My Content
11 Jun 2006
I've been reading all the different messages, they have made me cry, they have made me understand that I am feeling normal things and I have a new outlook on getting a new dog. I know everyone grieves when they have lost a pet, but I have just been on an emotional rollercoaster the last 2 days.
My husband went to let Abby inside and she was just lying outside the door barely breathing. We knew that if we left for the emergency hospital that we would probably not make it. I think we were right because she died a short time after we found her. I keep trying to tell myself we made the right decision. She died with me holding her on her bed in the living room. I feel so guilty because I feel like I missed the signs that she wasn't feeling well. She was an older German Shepard. She was having trouble getting up and looked a little depressed. I passed it off as maybe she was having hip problems, since that breed is known to have that type of problem. So needless to say I have a lot of guilt and just ashamed that I didn't know.
We are moving in a couple of weeks. I feel like leaving this house that I am leaving her behind too. This is where I have memories of her. I am very sad that she isn't coming with us to our new home. We were looking forward to giving her acreage to run and a brand new house to live in with us. It is just not going to be the same moving there without her.
I am waiting to get her ashes back next week. My 4 and 6 year old are having a hard time understanding the whole thing. My 4 year old thinks that she is coming back from the vet.
Our house seems so quiet without her. I still have her things around the house, but I have to start packing for the move. I'm just really dreading taking down her leash. I know the pain will lessen but I have never been this upset over a pet dying.
I really want to thank you all for having your messages up for others to read. It's very helpful.
