I got Madge the Boxer about 7-8 yrs ago; she was a rescue from a breeder, weighing only 42 lbs. She was thought to be 4 +/- yrs old at the time. She topped out at about 62 lbs and was the best dog ever. Lately, she had developed problems with her legs and circulation; the vet told me there were some spinal cord issues that were not sending signals to her body, and at her age, there was not much to be done for her.

She loved my kids and grandkids, she was always clowning and gave us years of laughs. Before they gave her the injection, my 13 yr old DS put his arms around my blubbering shoulders and said, 'Mom, this is a small price to pay, doing the best thing for her, for all the years she gave us'. She died looking at us with her big brown eyes.

I am absolutely heartbroken. Will my home ever feel the same?

I'm so very sorry We lost our beloved dog (unexpectedly) a few months ago.

Does the home ever feel the same? Unfortunately, no, but it has to become a new normal. I can now talk about him without bawling, although there are times when I still cry many tears. There are still mornings when I wake up ready to check on him, come home from errands ready for him to greet me at the door and just truly miss him being a part of our family.

A friend shared this with me after our loss....

Grieve not, nor
Speak of me
With tears,
But laugh and talk of me
as if I were
beside you
I loved you so...
'Twas Heaven here with you.

I am heartbroken for you and your family. When we
put Kellie down last August I didn't think we would
ever be able to laugh or smile again. It took a while
before the tears stopped. Remember her forever, as I'm
sure you will. If your home seems too empty, get another
dog when you feel you're ready. Big hugs going your way.

No, it never will. But you'll learn how to live with it feeling different. We have had dogs gone from us for over 20 years that we still miss. But you learn to live with it and move forward. But give yourself time.
