Sorry So Sad

I just had to have my dog put to sleep. I bitched about what a pain in the ass he was constantly. But, really, he was a sweet and energetic boxer. He had curiosity in his eyes. He was beautiful. I tiger striped brindle. And as much a complained about him, I really loved him. I never imagined this would hurt this bad. And my husband isn't here to share the pain. And I really hate that he didn't get to see him before we had to let him go.

Thankfully, he went out with no pain. For that I am very thankful.

Just feeling very empty tonight. I didn't see this coming.

Oh, you poor darling, that is horrible. Dogs are very very special. Sending you all my happy thoughts and love. xo

Oh, no :(

That's not something you should have to deal with alone, I'm sorry no-one is there with you. Pets become such a part of the family, whether they dig up your garden or pull the couches (like our cats, grrr). One of our cats is 18, we've had him since I was 12 and he was already a year old, so I know he's not going to be around for years to come, but it's so hard to prepare yourself for it, whether you know it's coming or if it's unexpected.

But if your dog had to be put to sleep, then it must have been for a good reason and at least you can take a bit of comfort in the fact he's not in pain and he's not suffering.

Oh, it's so sad :( Animals always make me tear up, even if I don't know them!

Take care and I hope your husband is back soon. Love you xx

Oh, it is always so sad to have to say goodbye to a pet.

Sending a big hug to you, my dear.

I am so sorry to hear that. I had to put a yellow lab to sleep about 5 years ago and it was devastating (she wasn't even very old, just very sick). I feel for you and will send love vibes to you and your family, for sure.

I am so, so sorry for you. We had to put our boxer down 3 years ago and it was horrible. We got a new boxer and appreciate her much more. They are little pains in the you know what! Anyhow, I'm terribly sad for you.
