    Hey everyone, I was just hoping to get some much needed prayers for my broken heart. I lost my precious Pug on August 31st. She was the best friend a person could ever ask for. Just an ideal dog from beginning to end. She was 15 and she died peacefully at home in my arms. I had taken her outside but she would barely walk, then I saw her sort of melt to the ground and I sat down beside her and loved on her before picking her up and taking her inside to lay her on her vent that she liked to cool off on. I laid on the floor beside her and she lifted her head and laid it on my face. Then she picked her little head up one last time, laid it on the floor and took her last breath. I had prayed and prayed that the lord would take her naturally with no suffering and by his grace I was at home to hold her while she left this old Earth behind. She was there for me through my divorce, through the death of my mom, through every hard time imaginable. She was an easy dog. Happy and healthy till the very end. Her little body just wore out. I’m having a really hard time with the silence in the house. She was all I had. Now it’s just me and my broken heart. I don’t want anymore pets. It’s too hard to say goodbye.

    My sweet Rosie The first pic is younger days….the second is an hour before she passed. I knew she was leaving me.

    Oh Dana, I’m so, so sorry! I can feel your heartache in your post and my heart just breaks for you. Giving you just the biggest hug right now, and lifting you in my prayers. It’s so hard to lose such a loved member of our family. While it was comforting to know and feel you there with her as she passed, our sorrow when they are gone cuts so deep. I’m sure I join all of D-Cot in wishing you easing of your pain, we are here for you! :heart:

    Thank you so much. I haven’t been able to get over it. I’ve cried every day. You don’t realize how much of yourself is tied up in them. Every time you move you are aware of where they are. To have a shadow for 15 years and then one day, nothing. It’s too much. No matter how prepared you are, it doesn’t make any difference at all.

    They leave a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. It’s been three years since we lost our first cat and my wife still can’t talk about her without tearing up. Never diminish her importance and what she’s meant in your life. And never let anyone tell you “it’s only a dog” or that you should grieve in a certain way or ever be over it. You take as much time as you need.

    Dana, words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss :( I am a fur mama myself so I can sympathize with you. My heart hurts so much for you right now. I’ll be praying for peace and comfort for you as you adjust to life without your precious baby girl.

    Dana, I am so sorry to hear about your pug. Your story broke my heart.

    I had prayed and prayed that the lord would take her naturally with no suffering and by his grace I was at home to hold her while she left this old Earth behind.

    I’m glad you were able to be there with her till the end. From all of us at D-COT :dcot: , we hope you find peace. :heart:

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Dana :( Losing a pet is one of the hardest things we have to go through in life. The love they give us is nothing but pure, unconditional love from the very start. They become family to us, and it definitely leaves a huge hole when they have to leave us. What a lucky girl Rosie was to have such a happy and loving home in the much too short time she was with you! :heart: Sending lots of love to you and keeping you in my prayers for healing and comfort! :heart:

    A Song Of Living by Amelia Josephine Burr.
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.
    I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.
    My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed.
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

    I have kissed young love on the lips, I have heard his song to the end,
    I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal hand of a friend.
    I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort of work done well.
    I have longed for death in the darkness and risen alive out of hell.
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

    I gave a share of my soul to the world, when and where my course is run.
    I know that another shall finish the task I surely must leave undone.
    I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod.
    As one looks on a face through a window, through life I have looked on God,
    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    (Sorry For Your Loss.)

    Ugh! Sorry for your loss! We went through the same thing a few years ago… waited 4 years before we got another dog… after we got him, we wondered why we didn’t get another “loved one” sooner… They are a gift from God. I can tell you have a lot of love to give… please don’t shut yourself out from getting another “Loved one”…. they need us just like we need them…. You have my prayer and condolences ❤️

    Archie and Daisy send you hugs

    Well I had edited my post above and it disappeared. What I wanted to say was Thank you to all of you for being so supportive. All of the things I thought I wouldn’t miss, like her high pitched bark in the mornings while she waited impatiently for her food, or rolling right out of the bed into the morning weather. Those are the things I miss the most. There’s no greater sadness than rolling out of the bed and onto the couch. I tried to remember as she was getting much older, to stop whatever I was doing when she came over and wanted attention. What I wouldn’t give to have that little paw on my arm while I’m trying to type :( Thanks again for letting me share her with you all. She was everything to me. Now I hope the other post doesn’t magically show up saying the same stuff. lol

    Oh Dana my heart feels for you. Sending you just the biggest hugs. We lost our Kona in May and it has left a giant hole in our lives. Everything you mentioned is so true. All the little things that made her your baby. I hope in time it gets easier to think of her with all you happy thoughts. This is Kona the morning we were losing her. They love us to the end. I wish I could say something to make it better. :heart: :heart:

    Right before we lost our first dachshund to cancer (Aug 2018), I ordered this book (below0. It is a very easy read, however it took me weeks because I could barely read through the tears. He was a rescue we’d had for nearly 6 years…and he was almost 16. 14 months later we lost our 2nd dachshund at 17.5 yo. She was with us since she was 8 weeks. We don’t have children, so she was our queen and glory…our little boss lady. And I have re-read the book; because you forget. Do not deny yourself grief. Grieve how it feels right for you. Talk to Rosie-she can hear you. Be in tune to anything she may be sending you. We have a digital photo frame on the fireplace and it is filled with hundreds of photos of our dachshunds traveling everywhere with us and all sorts of silly moments and sometimes I can just sit and watch it, ignoring the tv. yes, it can be sad. Yes, I cry. but sometimes I smile and laugh and talk to them and “remember when…”. The year before we lost my female, in Nov 2018, she stayed with us at Fort Wilderness cabins on our way down to my in-laws. It was a nice time and I tried to capture Disney moments for/with her. She could still walk a little on her own then. I have not moved her things. Or his. they are here. Everyone must move on in their own way and their own time. 7 days before we lost her, our new dachshund rescue arrived. I think she knew it was okay to move on after that. My girl was very tired. She could only walk with her Walkin’ Wheels the last 5 months. And it had been a rough couple of years for all of us. She was a diabetic for 3 years. She had doggie alzheimer’s and had forgotten how to do a lot of things. The new little buddy helps us a lot with his energy and youth. But we still talk to our little angel paws. The new buddy will not go in my male dachshunds Mickey Mouse Dog House. He won’t. So that little house sits there as it did, on the final day just over 2 years ago. I don’t mind.

    I bought my copy of the book I am recommending for you on Amazon. My cousin bought a used copy. I had a copy sent to close friend who has lost 3 pups in the last few years. Here is description: “The Pet Loss Companion is a wonderfully reassuring book for anyone who cares about pets. It is a loving book, full of personal and practical details about how to care for oneself after loss. The authors are sensitive pet-lovers, empathetic and engaging in this moving and meaningful book. ”

    Hugs to you and feel free to private message. Maybe these message will help someone else too shy to share their grief.
