Lost our dog today :o(
Sorry for your loss. Our Whinnie died just before Christmas, she was old and we knew her time would come at some point, but that didn’t make it any easier.
Do what you need to do now, whether that’s to cry, go out on the bike, or do nothing but support your family. Also remember the good times and over time it will become easier, but they never leave you.

Sorry about your lost friend. I had to make the decision to have one of our dogs put down after she had a fit a month or two ago. She was 15 and had a lovely life after being rescued from the streets of Taiwan. Doesn’t make it any easier though. Now we are just waiting for the day the other dog can no longer which at the moment doesn’t seem long away.Posted 4 years ago
So sorry chap. At least you know that when he was behaving out of character – it wasn’t really him or his fault. You have a couple of years of good memories and he had a couple of years of excellent life being loved. All dogs ask for is to be loved and it sounds like he had that.

Don’t post on here much, but read quite often.
Been a sh*tty day and I just want to unload. Our normally chilled out soppy Doberman X Lab got a bit aggressive and domineering of our two children (10 & 6) and wife whilst I was at work today. Started around lunchtime when he nipped at my son who was sitting of sofa, then showed teeth and snarlled at my wife when told off (she was sitting next to my son at the time).
He continued showing teeth so was put outside, then would growl when my wife tried to go out to him. She thought something wasn’t right so booked a vet appointment to have him checked. I came home early afternoon thinking he might just be trying to be overly domineering. He’s just two and occassionally would try and be second in the pack if I’d been at home on holiday from work for any length of time, but never aggresive or showing of teeth. Anyway he was fine when I got home, just wanted to play ball etc…
I put a mussle on him (borrowed from a neighbour) for my wife to take him to the vets, whilst I worked from home looking after the kids, we just assumed they might do some blood tests or something. Half hour later my wife called in tears saying he had to be put down, he’d had a large brain hemorrhage with blood on the brain. Vets said we were lucky he didn’t lose control and go for one of us.
We got him when he was 3 months from a rescue centre and he loved being out in the forest, walking, running, biking and playing ball with the kids. Absolutely gutted…Posted 4 years agoJoeGSubscriber
OP – I feel for you. It sounds like you gave him a great home, and did the right thing in not prolonging his suffering.
If the house is too quiet, why not consider adopting another? Of course he won’t be the same as the dog that you lost, but will have his own personality. I’ve never had dogs, but always cats. Whenever I lost one, I have always adopted another the next day. For me at least, it really helps to have a new one to occupy time and take my mind off of the one that is gone. And it makes a spot in the shelter available, too.Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
almost cried reading this, terrible terrible news. They become such huge parts of our lives that we’re never ready to say good bye but when it comes at a time that you’re not ready for and so much earlier than it should of been.
You’ll never forget him but things will get easier.Posted 4 years ago
