I am sorry sweet Maggie that was your time to leave us. I know heaven welcomed you there and our golden angels showed you the way around. My deepest condolences to your family.
Go play sweet girl, run fast and free.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how painful this is. Please know that you did everything you could and Maggie knows that she was loved and cared for. My deepest sympathy and hope that your pain will ease.

It was all my fault

I am taking full responsibility for having put Maggie to sleep Had I made the decision to go with the Madison chemo protocol instead of the doxo, Maggie might still be with us I thought that I made the right decision at the time after it appeared that Maggie went into remission after a month on the doxo Even if I would have opted for a rescue protocol, things might have been different today I think that Bella was a gift from God, knowing that our remaining time with Maggie was very limited I hope that I never have to make a decision like the one that I made with Maggie, again

Everything you are feeling is a part of the stages of grieving. A lot of us have been there, done that. We question our decisions. think of the "what if". I know I have done it many times, sometimes I still do.

I am sure you did the best you could for your Maggie and she loved you for it!

So sorry about Maggie. Yes, what you are experiencing is part of the grieving process, as cgriffin said. It lessens over time, but I know it is so hard. Please know that we are all here for support.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Maggie is in a better place and she doesn't feel any pain anymore. I know Maggie put up a strong fight but you can't blame yourself for anything. It'll take time to let her go and move on (took me 5 months for my golden). I hope you stay in touch and find happiness with Maggie by looking back on the good times you guys had together. She'll always be next to you watching over you!

When being presented with a diagnosis as devastating as cancer, for your beloved Maggie (or any of our beloved goldens), it is VERY hard to determine what course to take. As others have said, it is definitely a heartbreaking stage of grieving that we go through. You loved your girl completely and made the very best decision that you could make for her. It would make Maggie sad to know that you're going thru this self-doubt. I'm so very sorry that you lost Maggie! I hope that in time you will be able to take comfort in the many beautiful memories that you share.
