My best friend has passed away...

Yesterday was one of the worst days I've had in avery long time. I woke up about 7:30am and smelled something funny, of course I knew it was diarrhea. So, I had my boyfriend go downstairs and let my dog Cookie outside, while I cleaned up the mess. He yelled up for me and told me to come down stairs now, so I did. There was my Cookie, she could barely stand and she was swaying back and forth and finally just fell down. I layed with her on the floor has her breathing became very labored and told her everything was going to be okay. She became very agitated, jerking back and forth, so we moved her to the couch, where she calmed down with her head on my lap, and took her last breath. It all happened so fast, I had no time to process anything. She was the best friend anyone could have, how to you go on with out that anymore? I swear I still hear her, and everytime I think I do, it makes it that much worse. I miss her.............

I am so sorry for your loss. You will always have those happy memories. She is now peaceful and happy at the bridge.

Oh, how awful for you and your dog! Not knowing what killed her must be the worst. I am truly, truly sorry to hear your bad news. The only comfort I can say is that at least your dog wasn't alone when she passed.:sorry:

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose a beloved family member. Even though it may not seem like it now, it does get easier with time. Everytime I've lost one of my precious pets, I still felt their presence days later. I would still expect them to greet me at the door when I came home. This is part of the grieving process. Eventually, the good memories will flood your mind and replace the sad ones.:grouphug:

I'm so sorry for your loss! It's so hard when they die unexpectedly like that. It does get easier, especially if you have another animal to help you through it. There's a void left when an animal leaves and in my opinion, it can only be filled by another animal (humans just don't do it...).:grouphug: :grouphug:

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, it happening so quickly must have been a shock to you. I use to think that I seen my dog Travis after he passed away in different places that normally were his favorite. I think its is normal, and maybe a little of us wanting to see them. Who knows maybe its their spirit letting us know that they are ok.:angel:

Finding this place months after I lost Kenny which was also my best friend has helped me a great deal and I hope it does the same for you...
