Lost a four legged friend
Had a rough last couple of days, friday my family dog of 15 years had a stroke, then about 1am saturday my girlfriend wakes me up saying that Sadie (the dog) was on the floor and couldn't get up. Sure enough, her hips had started giving out all the way, I helped her lie down and woke up my grandmother. Honestly none of us expected her to make it past the weekend, but in true Sadie stubbornness she held out. We knew it was coming, but it doesn't make it any less painful. We told my brother and he made a two hour drive in just one. When we got her, I was 7 and my brother was 6, she was with us through a lot and the house just doesn't feel the same anymore. My beagle is lost without her here, he keeps looking through every room hoping to find her. I know that she isn't suffering anymore though, and for that, I am grateful.

We lost our dog back in February, and it is still painful at times for us. We just keep reminding ourselves that it was best for her though and that it wasn’t fair to make her suffer any longer just so we could keep her around for a little while longer.
When you have a dog that impacts your life that much, it’s hard for it to go away quickly. We feel your pain and will be sending good feels your way.
Very sorry for your loss.
May the way of the Hero lead to the Triforce.

I'm sorry for your loss.
Your family gave her the best life she could have hoped for and the only reason it hurts is because of the grandiosity of that love. Keep the pain close to your heart, after a while it will be cathartic.

Sincere condolences brother. It hurts to lose a loved one, human or not, but I know you and your family will remember those 15 years for your whole lives, and she'll live on in your hearts. She had a great life, and that's a gift.
