Man's Best Friend

Post by Triela on Tue 4 May 2010 - 0:22

Where you can post if a beloved pet dies.

I know I posted this in the chat but I can't shake the feeling that there needs to be a thread for these kinds of sympathies.

Buttons, a 13 year old Border Collie was put to sleep around noon yesterday. She was my sister's dog and we've had her since she was 11 months old. She developed liver disease and it was failing and began to infect her other organs. My sister made a very hard and brave decision to finally put Buttons to sleep. I don't know if I could have done it if it was Classy... Just thinking about it is making me cry. Since I'm away at college I didn't get to say goodbye...

Buttons was a very kind and gentle dog. She loved other animals (especially hamsters) and loved to take car rides. If it wasn't for her I would never have wanted to get a dog of my own (my Classy). She even started to eat squares of American cheese because it was Classy's favorite special treat. She and Classy have been pals for over 10 years. Since Buttons has been gone for a long time Classy is searching everywhere for her.

I put together a short video. (And I did a lot of crying while making it) Most of the clips are from the dog park my mom and I went to over my spring break not to long ago...

I'm very sorry to hear that. Buttons looks happy & healthy in your video, and that tells me you & your family did what they needed to give her a good life. That's all any animal ever really asks of us.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I haven't been happy all day and it's hard for me to even crack a smile. I know once I go home and see Classy I'll feel a bit better. She's my dog and she's not gone so that's my bright side to this...

My sister is looking for another border collie. I hope she finds one soon! It'll be weird not seeing that fluffy black and white ball of fur in the house...

Thanks Sakura and T-Chan! We all still miss Buttons. My mom even says that when she and my sister call the dogs to come inside they absentmindedly call Buttons' name. My sister emotionally needs another dog. I have Classy and my mom has Skywalker. That's why tomorrow this puppy is flying in from Kentucky to be part of our family.

Today, the day before my birthday Classy wasn't herself and my sister brought her to the vet. The vet said that her body was shutting down. Since I only live 30 minutes away I was able to get picked up and go to the vet. Classy wasn't on any life support or medication but she was holding on, waiting for me. When she saw me her eyes lit up and she looked at me.

I decided to put her to sleep. She died while I pet her and told her I loved her. I didn't even realize that she died. She looked alive. I stayed with her for a long time after she passed.

I've had her since I was 8. I love her. My life will never be the same without her. I loved taking pictures of her and I wanted to get some last photos of my baby... She's so cute.





I can't believe this happened... I can't stop crying. it was so sudden... I'm going to miss her so much... I hope she and Buttons are together again.

Oh God... poor gal!

For what it's worth, it sounds as though she died content, knowing you were there with her... I know that decision couldn't be easy to make - I've had to make it myself, so I feel your pain...

As you said, she's with Buttons again, and the two of them are doubtless nomming on some cheese squares and sharing stories, over the Rainbow Bridge.

If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
We'd troop right up to Heaven and bring her back again.
When family chains are broken by loss, nothing seems the same;
But as we are called back one by one, those ties will link again.

Her paws will be wide open, Tri
And the wait will be worthwhile,
When you see again your precious pup,
And the splendor of her smile...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, Triela. You have my deepest condolences. It's no secret how much you loved your dogs, and the pictures you've taken with them let the love shine through even through the computer screens through which we see them. I wish you the best, and I am sure Classy is romping with Buttons in a better place.

Thanks for everything you guys. Your words of love and encouragement really mean a lot to me.

If not having this pain meant not having Classy I wouldn't do it. I loved this dog, knowing she would die some day. I'm glad that I didn't take one day with her for granted. Wether I was at school without her, or she was sleeping right next to me at home she was always in my thoughts. Now that she's gone that still hasn't changed. I say goodnight to her when I go to sleep and I greet her when I wake up. Even though she's not with me I can still see that little ball of fur right next to me with that little face starting up at me. I know she'll never truly be gone from the mark she left on my heart to the fur she left on all my clothes.

I hope one day I can give my love to another dog and change their life as much as Classy has changed mine.

Like many here; I know personally the pain of losing such a companion. For weeks I would hop over the last step to my backyard because that's where Smokey slept and spent his days doing what he did best.

But sometimes, they let you know that they still love you. Like when your feeling lonely or sad. Or when your frustrated and stressed out. Sometimes you'll feel a faint brush against your hand or small warmth at your side. That's her letting you know that it's okay; that everything's going to be alright.

The love you two share will assure that she's never truly gone.

My little Indiana passed away today. I stayed with her the whole time and I made sure she could see my face as she passed.

I already posted this on my fb, but I feel that it best illustrates my feelings.†

Words canít express what a loving and wonderful dog she was. She was so unlike a sheltie, so accepting of new things and people. She was like a cat and would rub against your legs when you pet her. She loved coffee and cheese. She was a model at SMB Studio Arts. She would stare at you if she wanted something (once she literally stared at me for a half hour till I turned off a fan that she didnít like) She loved Linkin Park and her favorite song was Burn it Down. She loved to play and run after her pal, Hermione.†

Most of all Indiana loved me, wholeheartedly and unconditionally. I loved her and she loved me, maybe even more!!! She was my buddy and my best friend. She would actually howl when she missed me for too long. She would snuggle with me at night when we went to sleep and be creepliy staring at me when I woke up in the morning. I donít know what I would have done if I didnít have this amazing, smart, loyal and happy dog in my life. For the two years we were together we loved and lived a lifetimes worth. I love you Indiana and I always will.†



Also I have to thank you all for helping my raise money to get her. I know I have to get back to commissions!! I promise I will.
