I Miss My Dog So Much. Please Help Me.

I want to tell you all about my wonderful dog. I keep trying to write his story but it is too painful. It's been 7 months and I can't even talk about it yet. But I am cannot sleep because I just can't stop crying and I am just hoping there is someone who can understand.

Please talk to me. I miss him so much and I am unashamedly just looking for some comfort.

Pets are so much loving than humans I had to have my German shepherd put to sleep just yesterday my heart is broken I know he was in pain but I miss him so much and I would sooner have this pain ,rather than not have known him thank you for been in my life Max I will love you forever

Hi I'm Casey and my dog died at the age of 9 she was a poodle and she had tumors on her lover and spleen it has been a few months but I'm only 12 and I got over it because we have another dog and seconds we you a new one. I know we all know no other dog can replace my precious baby dog (baby IS her name not was) I truly don't think I can ever get over her death but life is life, death is death we just have to live with the truth. I will keep you in my prayers.

I just lost my dog last night.. I need help too. He was only a baby. He was so sick (blood spewing from his rear) we were on the way to the vet and I had my hands on his stomach to keep making sure he was breathing. But his muscles locked up and drool came from his mouth. I knew he had died so I pressed on his chest and tried giving him CPR. He was my everything.. I miss him so much. People say time heals wounds but I don't know if I want to be healed or anything. I love him too much.

I know how you feel. We just had to put our dog down and she was only 7 years old and had a tumor in her stomach. She was sick for 2 weeks and we waited and prayed for her to get better. But she would get better one day and then have a bad day. The tumor was too far gone to operate. They said she might die during surgery. I am so sad that she had to go that way. Just breaks me up to think she suffered for 2 weeks and then we put her down. Not a good way to die, a healthy active dog suddenly was unable to do anything. She kept going outside and laying in the bushes to die. That dog was our life, our lives revolved around her. We took her hiking for 2 hours a day every single day. My boyfriends daughter died two months before the dog did so now he feels like he lost another daughter. The dog was a big comfort to him those two months after his daughter died and then this to happen. It was all too much but we like to think his daughter wanted her dog. It was her dog to begin with but we had her for the last 6 years. It's been a month since we put her down and today I am more sad than at the time we did it. Don't know what's wrong, but I keep crying. I want another dog not to replace her, but to take my mind off her being gone. I hope that will help. But my boyfriend won't get one right away. He is scared the same thing will happen as we have heard so many stories of dogs with cancer since this happened. He said we'll get attached again and then something might happen. it's too much to bear and we are old. What if we die before the dog does? What did your dog die of??

I know the feeling, I had my first baby boy when I was 15, he lived 17 years and was the brother I always needed. 20 years later I could still tear up when I thought of him. 8 years ago I got my little girl we went to the park each day and we loved each other and had great joyous loving times, she has been gone 4 weeks now. They had wonderful lives though hers cut short and I cry as I write this. Two weeks ago I was given a 6 year old lab who was abandoned and mistreated. He is so sweet. He can not replace either of them. Each dog is there own person. Today I will go home to be greated by a happy baby, his life now filed with joy as his daddy is home. We will walk in the park and chase the ball. We will talk of my other children now gone. It is sad but they both had a great and happy life and I know I treated them well. But the tears will come from time to time as I remenis of the wonderful times and lives of my other children who made me so happy for a time, and I think of the poor life this child had before he came to live with me and share the love we all have for each other until we are reunited when my time has come.

I know just how you feel. My puppy Angelo was my best friend, always there for me, loved me no matter what. One day his Back legs became paralyzed out of nowhere so we took him to the vet and they told us that it was a neurological problem and that he wouldnt be able to go to the bathroom or walk. He loved to run and we couldnt bare to see him suffer, Angelo was only 8 years old when he went up to Heaven. I am 17 years old and i had him for half of my life, if was the single hardest thing i have ever had to do and i miss and love him so so so so much. Just think of it like this, You loved him so much that you had to let him go, just like God did with Jesus. And i know how badly it hurts right now but just know that you can see him again in heaven some day because God loves all his creations and dogs are sinless and they give you the kind of unconditional love that God is giving them at this very moment and he is happier then he ever was on earth. Look forward to spending eternity with him! And try to think if God was trying to teach you a lesson through your dog, i know he did with mine and i am a better person now because of Angelo. I am sorry and i will keep you in my prayers. please pray for Angelo also!
God Bless

hi I understand how you are feeling.
about a month ago I lost my best friend. I had him for 12 years. He was the only person in my family who could change my mood in a half of a second. I talked to him even though he couldnt understand and I could just look at him for hours just thinking how cute he was. not a morning goes by where i dont miss him. I miss him so much now and my house is just dull and empty without him.I no longer feel safe and happy I know how you feel... dont feel ashamed for looking for support. People who have these beautoful family members would understand. It hasnt been easy at all ...not even one bit. I am in the same boat as you....

I lost one of my dogs 2 years 3 months ago, he was my baby boy, he got cancer and we thought he was going to be ok but he just didn't get better. It was one of the worst days of my life but we had another dog, his mother so I put all my attention on her. I wanted to make sure she would be ok and would not die of a broken heart.

