A couple of years ago I lost my Sheltie in February and my Lab mix in September. It was absolutely heart wrenching. It's been particularly difficult because I have an Aussie mix who is/was a year younger than my Lab mix and my Sheltie was only two years older than the Lab. They were all so close in age it wasn't surprising they went close together but I wasn't expecting THAT close and I constantly worry about losing my Aussie now.
Thank you, I sure will cherish all our moments
Sorry to hear you lost your two so close together, I'm not sure I could handle that much pain. As you say, it's about cherishing the moments we have left, but not worrying is easier said than done.

Just an update guys, four weeks ago I made the decision to let my girl go to sleep. Her dementia got too much and her legs got worse. I'm still so lost and broken but wanted to update you as you were kind enough to offer me advice. Her last day was so special, I took her for a nice "walk" in her buggy, she ate so much steak, myself, my partner and good friend who watched Suki while I was at work all had a sleepover on the floor before the vet visited the next day. I fed her steak as she gazed into my eyes and slipped away while looking at a smiling daddy and eating her favourite food. It was the hardest things I've ever done, and I know it'll get easier, but I just can't see that yet.

She was my life, a lap dog who was at my side for 13 years, she could never be left alone, and for her last year or so, needed a lot of care, so it's such a shock to the system. I've lost many family members, but never felt grief like this, and I never knew it involved physical pain. I ache for her so much and think of her every minute of every day, but I do know I done the right thing. Again, I appreciated the advice you all gave me, it did help with the final decision. xx

I always get a knot in my stomach and a little weepy when I read postings on having to put a dog down. It's tough, but know you made the right decision, you gave the dog a wonderful life. I think we do get more attached to our furry friends cause they are always around, always there.

i'm sorry for your loss.

So sorry you lost her, I can only imagine how you must miss her. You did the best and most kind thing you possibly could for her.

Thanks everyone. I know it was best for her, just can't shake this feeling of being lost and running to the toilets in work all the time in tears. Thankfully no one sees me. I know I'll get there though, I tell myself this all the time.
