    Just had to say goodbye to our darling Dolly dog this morning. Vet said that he thought she had a brain tumour on top of all her other health problems. It's been very difficult coping with her for the last 18 months so we are now going to see what life is like without a dog. Having had dogs for the last 13 years I'm not sure how long I'll last though. It's all very strange.

    Moist eye moment here, sharing your thoughts

    You do know you have done the right thing, so much nicer than having to watch them suffer

    As for another dog, you will if its right, when its the right time

    So sorry to hear this. We are still undecided to have another after 2 years. We would always make comparisons.

    Nothing to add really, it's hard and yet you know it's the right thing to do.

    Horrible news. Try not to focus on what happened today, but remember the love you shared and the good times you had.

    Feeling your pain. But what a lucky dog to have had the good life you gave her and took care of her right to the end.

    It's never easy to make that decision but it's one made from love. I had the pleasure of Dolly's company at the Lincolnshire show last year. She was a very sweet girly.
    RIP Dolly, run free sweetie x

    sending you a hug. Three years down the line is still not the right time for me and I doubt it ever will be.. Miss my little one so much still.. You will know what is right for you. :(

    Really sorry for your loss, We're dreading the day when it happens to us as our Jack Russell is going into 14years old.

    For all the good memories pets give us there is always that heartbreaking moment when the time comes to say goodbye. We've never been without a dog, 4 in 45 years of marriage and the loss never gets any easier. Feeling for you.
