Dear Brooke
Since I wrote about the loss of my own furbaby on here, I've been reading so many stories of loss and pain and each one makes me cry again. I lost my beautiful furbaby soulmate on the 13th October after he had a stroke. He went ten days and we tried everything to keep him but eventually it was obvious that it was time to let it go. It might sound dramatic but it broke me into pieces putting him to sleep. How I stayed standing to hold him while I did it I will never know. Scooby was eight. Your doggy was only six. That makes it worse doesn't it. When I read about dogs being twelve and thirteen I think (maybe wrongly) why did you get your dog longer than me? It's only because I'm hurting but you know what I mean.
So now I'm getting a bit stronger and looking at things a bit more objectively. But you won't be there just yet. I've realised the following - it's actually a gift that we can give our animals to relieve them from their pain but it doesn't make the guilt any less. They have known love, comfort, warmth and security every day that they had with us. Not all animals are that lucky.
The last thing they would want us as their beloved owners to do is be sad and cry (but we do anyway). There will come a time in a couple of months when you get through a day without crying (I promise). To get from here to there take each day as it comes. Get support from your family and friends. Focus only on good times with your beloved - when bad things come into your mind push them away. And finally know that we are all going through this too - but what a testament it really is to the loving relationships between animals and humans. Love and light to you, stay strong. - Vicky - U.K.

Brooke, I'm so sorry about your fur baby. Dixie had a blood transfusion on the 9th of Jan. I'm waiting for a phone call from her Dr. about blood test results, which I know will not be any different then Monday when they did more blood work. If all the test were going to heal her, it would be worth it but, my baby maybe going through unnecessary pain because there is no cure. Her white count was 900 on monday and her red count was only at 14 percent. I live alone and she has been my other half since the spring of 03 and my 30 year marriage ended in Dec of 02. She has filled all the emptiness I have felt, now my heart is empty for her. I know the pain is as bad as if I lost one of my children, she is my baby girl, my little honey bunny.

Hello Brook,
I have sympathy with you. It`s too painful to take this kind of decision. It is needed lots of guts. I can understand your feelings. I also want to share with you. I don`t know what to say about this matter because on 16th Dec 2011, I lost my baby girl Luana (Labra female-white) & immediately my baby boy Sherry (black male Labra) got sick on 24th Dec. 12. And since then he never recovered till his last breathe on 23rd Dec. 2012.

During those 1 month period, how my baby had suffered? This was unbearable for me. I just wanted to see him with sound sleep but he was unable to take sound sleep due to sickness. You know my babies were only 4 years of age.

During the whole night, I used to keep his head on my lap. But could not provide him comfort during the whole night. I was also unable to sleep. My days & nights were the same because at morning time, I have to go duty & in night, I was sitting with him. After watching him restless, I could not sleep.

Each & every member of my family was involved to take-care of him. Actually, my elder had kept my Luana & Sherry. They were born & brought up in my house & my black (f) Labra was their mother. My sister handed over me to take care of them for 2 years because she went for her further education & after coming back, she will take care of them by herself. She had spent only 2 years with them. So, she had planned many things for their future life.

Her 1 year was finished, but maybe God wished something else. Don`t know? But, I never ever thought that so earlier, I will lose my world. Yes, they were my world ,my companion, my friend & my soul mate & each & every thing because my days was started with them & finished with them. They were the most precious gift/part of my life. Though, 1 year has been passed. But still now I remember them without failing, because how can I forget to take breathe. Yes, they are. After them, I feel so lonely. Though, everything is around me my family & friends & others, but still now, I feel lonely without my kids. Their sweet memories are always with me & I have hope that 1 day we will be together for ever & will be never departed with each other. Hope they are also waiting for me,as they were waiting for me when I came back from duty & they welcome me at door. So, with this hope I am closing this.
Thanks.
