My Angel, I miss you more than words can express

Last Monday was my last day with my baby, Duncan (he was 14 and 2/3). He died in his bed where we both slept next to each other. He was always within arms length so I could pet him if I awakened in the night. He was unable to get up by himself and needed assistance walking the last 3 months and I had just looked into getting him a doggie wheelchair. He ate his dinner that night which was a good canned food and I gave him some pasta with chicken broth which he loves. He was hungry. He peed and pooped outside and went to sleep. He did not seem in pain but was very tired. I awoke at 3:00 am and helped him turn over and went back to sleep. When I awoke again at 7:00 he was gone. The pain of his going was so deep I was tempted to follow him.

I am still in shock and feel an unbelievable emptiness in my home. He was my best friend, soulmate, child, family. He has kept me company as I care for my mother who is also very old (98) and has terminal health problems. I knew the pain would be coming but when it does it really wipes you off your feet.

I know only others who are suffering this loss understand.

Thinking of you at this very sad time on the loss of your angel. Myself and my family are currently going through the same pain as you and know exactly how you are feeling. Our house is so empty and quiet now. We lost our little angel Daisy aged 3 on 7th Jan (new member devastated thread).

Your golden had a lovely life, 14 is a wonderful age and you will have lots of lovely memories to look back on

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad he didn't suffer and went peacefully.

I wish the best to you and your mother.

I hope in time, when you are ready, you get to have another wonderful Golden to love and to love you. (((((hugs)))))

I am so sorry for your loss but what a lovely way to go had a good meal and lots of love and to go in his sleep something i have always wished for instead of having to make the decision for them

I am very sorry for your loss of Duncan. I know it does not bring much comfort but at least it was peaceful departure. There is no way to prepare for such a great loss.
8 months past since my Buddy left me and still there are times when I ask why I am still here and wish I was gone that same day.
I am truly sorry. I understand how you feel.
Rest in peace sweet Duncan.
