Was a sad evening for me last night, we had to put our

German Shepherd down. Her name is Nirmala and she thought we were taking her for a walk! It is so sad to put a pet to sleep. Anybody on here went through that?

I am a basket case right now! Any words you have to console me would be appreciated.

Thanks

I wish I had magic healing words. It's so hard to let them go, but it sounds like she had a very happy life with you. Your grief is a sign that you loved her well.

I know your heart is broken now. Time will help the sharpness of the grief.

And remember that there are lots of wonderful and supportive people over in DU's Pets group.

2. I am so very sorry.



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....

4. I had to do this many times. I'm very sorry for your loss. They are family members.

Im not sure why you had to euthanize your baby but I'm sure there was a good reason. At least she is no longer suffering in a any way. Im sure she felt your love while she was with you for as long as she was with you. Cry and let it all out. You'll feel the pain for a while. As sad as it is to hear these stories, in a way it makes me feel good as I know there are other caring, animal lovers out there with lots of love to give. Do you have any other animals?

14. Our baby could not use her hind legs anymore because of arthritis. German Shephard she was. It was

painful to see her walk. I know, it was not easy! The vet recommended it a few months ago but we tried with meds and painkillers. You know what hurt the most, she loves to go for walks and she thought she was going for a walk. You have no idea how much we love ou rpets!

5. I have put many pets down and had some that I should have

It has always been a hard choice for me.
I have always felt selfish when I did not put a pet down when I should have.
I did not want them to leave me.
It is said to really show love, one must be willing to let them go.
I have always hurt no matter which way they have died.
I remember them all and the love we shared.
I know the decision did not come easy to you.
Know that the pain will lessen and the love will grow over time.

38. Looks like the exact same for my dog

She is all there. Her hind legs support her, but it takes some time for to get up. It's worse when she decides to lie down on a wood floor where she gets no traction. Some days she is playful and some days she wants to be left alone. Sometimes she cannot control her bladder and leaves spots of urine where she has been resting. She is over 13 years. This is the first family pet that my wife and I have had. It's going to be hell when it's time.

7. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do.

Last edited Fri Jan 13, 2012, 01:33 AM - Edit history (1)

I had an 7 YO Golden who was a delightful dog, was a terrific pet for my young kids, and we treated him as a part of our family. He broke his hind leg chasing a ball I threw one day. But he never got better and we then discovered he had cancer in the joint. By the time we discovered it, amputation wasn't even an option, so we made the tough decision to put him down. I'll never forget the moment as he closed his eyes for the last time. It was such a sad experience for me....but I knew it was the right thing to do.

You're a good owner for taking her all the way to the end and not abandoning her to pain or suffering. Hang in there. It never gets less sad but it gets better as she settles into that place you have in your heart just for her.

to bring her up to Canada. My only consolation is that she had a good two years here.
Beautiful dog and am sure she enjoyed her last few years here but that does not diminish how much we will miss her!

All animal loving people on here, it is always nice to see how we interact with each other!

20. My eyes are welling up. I've been there.

The Power of the Dog

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart to a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.


When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.


We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-term loan is as bad as a long--
So why in--Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

22. End of Days: poem by Marge Piercy

http://melwalsh.com/2011/04/19/end-of-days-why-cats-have-it-better-than-we-do/

Almost always with cats, the end
comes creeping over the two of you—
she stops eating, his back legs
no longer support him, she leans
to your hand and purrs but cannot
rise—sometimes a whimper of pain
although they are stoic. They see
death clearly though hooded eyes.

Then there is the long weepy
trip to the vet, the carrier no
longer necessary, the last time
in your lap. The injection is quick.
Simply they stop breathing
in your arms. You bring them
home to bury in the flower garden,
planting a bush over a deep grave.

That is how I would like to cease,
held in a lover’s arms and quickly
fading to black like an old-fashioned
movie embrace. I hate the white
silent scream of hospitals, the whine
of pain like air-conditioning’s hum.
I want to click the off switch.
And if I can no longer choose

I want someone who loves me
there, not a doctor with forty patients
and his morality to keep me sort
of, kind of alive or sort of undead.
Why are we more rational and kinder
to our pets than to ourselves or our
parents? Death is not the worst
thing; denying it can be.

