    It's been 7 months since we had to put him to

    sleep. It truly was the best thing for him. Not doing it would have only been selfish and for my own feelings. I still expect to see him walking down the hall or to be at the door greeting me when I get home. I miss my boy...

    I Gave My Dog Away :(

    I recently gave my dog back to the humane society we got it from. I have been crying nonstop for a week. He had some problems that we got a trainer for, but nothing worked. I feel horrible. Anyone else had to give their dog away? I feel so sad and alone :(

    Had my 15yr old girl euthanised last Friday,

    she was on medication for arthritis and dementia but took a turn for the worst and the vet said she'd had a stroke so had no quality of life,so it had to be done for her sake,so even though it was the right thing it was still heartbreaking and all the family miss her 😞
