My boy Lou died unexpectedly...
« on: August 27, 2006, 05:18:04 am »
Well, I was thrown for a loop. My rottie/lab mix, the healthy one who's never had an ailment in his life, died. We found him in the morning on Friday, August 25. We do not know what happened; we are still in shock. Our hearts are broken as we prepare for the excruciating next turn in which we must help Greta.  :'(  :'(

I am broken and will remain broken for a while. I am glad he shared his life with me, but I am having the hardest time coming to terms with his unexpected departure. I feel guilty and I'm beating myself up about what I should have done.  :'(

Please don't blame yourself.  I think sometimes they just decide it's time to go.  I'm so sorry you are grieving and I completely understand! :'( :'(

I am so sorry for your loss.  Sometimes there is just no explanation for these things.  It was just meant to be.  I know that is no comfort, but please don't beat yourself up about this, there was no way you could have known.

Godspeed, Lou.

Oh Moon! Words can't express how sorry I am for your loss. I know you must be devestated as is Greta. We'll be here with you every step of the way. Let us know if you need anything. Remember though, Lou is looking down on you from high above protecting you as he always did.
Hugs,

Moon,
I am so sorry to hear about Lou's passing. In the grieving process you will always have a period where you feel you could have done more, but you should not blame yourself. Sometimes it just happens. Allow yourself to be sad, but also remember back on the good times you had together. Look at some old pictures, think about the good times, share a story about Lou with friends, and hopefully, in time, you will smile again when you think about him.

I am so sorry to hear about Lou. :'( Sometimes it is harder on you when they leave so quickly. He lived a good life  and was loved much. Do not feel guilt, we all have to leave this Earth.
