    we had to have our beautiful dog Oscar put to sleep yesterday as he was diagnosed with kidney disease three weeks ago and it got him very quick,for the last few weeks we tried everything to get him eating all the renal foods from vets all home made etc..but nothing worked he just would not eat and lost two kg in weight in two weeks and yesterday started moaning and shivering badly so we rang the vets and they said the kindest thing was to lay him to rest as his last bun levels were so high even after iv fluids.he was our life he was nine years old and a foxhound cross by a whippet so one of a kind and was the most kindest and well behaved dog you could ask for we all have cried so much as we miss him and are really struggling to come to terms with it god bless him.gone but never forgotten ever.

    So very sorry to hear of your loss. They are such a big part of our lives and family, it is so heartbreaking to have to make the decision even when we know that this time we just cant make them well again and it is the most kind and right thing to set them free from anymore pain and suffering.

    Such a range of emotions hits you all at once, its so hard to cope with, you also feel that you are never going to ever get through it, but you will you just need time to allow yourself to adjust and grieve properly for him. It will although it doesn't feel like it now get better.

    I'm sure that Oscar had a wonderful life with you and that he also left knowing how much he was very loved.

    May your spirit run forever free in sunshine Oscar.

    Its not something every one feels they want to do or may need, but Blue cross have a Pet bereavement service, you can email them or talk to them and they will offer support in your loss, there are also helpful leaflets and information that you can download and that can sometimes help with how to cope with your loss. If you feel it is something that you may want to do or may help if you feel you may need it, details are on the link. The service is entirely free.

    Many of us have lost dogs on the forum, so we do understand how you are feeling, so please don't feel you are alone.

    Our memories are something that nothing can ever take away. Although remembering times is painful at first and brings tears and sadness, in time you will find that thinking of him and the memories of what you shared instead of bringing sadness and tears, will be remembered with a smile again even though it wont do at the moment.

    I am glad too that you think contacting the Blue cross service may help you.

    thankyou he was a very handsome boy one of a kind foxhound x whippet with the best character and love for us that had no bounds,when I got up in the morning to go to work he would always give me a great morning welcome and when I came home also.i would dance with him to music and he would spin in circles to the music,the house is just so quiet and empty just so hard to believe chronic renal failure got the better of him in just three weeks,it has devastated our lives.
