So I've been a little MIA lately, and things have been super cray cray over here. H and I decided to start looking for a condo in Chicago after finally deciding to put down some roots here, so I have been on zillow approximately 20 hours a day, so alas, no time for knotting.

This is a stressful week for me- work stress, hours of studying a day for my licensure exam, and we're leaving for a DC/NYC trip on Friday afternoon. Anyway, my mom called on Sunday to let me know that they are planning on putting our dog to sleep this week. Tomorrow afternoon. It's been something they've been considering for a while, but now it's time. He is a toy poodle, 16 years old. He's lived a fantastic life barking at passersby and playing with the neighbor cat. He's old and tired and hurting, but it's just killing me.

And I can't be there because of the distance and leaving to go out of town and not having any more vacation time I can free up. I'm just heartbroken. This week is just so intense and busy and now this on top of everything. My darling hubby is fantasy drafting tonight and I'm just sitting here while he's doing that trying to drink myself into feeling better.

I'd love any support you guys have- but no puppy gifs please. :-( I haven't really talked to anyone about this in my real life other than my family and H. I just need someone to whine and cry to. Whine.... Cry...Insert all of the drinks into my mouth.

Etf: typos. Maybe I *am* drunk

  • Oh I'm so sorry. =( <<<<<<hugs>>>>>>> It really sucks when being a responsible grown up keeps us from being able to be there for our loved ones, especially when it is a fur baby.

  • Oh I'm so sorry. :( it's so hard to let go of a puppy (they're always puppies), especially when you can't say goodbye. My mom had our dog put to sleep while I was out of the country, and I didn't know until after. So I know how you feel. Just know that she's doing the best thing for him so that he can stop hurting.

    I can't gif from mobile, but all the wine and panda hug gifs for you!

  • I am so sorry.  Losing dogs majorly sucks.  We had to make that decision a few years ago, and it was just brutal.  We would try to turn on the TV and forget about it, but it seemed like every single commercial had a fucking puppy in it.  It was FI's black lab that he got when he started college, and he would torture himself by watching videos of black lab puppies and bawl his eyes out.  He cried for almost a week.  The only other time I have seen him cry in all our years together was when we found out the dog was sick because it had a seizure.  God, he loved that dog.

    I am sending you virtual hugs and all the wine.  Time and booze fix everything ;)

  • I'm so sorry. That's so hard to do, even when you know it's for the best. 

    Love and hugs. And cranberry vodkas (or... whatever you usually like best...)

  • I'm so sorry you're going through this. While I've never been in the situation where I couldn't say goodbye to my pet, I can say that putting down a pet is truly heartbreaking.

    *hugs*

  • I knew this was going to be about a furbaby. I'm so sorry about your dog.
                       
  • My heart breaks for you. I had to put down my Emma 3 weeks ago. Despite frequent vet visits we didn't know she was sick. I was inconsolable for the first 4 days. I felt so silly being so upset but I couldn't help it. Today would have been her 11th bday. Thankfully I realized this towards the end of the day. Try and remember all the good times. I'm here if you need to talk.

  • I'm so sorry. My parents had to put down one of our dogs a few years ago, and I couldn't be there to say goodbye, either. It was so hard. I hope you have a great trip this weekend!
  • I'm so sorry! When we had to put down the dog I grew up with, I cried my eyes out. I totally understand. It's like losing a member of the family. I'll be thinking about you. 
  • I'm so sorry. I haven't lost a pet yet but can't imagine going through that with our pooch.

    On a brighter side, excited to have another knottie in chicago!

  • I've always thought as pets as family members and it never easy to lose a family member. I am so sorry your are dealing wiht this on top of the stress you already have. I'll be thinking of you and your family. 

  • I am so sorry about your loss. We had to put down our 13 year old dog last summer and it is so hard! It sounds like you are doing great with remembering what a great dog he was and appreciating the full life he had. That's all we can hope for! It was my family dog that H never got to know too well so he was supportive of my pain but overall wasn't there too much for it.

    Then about 6 months ago his family boxer (7 years old) got cancer and they couldn't do anything to help him and had to put him down. H called me at work that day bawling his eyes out and apologizing to me for not being more supportive when I went through it the previous year. Of course that was the furthest thing from my mind, but its so hard to understand the pain and loss you can feel from losing a pet until you experience it for your self.

    So again my thoughts are with you during this painful time and soon you will be thinking back on the happy memories with a smile.

    Pets are family, and there's absolutely no shame in grieving them as such. I'm so sorry you had to go through that.
