Lost our beloved girl today

(99 Posts)

We had her put to sleep this evening. We think she had a brain tumour, she had two very distressing episodes today, completely out of the blue. She already had arthritis and was quite wobbly from a couple of attacks of vestibular syndrome last summer, and this felt like one thing too many for her to deal with. I hope we did the right thing. I couldn't bear to think of her being distressed or in pain again if she had another episode, especially if we were not in the house at the time.

I loved her more than anything. We couldn't have asked for a better dog to share our lives for the last thirteen and a half years. I never thought when I woke up this morning that we would be putting our darling girl to sleep today.

I'm so sorry - she sounds like she was very much loved

I'm so sorry flowers. Be gentle to yourself.

LitterBuggerOff Fri 03-Feb-17 12:16:46

Please, please don't torture yourself wondering whether you did the right thing.

You did the right thing

You let her go before she knew any more suffering. To let our beloved ones go before they suffer more is the single most selfless act of love we can ever give our dogs.

I'm so sorry for your loss flowers

So sorry sad
You know you've done the right thing, even if it was the hardest thing.

Thanks for your kind words. Things have got even worse today. Our other dog has been admitted to the vet. He has what seem to be shock symptoms. I can't believe this is happening. Am trying to get hold of DH to tell him to come home. The vet said she was "worried".

Keeping everything crossed here for your other dog

I had to do this 4 weeks ago. So heart-breaking.

I really do know exactly what you're going through OP. I never thought it would hurt so much to lose my girl. I cried at the postman yesterday because I opened the door to him and normally dog would come barking like mad and then be very friendly. Postie was waiting for her because he liked her and knew she wouldn't hurt him. Then I had to tell him why she wasn't there sad sad sad

You know you did the right thing. flowers

flowers for you and hope your other dog is ok.

UnbornMortificado Fri 03-Feb-17 17:56:49

Lord I'm so sorry. I'll cross everything for your other DDog flowers

So so sorry xx

lost mine 4 weeks ago still crying and not sleeping

I am thinking of you at this time even though you know you have to, it is little comfort when your grief is so raw. Please let us know about your other darling dog keeping everything crossed for him.

So sorry to hear this and praying your other dog is ok flowers

LordRothermereBlackshirtCunt Fri 03-Feb-17 18:26:31

I'm sorry that so manny of you have been through this recently. I am taking comfort in the fact that it was very sudden. She was still going for walks every day and wolfing down her dinner (even three hours before she was pts). At least there wasn't a protracted decline and the worry of when to make the call.

The vet has rung to say our other dog has tested positive for Hepatitis, though they can't tell what kind. And they are going to do a scan shortly for pancreatitis (in case that's what's pressing on the liver, I think she said). Ddog is going to be in the hospital for several days, apparently. God, this is shit.

LaGattaNera Fri 03-Feb-17 18:31:22

I am sorry to hear this what a terrible time for you and your family. Hoping for a positive outcome, just when you need your remaining dog the most to be with you. We do know how you feel. Can you visit over the weekend? Can you pour yourself a drink?

Londonjam Fri 03-Feb-17 18:45:25

So sorry OP this is heartbreaking ☹️ I hope your other dog is okay , please take care 🌺

LordRothermereBlackshirtCunt Fri 03-Feb-17 18:50:46

Thank, yes we really need our boy right now. He is the brown dog, the black dog is our departed girl. We're waiting for the vet to ring us about the pancreas scan. Hopefully we'll be allowed to see him over the weekend.

So sorry sad 💐

LaGattaNera Fri 03-Feb-17 18:54:18

Thinking of you and keep us updated lots of love to you and darling doggie

Poppypooch Fri 03-Feb-17 19:20:36

I'm so sorry op, I know what a difficult time this is flowers and I have everything crossed for your wee boy. Be kind to yourself brew

UnbornMortificado Fri 03-Feb-17 19:42:16

They are beautiful, hope your boys out soon.

HyacinthsBucket Fri 03-Feb-17 19:55:19

What beautiful dogs - cockers I assume? I have a black one, he's the biggest pain in the arse imaginable with his ability to find fox poo on a daily basis yet I love him with every bone in my body. He's my best friend, always by my side and better company than DH most of the time!! We lost our darling lab last January, she was 13 and although I knew her time had come and she was in pain, making that phone call to the vet nearly broke me. Her ashes are in the kitchen, where she spent most of her day looking for treasure on the floor!! I hope your boy is soon on the mend and home where he belongs. What an awful awful day and you must be bereft without them both. Sending hugs.

Aww, so sorry to hear this. Our old boy was a black working cocker. flowers
