R.I.P. Cheech

October 28th, 2007 at 04:30 am

After an agonizing couple of days, I made the decision to put my little Chihauhau pal down yesterday morning. He was the best dog I've had the pleasure of sharing life with. I am grateful for the almost 10 years we had him.

I'm exhausted, but feel better now, after having made the decision and being without him.........than having him home and failing so quickly. What a week.

Being an animal lover, I can't imagine my life without a dog, so I'm waiting for the day I will get a new pal. Have to wait to see if we're moving first...wouldn't be fair to a dog to move here.....then move again.

So, I'm in that horrid state of thinking I hear my dog, or sense that he is around; all the while knowing he is no more. Only an animal lover who has lost a pet will understand this. I haven't been without a pet for hmmmm....25 years maybe?? I am pretty sure I haven't sat down here at home with out my dog on my lap for the last 10 years! I either need to not sit down or quickly get another dog!

Week end young man is here; fortunately he hasn't mentioned there being no dog here. I'm not sure I could hold that conversation if he did bring it up. Still a mess emotionally ......just pretty good at holding it together.

Sent moms tenants notices we were putting the property up for sale. Promised to honor leases and provide excellent referances. Commercial property will be listed as of Monday. Moving along on our plan to off load the real estate.

    Oh, very sorry. For a while there will be an emptiness that your mind insists on filling with Cheech. Yes, I know that sense of him being just over there in the corner, or right outside the door, ready to zip in on a hot day, or oops I dropped a bit of cracker on the floor and Cheech will be zooming in on it....Only, not really....It's been years since my last dog and I am surprised at how happy it NOW makes me feel to hear a dog of his breed baying or barking in the neighborhood, or to see one snuffling along in the park with just the same body movements as my old pup.

    I'm so sorry about your loss. It is so hard to deal with, yet you know, in your heart, that you did the right thing.
    I've been through it, and know how hard it is.
    You are right, about forgetting that they are no longer near, and expecting a greeting, when you open the door, or thinking about getting up and letting him out, and then remembering...
    Take care.

    Sorry to hear that, hope you find another loving pooch

    When I had to put Honie Bear, my dog of 14 years down, my vet told me, "We can keep her alive for a few more days, but that would be for you. If we put her down so she's not suffering anymore, that's for her." Although it still makes me sad to think of her gone, I'm glad she didn't have to suffer anymore. I hope you find comfort in knowing you did it for Cheech.

    *warm hugs*

    So sorry for your loss, yes I know what you are going thru. I have not been without a dog for 43 years and I never plan to be again. Getting a new dog really does help, believe me!
    I have been thinking about you for the past several days. You did the right thing.

    Sorry to hear about Cheech! Frown I know you did everything you could. What a tough choice! You are right to wait till you get settled in the new place to get a new friend though. Hope everyday gets a little better buddy!

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I had my Monkey for almost 10 years and can completely relate to thinking you hear your pet or even a feeling like they are still "there" somehow. {{{{Contrary}}}}
