We lost our wonderful chocolate lab, Loki, last week. My husband and I raised him from a pup and he was our child and best friend. Loki was 13 years old. He lived long and had a good life. We miss him more than we can say. But it isn't that he passed away that is tearing me up, but how he passed. It was a series of mistakes we made on the last day of his life. Loki was on a slow decline, but he wasn't sick, if you know what I mean. We had gone out of town and got the call from our petsitter that he was in bad shape and we came directly home. We then made what I believe now to be a bad medical decision. I won't go into the details. I think we were just tired and not thinking straight. Loki passed during the night. I think he may have experienced an unpleasant death because we did it all wrong. I am having a tough time getting beyond it and celebrating his life. I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience of feeling at fault for the manner in which your dog died?
