I went through the same thing last year. I went out the next day and bought everything I needed to make a scrapbook of him. I work on it a little at a time when I found myself missing him. Very therapudic. I didn't realize how many pictures I had of him. Sorry for your loss.

Be careful who you talk to right now. Some people don't get it and they will actually make jokes about it. Share your grief with other pet lovers only.

dude, that sucks. I lost mine almost three years ago, and I'm just now ready to have a furry friend again. I wish those guys would live for 50yrs. Hardest thing ever to watch him walk away from me, knowing he wouldn't be coming back.

Sorry buddy. All you can really do is hold on to the memories that you have and know that your dog lived a wonderful life with a great owner.

I'm prepping for it. mine is 16, deaf from a stroke a couple of years ago, and blind in one eye.
Arthritis is a problem, and it's not getting better.

But the minute I feel he isn't enjoying life, I have no problem putting him down. I may cry, but
I couldn't imagine keeping him alive if he was in pain.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

I am doing a bit better today, hopefully it gets a little better every day.

Awfully lonely in that house by myself though.

I shouldn't have opened this thread......

My German Shepherd is only 3 but I've already thought about that day. It's going to be terrible. I've went to some funerals in my life but I think that day may be the worst yet.

Some people can't even understand the bond.

Sorry to hear of your loss. There is not a better friend than a dog. Losing a good friend is such a hard thing.

Sounds like you gave your dog a very nice life. Hope you can find comfort in that.

A bit of followup.

That guy loved to get on my bed, he wasn't allowed, but if I left the door cracked even just a bit, he was in that bed. I guess it smelled like me and was crazy comfortable. But whatever.

After I brought him home, I immediately took the sheets off my bed and wrapped him in them. Took him to our beach house and got some lumber. I built him a really nice casket, and buried him by the waterway wrapped in my sheets and in the hand made casket.

I will be having a brass nameplate made and will be attaching it to the house above where I laid him to rest.

Food bowl still has food in it, his bed is still on the floor. Thanks for listening, it helps to read through this thread.
