Such a sad loss, I really feel for your family.
I am always humbled by the love and trust that comes from an animal that has had a tough start to life (we have a rescue dog)
After the grieving, enjoy the happy memories, it’s what Sena would want
So sorry for your loss. Before we got our first dog Sorrel, almost 11 years ago now, I couldn't fully understand what a blow the loss of a pet could be. So many of my dog-walking pals have lost dogs to accidents, illness etc and it’s devastating.
I dread the day when I will have to say goodbye to my girl but if when that time comes she goes as peacefully as Sena I will be grateful.
Hugs to you all.
So sorry to hear it but I prefer that scenario where he has died happy in his sleep.
We had 2 old boys die in my arms after a walk and I was glad they went that way, our current little man is giving us regular tearful interludes as we see him slipping slowly away with lung cancer and trying to decide when the time is right.
I’m so sorry and sad for you all, Sena looked a very handsome boy. Big cuddles to your son, I can remember vividly the loss of my first pet as a child. I hope in time when the pain eases you will remember all the great times and love Sena gave you.
I started this thread with the words "
Not sure why but would just like to share the passing away of our dog."
I thank you all for your replies, I have tears in my eyes as I type this and appreciate all your comments and shared experiences, It has been a difficult time for me and the family and your support has been very welcome. Now I know why I shared, again thank you so much.
I think in a way you and Sena were very lucky. Five times now we've had to struggle to decide if we were keeping our loved ones with us for their sake or for ours. Always a terribly difficult decision which never gets any easier. We try to consider their quality of life, but I'm sure we've sometimes got it wrong for selfish reasons.
