So on Monday my parents had to have our dog put to sleep. Jasmine was the sweetest little dog and I miss her terribly! She was only nine years old, but had a condition that made walking nearly impossible towards the end. She would just fall over. She couldn’t eat, drink or go to the bathroom. I just can’t believe she is gone. Here is a picture of her nuzzled in some Christmas decorations. Christmas was her favorite time of year. She would freak out about presents and would open them herself! This is going to be a tough Christmas!

What a sweetheart. I’m so sorry for your loss, but take comfort in knowing that she’s no longer in pain. She’s in a much better place now even though that doesn’t make it any easier on those she left behind.

I’m sorry. My sister’s dog who had been living with my parents died around the holidays in 2009. It does make it harder. She looks like she was a pumpkin!

@LeahP: Aw, I totally understand. I had to put my dog to sleep the day before my birthday this year, and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It gets better with time, but it hurts like hell right now. One of my friends sent me this kinda cheesy little poem, but it made me feel better about him not being here anymore. I hope it helps you, too…http://www.petloss.com/rainbowbridge.htm What a cutie she was!

Aww this is tough. Nothing is quite like the love of a dog. She’s not in pain now, and that was always comforting to me when we had to do it.

I am so sorry! My heart goes out to you and your family. Losing a dog is devastating. Jasmine was adorable and sounded very sweet – and though it is super painful now, soon your memories of her will bring you comfort.
If you need help with your grieving process, I have to recommend the book Saying Goodbye to Your Angel Animals. Corny name, I know, but it’s a really great (and fast) read. It is meant to be used by people of any (or no) faith, and was really comforting to me when I was grieving over my beloved dog’s death this past summer.
Hugs to you!

I’m so, so sorry to hear that. I still get sad when I think about losing my childhood dog 3 years ago, the only dog I’ve ever had to have put to sleep. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. We got him when I was 7 years old, and had him until I was 20. He lived to be 13.
He was in really bad shape too when we finally made the decision, and in all honesty we may have waited a little too long. He could barely see or walk near the end. It always gives me comfort to think about how he is no longer in pain.
Hang in there, it will get easier!

Thanks everybody! Your kind words really help! I know it will get better, and her memory will certainly live on! She just brought so much joy and happiness to our lives. Such a blessing to have known her…
My little nephew drew this picture and wrote a poem for my mom. It totally made me cry!
