I grew attached to my uncles dog when living with him in America for about 8 months. I visited him about four times before, and these visits were 4 weeks staying with him. I had a great bond with his dog as I was always out home, and I was always able to play with the dog, take it out, and so forth.

Anyway, at christmas we decided to return to England to pay the family a visit (I'm living in England now, another story). Worse flight every as it was a snow day in Englad and literally everything collapses (we're totally not prepared) we got off the plan and waited around for about 6 hours in the airport. We finally got picked up, and then driving home he receives a phone call that his dog died in her sleep with the people looking after her. I poured out crying. She weren't that old, and she didn't even have any problems. What made it worse is that the day he left to drop her off with people I decided to say home. Blaaah.

I'm sorry for you loss!

I loss my cat over 5 years ago and I still miss him. He was everything to me. It hurts more with time because I miss him more with each day. I think at first I was in shock.

I went to a Psychic one time and somehow, he came up in the reading. This was so unexpected for me. Anyway, she said he was in heaven and he's my angel watching over me. I like that comment, that he's still there trying to take care of me.

We were so good together. I wish I could've had a man that loved me as much as that cat did. I'm glad I had him though. He was perfect for me.
I'm glad he's in heaven watching me, too.

Again, sorry for your loss. Mine still hurts.

Iam sorry TOomuch :(
I understand how you feel.I miss Lilly everyday and wish she was still kicking her food around.Abby and Little one don't do it, they are to not messy for that.
Its hard not to miss them.I always think about her when I go to bed and sometimes I have a tear.

I made a little R.I.P for Lilly.Can't remember if I posted it though, just for memory's.

Iam sorry for everyone's loss :( my thoughts are with you all no matter how long it has been.Our pets are our best friends and we will always love them.R.I.P to them all.

I'm sorry for everyone who has lost a pet who they dearly loved. Only another pet owner can understand!

My beloved cat Lady passed away very suddenly Aug 2009 and I haven't been able to move on or get over it since. I cry for her everyday and I just don't know what to do because I just can't feel this way for the rest of my life, it's exhausting!

Anyone else have real trouble getting over losing a pet?

I don't have anyone to talk to about it because people think that you shouldn't feel this way about an animal!! Will the pain ever go away. I have another cat, I got him April last year and I do love him of course but he's just not my Lady.

My depression is so bad and this grief on top is killing me! Not really got over losing my mum in 2005 either! OMG what a life!!

Years ago, we had our dog put down as she was sick and the vet told us there was nothing that could be done for her. She was 13 and a real sweetheart. I stayed with her until she was dead and at least had the comfort of knowing that her death was fast and peaceful even though I felt like I had handed my best friend over to a killer. I was 17 at the time. I knew then as I know today that this was merciful and letting her linger to die on her own would have been very cruel.

Thought I had got over it but when my wife and I got our dog and brought her in to be spayed 7 years ago, I started to get down in the dumps when we left her at the vet`s. My wife got scared (this was the first time she actually had a dog getting spayed), and asked me what I was not telling her. Turns out she thought this was an extremely risky operation and that the chances of the pup dying were huge. I told her about the other dog and we realized the connection. Dreary day both times. Going to the vet`s with a dog and leaving with no dog. Well, I think you folks get the picture. We ended up going out and doing errands to preserve our sanity and when I called the vet`s, just about jumped for joy when she told me the surgery went fine and we can come in the morning to pick up our pup. (she was about 11 months old at the time).
Happy to say, she`s still going strong and surprisingly has adjusted to the major changes in our life.
I love our mutts and I know for a fact that when this one`s time comes, I`ll be a mess. Hopefully it won`t be for a long while.

We just put our dog down yesterday as she has cancer. It had spread pretty fast and the vet said this was the only course of action.

We had her nearly 10 years and she was a rescue. We're missing her a lot. As for getting another dog, right now, no as it would be too early and we're going to be getting our own place in a couple of years. Better to wait. Right now, we're a mess mentally.
