I do understand so very much. After it is over you cry but you come to the realization that you did the right thing no matter how painful it is for you it is so much more so for Rusty not to be able to run free. Soon he will be able to do that again.
You are a special person to put him first. Lots of hugs for you.
I am sorry you had to put your dog to sleep, but it was the right thing to do. He's now happy in heaven and thanking you for letting him go.
Thanks Comedy for your kindness. I know I will get over this with time, just need to grieve for a bit. It's so wonderful to have all you for my friends and for caring so much.
Hugs to you Aurora,
I too have a second dog and she took right over when I put my wonderful 1st dog I ever owned to sleep. The two dogs have different personalities which is good.
I have enjoyed getting use to this one sleeping at the foot of my bed. She keeps my feet warm.
Your in my prayers.Love,Kitt
Thanks Kitt for your kind words. It has helped me to have the other dog as i still have someone to love and give attention to. And this one, Ramone is a really different personality. In fact he has an incredible personality. He loves playing with toys and throws them around and looks at them like who threw that and he better go get it. He can do this for 20 min at a time. And he kind of talks to you. He has little noises and yowls that he makes when you talk to him. I know I will get through this loss - it is just going to take some time to go by to heal. All of you have been so wonderful to me and I want you all to know how much I truly appreciate it.

Thanks for your kindness Deb and Ediekristen. It helps to have so much support and from the most incredible caring people. You are right Edie about how life can be so good one moment and then be so difficult. I have always had dogs my whole life and cats too when I was growing up. You never get used to losing them as they are truly members of the family. I am grateful I still have my other dog, Ramone. You are young and so it is harder for you to experience some of these things that happen, but somehow I think God gives us strength to go on and carries us when we can't. My only family now are my 2 sons and an Aunt. I have lost all grandparents, parents and both sisters. It is important to take advantage of the good times and know that with help we can survive the down times. Deb, I am truly sorry you lost your beloved pet. It is just needing time to pass that eases the pain. And then we have our wonderful memories. I have a photo album devoted just to pictures of all my dogs. I will look at it when I am feeling stronger.Again thank you all for being so good to me. I hope I can always return the support to any and all who need it.
