Very grateful for this site today and hope that I can br thoughtful during your loss and mine.

My story today. Yeasterday I was reading and my border collie Taylor wanted to play so before our walk I let her out to watch squirls etc. she pawed at door like always and when I went to the sliding glass door she was on the ground. We have been seizure free for quite some time. Lifted her up and she was not breathing I did CPR but did not work. She was 9 yrs old. Agilty champion, earned her good citizen title. I say this not to brag but had alot of time with Taylor. Im mot a big fan of grief. I have lost pets before but the pain was not as harsh as this. In 2006 i lost my fishin buddy to a heart attack and Lab Jake in the same month. Whew so I know I wil get past this. Last time I went to a counselor because I thought I was in deep depression. It was ruled out as grief so will be going back. This time I will try a grief group and if I start to lose it too much I will go to a counselor. The key to the anguish for me is to talk and write it out, exercise and think about my next puppy. I thought about adopting a senior dog and know the risks. Taylor did not get to experience senior years. Im open to conversations and questions thoughts. : )

That sounds awful, finding her dead unexpectedly like that. :(

I'm interested to hear more about Taylor, what made her so special to you.  Was Jake (or any previous dog) also trained for agility?

Thank you for sharing this with us. I hope it makes you feel better knowing that others understand and wish you well.

No one is prepared for the loss of their pet. Ever.
