    Yeah, I'm pretty sure my late Tasha was there to give Pete a toy to play with. He's got lots of great company. So sorry.

    FV, my deepest condolences. It's an honor to be able to raise a pup, and thank you for looking out for Pete's best interests above all else.

    Peace to you and your mom--may the pain be gentle and the happy memories plentiful.

    I'm so sorry, FV. I lost my doggy soul mate (a beautiful 15 year old border collie) 2 years ago this month. I know it doesn't make it any easier, but you did the right thing. That might not give you any comfort now, but hopefully it will in time.

    Thank you all, again.

    Yes, Tasha and Josie were waiting for him on the bridge with a new squeaky toy. I hope Gwendolyn, Pete's older sister(my girl that i lost 2 years ago) was there too. They all can play up a storm now since they are no longer feeling sick or tired.

    Time doesn't really make it any easier, I still think about Gwenie just about every day.

    I'm so glad I could come here and talk about it, because you guys know exactly what I'm going through. He wasn't just my dog, he was a best friend.

    FV I'm sorry too. I love dogs more than people and I'm sure Pete had a happy life with you. Hugs to you and your mom.

    My ex just put one of his cocker spaniels down this week - massive kidney failure. She was 17. It's so easy to get attached to dogs and think that they will live forever.

    With any of my pets, it really is always in the back of my mind.

    It always is. I lost my Bella Rue' in May and could have.. and did on occasion cry once a day when I thought about her. It was a good 3 months before I could think of her and smile and remember the good things rather than her last night and day. (She had a hernia that tore and her intestine twisted, I did the shoulda/coulda, for months. I took her to the ER vet that night but I just kept thinking what if I took her 1 hr before, what if this..)
    You're in my thoughts, it's so hard.

    I know what you mean. I think about Josie every day. I even got another dog and had a kid, and I still think about her goofy self every day.

    I just came across this thread....

    my sweet 10 year old puggie girl developed issues with not eating in April, and in June we discovered it was lymphoma. We had her scheduled to get chemo, but she was suffering too much and we had to put her to sleep. And we lost another one only a year previously due to complications after cataract surgery. Its been so awful.

    <<<Out of the three on my avatar over there, only one is left.

    I truly feel your pain, and nothing I can say will help you. Your boy was a sweet blessing in your life, and try to remember that you gave him a wonderful life, so he was blessed to have you as well.

    Just like my Yogi and Louie, your Pete and Gwendolyn are playing together again, in a place where nothing hurts and every day is beautiful, and watching over you with all their love.
    Is it Happy Hour yet?

    I am in your shoes tonight, we had to have one of ours euthanized this afternoon. I wish they would all live to at least 20 and die peacefully at home.

    I have been avoiding reading this thread because I just...can't. My dog is 11 and every day I whisper to her that she can never die. I know a pet is a so much more than a pet, and the only comfort we really have is knowing that we've loved them so completely while they were here.

    Sorry you have to deal with this when you are so busy with your nuptials. Be sure to take time to grieve.
