    Last week or so, I posted that I might have to consider putting my dog down.

    Today around 1:00 pacific time, I had the vet come to the house and administer the drug.

    This week has been so emotionally sad, and now today just broke me. This was the hardest decision to make. I know she won't be in anymore pain, but I feel as lifeless as rock. I have been crying all day and have an enormous head ache.

    Her name was Serena, she was a black lab mix about 12-14 years old. She had severe arthritis setting in more. She would fall so much in the last year, but more in the final 4. She lost so much weight. She had pain getting out of her bed.

    She use to sleep with tennis balls in her mouth, she loved them so much. She use to run with me, bark when the door bell rang. She showed her teeth at my spouse for the first 2 weeks of meeting him 7 years ago. She loved him by the 3rd week.

    I miss her so much already.

    Ugghhh, with a 15 and a 16 year old, I feel your pain (sort of). I know that day is coming for us and I dread it more than anything. I wish you comfort. Very sorry.

    I am so sorry. I know how difficult it is to finally make that decision. Now she is resting in peace, not pain. Big hugs.

    So, very sorry to hear your sad news.

    I know when I had my Rottie put to sleep, I felt empty inside for a long time.

    I think Serena had a good life with you both, and that if there had been any other options, you would have followed them rather than euthanasia.

    It will take time for you to get over the events of the day, but you will.

    The kindest possible way for you to let your girl go, was to do what you did, in the place she loved to be, with the people she loved the most.

    *hugs*

    Oh I thought you meant your boyfriend.

    It's is very hard to lose your pet. I lost both my cats within 3 months of each other. And for quite a while, I would reflectively look cuz I thought I saw them out of the side of my eye. Or look in at the bed where they would sleep.

    Really sorry for your loss. Our pets are family and are a daily part of our lives. You have to know that you did the best thing for her as she is not suffering anymore. She is in the sky somewhere with her tennis ball right now looking down on you.

    I would not let someone get so close to me that s/he/it has difficulty if I go away. Also I try not to get too attached to any other non-replacable thing, coz it sucks when you can't bear someone's loss.

    Btw I'm a bit more entertaining than a dog. Dogs suck AND BITE. One of them bit me when I was young for no fault of mine.

    PS I am not a quick fuck. I usually try to know about the person and then fuck them (in a sexual way, no pun intended icon_razz.gif)

    Dude, your prejudice against dogs has no place in a thread like this - no-one here will sympathise.

    If you can't get close to things you may not be able to replace, then your life will be so much less rich than those who do.

    Dogs are unconditional in their feelings toward us,I'm sorry one bit you. It probably had its reasons.

    Peace.

    Yep, you are right. People who have never been bitten would never know...
    I should probably start a dog hating thread, icon_razz.gif just kidding.
    Kali.. don't get too depressed dude, let time do its thing, and everything will be alright. You can get another puppy, or some other pet with longer lifespan to cheer you up icon_smile.gif

    So sorry to hear about your loss. That's a grief that no one can relate to unless they've been there themselves. Cherish those memories and keep sharing your love of her with those you know.

    Oh how sad. Please take comfort in that you provided a loving home for her. She knew that, and was always grateful. Hugs to you. icon_smile.gif

    Same here. 15 year old lab/samoyed here, day-by-day. It's so hard to watch something suffer. I just try to think about how lucky I've been to have had him for 15 years.IMAGE HTTP ADDRESS GOES HERE

    Well, this is one of the most pathetic responses I've ever come across, but I take comfort in knowing that whoever said it is apparently someone emotionless, unable to care, unable to be empathetic, and more than likely sociopathic - you suck dude

    I remember your original thread on Serena.. I'm so very sorry for you, I know it is a very difficult weekend. Prayers and hugs. I know she was awesome for you and you will miss her terribly. Just know you did what was best for her. She loved you and you were awesome with her.

    Just know many of us understand!

    Just know we are with you.

    So very sad for you, and with you. The pain and sorrow is immense in this time. Much Love to you.
    Rocco.

    I ONLY WANTED YOU



    They say memories are golden
    well maybe that is true.
    I never wanted memories,
    I only wanted you.

    A million times I needed you,
    a million times I cried.
    If love alone could have saved you
    you never would have died.

    In life I loved you dearly,
    In death I love you still.
    In my heart you hold a place
    no one could ever fill.

    If tears could build a stairway
    and heartache make a lane,
    I'd walk the path to heaven
    and bring you back again.

    Our family chain is broken,
    and nothing seems the same.
    But as God calls us one by one,
    the chain will link again.

    ~Vicky Holder
