I'm sure most people here being animal lovers have had to at one time or another put down an animal. It sucks even though you know in your heart you have done what is best for the animal...

We had to put down our lab today. She was 12 years old and a wonderful dog. She was suffering from advanced stages of Lyme disease. Our vet tried to make us feel better by telling us that she was 12 anyway, and had lived a good life and was deeply loved. The deeply loved part was sure true, but, when it comes to our animals, 12 doesn't seem all that old.

As if losing her was not hard enough, what makes matters worse is that since mid-December we have lost 2 dogs. Our GSD passed with bloat right before Xmas. It has been a rough couple of months with our furkids.

Anyway, just wanted to make my own little tribute to one of the best dogs I have ever know. May both my girls RIP and know we will always love them...hopefully they are now together.


Mira in happier days

It's never easy...our sympathies are with you.

Your girls were lucky to be your's, as lucky as you were to be their's.
Glad to see you have "Max" help you thru the rough spots...

Of course, we'll be needing to see him too!

I am so sorry for your losses, but please be comforted that they are together again and watching over you all the time and that they knew they were and are loved always.
RIP sweet fur babies

maxismom, it is very hard to say goodbye, no matter what age they are. It sometimes seems unfair, and when their suffering ends, ours begins.
Please be assured that Mira and Alexis are together, looking down upon you. Nobody can explain that peaceful, serene feeling we get once our grieving subsides.
I always said that feeling is a sign from above, so when you feel at peace, that is when Mira has reunited with Alexis. They're looking down and saying, "thanks mom, we know how much we were loved".


Hugs.

I am so sorry you have had to deal with two losses so close together. I know they are happy to be together at the bridge. They are some beautiful and noble ladies and I know you miss them so very much. Hugs to you.

It's doubly hard when you have two losses so close together.

I remember once the same day a relationship ended for me my dog died. when I'm in my parents home I STILL look in back of me before I step back to make sure Jack isn't there. That was 10 years ago!

I can't think of what to say to make you feel better, but remember that the dog was lucky to have you as a good, loving master.
You'll never feel 100% about recovering after the loss, but I promise that other 'loves' will come along also!

I really appreciate everyones kind words. Only those who love and keep animals can truly understand this kind of loss as our furkids ARE like kids to us. Surely each and every one of you has experienced this awful feeling of emptiness when one of our "kids" pass...again, thank you all for your support. It means a lot to me.

I am always sorry to read the posts where someone loses their best friend, but this is doubly hard knowing this is two so close together for you.

Hugs, thoughts and prayers are coming your way as you wait for your heart to heal.

Run free, Mira and Alexis.
