Thankyou everyone xx..........was an incredibly hard decision to make to have him put down, but he had massive organ failure this morning and we didnt want him to suffer anymore. I stayed with him while he drifted off to sleep, talking, stroking and kissing him.......letting him know he wasnt alone.
Our other dog Bitsey is so lost without him, she keeps wandering around the house..... so, so sad.
Crying my eyes out at the moment, but I know it will get easier with time........but havent told the boys yet as they are at school, really not looking forward to that.

I'm sorry to hear your sad news too

Poor Monty.

Sorry to hear your news Bitsey. I know from experience how hard it can be. Those that say "it's just a dog" really have no idea.

Yep, we've been through that 3 times (the last time, we didn't get to say goodbye) and it's never easy...one of my dogs legs was about to snap off, as he could no longer use his hind legs but he seemed so happy to be around us, so we tried to delay it as long as possible and cost us a bomb in vet bills in keeping him alive as long as possible.

When we put him to sleep, his father ran up to him and started sniffing frantically, while looking completely lost and laid beside him for the entire day, which was heartbreaking to say the least.

I think you have to be honest with the kids and try and talk about all the happy memories...as that always makes me smile when I think about my dogs, as well as my friends and family that have past away.

Like I said, chat to me on msn if you need to talk about it but I know you'll eventually be fine and at least you have another dog to make things a bit easier for the time being but remember that he also has feelings and will feel like he's lost his life long companion.

sorry to hear the bad news

sorry to hear about your devoted dog bitsey - you and your boys must be devasted as he was part of the family - i do know how your feeling - so sad

Awww bitsey,I`m so so sorry to hear that news. I know what you`re going through,been through it myself,it`s a heartbreak. They are part of the family. I`m thinking of you hun,and the rest of the family.

aww bitsey....sorry to hear this. it's so sad loseing a pet.....

have you read the poem.."Rainbow Bridge"

petloss.com/poe…htm

i wouldnt wish this on anyone i had to do the same thing just before xmas , my thoughts go out to you we have now got a rescued corgi who was going to be put to sleep if we didnt give her a home agin i am very sorry for your loss.

go here it really helped me has even bought a tear to my eye remembering my old dog ]http//ww…tml

are you going to get another, our gsd died last november, our 4yrold didnt get over her, so 3 months ago we got another and now our son is getting through it.

Original Poster

We wont be getting another dog, no.......we still have our Bitsey and will pour all our love onto her to get her through this too. After she has gone, that will be it for us and dogs, the heartache really is too much to bear and I doubt we would ever get 2 more faithful and loving dogs like these two. xx


thankyou for the links to the poem, but im too upset to read it right now, cant stop the tears from falling as it is, if I read that I know I will break down and the boys are due home soon and have to tell them the news x

Sorry to hear about Monty - it takes a lot of courage to take the decision you had to take but you did the right thing for you and for Monty.....if you hadn't you would only have regretted it later

So sorry to hear that Bitsey:friends:

Oh man, sorry to hear about you loss. The fact Monty passed away in your arms would have been great comfort to him.

Supermod

I think until someone has a dog as a pet they cannot understand the bond which develops between a dog and an owner.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. It must be incredibly difficult but think of the great times you shared.

My thoughts are with you and your family xxx

Aww im sooooooo sorry to hear of your beloved Monty.

I would be gutted without my 2. I hope it goes ok with you telling your children...my thoughts are with you xxx

Thanks again for all your kind words.......just had to tell the boys the sad news and they are both naturally devastated, in their rooms crying.....they both just want to be left alone right now.
