Default Said goodbye to an old friend

I had to put my old friend to rest this weekend.
She wasn't just a pet, she was part of the family.
Here I am, a 45 year old man, holding her while she passed crying like a baby.
Rest in peace old friend!

The bond we share with our pets is an intense one. Made even worse by how short their lifespan compared to ours. I know how you feel and hope you can find another to fill the void left by her passing.

Sorry to hear that. But I can tell you your not the only adult to cry when the time comes. Sometimes the right decision is the hardest.

Been there. Sucks so bad. Truly man's best friend. Whoever came up with that phrase hit the nail on the head.

So sorry to hear this. You did a very kind thing though, and to cry over a lost friend is nothing if not human.

I can't stand to think of the day I have to make this call for my two pups.

My condolences. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do was to make the decision to have my first dog put down.

I get all choked up reading these threads of the loss of a best buddy. They're just such pure souls and demand nothing of us except a bit of love and attention... and treats.

I'll raise a pint in you and your friend's honour this evening and to all our best buddies.

Sincere condolences here too. Pets are more than just pets - they become a part of your family. I'm not ashamed to admit, tears filling my eyes right now. I'm sorry for your loss.

If Only They Could Talk,
All Creatures Great and Small,
All Things Bright and Beautiful,
All Things Wise and Wonderful,
The Lord God Made them all.

I believe an English poem, and also books written by James Herriot, an English Veterinarian and author.
