    I feel your pain and I understand the difficult process.

    Very sorry for your loss. I know the pain all too well. Dec. 24th will be the 4 month anniversary of losing my Katie.

    You did the right thing for her and I don't believe the intruder did anything too her. Older dogs get more insecure and rely heavily on the safety and security of their home. They just can't tolerate changes in their environment as they age.

    I am very sorry for your loss.

    Very sorry jojo. It's a road we have been down before also. It's tough.

    Sorry for your loss JoJo. Those of us that are blessed to be owned by a good dog, know how tough it is to say goodbye. You can bet that pup will be waiting on you and yours when you arrive at the pearly gates.

    Very sorry to hear of your loss JoJo. It always seems so unfair that our best friends' lives seem to be cut short even when they've lived a long and full life in their terms. Rest in peace Smore.

    Sorry for your loss JoJo.

    Not much anyone can say at a time like this but just remember that we are all still here for you and your local shelter has lots of dogs that need a loving home. When the time is right please consider adopting one from the shelter.

    JoJo...so sorry for your loss. It's always tough having to let them go but in the end it was best for her. She was hurting and you helped her end that pain.

    I am really sorry to hear that! We just put down our last week. We had him for 10 years and diabetes really took a toll on him.

    The loyalty she placed in you was not misplaced, as much as it now hurts. She walked the final path with you, loyally, knowing you would have the correct answer. You are the best owner a pet can have. You're in my thoughts.

    Sorry for your loss. There is never a good time to lose a companion. Unfortunately all of us that keep companion animals have gone through what you are going through. It never gets any easier, no matter how many time you experience it. As others have said, the pain will lessen much more rapidly and completely if you treasure the memories and put the last few days aside..

    I'm so sorry to hear the news. Everyone who loves "pets" hate to do it but we all know their time with us is limited. Sometimes they need our help to ease their pain. They love completely and we miss that love. It is normal. In time you will find another. Not to replace her but to continue to share the same type of love. Take care and stay safe.

    I feel for you. I'm afraid I am getting ever closer to having to make that decision again for my remaining dog.

    As much as it hurts, you made the right decision to end her suffering.
