Had to say good-bye to a dear friend today :(

Our dear sweet Tana had to be put to sleep today. When I got up this morning, she was no longer able to walk or stand. Her back legs had given out. While I know we did the right thing for her & spoiled her rotten these past few weeks, it's still so hard.

I'm so grateful we had her for almost 14 years (she would've been 14 in Sept.) But saying good-bye was heart-wrenching.

Any prayers, positive thoughts or healing energy or strength you can muster up for me & my family is appreciated. (including my l4 y/o lab who will be missing her buddy)

  • I'm terribly sorry for your loss and am grateful that you did her that kindness.

    Just a note: Keep an eye on your lab. Dogs mourn the loss of their companions very strongly, in some cases. Make sure she continues to eat. When my lab died, my blue heeler mourned him for months and became physically ill because she refused food.

  • ((Hugs)). I'm sorry for your loss. While you can reason your sweet friend is in a better place its still hard to lose the closeness. It's been two years since we had to do the same and I still miss him terribly. Thoughts, prayers and positive thoughts.

  • I am so sorry, I know how awful it is to lose a pet. They're a member of the family and losing them is heartbreaking. You, your family, Tana and her furry friend will be in my thoughts. Take care.
