Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. It has been over a month now and hope that you are doing better daily. For me after the lose of Megan, I had to get a puppy in the house asap. It was the best thing for us three days of silence brought my Mom and I to make that choice quickly. Never did we think that Bizzie Boy would bring so much joy and happiness to our little family. After my Mom died, Bizz was having a very hard time. The vet told me that if I was to save him I'd either have to find another Mother or get a female puppy. So entered the family one Zoe Girl! We all are thinking of you and the love that you have for your blessed Pugsie. Just thinking of all the Pups that are waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge !!!

Thank you all for your kind words. We finally got Pugsies ashes back yesterday, he has been at my parents house for the past two weeks. He is sitting on our hutch overlooking the living room. I didnt cry when I got him back but I felt relieved. The days are getting better, I'm not crying as much. My husband and I did the RElay for Life event for the American Cancer society and we bought a luminaria bag for Pugsie and put his picture on it. Everyone stopped to look at it, every time I walked by during my 8 hour shift I said hello. My hubby and I cried and we laughed and we still talk about him. It's just so quiet without him but we are slowly healing. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and words. It really means a lot to me. ((hugs))

Sending condolences to you and your family. We lost our Roxy a few years ago and still have her pictures here and around our home. We too miss her terribly and had to make the decision to put her down. Like Baba says we sure understand how you are feeling and please lean on all of us any time you wish. It was this team that helped me during that awful time and my thoughts of her playing at Rainbow bridge and waiting for us that makes me smile.

It is not immoral not to finish a meal, but it is of questionable morality to treat yourself like a waste-disposal system.

Turtle pace will win the diet race.

I am so sorry and no one but you really feels your exact pain - My Fritzy went to the Rainbow Bridge about 6 years ago and Boo a few years before- I did not realize how my little Boston Sasha would grieve or how my cats would wander around looking - It brought great insight to me about the process and how it affected my other pets - I did get another dog or 2 - that seemed to help Sasha - especially when the standard poodle came since they have the same temperament and play fast and furious - but it is the golden retriever that gave me some peace as he would sit with his head on my lap as I cried - I won't lie - I still cry for Boo and Fritzy - but not very often - We are here for you - post your thoughts - know that we are sending healing thoughts your way !!

I'm so sorry. Our Buffee passed a year ago at 13. She had cataracts, but otherwise was still healthy. She just got slower and slower and weaker and weaker. She passed here at home with the kids and I around her. She was my first dog and I never knew how hard it could be. I'm pulling for you as you go through the grieving process.

I know what you mean, when we had to put Juliette down it was awful for us, she was over 15 yrs with us and had had some sort of seizure and nearly strangled herself in my daughters bedroom by getting tangled with an electric cord. Result was she could no longer stand, would not eat or drink, she would try to stand and only spin in circles, it happened that the transmission was out on my car and hubby's car was on the blink, so we were with out a car and we had to watch her for two days before we found a way to get her transportation to have her put down. All this to tell you My heart was breaking and I was horrified that I had to put her thru that because our finances were in shambles. I cried and cried. Crying was the best medicine, it was a hard time but as a family we got thru it and the people here on this site were so very supportive too. Then these few years later financially we find ourselves in the position that last fall I felt comfortable enough that we got another Boston Terrier puppy and she is the joy we needed after having to also put down our Boxer and the sudden death of my husband.

What I have learned is we get thru these difficult times no matter how hard they seem with the help of those around us and if it gives you comfort thinking of the good memories, I decided to take and gather some of my favorite photos of the dogs and scrapbook them, just a few pages mind you to add to the family scrapbook album, but it was helpful to know they were a permanent part of the family history.

I know you are hurting just now and my rambling means nothing, and no words really bring comfort, just know I am praying for you and you have my deepest sympathies, I do understand your pain as I have been there.

having a hard time with having to put my boston down on saturday. he was 13 and so sweet. He had a liver tumor that ruptured and he was dying in front of us. I wish I could get the vision of him like that out of my head but its so hard. It's so quiet in the house and going to sleep is next to impossible because he would lay at my feet on the bed. I miss him so much :( I hope that I will be able to function but I'm just not doing well at all. No appetite, no sleep, no energy. :( Anyone have any ways to try and cope with a tragic death? What about having another boston (our female who is 14 and blind) who is trying to cope without him around because she would follow him everywhere. Anything we should do to try and help if she gets separation anxiety?
