I lost my little Molly dog last month and I sure miss her. I had her for 11 years and she died in my arms in her 19th year of life. I stayed up every night with her those last 4 days of her life. We slept in my recliner with her on my chest. I talked softly in her ear and stroked her brow, sponge bathed her and did everything I could to calm her and let her go in peace. Dogs sure have an impact on our lives, huh? Has anyone else out there lost a beloved dog or cat?

    I did. My Sam (Pug) was 17 years old. He was so thoughtful. I awoke, went to fix his food, he was at the foot of my bed. Came back. He was cold. Called my yard guy, took him to our Pet Cemetery (Private one) and buried him in his little warm jacket with his friends, Lady, Sarah, and Princess. They are 4 legged family members. My BFF said he wanted to my dog if he was reincarnated.

      We live on an acre and I buried Molly in a special place among the pines and aspen. She was wearing her little sweatshirt and I wrapped her in her blanket when I buried her. I have since put a little white picket fence around her burial spot and put some lilies and butterfly solar lights on her grave so I can see it at night. I visit it often. It is therapy for me. I have 3 more older dogs too so I guess I have started my own private Pet Cemetery too. I dread going through this again, but I can see no other way.

    You have my deepest sympathy. I've been through this 7 times and will be facing it again within a couple of years. It is heart breaking.

      Yes. We have rescued 3 other adult dogs within the last 6 years and they are all getting up there in years. I am not looking forward to losing them either because we love them all so much.

    We lost our 12 year old Sheltie a year ago to cancer. She actually trained the remaining cats to growl when someone drove in the driveway. She was a protector and our precious family member. Shortly after, we lost a cat, Rmbo, who was a lap cat, we rescued when it was found in a truck engine in a rest stop.He likely got scared and was in a motor home. He was devoted when anyone was sick, When a growth with which he came, inoperable, took him several years later, it was heartbreaking. I took him to be put down when I could not even spoon food into his mouth, before he got his injection, he urned and put his paws around my neck and rubbed his face against mine, almost like a goodbye. I was in tears, even the vet was in tears after that. I brought him home and let all the other pets have closure and say goodbye before we buried him. Pets are better than a lot of poeple,they ask so little, but give so much love.
