Aww. So sorry about that. I still grieve for the dog I lost 24 years ago. I went to the beach the other day for a walk and my sister came with me and I was reminiscing about how I would let my dog off her leash and she would run like a maniac on the sand bars all happy and free. Her name was Bear and she was a German Shepherd/Collie mix. Beautiful dog. Every time I go to the beach I like to think she's there, having a great time.
I know you'll feel this one for quite some time. Pets always have a special place in our hearts and minds. So sorry.

He probably did. He had health problems and he was 14 years old which was old for a Yorkie. I'm sure he was lonely the two last months. His brother was really sick for the last few months of his life. Teacup could sense that Munchkin was sick and pulled away. We knew Teacup had health issues but he was the same old good boy, just a little slower. But then he was picking at his food for a day or two and not eating much. When my ex got home from work on Saturday he was too weak to bark and could barely stand up so she brought him to the vet. They told her that two of his organs were failing and he was in a lot of pain. It was so quick. Three days before he was outside rolling in the grass. When she saw him lying there and moaning in pain she knew it was time.
I'm not sure which was better. We had time to prepare with Munchkin. He was sick for months and we knew for weeks it was getting near the end. He was just getting weaker and weaker but never seemed to be in pain. Teacup was much more sudden. He looks a little down for a few days, which he's done every once in a while since he was a puppy. And then suddenly he was gone. I'll miss the little guy.
