dont really know why im posting this or what exactly im looking for but tonight my furbaby cori, a beagle, was acting really sick. shes 13 years old with cancer, and was eating less and less and barely moving for the past month. today she tried to get out of her doggy bed and couldnt even properly move her legs to get to her ‘potty’ and after urinating, was too weak and collapsed in the puddle. it broke my heart how weak and sick she was. my parents just drove her to the 24 hour hospital to be put down
i was an only child so she was my ‘sister’ growing up. im so sad and its the new years, im home alone and my only ‘sibling’ is going to be gone soon. and i know its for the best since shes not suffering but i cant believe im choosing to end her life
i cant stop crying.. i miss her already

I am so sorry! We went through this in September. Our beagle/border collie mix, Sammy, had to be put down. He had a stomach cancer and was just shy of 10 years old. He was my dog, he’d always sleep on my bed. He had the best personality. It still hurts, but it does get a little easier. Take time to cry and mourn–it is a tough, sucky time :-(.

I totally understand… and it just sucks. Every time I lose a pet I swear that the pain isn’t worth it and I’ll never get another because I can’t stand to hurt that badly when they go… but you learn to love again and at some point you’ll think back with only fond memories of her life, not this one day.

I’m so sorry for you and your family. We lost our baby kitten last year.. we only had her for about 6 months but it was still really hard, I can only imagine how hard it is when you have them for that long. Our kitty had FIV and was less than a year old when she died. We framed a picture of her and lit some incense to remember her (cultural tradition).
It’s really sad but on the upside, we were able to adopt a new kitten (and save another life) from the shelter. We never would have met our new kitten had the other one not passed, so I feel like it’s a blessing in a way. You’ll definitely get through this!

I am so sorry for what you are going through. I am sending thoughts your way, it’s going to be so hard for a long time. And I’m very sorry for your loss. My freshmen year of college our family pet had to be put down, we had had her since I was 2. I am so very sorry. I hope you, in time, are able to get through this and feel better.

@sugarcube: Ohhh…I’m so sorry, hon! We had to put our kitty down in November, so I know what you’re going through. Cry as much as you want, it does help. It does get easier over time, then you’ll think of your cute litty doggie and smile from all the memories.

I’ve been through this with my childhood dog (in 2005) and the pain is just awful. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. I loved Casey so much! I know you are hurting now and it will take some time, but I promise it will get easier. Just take comfort in knowing that she isn’t suffering any longer. ((((Hugs))))

Blessings to you and so sorry for your loss. it’s healthy to get this out and glad you shared w/us.
Know she is in a better place, as pets have feelings and souls. I know this. We had to make this horrible decision last fall w/my beloved, big-hearted English Mastiff, Simon.
Take some time. Talk about it. Cry. Open up. It’s hard, but we have to let them go with love.
Just know that love goes on. Maybe in time, you could find a dog that needs you more than you need him? That’s a way of passing forward that type of unconditional love, or maybe donating money or time to a no-kill shelter? or maybe adopting from a shelter that doesn’t give so much mercy.

What a beautiful little furbaby!!! I’m so very sorry for your loss! Losing a pet is like losing a peice of your heart. It’s something that every pet owner fears and those who have lost a pet, know all too well. I know that the next few days/weeks will be extremely difficult, but that hurt will pass. It just takes a while. I grew up with 3 cats and a dog and as each one grew older and passed, I felt like I wanted to curl up and die b/c it hurt so much. My last cat to pass was truly like my sister! She was born on my couch and I had her since I was 8 years old. She was always at my side & slept with me each night. When she passed 16 years later, I thought I’d never get over it. That was about 7 years ago. I still think of her often, but it’s much, much easier now to remember all of the great memories I have of her and her whacky little ways! I adopted a rescue cat a little over a year ago and absolutely adore him. He didn’t replace Fluffy, no pet ever will, but he makes me smile again and reminds me of how lucky I am to have a great pet in my life. You’ll get there hun. It’s just going to take some time. Until then, hang in there and if you ever want to talk, feel free to message me :o)

Thank you everyone for your support, it really makes me feel better
i’m in my senior year at college and had been gone up until two weeks ago. my parents said when i was gone, she was acting really sickly but once i got home she perked up and acted normal – til now, anyway. they say its because cori wanted to see me one last time and show me her ‘normal’ self. i’d like to think thats true
shes really gone now, though. i miss her.
