Sad Day, but need to have faith

Friday, February 22, 2013

We put our dog to sleep last night. She had a rough day and I just couldn't watch her suffer any longer. Today I am reminiscing by looking at her puppy pictures and trying to decide which one to have my niece do a sketching from for us. Didn't sleep well and just not hungry, but forcing myself to eat something, as I know that is important for my mental and physical health also.
Going for lunch today to get out of the house with my daughter. I'm sure I'll be good today with the meal, as the appetite just isn't there today.
I know my Lily is at peace now and am so glad her pain is gone. She was the best family friend ever. RIP Lil.

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. We had to make that decision with our last 2 goldens. Max after a long illness and Cheers on a decision we had to make in 10 minutes. I'm not really sure which was harder. I do know that both times it was the right decision to make. Their quality of life was not what it should be. We didn't want them to suffer or loose the dignity they lived their lives with. As Bescats said she is a rainbow bridge now running and playing and waiting to meet up with you much later.

    You know you made the right decision to end her suffering, It doesn't make it easy for us, because we love them so much,and wonder why they can't live as long as we do. She is over the "rainbow bridge", and some day you will see her again. Until then, keep her close to your heart, she'll know. emoticon

    Oh my gosh...I'm so sorry. I'm so bonded with my dog. It's almost like she's an appendage of mine.

    I hope you can find peace.

    So sorry about your pup. It brought tears to my eyes just reading your blog. Last fall I lost my "best friend" of 14 years. He grew up with my children and it broke my heart to have to put him down but I know it was the best thing as he was suffering as well. Give yourself time to heal. You know he will always be in your heart and will always be a part of your family. Now I have a new pup, who again is the light of my life and in time you will too. emoticon emoticon emoticon
