your feelings. Evening and night time is the worst for me. If anyone has coping strategies to share I would be grateful. This feels like the hardest thing I have ever been through in my life. She was always by my side morning noon and night.

I had to take my 13 year old Ruby, mini english cream dachshund to the Bridge yesterday. I held her tight right till the end. I know your pain oh so well. It is horrible. I loved her and she, me to the exclusion of anyone but my wife. She was my soul. We know it will get less painful with time, but today that doesn’t seem possible.

I just cry EVERYTIME I think about my buddy. This is tough. I just cry throughout the day. I don’t want to talk with anyone. My husband is trying to be so strong for the both of us and he’s hurting himself.

So sorry. Normally I will have all the words to say, but I’m torn. I’m hurting. I know our pets loved us more than they loved themselves.
