    I know the feeling... two years ago I had to put my old girl down... We had her for 12 years she was a rotty who had been healthy most of her life but ended up with breast cancer when she was 10... we had it removed and thouhgt she was clear but in the last year of her life she had issues with her back legs not doing what they were supposed to be doing... then morning they just stopped working... I carried her to my car ( I have no idea how she was huge) and headed to the vet... She never came home with me... bloody hell two years ago and I still miss her like crazy. Funny how they put themselves into your life and take a huge piece of your heart with them huh? Or is that just me?

    I now have a gorgeous one year mastif x boy and a new addition to the family an orphaned three month old tabby kitten girl... they absolutely love eachother after getting them used to eachother.

    Sorry for rambling. xoxo

    Sorry for your loss. it hurts but we have to smile for the memories and the great life we gave them.
    AND YES, they do take a huge piece of your heart.... it's not just you.

    I remember saying to a guy at work when i have to put my dog down, I think of piece of me will die with him. He just looked at me. Some people get it, some think we need to get a life. But I have a great life...owning a pet. It's that unconditional love.

    that's so sad to hear, i am sorry for your loss. I can never a put a pet down. A friend of mine even ask me to do the favor for him because he can't do it to his own, I cant. Just so sad for me even just the idea of putting a pet down. I think if there is no really good reason for that then it should not be done, unless your pet is really in great pain.

    You're there - as much as it hurts and hurts - for them, to be with them when they cross to the Rainbow Bridge. Bring comfort to you and them. I hated going through it but I had to be there, he was always there for me, I had to be there for him in his final moments. His little head bows down... f*ck I hated seeing that and still brings a tear when I think about it.
    It just sucks to put a pet down.

    I thinks it's the greatest respect you can give to your pets. In that one moment when they die they die knowing they were loved. They feel it as you hold them in your arms. It is really hard to do but I like to think it made their scariest moment a little less scary for them.


    I like this poem... I hope it helps

    A Dog's Prayer.

    If it should be that I grow weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep
    Then you must do what must be done,
    For this last battle cannot be won.
    You will be sad, I understand;
    Don't let your grief then stay your hand
    For this day more than all the rest
    Your love for me must stand the test
    We've had so many happy years
    What is to come can hold no fears,
    You'd not want me to suffer so,
    The time has come please let me go.
    Take me where my need they'll tend
    And please stay with me until the end,
    Hold me firm and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see.
    I know in time that you will see,
    The kindness that you did for me
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    From pain and suffering I've been saved.
    Please do not grieve, it must be you
    Who has this painful thing to do,
    We've been so close, we two, these years,
    Don't let your heart hold back its tears.


    I, too am sorry for your loss xoxo
