I am so sorry that you have lost your beautiful dog.

Having lived with dogs for many years it is so painful to say good bye.

You have indeed so many lovely memories of the wonderful times you have shared.

I keep you in my thoughts.

Oh no I am so sorry! My dogs mean everything to me and have helped me to cope with my anxiety, losing a dog is as painful as losing a person (sometimes moreso).

When my lab, Jenny Woolypup, died I planted a miniature conifer in her memory. It's called the Jenny Tree. It really helped at the time and it's her memorial.

Very best wishes

Losing a best friend is so hard, they are family and with us every day, loyal, trusting and giving unconditional love so keep all those wonderful memories close and remember the good times you had together and may your beautiful boy rest in eternal peace x

Sorry to hear that Wilsond. It`s heart breaking when you lose a pet. At least you know though he lead a good life and was well loved. He lived to a good age too - 87 in doggie years.

Best,

Cried like baby when I said goodbye to my old friend. Went out to the dog shelter the next day and found a new best mate, that was fifteen years ago and we are getting close to repeating the process. Take care. Stupid Dogs!!

Very sorry for you, its a hard time and they are part of the family. We lost our old lab 2 years ago, he had been ill for a while and it was a difficult time and I still miss him lots. We said we would never get another but a year later got another lab pup. We still call the new pup Ben sometimes even though she is a little girl.

You need to grieve, and cry when you feel like it, it us all part of it, remember you have lost one of the family, I am sure he had a lovely caring life, and he knew you were with him when he passed, so knew he was loved until the end. It gets easier but leaves a hole in your heart every time 😘😘

So very sorry, he looks like a lovely gentle giant. I discharged myself from hospital on the day my husband came to tell me that my dog had passed away, because I just couldn't accept that she'd gone. Luckily the cardiologist I was under was a dog lover, so understood and I went back in. Big hugs for the coming days because you'll need them! Sharon

Yes I do understand. I still suddenly cry when I see his picture on my wall. I think that you have to tell yourself what a wonderful life he had with you.I must say that he a had a long life for his breed type.I have two more little chihauhaus now. It took me a long time to decide to have them but they have given me new interest and are completely different to my other boy.I hope that you feel a bit better soon, Words are not enough.

I can truly sympathise, our lovely Sacha died just over a month ago, and I have cried many tears, and so miss her lovely gentleness around the place. If you are a dog lover they leave a huge hole when they leave us. I really feel for you.

I don’t think I have ever seen as many replies to a post here. That says so much. They are our true best friends. Mine have sat thru afib episodes with me in the middle of the night, just laying beside me, heads in my lap. Not understanding, but knowing they needed to help.

I feel your sorrow.

I lost my beloved Siamese cat a month ago and still cry for him every day,he was a rescue cat and we had him for 8 Christmases, I held him as he went to sleep so I know and feel your heartache, they are family members and takes a long while to recover from such love, given so freely to us. To love is also to hurt at times like this. Am thinking of you.

wilsond I as so sorry to hear you have lost your dog :-(

Dogs have always played a big part in my life so I can appreciate how sad you must be feeling.

I know we should try not to get upset when we have AF , I usually wander around sobbing to myself when I lose a precious friend and am sure I will do the same when my current one goes.

so sorry you have lost your beautiful friend - don't know how I'll cope when I lose mine but wouldn't be without them. There is no cure to the sadness although I find I remember the happy times more now. I realise that they can never be replaced as they are all such wonderful and different characters, but I'd consider getting another dog. I didn't for years after my first pair died, but looking back on it I see it as lost time as I recognise that tying though they are, life isn't the same without a furry companion or two! Best wishes.

Aw... such a shame they have to go. He looks like he had a good life. I'm a total atheist, but nevertheless I still reckon all my dogs will be waiting for me up (or down) there when my time comes. Dogs are so good, much better than people.

I will never forget the day that my baby Jonathan went to heaven. It was one of the saddest days of my lifetime … I loved him too much … I still carry his ashes with me and this was many years ago. The pain is awful and the tears flow freely. My very best wishes to you.

Hello I am new on here and saw this post. I lost my dog in November just before Christmas. It was the worst Christmas ever. We cried, cried and cried again - and still have a tear. The love from an animal is so unconditional and so very different. Its a special bond a special love. Our house is empty as he lit up every room. Rubie was 10 yrs old when he left us and like yourself I held him in my arms. He would never have left me and I wasn't about to leave him. He was my life saviour when I lost my husband and he gave me a reason to go on. I owe him so much. I think God has a time for all of us and his timing is perfect. As time goes on you will begin to realise that it was a blessing for your lovely baby and probably you. I have just been diagnosed with AF. My dog was poorly and needed a lot of looking after, which I couldn't have done now. I thank God he is at peace, that I was able to look after him and that he finished his journey with me. He would have been so stressed with someone else looking after him. He only had eyes for me. I know he is safe. Your baby is too. He will be in your heart forever. He was meant to come to you. You give them your best and God does the rest. Hope this helps.
