Lost my old girl today
24

MajesticWhine · 11/09/2020 21:11

I lost my darling working cocker spaniel today. I can't speak so I'm posting here. She had a great life. She was nearly 14 and such a fantastic dog.
She had quite extensive cancer and we didn't want to let things to get worse. She had quite a decent day today so it was so hard to do. We are all devastated.

Oh op I’m so sorry. I lost my gorgeous WCS nearly a year ago and it is just so so hard.

You did such a good thing not letting her suffer, as awful as it was for you.

I hope you’re ok Flowers

It is awful isn't it. I lost my best friend a couple of weeks ago. She was by my side all day, every day and was the most loyal, amazing dog. I have slowly moved all of her things and put them away. I have got her ashes back and find that has helped. I'm not bursting into tears every give minutes but I miss her so much. I am sending a virtual hug 🤗 💐💐

Thanks.
I've been crying for a week just with the decision making and anticipation. And still in floods now.

Oh I'm so sorry, it's so devastating. I lost my best girl two years ago and it was just awful, cried for three days. It does get easier though. I hope you're okay, big hugs x

Oh I am so so very sorry OP. Better to have a pretty decent last day than an awful one though. You’ve done the right thing. But I’m so sorry you had to. Flowers

I lost my 11 year old Labrador on Monday Sad through osteoarthritis.I’m heartbroken ... there’s another similar thread on here I posted on too, it was great reading through the support messages.
I have 2 other dogs but last week my other dog lacerated his leg chasing a fox into bushes - required surgery which got infectedSadon Tuesday morning upon a check up it was advised he needed intensive care to not loose a leg.
So today we have one lonely dog and shell shocked owners ( he’s pulling through now at vet hospital so on the mend)
I feel for all of us that have lost our beloved pets , new routines to get used to and as I said on other thread I keep thinking I hear my old boy in the hallway where he liked to lay.
Today is first day I’ve actually had a conversation with someone, I couldn’t speak to anyone since Monday. Big hugs to you and your family xxxx

I’m so sorry OP and to all of you who have lost your dear pets. I lost my beloved cat last year and I have not got over it at all. He too had an awful cancer and was really suffering. He was only 9. I think of him every day. I really don’t know how people come to terms with the loss. I really feel for you and it must have been so incredibly difficult for you to make the decision today. You’ve been really brave and selfless.

My 16 year old terrier was put to sleep on Monday. I am devastated. She was a wonderful dog and I took her being around for granted. I will miss her so much.

I'm so sorry for your loss OP. It sounds like you made the call at the right time Flowers

I’m going to remember that.

So sorry OP. Can only imagine how you are feeling. Our gorgeous old boy is 13 and a half and I think we are facing this soon. Can’t think about it.

Your girl W as so loved, and what an amazing life she had with you.
