I’m so sorry for your loss - she won’t suffer anymore and she left you with much Love and a ton of great memories:

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together…the Lord is Good !!

I’m sorry for your loss…

…let’s look at this from another view point, ok? You said she brought joy and love to your mom (the ultimate decision maker, and care taker of your pupper)…I believe that your mom has been watching her closely, like we all do when our pet is ill. She’s noticed the downhill slide…and probably is far more aware of what pain, suffering…and the quality of life your little dog was living thru.

Just like with people, Dr.’s say…”you have 6 months…or 1 year”…but it’s an approximation…nobody knows for sure. The Vet may have given your girl two months…only she can’t make it for that length of time without undo suffering…Your mom isn’t being unfair at all…to you or the dog. She has to put the dog ahead of your feelings, because she’s the one who is doing the suffering…mom is doing the right thing because she loves the dog…

I know this is painful…and there’s an empty spot in your heart…we’ve all been thru it, so you will find a lot of empathy here…Please read this to yourself to help you understand…read it to your mom, for it’s she who had to make the decision…it sure helped me when I had to put my first dog down…

If It Should Be

If it should be that I grow weak, And pain should keep me from my sleep, Then you must do what must be done, For this last battle cannot be won.

You will be sad, I understand, Don’t let your grief then stay your hand, For this day more than all the rest, Your love for me must stand the test.

We’ve had so many happy years, What is to come can hold no fears, You’d not want me to suffer so, The time has come, please let me go.

Take me where my need they’ll tend, And please stay with me until the end, I know in time that you will see, The kindness that you did for me.

Although my tail its last has waved, From pain and suffering I’ve been saved. Please do not grieve, it must be you Who had this painful thing to do,

We’ve been so close, we two, these years, Don’t let your heart hold back its tears

Answer #4

I know how much it hurts and I have been absolutely crushed in the past when my pets have died. I know that it’s hard, but you need to think about it from the dog’s perspective. Cancer is a terrible thing in animals and it is painful and extremely difficult to treat. If she’s been a really amazing pet, she deserves better than to have to endure that pain. Just try to say goodbye to her if you can and that would be the greatest gift to your dog of all.

Not having your pet there to comfort you, entertain you, etc is really hard of course. But what you need to do is focus on the positives. Would your dog want you to be all sad and devastated about this? I’m sure your animal loved you and wants you to have a smile on your face. Focus on all of the good times you had with your pet and remember that it will be feeling no pain. In fact, what’s happening will be preventing her from feeling any pain and you need to remember that. You wouldn’t want her to live on in agony.

She may be about to leave you, but remember that she has left behind a lot of things. She made your mother happy and your mother will not forget that and will be thankful. When I lose animals these days, I feel more honoured that I ever had the chance to call them my pet(s). Think of it like that. Everything that lives, dies… However, it is about making the most of the time we have here and together that counts. Your dog had a lot of fun and made you and your mum really happy (and did many other things I’m sure), but her time as come. As helpless as you may feel, just remember that you are doing the right thing by your pet and if she could understand the situation I’m sure she’d want this to be the decision made.

I’m really sorry to hear about this (I love animals) :(… You be strong and remember that your pet will be at peace and I’m sure she’ll be thinking about you right until the end. Just remember Sugar and all the good experiences you had together. I hope all goes well :)!

Answer #5

I’m very sorry for your loss,I know badly how it feels to loose a pet,my very first dog was put down for reasons my dad refused to tell me. Keep her in memory every day,cause she maybe gone in life but she’ll be in your heart forever and that is something nobody can take away from you. Think about all the good times you’ve had with her,nothing can replace the one dog that made you happy and the one you love so much.

Answer #6

First, let me say I’m sorry. Losing a friend and pet is difficult and it hurts like losing a human relative.

Second, it may be for the best. Your dear friend will be hurting soon and will begin to degrade slowly but will eventually painfully die. Cancer is a horrible thing and isn’t the most comfortable thing for any entity to deal with.

Mourn her death and allow her the dignity of dying without pain and suffering.

Answer #7

take the dog for one last wake, play tug-o-war one last time and say your goodbyes. :’(
