I had to put my dog down today

I cannot believe I don't have anyone to call and cry on their shoulder about this. She was my husband's very first pet, ever. 16 years old, she travelled the world with us. It was time for her to go (as a matter of fact, hubby waited a day longer than I would have). C'est la vie. But a few tears are going down the cheeks. Her daughter was confused for a little bit, but seems OK.

Oh Claire I'm so sorry. I'm going through a grieving process too. We can use each other's "virtual" shoulders if you want.

I'm sorry to hear of the loss of a loved family member. I'm sure her quality of life and prognosis for improvement must have been bad, but that doesn't make the loss any less.

I'm so so sorry Claire!! It's so hard to let a family pet go. I'm glad that you have her baby though.
You'll always have those memories of traveling with her.

My dear Claire! Im so,so sorry its the hardest thing to lose a good friend it brings back the sadness of losing a few good canine friends of my own
Even though we know its enevitable it is never ever easy.
Rest assured that your pal is OK and waits for you.
Goodness! Im so sappy every once in while I cry years before my pets may go cause I know it will happen someday, cause I love them so much.

(((Claire)))... I am so sorry!! But just know that she had a lovely, happy life, and she is in peace now, watching over you guys from up there. Some day you guys will be reunited. It is a comfort that you still have her daughter with you... she must be feeling lonely too... be there for each other! And we are here for you!!

Claire, I'm so sorry; we're going through a similar situation with one of our dogs, and it's so very hard. Trying to remember the happy, healthy days.
