My sweet boy Berkeley was PTS this morning. He was just shy of his 16th birthday and unwell due to a number of issues... back leg weakness, dementia and tongue cancer. I just wanted some virtual hugs really as I am struggling with this and miss the little fella so dreadfully already. I could hardly let go of him today to bury him. I feel totally at a loss without him and my heart is aching dreadfully.

I'm so sorry limejellyhead, sending you a huge virtual hug and tons of sympathy. Tell more about Berkeley if you feel able. Sounds like he was very much loved.

I'm sorry, it's horrible isn't it? We had to lose our old boy just over a year ago. Big hugs.

What sort of dog was he? He was a good age. Our old boy had just turned eleven.

flowers it's awful isn't it? 16 years is a hell of a long time to spend with someone. Take care of yourself x

I'm so sorry, my dear old 15 year old boy had to be pts 7 years ago and while I love our current dogs dearly I still miss him.
Old dogs are a blessing and a curse because they break your hearts!

Huge hugs sent to you, so sorry for the loss of your precious Berkeley, it's heartbreaking isnt it? I lost my lovely old boy three years ago and still miss him terribly but have such happy memories of our time with him.

My heart is broken. Thank you all for posting. It helps me feel a little less alone and also I can talk to you about my wonderful boy.

He was the funniest little thing, with a huge and brave soul. He made me laugh every day. He was my friend and constant companion. A light went out in my life yesterday.

Feel for you at this time. XX

He loved walking anywhere and everywhere but in the little forest area was his favourite because there were trees and lots of interesting things to sniff but also a lovely green grassy area too and we used to race each other.

LimeJellyHead Fri 08-Jan-16 14:18:07

Here we are at his fave walkies place, just the other week.

I'm so sorry to hear that, at least he's not in pain any longer poor boy and you can take some comfort knowing you gave him a good life where he was loved.
