She was 15, had multiple issues, and I could see something had changed in her over the last few days, and it was the right thing for her.
The vet came to car and did it, so I was able to hold her, which after some horror stories over Covid, I am so grateful for.

It was my Mum's funeral on Monday.

Just wallowing in grief at the moment, it's just so shit.

I'm so sorry to hear this op. We lost our beloved rescue greyhound last year and the age of 15. It's very hard, on top of an already awful week for you. As pp have said, I hope you take some time to be kind to yourself and think of the many happy years you gave your beautiful ddog. thanks

Oh BookWitch What a traumatic time. Im am so sorry you having to go through it flowers

Oh my - 15 is a great age for a dog. You must have looked after her really well and given her a great life. Sounds like you also gave her a good and peaceful ending. I'm still haunted by my failure last year to acknowledge the end had arrived for my 12 year old lab. I subjected her to a horribly stressful few days in vet hospital which she could have done without.

Such a hard time for you. I'm so sorry for your double loss thanksthanksthanksthanks

So sorry for your losses, what a beautiful girl she was and you were so lucky to have each other. I feel for you.

Take it one day at a time and focus on the basics. It seems unbelievable how much you can cry, but it does stop.

ManUMum55 Sun 30-Aug-20 12:12:09

So sorry OP. Losing two important people and dogs in your life is tough anytime but even worse when they are close together and in lockdown.

So sorry OP, what a terrible week flowers

RaspberryToupee Sun 30-Aug-20 12:33:56

What a lovely photo, clearly a very happy dog. You obviously gave her a wonderful life.

Sorry you’re having such a terrible time flowers

muckandnettles Sun 30-Aug-20 19:37:49

So sorry for your two losses - such a sad week for you. Your lovely dog looks so happy in the photo so I hope you can remember her like that. I always think it's a privilege to see a dog to that age with so much love to the end.

MaureenSowerbutts Sun 30-Aug-20 19:48:38

So sorry to hear this, what an awful week you have had. Ddog is beautiful and looks so happy in that photo. I am so glad you could be with her.

Patbutcherismyhero Sun 30-Aug-20 19:51:20

What a lovely photo of a happy, beautiful dog. She must have had a very joyful life with you. I hope you can find some comfort in the fact that your dog and mum are together watching over you. I'm so sorry and I hope time eases your pain thanks

Soshelpplease Sun 30-Aug-20 19:52:40

So, so sorry you’re going through this @BookWitch.

Been there and there’s no pain like it, if I could take the pain away from you, I would.

What a shitty week for you, I'm so sorry.
Great photo, which I'm sure somewhere in the not too distant future will make you smile more than cry.
Unmumsnetty hugs to you BookWitch x
