Today, 2/24/15 we crossed our beloved yellow lab, Holly, to the rainbow bridge.

I don't know what we will do with out her as we have had her for 13 years until bone cancer destroyed her. We loved her with all of our hearts and she was like a child to us and sister to my daughter. My heart is aching right now.

I know it was the right thing to do as she was in tremendous pain. However, I am devastated. How can I go on without her?

She won't be waiting for me when I come home wagging her tell and barking for me. My home will be so quiet.

I am just so sad and want this pain to go away and for her to be hear with me.

Your sad loss

Holly, you did the best thing for her and she would have known that - dogs have a sixth sense. I feel for your pain - I know what you are going through as I lost my dog to a car accident and cried for weeks carrying her collar on the strap of my handbag. Then all of a sudden I decided to get another pup to fill the void - give me a purpose. I still miss my girl but the pain is minimal now - I look back on the good times and smile when I think of her. Fill the void and get yourself another companion. Feel blessed that you were able to send her to the doggy paddock in the sky and not have her lingering here to die a horrible death like we do.
Good luck - I will be thinking of you.

My 14 year old golden retriever is about to cross that bridge. She is not in pain..but has an inoperable large tumor growing on her rear right flank..oozing blood and various yucky discharges. she can no longer get up..she just lays on the floor. I have to lift her rear half-she is 80 lbs-and have someone lead her front half, to go outside to pee. she is eating and drinking a bit. but she looks up at me with her same beautiful golden face,,greeting me as i go by. how can i do the thing that needs to be done?
