Time. Sometimes you have to shake yourself by the neck and realize how lucky you are it wasnt you or a human loved one.
That's cold and uncalled for. Some of us love our pets just as much as a human friend or relation. To us, they are just as important. If you can't show any sympathy for someone hurting, don't bother to post at all.

Just my opinion...

Thanks for the heads up. No harm no foul....You meant it one way, and I read it another, I suppose that will happen on message boards.

These thoughts and others helped distract my mind from the horror of losing my first Golden. I'm even closer with my current Golden and fear that day.

I don't do well coping with the loss. Best for me has been to get another dog within a week.
Not a replacement.. a NEW buddy.

Default Loss of a hunting buddy.

As a dog breeder and hunter we have all gone through this and it is not easy. My wife and i raised brittanies for 37 years and with us owning 9 for ourselves we have gone through this enough. We always watched who we sold puppies to and wanted references from possible owners of our pups. We did turn down close to 10 people over the 37 years just because we did not feel as though the dog was going to a good owner. It is one of the hardest things to do for a owner of a dog or cat. I had open heart surgery and came home only to find out that my youngest dog had a growth close to her heart and a small part of it was growing on the heart itself. After 3 weeks of treatment and $3200.00 later i still brought her home in a box. Two months later i had to put her mother down because of her age. These were mother and daughter and they slept with the wife and i but were hunting dogs the next day. I can tell you something about each of my dogs and this is what i remember them for just the way they something extra during the hunting trip. We both shed tears when the time comes but just remember to think of the positive things you had with your buddy. If someone tells you they do not shed a tear then that person was not a buddy to his best buddy. Hope this helps all that has gone through this time heals and it does get better.

Oh yes we no longer own a dog i take care of the neighbors dog i don't think i could go through another one.

I stumbled on this thread and have to say what a cord all the comments hit with me. My wife and I were forced to make the toughest call of our lives December 8th of 2011. Our beloved Lab Carter who was 14 years old had reached the point where medical treatment at any expense was not going to help. Our vet who is a first class individual said to us that yesterday was his best day. Well I knew how bad "yesterday" was so the decision was made to end his suffering. It was the right decision but I felt all of the regret, anger, guilt, loss, suffering that many of you expressed feeling. I agree with everyone who said getting a puppy helps. Just bringing that light back into the home and having a sense of "normal" was a relief. A year later the loss of my buddy still hurts like ****. Nice to know I'm not alone, we are blessed to be able to feel what we lost.
