I am so sorry. I know how it feels to lose a beloved pet.

Bo Bo lived a long and happy life because of you. It still doesn't take the pain away and for that I am very sorry.


I'm sitting here crying. My dogs are young and healthy and I fear the day when they're not. All I can hope is that at the end, these beloved pets understand how much they mean to us and how much comfort they have provided.

For BoBo's sake, I hope the sunspots in pet heaven are large and warm...


Oh, I'm so sorry. I had about the same experience with my little dog. She was with me for 13 years and had as many last names as I did. I also had to make the choice for her. It was one of the hardest and most compassionate choices I ever had to make.

She had a great life and so did Bo Bo. You saw to that. And as the love of her life, you gave her a peaceful passing.

Wishing you peace.


I'm so sorry. I love my pets and am completely disraught when one of them passes.


Oh, I am so very sorry that she is gone. I'm glad she had such loving parents.


I'm so very sorry.


I am so sorry for your loss. You did everything you could for her for as long as you could and I am sure she knew that. Just reading this tells me she could feel your love until the end. I am wishing for you peace and healing.


I'm so sorry. My cat is elderly and I'll be starting IV fluids with her soon. I've been preparing myself for her death for years,
but somehow you never are really ready.

I'm glad her passing was quiet and that you got to be with her.


Oh, my heart is so weary for you. Bo Bo was so lucky to have you in her life. I am so sorry.


I am so sorry for the loss of Beau. I work in an animal hospital and it always breaks my heart when an animal has to be put to sleep. You can always tell the owners who considered thier pet part of the family rather than just a cat or dog. They are the ones who grieve and have the hardest time knowing when is the "the time."

I had to put my own little guy, a very small yorkshire terrier, to sleep recently. I prayed over him and held him as he left this world. We bought a kit that can be used to make stepping stones for your garden and we made one for him with his name, Jacob, and a stained glass "yorkie" on it. It is beautiful.

We moved from the house where he was buried but we brought his stone with us. We think of him constantly and all the joy he brought to our lives in the 13 years we had him.

I hope and pray for you that you will be able to hold onto the memories you shared with Bo Bo over the years. Our pets are part of our family and when they pass they leave little paw prints on your soul that will remin forever.



Reading that brought back all of the pain I've been trying to ease since my cat got lost last month. I'm so sorry your baby is gone, but I'm glad that you were able to be with her in the end.



my beloved doggie is 12+ and healthy now but I know the day is coming eventually and I can't even think about it w/o breaking down.

what a wonderful gift to give your friend such a peaceful end.

thnking of you +++


I lost my beloved dog Bandit in March. We had to make the horrible decision to put her to sleep. I had her for 17 years so I can feel your pain. You did the best you could. You gave her a wonderful life and a dignified death. You saved her from more suffering. My heart goes out to you and I will keep you both in my prayers


My heart aches for you. You're a good Momma; plain and simple. I'm crying. G-d bless you and Bo-bo. She knows and she's safe.


I am so sorry. She was loved deeply and that counts for a million.



I am so sorry to hear of your kitty. It is like losing a member of the family. so so sorry.....


I am a lurker and not a poster but I am sitting here bawling my eyes out for your pain, for Bo Bo and for myself. I have two fabulous 2 year old beagle mixes who are the first pets I have ever had. I got them for my 40th birthday after IVF #6 failed. I needed something to love and they came as a package from the Humane Society. I can't ever imagine my life without them. So my heart is breaking for you. Hang in there.



Thank you for sharing this. What a loving little kitty. What a loving pair of parents.

Thinking of you.


I am so sad and sorry for your loss. I am not an emotional person... but I actually had tears running down my face while reading your post. Thank you for sharing such a painful moment... I have 3 wonderful kitties, and I know that when I get busy I take them for granted... today I will make some extra time to love on them.

Rest in Peace BoBo.


I am so sorry that Bo Bo is gone. Your post brought tears to my eyes. I hope her sun spot will always be there to bring you smiles and memories of her. And just so you know, you did a very good and loving thing by taking her to the vet to help her go. We chose not to take our curmudgonly old cat, Gris-Gris to the vet when he was dieing of kidney failure because even near death we knew he'd hate the car ride and the vet. But the last few days were very hard for him and for us. We kept hoping he would go peacefully, which he finally did, but not before going blind and being unable to get up at all. In the end, we weren't there when he went. He died in his cat bed (we think one of our other cats was near), by the window, hopefully in a sunspot. Now we have a second cat with kidney failure. We're giving her sub-Q fluids and she eats a special diet. I hate to think of her end and hope that it's at least a few years away. She loves sun spots too.


I am so sorry for your loss. What an incredibly loving and beautiful tribute you've written to Bo Bo.


I'm so sorry about BoBo. Finally got around to reading this whole entry--just couldn't do it before. I have a cat like BoBo who I am very close to. I hope you are doing better.


I realize this is a little late, but I just ran across this post. I can't tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Losing a beloved kitty is just the worst. You and BoBo are in my thoughts.
