Two years ago we lost two dogs and in between we lost both of our fathers. I grieved for the dogs harder and longer because the fathers were expected. My Sadie (1/2 golden 1/2 basset) was fine, but started losing her sight on Thursday. My vet was on vacation so we made an appointment for Monday and kept her next to us thinking we could help her. By Sunday she started convulsing and we had to send her to the bridge to end the pain. The emergency vet said that she probably had brain cancer and the tumor caused the blindness and seizures. Sam (basset) lasted a few months before he passed in his sleep. He was never the same without her. You are in my prayers and, yes, I hate leaving them anywhere overnight.

I am so very sorry for your loss. She was so young. Try to find some peace with all the good memories you had with her.

I'm so sorry that you lost your Elle so soon. I know the second guessing only make your loss worst. Please know that Elle knows that her mommy did what seemed to be the best for her at the time. I'm sorry that this is such an awful time for your family. Big hugs to you.

I read here, everyday, but I rarely ever post. I just had to say that I am so very sorry for your loss. And she was so pretty. You did the best you could, and your dog knows this. Don't beat yourself up over it. Your dog knows what your intentions were, and that she was loved, and that is what matters. Again, I'm so very sorry for you and your family.

Lori, sorry for the sadness you are feeling in losing your beautiful Elle, you were doing what you believe was right for her, in trying to find out why she was sick, she would know that you really loved her. I hope when your pain and emptiness subsides you may like to share with us some photos of Elle and this sometimes can help you thru your grieving , that it how I came to find this forum when I too lost my best friend Jessie.
