As a dog owner this really choked me up:

It really is sad that something that becomes family have such short life spans.
I read that a few months ago, it's a good few lines. My only regret with losing my last dog was I didn't have the balls to be with her when she was put to sleep...I didn't have the balls...I sent my Missus in there to hold her tight as she went...I couldn't have done it.

[MENTION=2543]DBerry[/MENTION], nice one mate. What a little corker. Is she a Maltese terrier? How's it all going? If this is your first dog, the first year can be very tough while you try to socialise them - at times you can be pulling your hair out - but it's usually smooth sailing after that.

She's a bit of a bitzer, Maltese/Shitzu crossed with a Pomeranian. Not my first dog but certainly the first for our family. She is as naughty and cheeky as heck, I love it. We've had the chance to get her socialising with lots of other dogs regularly, she's been such a great addition to the family, the only regret I have is that we didn't do it sooner.

Well in mate, I'm made up for you and your family. You're starting out on a great journey right now.

Had to get the old girl put to sleep yesterday. Had no choice. Absolutely gutted.
My condolences. I had mine put to sleep a couple of years ago, I was fucking crushed...I know exactly how you feel. Stay strong, time is a good healer.

Thanks guys.

Unfortunately her back legs and hips eventually gave in altogether and I had to physically pick her up and take her down to the vets yesterday were i was advised that there was nothing to be done.

She had a brilliant life and was much loved by everyone.

This is when the difficult times begin when you're constantly wondering where she is and finding her toys and when she's not there to greet you when you come home at night.

The first few days are the hardest, my friend...then things start to get a little easier. You could get another dog to soften the blow (I'd bought another a year or so before my old dog passed away)...or just ride it out. Whatever the score, things will get better for you, and the tears will stop. Good luck to you.
