Three days ago, Lacey passed away. I can’t get over it. There were warnings signs, like loss of balance and then losing control over her hind legs. About an hour later she made noises and then had a loss of bowels in the kitchen. I yelled at her and put her in the litter box. A few moments later she fell to her side. Never got her chance the to stand ever again.
I became scared. I was panicked and cried. A few minutes later she died in my arms. I am in grief and hurt and angry. No, I am pissed. At the unfairness. By the way, she was 18 years old. Still the pain was like a dagger in the heart. I will her so much. She was skin and bones but very sweet. I love her still. Not sure I will get over this. Sorry for errors, but I have epilepsy and typing is horrible.
R.I.P. Lacey. We will meet in heaven.

They become so close to us, a part of us, that the grief is certainly real. I’m am very sorry for loss!
Thank you very much.
Thank you! I don’t know what to say.
It really is a physical pain. No matter how you rationalise age or infirmity – letting go HURTS. I wish I could tell you some magic words that would comfort you. It’s truly so very hard saying goodbye.
Yes, you are correct. I am very nevous because I put her in the litter box to help her go, she tipped over and fell on her side. I was so stressed and asking her not to die.
There’s nothing you could have changed, it was obviously her time. It’s natural to feel guilt because we wanted the outcome to be so different, we just WANT there to be something we could change. At least you were with her, she wasn’t alone bless her.
Thank you so much!
I echo the sentiments mentioned above, the hardest part to sharing your life with furry family is having to say good-bye; perhaps you can create something to celebrate Lacey’s life & her bond with you. When I had to say goodbye to my 8 year old Newfoundland I made a memorial video set to the music “Into The West” by Annie Lennox…it was very therapeutic and I know he will never be forgotten! Prayers for you as you grieve and heal.
Thank you so much.
Still to this day! I love Lacey!!!
Right now, I am not trying to dwell on the death, but not her life. Stil;l grieving at this time. Thanks very much.
