Mocha 7/7/91 -- 10/25/2005

We had to put my beautiful girl to sleep last night...... she had been fighting chronic renal failure for too long. I wanted to stop before she quit 'having fun anymore'.............

 

I have had her since she was 4 -- and she has been one of the best dogs in the world. A total people hound -- she preferred the companty of humans to other dogs. She *lived* for lure coursing -- it was the only time we ever heard her bark! Affectionate and full of love to the very end -- always ready to lick your face with stinky love.

 

I guess I came here to find people who understand.......

 

I am a vet -- I do this all the time................. but this is different...... she was 'broken and I couldn't fix her' according to my 5yo daughter.

Sorry to have to welcome you to Greytalk on such a sad occasion.

We certainly do understand your loss, grief, frustration at "not being able to fix her". I can only imagine that as a vet, that could be even more difficult to swallow. Don't let any "shoulds" get in the way of your feelings. No matter how many times you've dealt with similar situations at work, etc. is is just not the same as losing one you love so much. Mocha was a member of the family and always will be.

My thoughts are with you. Mocha was a beautiful girl and she will always be with you in your heart.

Hugs to you.

:f_white:grouphug It is a very sad way to be introduced to the GreyTalk community, but you will find lots of wise words here to help you with your sorrow. I've never lost a grey, so I can only imagine the pain, but I'm sure as time passes you'll remember all the wonderful years you had with her. I'm sure you did everything and more that you could to help her. My heart goes out to you.

My condolences to you and your family for your loss. I know that in time the pain will be replaced by the joy of your memories of Mocha. It is the greatest gift of love, and the toughest, to let them go with dignity. But know Mocha is running healthy and happy at the Bridge. You will meet again.

 

Run free, sweet Mocha. Say hello to Mason.

Sorry to read about your loss. She was beautiful, and obviously very much loved. I have all the respect in the world for the work you do. It can't be easy. And when it's one of your own animals.....I'm so sorry. :grouphug

I'm so sorry. :f_pink

 

Mocha was beautiful .. .I lost a lovely white girl to kidney cancer a while back. Such a horrible thing. We thought she just had age-related renal failure for a long while. :(

 

No matter if you're a vet, it still hurts when it's one of your own beloved dogs. :bighug

We do understand. Many of us on Gt have lost our beloved grey babies. I just lost my11 year old a week ago. I am so very sorry. She was such a beautiful little girl.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear sweet beautiful Mocha. Many of us here can certainly relate and share in your pain. It's never any easy thing to go through that's for sure. Take comfort in the fact that you did the very best for her and most importantly she knew she was loved.
