Thanks for all your kind words and support. It really does help to know what others have gone through this and can relate to what you’re feeling. I just got home from the veterinarians and said goodbye to my sweet Sandy.

For all the love and companionship our beloved pets bring us, it is just so hard letting them go, even when it’s for the best.

Seeing her peaceful and at rest, after such a horrible weekend, makes it a little easier.

Again, thanks so much for all your support and kind words.

I'm so sorry for your heartbreak. I'm glad she has peace now and is not suffering. I hope a time will come when you will smile as you think of happy memories of Sandy.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I know exactly how you was horrible when it was decided to free our Sophie girl from the pain and suffering she went through during a major illness...but it was a relief to see/know her suffering stopped. I know someday we'll meet again at rainbow bridge May your good memories help you through this very difficult time.

Many of us have lived your loss. I know how inexplicably deep the pain is. Sending my most sincere condolences.

Losing a beloved dog is so hard, even when you know you're doing the right thing for your best friend. I hope you find comfort in your grief remembering how wonderful and loving Sandy was.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to say goodbye, and even harder when it's us that has to say "when". I firmly believe that the most loving thing we can do for our furry friends is to be strong enough to let them go when it's their time. Not that it makes it any easier. I hope happy memories of your beautiful girl help heal your heart. {{{hugs}}}

So sorry for your loss. The hardest thing about owning dogs is losing them. I think they are angels that God sent to us to make our lives easier, make us laugh, and remind us not to take life too seriously. We had to put our 15 year old Katie to sleep about 3 years ago. She was suffering from mammary cancer. I held her in my arms and felt her relax as her pain went away. We do have so many happy memories of her. When she was a very young pup, she loved to sit next to my husband on the couch. Inevitably, she would fall asleep sitting there and slowly slip off the couch onto the floor. She slept in her crate with no crying from day 1. She was very easily housebroken. She was a friend to all, dogs and people alike. She easily passed her CGC.
I think that dogs go to heaven. I hope we will get to join her someday.
You will never really replace your girl, but perhaps a new pup will come along to help fill the hole in your heart. My thoughts are with you as I write this while sitting on Katie's couch.
