My Beloved George

Myself and my partner has just lost our 4 year chocolate lab to lymphoma. I do not understand why this happened and am trying to figure out if it was something we did that caused his young life to be ended so fast. George came into our life 4 years ago and he was the light of our life, always playing ball, taking walks and being there in the morning before we went to work and always at the door at the end of a long day. I have read everyhting I could find on lymphoma, and it still hard for me to understand. I have only had one pet in my life beside Georgie, and he lived 13 years. The last couple of days of his young life, I remain with him 24/7, laying in my lap and crying. It is so hard to understand everything that has gone on. I am trying to grasp life right now and I can not, my partner and I have split up and living apart, our baby is gone and I think it will never be the same again. His last days were very hard on myself, I read him a poem that was meant for him and hope he understood. I was holding him when he took his last breath and it was devastating to me, to know that he is gone forever

"Our Time"

Once in while ,someone comes along,who just naturally makes everyone feel happier ,a little more alive to life
It's good to say in so many words how you have made my world warmer and brighter and worth living for
So thanks from the bottom of my heart and soul for being the best Friend and champion I have had

Love  always

I'm sorry you have lost your wee dog. I'm sure you did all you could and that there was nothing more you could do to help him. I really dont think you should blame yourself, unfortunately illnesses happen and though it's really sad to lose a much loved pet there is nothing you did to cause it. I hope you can find some comfort in your happy memories of George and that as time passes your pain will ease. <br />
