Unhappy RIP Addy... :[ - March 25th 2009, 09:08 PM

Hey THers,

My beloved Great Dane of ten years just got put to sleep yesterday. I'm so upset... she was one of my best friends, and I went through so much with her. She just kept getting thinner and thinner and sicker and sicker, and it was horrible to watch her. She didn't have any quality of life - she was never happy anymore. So I know she's out of her misery, but at the same time, I still can't imagine life without her, you know?

peace and love

Awwuh. <3

My cat, Kinton, is my absolute world, and I can hardly cope with the idea that he's not going to be here, in physical body, forever, but sometimes that's what's best for someone, and sometimes loving someone means letting go. Still, I'm sorry for your loss, as I'm aware it's not at all easy, and I understand what it's like to not be able to imagine life without someone. But for as long as she lives on in your heart, she will live on with you. That's the thing about our loved ones, they never truly die, not in spirit, not in heart, not in mind.

Hugs to you.

I am so sorry and I think I understand. :[ my puppy was put to sleep on Friday. I didn't have any idea or expect it at all until I came home to a puppyless house.

Oh gosh, honey, I'm sooo sorry! I know what it's like to lose a best-friend/pet! We had my 1st dog before I was born and had to put him to sleep when I was 14. It was incredibly hard. It's been over 2 years now and I still get sad when I think about him. But try to think of all the good times and fun you had and how much you loved him! It's hard but you'll get through, I know you will! *hug!*

Hey, Anna.

I can't express how sorry I am for your loss. Oftentimes it seems that people downplay the loss of pets--but they are family, like the people in our lives, and losing them can be devastating.

Sometimes, at night, I wake up and think my cat is on my bed. It's almost as if I can feel her walking towards the pillow, like she used to when I was sick, and it takes a moment for me to realize she has been gone for years now. I guess what I'm getting at.. is that it's okay to be hurt.

I wish I had more to offer you, Anna. Take care and let me know if you need anything at all.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
