I want to express my condolences to all of you who have lost your beloved fur babies. I find great strength in these forums. Even though the circumstances for all of us. I am grateful for finding a place to express my grief and sadness during the most hardest days of my life.
I lost my best friend Quentin suddenly 2 days ago. I’m having the most difficult time dealing with it. I don’t know how to deal with it. This pain in my heart is unbearable to say the least and the grief is sickening at times. I can’t stop crying. When I finally give my eyes a rest, I am hit with the quietness that I am now left with since he’s been gone.
2 days ago he was fine, he was alert, energetic, talkative, hungry, loving. It was a regular day, not at all different in any way. So me and my husband went to lay down to take a nap. We woke up about 2 hours later and I saw him on our bed. Nothing abnormal since he always went to bed with us. I thought at the time he was asleep. My husband went to rub his belly to wake him up and I saw the most terrified look on his face. He tried waking him again but Quentin didn’t move, his mouth open with his tongue slightly sticking out......I immediately started crying, asking my husband if he was joking over and over. As soon as my husband started crying I knew this was really happening. How could this have happened?!?! He was fine just 2 hours before this!!! We called the vet and wrapped him in a blanket and headed to the vet. We got there and made the final arrangements for his cremation. Still wondering what happened. We got no clear answers from the vet, so I’m left with nothing but questions that will probably never be answered. My mom said he probably had a heart attack in his sleep and probably didn’t feel anything. I keep going over that day in my mind to see if maybe I missed something, but I can’t think of anything.
We also lost his younger brother Cleo 8 months ago. The two of them were inseparable. I know Quentin missed Cleo a lot.
I feel like this sadness will never go away, that my heart will always hurt 💔 He was my life, my little man.
How can I get through this?!?!?

I am sorry for your loss! I hope you feel better by having been on his side at his last moment. There are things in life that can not be explained and we just have to deal with the best ways we can. I know how much you love him and I hope this love would help you to ease the pain you have at this very moment. He is with his brother now, they had have a good earth lives by having you as his loving family and not all fur babies had have this opportunity. I know you are a loving person as you had have given your thoughts about others losses over your own...I pray the love in your heart will help you go through this...in the mean time, let your heart feels what it suppose to, our love for our fur babies is so big that our hearts find it hard to accept the fact when they are gone. My prayers are with you during this difficult time, please remember him a a smile as he was loved! Hugs, BedoTropiMom

I am so sorry for your loss.
I have never felt so much pain and hurt since we decided to put my baby to sleep due to his injuries in Monday. I have cried so hard.

I am feeling your pain too right now, I lost my dog around the same time as you and feel so shocked, all I can say is it has helped to write down my feelings in here and share them with people who care and have gone through the same thing
You loved your little baby and things are hard right now but I hope you find some comfort that your Quentin is at peace
