Came down this morning to find our darling staffy dead .
She has been unsettled for about a week and so we knew she didn't have much longer .
We were both downstairs cuddling her at 2 this morning as she was uncomfortable and not breathing well sad
She was 16 so a very good age .
My comfort is she will get to meet again our very best boy staffy who died last may and was her play mate through life .
Rip my little girl , heaven has a very special place for an extra special girl .

Thank you so much .
Yes a very much loved dog .
But a relief that we didn't have to put her to sleep .
I knew it wouldn't have been long before I had to ring vet and ask him to come out , and the waiting for the vets car is just so terrible , you feel like you are killing them sad
I am relieved her body gave up as her mind went about a year ago , she got lost in the house and garden .
But while she was still eating and drinking I couldn't give up on her .
Just a bit shocked to have found her dead , mind you she did look peaceful smile

So sorry for you furbaby. Glad she went peacefully at home though. Hope my boy ends his days like that. smile

Thank you so much everyone . Your kind messages mean so much .
moose pup is fine thank you , he sniffed her body this morning but seemed calm about it .
Hoping him being only dog may help him as when old girl was wandering lost most evenings he wouldn't settle as he was wondering what she was doing .
Everytime she coughed he would get up to check on her .Bless him .
thanks to all you kind people

Glad he's ok.

My vet suggested we brought our boy into see Oldgirl when she passed. She explained that, in her experience, it really helps them to understand and handle it. Unfortunately we didn't have him with us and bitterly regret it now, as of course he developed separation anxiety without her there.

Be kind to yourself and comforted by the fact she was able to choose her time and left when she was ready, safe in the knowledge of how much she was loved. flowers

Sorry for your loss furbaby .... Those who have never owned a dog will never understand the pain of losing them .... They are part of our family. I'm sure your girl gave you enough memories to last forever. Big hugs x
