Default Rough day today...

Had to put our 12 year old Golden down today...although it was for his own good, it's still a shitty feeling. It's gonna be a rough couple weeks until we get halfway used to him not being around.

Sad to hear. It's a great feeling coming home to someone who's only goal in life is to greet you with a wagging tail.

Really sorry for your loss. Been though this in the past and it's an awful feeling. But you have to do what's best for your dog and you did. Time will heal the wounds.

We had to put our Golden down two years ago due to cancer, then three weeks later we picked up another one from a rescue to fill the huge hole in our hearts. Sorry for your loss and you did the right thing. Time to rescue another one !!!

They love unconditional

Thanks everyone. As I'm sure most of you know it just sucks walking in the door and having that "oh..he's not here" moment all the time.

We put our dog down a year ago. I still miss her. My wife found solace in this poem:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Though it's a very tough thing to do, you did the right thing.
