This past Saturday my family lost our best friend Digby. Digs was a West Highland Terrier, aged 10 1/2. He was suffering from diabetes that was diagnosed 3 weeks ago and went downhill fast. We had to have him put down. He passed away with my parents and I with him at noon on Saturday. He went very peacefully thankfully.

I feel like my heart has been torn out. I havent cried that much in my life. I look for him around the house all the time. Expecting him to walk into the room, or greet me at the door. Its just so unbelievebly hard. I miss him so much

Dear Missingdigby, you have come to the right place, many here are going through the grief that you have just experienced, losing a special soulmate pet is as bad as losing any precious human love. All I can say, for having had this kind of loss over two and a half years ago, is that it will get better, for sure. But for now, you have quite a journey to travel, when I was devastated with my grief I found that reading other stories would help, sometimes I would spend all day and night reading the stories on this site and crying along with what I would read, the tears had to come down and at the time it felt like I was etching the memories forever on my soul. I hope that your being part of a family that also grieves Digby will soothe things a bit more for you, take care and know that Digby will always stay with you and will love you from within your own heart.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Westies have huge souls in a little package.

This is I think the part that always gets us, in addition to the expected grief. It is always bad, but this is the part that can sneak up just when you think you have handled it well. I think it is the part that surprises so many of us. Even months later I thought I had accepted everything, then, for no reason at all I would go into a room, and without thinking head for the special window or other special favorite place, expecting them to be there....
