Lost a best friend

I had to put my girl down a few weeks ago. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do. It's been hard to talk about. She had a seizure one week before. Took her to the vet and he didn't find anything. Then a week later she had a much worse one and maybe a stroke also because she couldn't get up. I don't think she knew me at the end or wasn't aware. Just couldn't let her go through that again.

I miss her so much. We were inseparable for 13 years. I still think I see her and automatically call for her. I would love to have another dog but now is not the time.


  1. Oh, dear. I'm so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful creature. She had a sweet face and smile in that photo.

    Now may not be the time for another pet, but when the time is right, you'll know.

  2. Thank you, Rudee. It's hard to imagine another dog right now but I do hope to have one at some point. I love the pictures of your Dobie! Dogs are such loving creatures.

  3. Kathy and I (continue to) send our condolences.

  4. Thank you, you two are the best! And you know what it's like to lose a furry friend. They have their own personalities and can be so funny.

  5. She was always excited when she saw you. Do you think it was because you gave her cookies?

  6. I'm so sorry to hear this. How sad, but you did the right thing.

    I had to put my Siamese cat down after 22 years!! I saw him/heard his feet on the hardwood floor for months after...
