Sometimes I'd I wonder how I would deal with an inevitable day like today, and I must say I'm a lot worst than I thought I'd be, constantly fighting back tears which seem to come in waves after periods where I think I'm OK. I think it'll take a while for my wife and I to adjust.

Poppy had a great life, and was a wonderful companion. Rest in peace, my little furry, fluffy friend.


So sorry to hear mate.

We lost a beagle to a heart murmur, we were unaware she had any issues until we saw her "frozen" on the back lawn one day. The vet said we may have missed these episodes whilst we were at work or just inside and didn't see them. Despite going onto medication she succumbed to it, we were there at the time which wasn't something I want to experience again.

RIP Poppy.
PAFC. Forever.

Sorry to hear mate, dogs love us unconditionally, it's not hard to feel such a loss and feeling of emptiness when they pass away.

Poor Poppy :( Sorry to hear Magellan, was she an only child or does she have a brother/sister that will be sad too?

Makes me feel even worse for the absolute bake I handed out yesterday morning to my missus' dog after being busted scavenging out of the bathroom bin. Felt bad immediately and apologised as I fed her and left for work. Come home yesterday to be greeted like nothing had happened.

Sorry for your loss Magellan

Sorry to read this Magellan, I can't help but get a little emotional reading this as it reminds me of our previous family dog suffered a similar fate. He had bad arthritis in his back hips and it got so bad he could no longer walk. It was awful watching him deteriorate like he did and I still vividly remember dad and I taking him to the vet to get put down.

Just such a sad experience to go though, commiserations.

Sad to hear about your hairy barker, @Magellan. They really are a part of our family.
I took our 13 year old Kelpie to the vet last year as she didn’t “seem right”. Twenty four hours later we had her put to sleep. Major jolt to our system.
RIP.

Thank you for the kind words, everyone, I really appreciate it. We don’t have kids, so the dogs take on a more significant role in our family unit. Today was a very, very difficult day, but i know things will gradually improve as each day passes. Thanks for reminding me that I’m not alone in feeling down.

Thanks FC, she has a sister (Molly) from the same litter. She’s in pretty good nick at the moment, but at her age you never know what might lurk around the corner. The last day has taught us to make the most of life.

Anyhow, she doesn’t seem to be too upset at the moment, they’d sort of grown apart as they grew older.
