Oh my, most of us with animals know the pain you are going through....I am so sorry you lost this handsome boy.........You gave him a wonderful life and for that you will have beautiful memories.....
Thank you....beautiful memories for sure!!
My heart goes out to you is a perfect sentiment because it does. He was a beautiful dog & he knew that you loved him. I wish I had the words to ease your pain......I hope that knowing how much he loved you makes it a wee bit easier for you ~hugs~
Thank you my dear......the bond was amazingly strong, he lay like a baby, in my arms, in my bed every morning. aahhh. My heart has been skipping beats and I cannot sleep. I miss him so.
My heart goes out to you. I have had to put 3 of our pets down, and the heartbreak is beyond description. I feel your pain and pray that a new fuzzy love out there will warm your heart in the future. Your doggie had the most adorable little face. Rest in peace dear Tikkie. Debswebster please know that you in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you.
Yes, I can relate...I had a brood of 5, all Maltese and he was the last to go, and my most precious love of all. I got a new little girl Tessa 3 years ago who has only known him..and she is lost without him now. Now she will be queen of the house.
So sorry. I lost my boy 1 and 1/2 years ago and still miss him so. We have two other dogs but its just not to same. I plan on getting another dog when my grand daughter is a little older (3 1/2 is not the best age for a small sized dog.) Best wishes for a brighter day. :)
I have another little (bigger) girl who turned 3yrs in March. My dear friend gave her to me for the purpose of being Tikkie's eyes, she would also bark loudly to tell him when it was toilet time as he was partially deaf. They were a good team. She is in mourning too and hiding under the bed, so sad isn't it? I am blessed to have her.
I am so happy to hear that you have another animal to pour your love and broken heart into......one of our cats grieved for several weeks after the loss of her big brother......your girl will pull out of it with your patience and love........
My sympathies to you. I hope the aching fades quickly and you find your heart engaged with a new love.
I have a friend who, only yesterday, homed 2 little rescues....she is pointing them my way, but I can't look as I am a total pushover!!
Oh dear, this is so sad. I can understand your decision. Had to do this for one of our cats - will never forget - but he suffered so much in the end; had cancer on his nose and he scratched there with his claws and did not know why this gave him more pain and so finally it was heart-
breaking when he cried and we took him to the vet to release him from the struggle...
Now your sweet little doggie is at rest and has no more pain. You will always keep him treasured in your memories and heart - 14 years he was your dear mate and you never will forget him. Take care - thinking of you - Maria
Same thing with my daughter's Siamese cat - he also had cancer on his nose.....same outcome too. His name was Winston, he had one blue eye and one green!
Thank you for your reply. Winston was very special then considering two different eye colours. When the nose cancer happened to our little "Tomi" the whole family was so sad and upset - imagining the cat is completely covered with fur - only the nose is not protected and here the cancer hit him. Probably you were thinking about that too
I can empathize with you, Dear. Our 80 lb "baby" died 2 years ago. We have her toys etc. displayed and still miss her. But we have wonderful memories and some day you will get pleasure from your wonderful memories. God bless. Suz
Today I washed his jacket, blanket and pillowcase for the last time; threw away all his medication and feeding syringes, put away his food bowl and wept. I certainly have wonderful memories!!
My heart aches for you.
Thank you for your thoughts
I can also feel you pain. It is not easy to say goodbye to a dear friend. 'cos that's what our pets are, true dear friends forever. Comfort yourself a bit that he 's not suffering anymore and remember all the times you had together. Hugs send.
Thank you so much for feeling with me.
So, so very sad to hear about your little Tikkie...I will keep you in my prayers...
Thank you dragonflyer, I am in such mourning today.
The loss must be overwhelming , I am so sorry!
Yes, I am half myself today..Thank you
I'm so sorry, but sometimes we have to decide what's best....even it it so hard to say goodbye....good thing: we are able to give him rest and peace after all these years of love and joy.....He must have been very happy to have you as his boss. Cherish all the lovely memories.....of your baby .
(My little dog is 14 and a half now....)
You will totally understand the love of 14 years...it's overwhelming. Thank you.
I am so sorry for your loss. That was a hard decision to make but you did it out of love for hime.
I know it had to be. Thank you.
So sorry for the loss of you precious little man, unfortunately I know how painful it is to make that decision. He can play in doggy heaven with my husky Blake Edward. Marian
Yes my precious little man will be playing away!!
I am so very sorry. The pain of loosing our pets is overbearing. Your little dog was very lucky to have you. My little Pekingese is not too well either and at 15 years I am wondering when I am going to have to make the decision. Hugs Sarah
I missed him so much today. We had a routine that I am lost without. Fed him 3 times a day and had to carry him out to toilet as he was totally blind and deaf too.
I know the pain of losing a pet. But you did the right thing. I hate to see an animal suffer. Sorry for your loss.
He never complained. He felt so safe and totally relaxed in my arms. I couldn't bear hearing his lungs crackle any longer. It just had to be.
You loved him so unselfishly. It takes courage to let them go when all you want is to keep them with you. I'm sorry for your loss.
I looked for him many times today. I sooooo wanted to keep him forever.
Oh my*** we feel the same about our boy Mr.Peeko .
May God be with you in your time of need big hus from my heart Carolyn
Sorry for your loss, this little cutie has become your guardian angel and will still share your life by watching over you. Heaven is only a memory away.
He was my angel on earth, now in heaven.
Tikki is certainly your furbaby and always will be. I'm so sorry you had to say good bye to him, but he will always be in your heart and mind. . Remember the years of memories and let them bring a smile to that sad mouth. You are not alone, but have all of the Cuties grieving with you for a beloved family member.
Thank you for caring. xoxo
As Crafter has said our furbabies are our part of our families and its very hard to say goodbye. Keep the good memories that you have of Tikkie and remember that what you chose at the end was to save more suffering for him. This is very tough though. My thoughts are with you
Thanks for the encouragement xoxo
Our pets are our family members and it is heartbreaking to have to say good by to them.It is double hard when we have to make the decision for them. Watching them in misery and pain is horrible. You did the right thing. Hugs to you.
Thank you for saying it was the right thing to do, xoxo
It is soo hard to do but you must. I will be doing just this with my 15 and a half year old very shortly. Blessings and comfort to you......
