Hardest thing in the world to deal with. It's like losing part of your soul. You can never replace them but there are many out there who desperately need a home who will help you lick the wounds of that huge loss.

The time never feels right, but time is a luxury many don't have. Adopting someone and giving them another chance may be difficult at first, but they will help heal the wound and leave you with fond memories while providing comfort and joy. There are too many who desperately need a good home for us to wallow in self pity, as hard as it is to lose a huge part of your life in this manner.

You know it's the right thing to do.

So sorry to hear your sad news. Over the period 1976-2003 we had five GSDs - Targa, Big Frank, Little Mick, Sam & Wolfie. Each time we were able to give them that final gift which was so difficult to give - a peaceful, pain-free end to a life well-lived. I wept over each dog but have rarely wept over a human's death, apart from the late Mrs R.

Bob, it may help to look at the Lost Wingman thread. I hope it does.

Very sorry to hear of your loss Bob. I've been in that situation several times; the loss of the last one was the worst. Heck it's almost eight years ago now, and if I dwell on it even now, I could be reaching for the handkerchief unless I quickly take charge of my feelings ... It's OK to mourn - all of us have to - each in our own way.

I once read something along the lines of - Every man should aspire to be the kind of man his dog thinks he is.

Marvellous animals that never judge you

Had a visit today from one of my dog's friends - she used to visit most days, and was the last of his friends to see him before he went. she couldn't understand why he wasn't supervising the workshop as usual.

In the last week, two 'regulars' have headed for the Rainbow Bridge.
The first lived with a family in the Marketplace, and, although old was always pleased to see me and would drag her 'carer' towards me as soon as she spotted me - often before I spotted her.
The other, also lived in the Marketplace before moving to a newbuild house on the site of the demolished police station so I saw her less frequently.
This Bedlington terrier was totally blind but knew my voice and scent and would greet me with tail-wagging and nuzzles.
I saw her carer in the Coop yesterday and asked about her as I had been especially thinking about her the day before as a result of this thread, only to be told that she had passed-away the previous day.

I shall miss both of them, though not as much as their carers will of course.
