sad day

my sisters dog had to be put down. so sad. i remember when i had to have my cat put down, it was awful. gut wrenching. sobbing. whenever anyone spoke about him in the months afterwards i cried. or left the room. why are tender balls of fluff so emotive. these animals that cant speak, cause so much physical pain, when they are no longer here. hope hes pain free now. why dont they live longer?

Losing a pet is utterly heartbreaking. So sad :-(

I wish they lived longer too! I have two faithful loving dogs who make me smile every day. I dread that day. Sorry for you guys xxx

Hi Alice,

Sorry to hear about your loss. I love dogs but refuse to have any now because of this part of having pets. It is heartbreaking. After my two dogs died I made the decision not to have any more which is a shame because they give so much joy.
