    I am so sorry, I know how hard it is when your pet dies, my dog died just over a year ago and I was in pieces when he died, they become a part of your family and it's like losing a part of you. Remember the good times you had with your pet, and the photos if you have any. :hug:

    Sometimes I think losing a pet is harder than losing a person. I've had several pets pass away. I try to keep the memories of them alive. I'm still grieving the loss of my beautiful chocolate lab puppy, Barney. He was taken so young...

    so sad for you :sad:
    i have lost a beloved dog - 30 years ago - i still have dreams about her and she is healthy and running - she had a laughing smile.....

    and i have lost beloved birds. :sad: in october, and last year, and 2 years ago. it is SO hard to lose a beloved pet.

    animals are so innocent. and helpless, dependent. their love is unconditional. and it is hard grieving, to lose such a precious life-source. i will be thinking of you hun :hug:

    i'm sorry about your dog.
    i know how hard it can be to lose a pet.

    i used to have a dog, Missy. I told her all of my problems, like she could relate to them (call me crazy), and when we had to put her down i was devistated.

    :hug: if you need to talk, please message me.
    I'm here for you :heart:

    It truly is a huge loss when a pet dies. I'd be devastated if I lost my pets at the moment, so I can only imagine how hard it must be for you at this time.

    My cat, who was 17 years old and diabetic, had to be put down a year and a half ago and my son (9) still cries about it. He misses him terribly.

    I just want to give you a big hug...I'm glad you shared with us.

    I am very sorry for your loss. ]= It's horrible when a pet dies, but it does get easier as time goes on. Just remember the good times. Those are what count.

    God I know how much that can hurt. I've seen friends in tears when their pets die. It can be easier to get closer to them than most people.
    I am so sorry for your loss :console:
