So sorry and agreed about the people in this thread.
Sorry to hear that Crazed
how long have you had her?
I was a junior in high school in 1991 and my dads neighbor had a German Shepard that had puppies and I took one, this was a bad part of Ft. Worth and no telling what would happen to the puppies so without asking my mom (that l lived with) I took a male, named him Emmitt and he was the best dog I could have ever had, the day I put him down in 2002 was beyond painful, sorry bud.
2 in 18 months? That's horrible, I'm sorry to hear that!
2 in 18 months is awful. I'm sorry. That sucks.
The best thing I can really say is our lost friends never really leave us. You can't see them, but they remain in your heart. When you're feeling down, they are always there with you.
Just over 11 years. I thought she would live longer being a small dog.
It's never enough, is it? Screw life extension research on humans...we need it for pets!
Agreed, and animals in general. Animals always help make people smile.
I just ain't got it in me any more,bro,in fact I need to flee fast away from this thread,cuz' I'm feeling that "creep" coming up on me, nevertheless,you have my heartfelt condolences,my Friend.
Much appreciated man.
It's not but I will think about getting another when my other dog dies. He's another little dog and I thought I would never want one of those, but once my wife got them they had me wrapped around their paws.
I'm so sorry to hear that, CLE. Dogs bring so much love into our lives and their loss brings so much pain. A friend told me "Those who love much, hurt much". Another told me to take as much time as I need to grieve. I grieved so hard over one particular dog that I ran out and got a puppy within days of losing her. No dog on earth could replace The Bitty, but no dog could replace Puddin either. It hurts just remembering.
Just take care of yourself right now and give yourself permission to feel what you feel. Honor your pet in a way that seems right to you. If you need us, we'll be here for you.
So sorry for your loss crazed. My pastor once put up a sign that read
“Lord, help me be the man that my dog thinks I am”
They are so loyal and love you unconditionally.
So very sorry for your loss and prayers to you during this difficult time.
Been through it many a time and it is probably the worst feeling in the world.
They are like family.
Yes indeed. Well said. In fact, dogs and other animals bring more than that into our lives. In a way, they make us more complete than we otherwise would be. Their companionship and unconditional love is inspiring, cheering, and really needed. It's hard to imagine getting on without our friends like that. Even animals you wouldn't expect to be friends with you can carry so much in your heart and bring so much more. I truly do believe that animals do have their own soul and personalities. Not like ours. But their own ones. For example, there's this snake I've known for a long time. God willing, I'll see him over Thanksgiving as he's at a school I which I'd volunteer during summers as a kid. He's a ball python. He's been such a blessing, and his calm and friendly demeanor really helps me when I'm not feeling so happy.
I believe we could learn a lot about love and unconditional love from our friends.
Amen to that^^
Like everyone here that posted before me, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You lost a family member today. No other way to say it after 11 years of watching one grow. 11 years of emotional support you and your family shared. There really isn't enough words to explain the grief you must be feeling. All we can say, is we too have been there. If you need someone to talk to, we are all here for you.....
I couldn't have said it better than you did.... Thank you....
I understand your loss. It's not an easy thing to have to go through ...this I know from experience.... I'm sure you did all you could, and what you had to. ..I can't prove it, but something always tells me that one day...somehow... we all will see our beloved pets again!