We lost her on Monday, a week away from 18years old. She was such a little trooper, and the best friend I could ever ask for and will ever have. She stayed up all night Sunday because I knew she was going, she died in my arms on Monday morning. The pain is just too much to handle. I literally have nothing now, she was my everything. Losing her has made me realise that I didn't grieve my first loss properly because as I said, I focused all my attention on my girl. The house is so empty. I know I was so so lucky to have not one, but two amazing dogs who had amazing lives. I am so grateful for that but it just hurts so much. I am numb. I miss them both more than anything and would give anything in the world to have them back.

The pain of losing a pet is indescribable. It's something you would not wish on anyone, even your worst enemy. I just hope theres a special place in heaven for them because they truly are the innocent of the innocent. If you haven't heard of it, look up "Rainbow Bridge". It's a lovely website for those who have suffered such a loss. It says that our beloved pets have crossed over rainbow bridge, into a happy and peaceful place where they will run around and play with each other until the day we come to collect them on our way to heaven. I hope this will give you some comfort even though I know nothing can take the pain away.

Love to every single one of you who is suffering like I am. I know it hurts so much to miss them so bad, but just think, how lucky are we to have such amazing pets to miss?

I totally understand.

I lost my Sterling about 2 weeks ago and I know what you are going through. He was a Korean Jindo and my Search and Rescue Partner for 12 years. He got cancer and just wasn't doing well at the end, I was with him when they put him to sleep, that was the hardest thing I ever did. I have constant nightmares about him dying, and I cry every night when I'm alone. I understand. Just know that the grief will pass, don't fight it, let it happen. It's our way of coping and healing from loss. It doesn't make it any easier, I know, but understand you are not alone. Even Firefighters cry for their lost fuzzy buddies.

I lost my sweet little American Eskimo, Maxie, this July, 13th. She was 13 years old and suffered a stroke weeks before. I was there when they put her down; through the entire thing. It was the most difficult and mind numbing thing I ever put myself through. I didn't want to have any regrets in my last moments with her. I did what I could to fulfill my parting with her, but you dont know what will do it; what will make you feel okay saying good-bye. The other difficult part was leaving her at the hospital. Not being able have her anymore.<br />
I'm 24 and I live in Manhattan, but my dog wasn't able to come with me when I moved there 2 years ago. The worst feeling I have was not being able to love her the way I did throughout my childhood for her last coming years.<br />
The best thing I could do was know that I gave her the best, most loving 13 years I could. I'm an absolute dog lover and I can see you are too. I absolutely need a dog in my life. She was my first dog at the age of 11. I grew up with her, I learned with her, I cried with her, I laughed with her and I most dearly loved her. She was everything to me and I am so grateful for what she provided. I know there will be another dog, not a replacement, another dog to share the new coming experiences in my life and yours as well. <br />
We can't always cry for their absence because they're happy where they are now. As much as I cry because of the past, it's selfish to cry because she had to go because she was in pain and is now out of it. So why should I really cry? I am sad because of the absence, but the absence will never change. Only you can change and be happy for what was; and give yourself the happiness of what can be.<br />
I am sorry you have to feel the loss of such a love. A significant love that only a dog can provide. You can make the change. I know you can.

I am so sorry for your loss. I just lost my dog Rex. He was my best friend. I was going thru a divorce. My wife was leaving me and taking my daughter to Florida from Oregon. My daughter and I always wanted a dog but only until I was divorced could we have one. We were looking in shelters and breeders when we drove by my daughter’s grade school and saw the sign PUPPIES FOR SALE. There was a family on a blanket with these adorable hound mix dogs. Rex came right up to my daughter and jumped in her lap. He choose US. When I thought no one would love me ever again Rex loved me unconditionally. When my daughter was traumatized from a family split he provided the love to help us thru it. HE IS MY HERO. My daughter and I were united a year later and our bond with Rex was so strong that we were always with him. He was always by our side. In the car, going to the store, vacations, hikes, walks everywhere. He was part of our family. He protected us, loved us and played with us. I had to put him down after 10 years of happiness. I cry about losing him at work, at home, in the car and whenever something reminds me of him. I know it will get better and I will not come to tears as often but when I do not know. Please know that there are people out there that know your pain.

I understand your pain as well.<br />
My dog passed away last October from bone cancer and I miss her so much!<br />
I think about her still countless times a day. <br />
I know its hard but I think It feels better to talk about it. Even If you cry and feel like an idiot. Its part of healing, don't feel ashamed. Its hard, one day at a time.<br />
I hope our dogs are playing together at the bridge.

I so so understand your pain and I wish I could give you a hug. Your short story just grabbed my attention - well actually I was crying for my dog too when I saw it. My dog passed away in April of last year and it still hurts so bad. Maybe you could see a grief counsellor if you can't talk about it because bottling it up like that must make the pain worse I would think. Do you have any family or friends that you could talk to? I guess time is the only medicine for us dog lovers or pets of any kind but sometimes I think it will hurt forever. Some people are more sensitive than others and grieve longer and I know that's me and it sounds like you are the same. Please write back and let me know how you are doing and I will try and send some healing thoughts your way. This may sound rather strange but the other day I was on youtube and was watching some of America's funniest pet videos and I laughed till I nearly cried. I haven't laughed like that in a long time and it felt good. Why don't you give it a try - there are so many insanely funny ones and at least you will feel better for a while.

Hi, I cry nearly everyday when I think of my dog, he was put to sleep in February. Cooper the Dalmatian. You forget then you come home and you remember he is not there. They say the pain will go away but it takes time.
