Just lost best friend

Saturday, May 06, 2017

Yesterday I had to take my fur pal, Molly, to the vet as she was not eating and having a hard time getting up two steps at the front door. The vet said that she has had a long full life but now it is time to let go as she has a mass inside that may let go anytime as she has started bleeding. This was one of the hardest things I have had to do. Molly has been my friend, exercise buddy and general love bug. After she was put down and DW and I were back home, DW dropped a bomb on me that no more animals in the house. Although I have two legs, I am an animal also so we shall see what happens. I don't know how long this grief will last but right now I have no motivation to do anything. Appetite and exercise are not part of my life at this point. Anyone that has had and been close to a pet knows how I feel.

I will get another dog to keep me company in my retirement, it just may not be in this household. I was up most of the night but today my feelings are just as strong. I never knew DW could be so cold and uncaring. She has definitely put up a wall between us.

I am on hold for now to see if things change.

    Bob, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I lost my Amber a few years ago and I know how hard it is. I too did not want any more dogs because I didn't want the heartbreak again. But now I'm ready for a new companion. Maybe your DW just needs a little time. Hoping for the best. emoticon

    Bob,sorry to read of your loss.I lost one of my best buds in the early spring when my cat had a seizure right in front of me and took its last breath in my lap.....the bad thing i was along at home at the time so i had to do all the end of life for him. i dug a hole in the back yard which when you are lunging a oxygen tank with you and then back in the house to get Casper ready and then finish the job.....i picked a spot right outside the patio which is right out my bedroom window....some nights when the windows are open i can sure i hear him calling to come hurt like a pain i have not felt in a long time and even today its hard to talk about....i sure hope you and DW can come to some arrangements to make both of you happy...have a great breathe easy evening Bob.

    I am so sorry for your loss Bob. You gave Molly an amazing life. You need time to emotionally heal. If bringing another fur pal back in your life means happiness in your retirement then perhaps you need to indicate that to DW. Seems to me if you're doing 100% of the care then you should be able to have another fur pal.

    Okay I'll get your room ready! You'll have chickens for neighbors but they're not all that noisy. Just the roosters, ha ha.

    Feel better soon my friend. Gentle hugs.

    I lost my fury friend in January and vowed never to get another. 3weeks later we adopted the fuzzball in my profile pic. It takes time to heal when you lose a pet. Hang in there. She may come around.💜
