Last Thursday evening, my wife Karin and I made the painful decision to euthanize our little girl Sophie. She had just had her 15th birthday May 19, but her health was quickly deteriorating the past two months - Her hip arthritis was spreading to her lower back, she lost her sight two months ago and  she's been having difficulty breathing due to constricted airway passages and life-long allergies. I thought getting ourselves mentally ready for the most difficult decision every dog parent would make would ease the  pain - Far from it. Several days later, I find myself still crying, still devastated, still grieving. She was my everything. I miss her so much. She was such a loving, intelligent, affectionate... Best dog  I've ever owned. God I miss her  so much...

I know how much you must miss your precious girl Sophie and how difficult it was to make the decision to let her go.  It is the most difficult decision many of us have to make in our lives.  You gave Sophie the gift of love by releasing her from her pain.  But now you and your wife are doing the suffering.  That is the trade off we make when we deeply love our precious fur babies.   You are experiencing the normal grief that follows.  There is no short cut through it.  But you have come to a place where kind people will understand what you are going through and grieve with you. Please stay with us and write as often as you like about your feelings, the joys and sorrows of  your life with Sophie or whatever you feel like expressing.

Thank you Patsy. The hole left is the worst part. Not see her when I come home.... She knew exactly when I came home and greeted me every single time... That's the worst. I've been reading how other people grieve, and it's somewhat comforting, but nothing can neutralize the loneliness and pain. But I sincerely appreciate your kindness.
