Having a pet is something that fascinates us, they fill us with great joy from the first moment they arrive at our home, we are fascinated to feel their company and watch them do their pranks around us.

Many people who have pets, love to have them since these animals give us unparalleled love, they are a tenderness and we love that this is so, we feel very good in the company of our pets.

When we are alone, pets accompany us, they are always our faithful companions in good times or in bad times they are always with us, we like it that way since we feel supported by something.

When we lose our pet it affects us a lot and it is that many say that it hurts too much to lose a pet that for so many years we have been with her and that we have taken care of her and she has been our faithful friend.


It is very likely that at least once in your life you have had a pet, that you have loved it too much, supported you and accompanied you in your worst moments but you must say goodbye to the least expected day.

Many people say that a pet is happiness, they are angels in the form of pets and they always accompany us and love to do it as we also love them to follow us.

Losing a beloved pet hurts too much, much more than people think it hurts, many underestimate the pain that can be felt by losing our dog friend or our cat or any other pet we have ever had.

To verify this, a study carried out in the Department of Psychology of the University of New Mexico in the United States asked many owners how they had felt after the loss of their pet and many said that the pain had been very deep.

Another university but in this case in Hawaii, not only confirmed this fact but also said that the pain after the death of a pet is usually much longer lasting than the pain we feel with the loss of a loved one.

Many today say they have suffered a lot for the loss of their pet and that often that pain does not compare with the loss of a loved one.

    We had a pet dog from a puppy to just over 12 years. He developed cancer in both back legs and the Vet prescribed strong pain killers for him. It got progressively worse so had to carry him outside to do his toilets, which eventually started hurting him, we had to make that horrible decision that nobody likes to do, to put him to sleep. He was an inside dog and he went everywhere with us which made the decision even harder. We took him to the Vet who administered the final injection, in a matter of seconds it was all over, he was gone along with the dreadful pain he had endured. We took him home and buried him in our front garden, that was over 8 years ago now and we are still not over him not being inside the house or going everywhere with us in our bus/motorhome. He is remembered by us every day, as we still talk to him as if he were with us still (sounds crazy, but that’s how we deal with him not being physically with us). We could never replace him with another dog because to us he was not replaceable. RIP Blackie ❀❀

      So sorry for your loss of your baby. I too, just had to put down my Duchess (14) on April 18th and Tinkerbell (10) her daughter last November 2nd. Very heartbroken. I too, talk to them both. I have even resorted to hugging a stuffed animal at night to help me from missing Tink who used to sleep next to me.

    the one who wrote this has definitely not lost a loved human relative, ever. Pets are adorable, we love them, but let’s not compare our parents with them. Let’s just not get too high on this, we might overdose.

    I recently lost my best friend and companion to bone cancer. It was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made – when to let her go. I felt I was letting her go to soon but at the same time I was watching her horrible round in extreme pain. I am going through very similar emotions I did when I lost my husband many years ago. It is a very painful loss when you are the one having to decide what day to let go. It’s not a decision we normally have to make with our human companions.

    My daughter had to let her furbuba go on the 28 December 18 , he was a white westie who was so loved, and my daughter and me and his granda were with him to say goodbye, even writing this I still can’t believe I won’t see him again, but I know he will be waiting and watching for us when our time comes, and when he sees us his wee tail will be wagging like crazy , Sergi Campbell we love you so very much xxπŸ•πŸ•πŸ’™πŸ’”

    I had to get my very best friend cross the rainbow ridge last Monday 24/6/19
    My heart is broken into a million pieces. Everything reminds me of her 😭😭
    Louise was a gorgeous chocolate Labrador. She was a rescue dog from a puppy farm, she was locked in a cage for 6 years, just to breed from her. Louise had no social skills, she kept her head hidden in a corner to avoid contact.
    After sharing lots of love, cuddles and time together, she became a social butterflyπŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹ She loved meeting new people, especially ladies, she loved her walks, she loved meeting other dogs
    I took Louise to the vet on the previous Friday as she had developed a cough. She was checked from top to bottom, heart strong, lungs clear, everything perfect until the vet looked down her throat. The soft palette in the roof of her mouth has collapsed, there was no hole for her to breathe through at all. Too old for surgery, she would die on the table. OMG, not what I was expecting. I took her home for the weekend only to return on the Monday 😭😭😭
    All my love to everyone who has lost their precious pets, I know how you feel πŸ’”πŸ’”
