On the 14th of October, something sad happened to one of our beloved family members. Our dog (a black lab/pointer mix) that we have owned for over 18 years, passed away in the morning. Her death did not only affect me, but everyone else in our family. We were all incredibly sad that she had to go. We knew that this would happen at some point, but we didn't expect it'd happen so soon. She was definetly a one-of-a-kind dog; she was well behaved, loved by all the children in the neighborhood, playful, and always put a smile on our faces. We were able to give her a proper burial, a lovely funeral, and even made her a tombstone. She was truly that special to us. It's been over a week since she passed away, and things have been a little dull. No one to greet you whenever you came home, no one to walk with whenever you wanted to do some excercise. I'm still sad that she's gone, but at least I know she's gone to a better place. I've shed my tears for her, and now it's time for me to move on. it's what she would've wanted. I'll miss you, girl. Rest in peace.

it's always sad to lose a pet, especially if they've been with you for a long period of time
It always sucks to lose a pet. I remember when my first cat died it was sad, but we kind of knew he was going. In a weird way, we were almost a little relieved when it happened because it meant he wasn't suffering anymore.
I agree, if an animals suffering, it's best to let them go. Keeping them alive for your own selfish reasons is cruel, but understandable, no one ever wants their pet to die. However, in my dog's case, she was healthy and died simply from old age, so it wasn't so relieving, but no one can live forever, so it was acceptable.
I'm really sorry to hear about your loss.
