Saying goodbye to my furry friend

JP8810 profile image

I just had to have my dog put to sleep due to adrenal gland cancer. Needless to say I'm a bit of a wreck. Pets bring us such joy, especially when we're dealing with mental illness. The pain is immense when we lose them. My heart goes out to anyone else dealing with loss. It hurts to the core. Please keep me in your prayers. Thanks.

Thank you for your words of comfort.

SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. My dog is dying of cancer. What helped me when I went through a very similar experience years ago was visiting accuratepsychicreadingsonli... - the free prayer forum - I posted about my sadness and loads of people prayed for me, it was so supporting and uplifting, I even made a good friend.

Great idea. Thank you for the information.

I'm very sorry for your lost... it is not easy to lose our furry love ones. We had to suddenly put our cat to sleep last year... definitely was hard, we had her since she was a kitten. Allow yourself to grieve & let it be okay.💛🫂

Thank you and sorry for the loss of your cat

I'm so sorry about your adorable puppy dog. Among the hardest things I've ever done is put my cat to sleep when she was suffering, my heart goes out to you. It helped me to write a letter to my kitty and remember the good things she brought into my life.

Your kind words really touched me. Thank you.

I had to have my dog put down about 20 years ago I still miss her to this day but we had some very good times together I’ll probably be thinking of her when I die someday.

Thank you.

I am so sorry for your loss. That’s a perfect way to say it, that it hurts to the core. I lost one of mine a year ago and the pain still lingers, but I know she lived a long and happy life. I’m sure that your baby did too, and you did the best thing for him. We are with you🙏

Thank you. Im glad to be able to share with others about the pain and thank you for sharing about your loss. Peace!

Oh my darling I’m so very sorry for the loss of your precious fur baby. It’s such a raw and all consuming grief. My heart is breaking for you! Our fur babies are part of our family. I have three Chihuahuas who are all getting old now and I dread the day when I have to say goodbye. Your wee fur baby would have had the very best life with you. You’ll be left with a heart full of precious memories of a happy life spent together. If your fur baby could thank you I’m sure they would. What’s happened was for them to stop any suffering. It certainly doesn’t make it any easier but we owe them that, as not to let them suffer and keep them for our own selfish reasons. It’s because you love your wee fur baby. Please know that I’m holding you close in my heart and prayers at this terribly sad time. We are all here for you my darling if you need us! Rest In Peace Sweetheart 🌈🐾🕊💔😘xx

One of my cousins has 2 chichuauas called Lily and Coco!

I’m so sorry!!!! It’s one of the worse feelings! My prayers are with you!!! Maybe when you feel ready another pet would help. I got 2 shih tzus after putting one down. It didn’t replace him, but it kept my mind busy. Now they are my world. It’s so sad because they are our family!! Hugs!!!

We have a very spoilt ginger tabby called Baby who is 17 and she is an old lady but she is well at present but we will be devastated when she passes as she is a family member.

Once I got laughed at when I said how our cat was a family member and my ex boyfriend stood up for me saying how pets are part of the family what's so amusing about that?

You are absolutely right that they are part of our family. Im sure you have packed alot of good times in these 17 years. God bless!

I know it's hard. I've been through it many times myself and it always hurts so bad. Just try to remember the nice times and that he lead a good life.