23. Oh, I am so very sorry for you and your family

Yes, any number of us pet lovers have been there, and it is a heartbreaking decision. In the end, it's something that is inevitably what we must decide is the kindest and most loving act for a companion who has been loving and kind to US for so long. That said, it hurts terribly, it will hurt for a long time.

My heart goes out to you. Peace, and safe passage to your girl. Hugs, and take care.

I've been through the ordeal twice now. It doesn't get any easier. But would you want it to be? I think how hard we grieve is in proportion to how much we loved them.

27. Yes I've been there recently and it tore up my whole family

We had one border collie that died in her sleep after having health problems for years. I spent the night with her after a bad day only to find she had died in her sleep. Another one died less than a year later. She was doing great one day and the next couldn't even hold herself up and her mind was gone so we had to put her to sleep. Fortunately the vet came to the house instead of us having to go to the office. Both were 17 yrs old when they died and we had rescued them when they were just puppies.

The best advice I can give is to start looking for another dog before long. You never forget the ones that came before and it's never the same, but the ones that come after can help you fill the void in ways you can't imagine right now.

hard as it is. We've had to say goodbye to our German Shepherd Heidi, Black Lab Zoe, and cats Walter and Moby, over the years. You will heal, and your memories of wonderful times spent with Nirmala will grow and become wonderful for you to ponder, after a bit of time passes.

I am convinced that the spirits of each of our beloved, departed pets somehow move into our present and future furry family members. That's how it's felt with us - wishing the same for you.

30. You're right. That last trip in the car to the vet's is the hardest.

They seem to revive a little and wag their tails 'cause they think they're going for a walk - which makes you start to re-think the choice you're making. We were there 2 yrs ago. That last ride with the family was the worst. Hugs to you.

{{ }} It's always so hard.....but try and think of the good memories you have of Nirmala and it will ease the sadness of your decision. I mourn all of the dogs that we have had to make that final trip to the Vet and intellectually I know that it was the best decision.

I still tear up when I think of my dogs and some have been gone for over 30 years. However, I smile and laugh more than cry when I think of the funny things they did and you will too in time.

I must say, I do get weepy each and every time I read a post about someone losing a pet. The loss of a GSD is especially touching as the gentlest soul I have ever known is GSD.

42. I am so sorry!

It is such a hard decision to know when it's time to let one go when they are ill. You certainly don't want to let them go, at all...but you do not want them to endure suffering either.

Having been faced with this decision MANY times, and knowing that no matter how many times I face it, it is never easy - - - the only conclusion that I've come to is that we know our pets better than anyone else, and we somehow just "know" when the time comes.

Thank you ever so much for caring for Nirmala and giving her love and a safe and forever home. I know that she loved you back, and appreciated you - even appreciated your unselfish act of letting her go so that she did not suffer. She was so lucky to have had you!

Now, I know the timing isn't right for you yet, of course, but when some time has passed and you are ready to think of allowing another furr-child into your heart, please run, don't walk, to your nearest rescue organization and let another kiddo benefit from the love and safety you are able to give. People like you are "GOLD" to people like me who work in rescue because good homes are so hard to find.

I wish you peace and comfort.

We always say that the only good thing about losing one of our kitties is that it opens up a space so we can give another furry family member a home. There is so much need out there and so many animals that need help.

50. Yes, and it is heart-wrenching.

I had to put down my almost 13-year-old Rottweiler in July of 2010. And it was the hardest thing I ever in my life had to do. She had tumors on her liver and also bone cancer. None of the pain meds were working any longer, and it got so that she could barely walk. So I had to make that fatal decision because I could not stand to see her in pain.

My heart goes out to you. It is so sad to lose a member of your family.

52. Our SOPHIE WENT TO CAT HEAVEN .... MAY 3, 2010

IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOO SAD. i still can't believe my African American Queen is not here. Soph was the best cat in the world


Akbacchus, there are no words for me to say. I am sooooooo sorry and I pray you will not suffer in grief so bad. Tears coming down. German Shepherds are gorgeous dogs and I'm sorry for you loss.

She will be in Doggie Heaven.... running after friesbies.

53. I'm so sorry

I had to put my kitty to sleep back in May. He was nearly 17 and had chronic renal failure. It was not fun, but I am glad I did it. His quality of life was very poor at that point. I miss him.

:hugs:
