Default My little friend Gino 19/7/1997-30/8/2014

Well, I had to put my little friend down today as I could not watch him having no quality life anymore. Hardest and very long decision as I tried everything and anything to procrastinate this day. He left very peacefully, exactly the way he lived all his life. We spend 17 long years together and we never left each other behind. I dragged him around the world as I am working in different countries and we have seen many sunsets together. I hope for him, that after crossing the rainbow bridge he is jumping some place happy, with other happy dogs and he has the biggest bone ever to chew on. R.I.P. Gino, I always loved you my little friend.

So sorry Gino had to leave you. I had my girl 17 years also, it's never enough time. When they are in pain, and you have done all that can be for them, when they have no quality of life, the best gift you can give them is rest, set them free. For me it was beyond devastating to be told I had to put my sweet girl down. She was dieing, I had no choice. I know she is in a better place, running free and playing with her sisters and many friends she has made. But still I have that pain in my heart. Although I did rescue a lil boy shortly after loosing my sweet girl, not a day goes by that I do not think of her. You gave Gino a beautiful,wonderful and loving life, He will live forever in your heart. Stay strong.

I'm so sorry for your loss of your little friend, Gino. Rest in peace, little one. Run free and jump in the beautiful meadows until you and your mommy are reunited again one day.

I'm so sorry you lost your longtime friend, companion and family member. Your life will have a big hole in it for a long time and it will maybe even get worse before it gets better but one day the good memories will overtake the pain of the last few weeks and months and life will begin again. You were blessed to have little Gino for so long and now he's gone on to the Rainbow Bridge where he'll wait with all our Yorkie angels for all of us to join them in time.

I am very sorry you had to say goodbye to your little Gino. Wishing you comfort from the happy memories of the 17 years you were blessed with him.

Run free at the Rainbow Bridge, Gino.

Sometimes one doesn't know what he/she has until its gone. I hate my home now as it is so quiet there. Just monotonous sound of computer, fridge and otherwise complete silence. Empty space in the corner, lots of cookies left on the kitchen counter. I get up in the morning and I don't know what to do with my time as I don't have to go out for a walk anymore. Sometimes in the past I hated it, when it was a crappy weather outside, now I would love it. And the endless state of mind asking myself questions like " did I spend enough time with him, did I give him enough attention?" One thing I was reminded of was: time is really passing by quickly. Seventeen years gone by and I don't even remember when and how. So much happened during those years, yet, it seems like it was yesterday I picked up that small clumsy puppy which ate my furniture with no mercy, peed all over my apartment and pushed my buttons every single day.( boy-oh-boy, was he doing a great job doing that lol) I am sure everyone knows what I am talking about. Then there were those active days, when I let him go of the leash and it took me about 20 minutes of running around and cursing before I could get hold of him again lol. And then that day when he was well mannered, but for some reason he did not come back when I called him and I found out he was deaf So many stages, so many memories, but no matter what stage it is, they always, everyday show one thing: the unconditional love and loyalty, greeting you every single day when you come home, happy to see you again, no matter what happens. No many pets do that, in fact, I think it is only dogs showing this kind of emotions so bluntly to the owner. I would like to advice everyone to cherish those moments fully, take photos or/and videos of them and enjoy the companion of these little friends. They only want to be loved back and they are very worth it. Sincerely,

Peter

This is the hardest time a doglover has to go through in their lives - right up there with having a sick child, divorce, loss of a job, death of a family member, moving to a new culture, going through bankruptcy. Allow yourself to grieve and experience the pain all you need to now but know that in time, the awful pain does get better and once you are feeling hope again, think about this - your precious Gino wouldn't want you to continue to live so unhappy, lonely and lost. In time, maybe you can love like that again and help yourself heal by giving a loving home to another little dog.

You are in my thoughts Peter, you sent such a nice reply to my post about Dilly yesterday, telling me to try to be happy as this is what would make Dilly happiest.

I hope you are ok. It's the most horrible time isn't it. I've been asking the same questions as you, could I have cuddled her more? Should I have spotted something was wrong with her? Did I do my best? I've been looking back at photos and they shout loudly how much Dilly was loved and cherished and I've no doubt that you loved your little Gino the same. Our little Yorkies bought us so much joy and were so loved and this is why loosing them hurts so unbelievable much. I hope you can take comfort in your memories of all the lovely times you spent together. Sending you much love. Let's hope wherever Gino and Dilly may be, they meet up and have a great little run around together. Take care of yourself.

I also had to put to sleep my beloved Chloe after 15 years on 8/26/14. She was also old and tired and she was diminishing right before my eyes. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make and the longest week of my life. But in the end you showed my the most selfless kind of love and put your pups needs before yours and I'm sure he's grateful for that. Take it one day at a time and know that soon you will think of him and smile without sobbing. Prayers to you and your broken heart ...

I went through just what you are going through, with the same thoughts,having to put my 17 y/o girl down 10/1/14. I swore no more, the pain is to intense. My house was no loner a home, like you, I hated to be there. It was all unplanned, a miracle my friends say. I ended up adopting a lil 3 y/o old lil boy 6 weeks after loosing my lil girl, who has now made my empty house a home again, filed that empty hole in my heart. I love him more the words can express, I know my Matese would not like me to be in the horrific pain I was in. He is a true blessing. Matese is with me everyday, I still cry for her, but then my new lil boy will cuddle closer to me, like to say, momma I am here. Opening your heart to a baby does help you heal, and gives a precious pup a much need home, think about a rescue that needs much love,and you have much to give. I have to in my prayers. (((hugs)))

When I lost Presley who was 17 1/2 - I was devastated. The house was empty. Even though I thought I wanted time without a dog, my heart needed to love one. So I decided to get a new one and she has helped me heal. Not that I don't miss Presley every moment of every day - it is easier to be without him with my new love, Ripley.

My heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you healing prayers.

Thank you everyone. It gets easier everyday actually. I keep the good memories in mind and if it is true that our friends are gatekeepers on the other side of the rainbow bridge as some of us are saying, then I have a excellent gate keeper there waiting for me I am not ready to invite another doggy into my life yet, but I am sure the time will come sooner or later. I am not sure about what breed it will be. As much as I would like to have a yorkie again, I am not sure if I would be comparing or not, which would be unfair to the new pup. Maybe I will go for chihuahua or some other little dog like that later on, when ready Any thoughts about that, willing to share your experience and feelings about getting a new doggy after the old friend left you?
