Oh honey, I’m so sorry.  We’ve all been thru it I think, and it never gets easier.

Many hugs.  Allow yourself to cry, to grieve.  Also, the sooner you can get it over, the better for your little friend. 

I’m so sorry………..many hugs.

Aw its the worst, Im sorry. But it is the right thing to do if hes suffering. If the vet will come to your home definitely do it that way. Been through this a few times.  Sorry for your loss <3

Sending you so much love. I grew up with two miniature schnauzers – they truly are amazing dogs. It was awful when we had to put them to rest 😞 I don’t really have any advice, other than to let you know that this is the right thing to do if he is suffering. And like PP said, give yourself time to grieve and cry. So sorry ♡

tamtam86 :  I am so, so sorry. Agree with a PP, it’s the worst. I’ve gone through it a few times myself. But it’s the right thing to do, it’s just hard to do. You mention you wonder where he’s going and sometimes I imagine something like this. All the dogs are happy and healthy. They have no pain, no aches and they are just waiting to see us again while hanging out with all their new buddies. I also imagine they are with family members who have passed. I don’t know, it kind of helps me. The thing that helps the most, unfortunately, is time. It just takes time. Take care…

I’m so sorry OP. We had to put our family dog of 14 years down unexpectedly, and it was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. The only advice I can give is to stay with your little guy until the end and hold him for as long as you need to before you have to say goodbye. That was my one comfort after we put ours down, knowing that she was surrounded by her people.

It’s going to be really hard in the weeks after he’s gone, and it will feel really weird coming home to a house where he is no longer there. What helped me was keeping myself occupied outside of the house, and really only going home to sleep. It felt too empty being at home without our girl there.

I promise it does get better. It feels like you will never get over it, but eventually the grief will lessen. Within 6 months after her passing, I rescued a dog from the shelter who has become my absolute best friend, and he helped fill that void in my heart. When you’re ready, maybe even volunteering at a animal shelter will help you feel better.

tamtam86 :  I am so sorry Bee.  I went through this with my baby boy Boomer 3 months ago exactly (April 20th).  He was 12 years old. Losing him was the hardest experience I have ever gone through, but the actual act of having him put to sleep was not hard because I knew he could no longer go on like that. It was not fair to him. I had to put my own wants and needs aside and do what Boomer needed me to do. I hope you are able to do the same for your baby.  Also, I HIGHLY recommend having the doctor come to the house.  This was such a great decision for my family. Feel free to PM mee if you need someone to talk to, or if you have any questions or concerns about anything.

Fuck cancer.
