Cherokee 4/1/01-2/27/09



This is tearing me up. My Cherokee has been so sick for the past year. For the past few months, he has been is so much pain. He wasn't comfortable standing or laying down. When standing, he would just tremble. I finally made the decision to bring him to the vet yesterday and end his pain.

I feel terrible even though everyone keeps telling me it was the best thing I could do.

This board has helped me in the past and I thought maybe I could post here for some ideas on getting through this.

Re: Cherokee 4/1/01-2/27/09

I'm sorry that your boy had such a rough last year. It is always hard for me and it is harder when I haven't got a clear answer. It sounds like that was what you were working with - no clear answer. Cherokee was very fortunate to chose a home that cared so dearly for him.

While I have never forgotten the pain of a dog of mine dying, I have never forgotten the joy each of them brought me either. Regardless of how much pain I have when they die, it has always been far outweighed by the joy they have brought me through out their too short lives. Although you may not think so now, you will remember the good times. The care you gave him, the joy he gave you will come to overshadow the sorrow. To me, that is how it should be.

My deepest condolences to you and your family. May the memories you have of Cherokee carry you through the following days/months and may it warm your heart to know that he was a cherished part of your family.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. Cherokee is no longer in pain. I'm sure that you've given him a great life during his time here. Be sure to treasure the memories of him.

Rest peacefully Cherokee

Thank you for giving him release from pain. It is the hardest thing to make this decision and then we have to live with the pain of their loss.

RIP, Cherokee . You were loved and are now free.
