@Pook83:  I’m so sorry to hear about your sweet dog.  It really is so hard to lose a long time companion.  I know there is one bee on here whose husband’s father passed away two days before their wedding.

You are still going through the stages of grieving.  I promise you it will get easier with time, and eventually you will be able to look at your wedding pictures and smile.  Your dog is not in any kind of pain, she isn’t suffering, she is at peace.  Maybe on your first anniversary you and your husband can start a tradition of doing something extra special to put a smile on your face.  You did the right thing by moving forward with the wedding.  I know it’s not easy now, but it will get easier.

Oh I’m so sorry to read this.  My dog passed away at 12 from kidney failure as well.  It was unbearable.  He was a 4 lb fighter too, held on for 2 more days.  Unfortunately kidney failure kicks in unexpectantly and does so very fast.  Even if you were home for it, there was nothing you could have done to change what happened.

You will heal in time.  You will remember a lively, happy dog and the 15 years, 330ish days you had her and not the one day that she expired.  You will look back and be happy to have had a beautiful wedding day.  All in time.

Please don’t blame yourself. My parent’s dog has kidney failure too, they did everything right but she’s an old girl and at that age things happen and often very quickly (she’s still alive but who know for how long). It’s just a sad fact of life when you have an old dog. There’s absolutely nothing you could’ve done.

I am so sorry for your loss. I understand how hard it is, I love my dogs like family too and had a really rough time when our last one died suddenly.
