Heartbroken

I lost my love, Sonny (9.5 year old GSD), last week after a 2 month battle with Hemangiosarcoma. He had been doing beautifully in his recovery, but took a downturn about 2.5 weeks ago... had exercise intolerance, and then slowly lost his appetite/stopped eating, and couldn't really walk more than a few steps without needing to lay down his last few days. I didn't want to see him suffer anymore so I had to release him from this awful disease last Wednesday.

My heart is shattered. I miss him so much it feels like it physically hurts sometimes. He was my heart dog.

I think we all understand how empty you must feel after such a loss. Sorry you are going through a difficult time now.

I know what's it like. No one wants to lose their beloved dog.

You acted compassionately on Sonny's behalf and you knew he loved you very much.

My condolences on your loss! Our first GSD will be always be the love of our life.

It will take awhile before you stop feeling the pain. Our body actually goes through withdrawal, I am sure it does.

My eyes still get damp when I remember the passing of my past fur buddies. Do your best to remember all the happy memories so you can smile through the tears.

It does hurt physically......

So very sorry for your loss - hemangio is terrible and unfortunately so common - I think everyone I know has lost one to it....

The act of letting them go, ending their suffering and suffering ourselves is an ultimate act of how much we love them....
