My miniature Schnauzer Daisy had been poorly for around 3 months and had deteriorated over the past week, I decided it wasn't fair as she was losing her balance & falling so took her to the vet last night.

It was dignified and heart breaking, the vet was wonderful and I know it was the right thing at the right time but my god it hurts.

She was a rescue dog who I adopted nearly 5 years ago & she was my little shadow, side kick & best mate, I really couldn't have asked for a better more devoted dog than Daisy & I feel numb, it's so weird without her falling me around the house & my house is so empty. I even went to fill her water bowl up last night.

RIP my little bird.

Oh god, it's horrendous isn't it. I wailed for 3 weeks straight with last dog. Took me 4 years to go to the end of the garden where he's buried. I'm afraid only time will help 😢

Ah, it’s so hard. Take care of yourself as well as you clearly did your Daisy, the first few weeks are really tough but it does start to get better.

Saving her from suffering was the last and greatest kindness you could have given her.

So glad you were able to give her years of love and make that difficult decision when the time came for her. Thinking of you. flowers

I am so very sorry. She looks such a sweet little girl and you really have done the kindest thing for her.

I made that decision for my cat and had him put to sleep on Monday evening.
It was heart-breaking and I didn't feel good about it, but I knew it was the right decision.
To be honest, I howled like a wounded animal afterwards. Pets always take a piece of your heart with them when they go.
My deepest sympathies to you. It's a very difficult decision, but if you know it's time, then it is - and absolutely right for your pet. thanks

We had to have our lovely border collie PTS on Monday and I feel like i can't cope since as im racked with guilt at essentially ending his life even though he had terminal cancer sad and was starting to suffer. We asked for a home visit so he was in his comfortable surroundings but witnessing it all has just been devastating for me. Im absolutely heartbroken and missing him so much, the house feels empty without him. Dont feel like I'll ever get over this. Ive lost DGP and DBIL and was obviously devastated about them but this feels different and worse and i dont understsnd why sad

My deepest sympathies OP. It’s a week today since I had my beautiful boy pts and it still hurts like hell and I find myself subconsciously talking to him all the time. It’s so hard.

So sorry OP and Littleladybug. It's the absolute down side of having a dog. At weekend it's a year since we lost our lovely choc lab, and I still miss her like crazy, even though we've three others. It does get less raw, given time. But they're such big parts of our lives and they leave us reeling. You'd have to be pretty cold not to be upset.

Thanks all & my deepest condolences to everyone who's going and has gone through the same thing.
I wept all the way to work this morning & have managed to distract myself up to now but I know it's going to get me tonight.
I stayed with DP last night but am going home alone tonight and I am dreading it.

I know it was the kindest thing to do but it is still so shit. I'm proud of the time we had together & that she knew absolute unconditional love for the last half of her life.

I've got beds in 3 rooms, poo bags, leads, collars, I even bought her a pram. It's going to be tough to clear it all away but I ordered 45 pics off free prints yesterday and I'm going to make a photo album of her.

flowers to everyone.

I wept & wept before I even got in tonight and then I wept some more.

I keep looking around for her and panic for a second wondering where she is then I remember.

I miss you Daisy Dog x
