I did everything I could for you but it still wasn't enough.

I held you when you took your last breathe and I knew the moment you had left his world.

I am so sorry my boy, I will love you forever and I will never forget you.

RIP sweet Sherbert.

I'm so sorry, we lost our old fella a little while back and we were with him when he breathed his last, it is heartbreaking but it was important for us that he knew we were there for him always.  I still miss him terribly but I take comfort in knowing he had a long happy life where he was very loved.

I'm so sorry for the loss of Sherbert. sad.gif

We had to make the decision to put our nine-and-a-half year old gentle giant, Sampson, to sleep last Tuesday evening after he became ill very suddenly. I honestly didn't realise it would be so devastating. My thoughts are with you.

Thanks ladies.

As you can imagine, I am utterly heartbroken.  It hurts so much and I feel so guilty but I know it was for the best.

DD (almost 3) keeps asking about him, I tried to explain it but she doesn't understand.

My 3.5-year-old son doesn't understand either. We have another dog of the same breed, and DS keeps asking if Sam is home yet. sad.gif I cried so much on Tuesday night I could not stop vomiting.

Try not to feel guilty. You obviously loved Sherbert enough to do what was in his best interest, so that he wasn't suffering, and that is the most loving thing you could have done for him.
