Today was one of the worst days of my life. We had to say goodbye to our 14 year old Yorkie, Luxy, aka "Baby Dog". No words can express the pain that I am feeling, nor can anything soothe my heart. I watched as his body became weaker and weaker...his eyes were blind, his ears, deaf. A week ago, he began to loose his bladder control, and wet in his pin at night. But he was still roaming the yard, like he was having an adventure or something. Yesterday, I noticed that he was shivering, and today, that his hind legs could no longer hold him up well. I watched as he fell of the patio, and walked in small circles. He drank water for so long. :( He never ate today. Oh, this hurts so much. Dear God, please hold my precious Luxy in your arms tonight, and give him rest, peace, and make him whole again. We love him so much, and we were not ready to say goodbye, but as the day went on, he became too weak to hold up his head, too lethargic to do anything but sleep. God I love him so much. I had 14 beautiful years with him, but this hurts!!!!! I cried so hard today, my eyes are burning, stinging, and swollen. I ache to hold him again, and when he kissed away my tears, God, I thank you for giving him the strength for those last precious kisses! Oh BABY DOG....OH I MISS YOU SO!!!!! I am so sorry that I couldn't make it better this time. Rest in Peace, precious Luxy. We will always miss you so much! Thank you for the love you always gave to us.

Run again, play again, hop again, and see and hear it all Baby Dog!

So sorry for your loss. It is heartbreaking to say the least! At least there is no suffering for Luxy and what a great life he had with you. Praying for you to be strong, x

Hi Diana, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember having to put my cat to sleep and it was very emotional. My thought are with you.

Just wanted to let you all know that I am okay. I have just needed some time to absorb, and accept what I could not come to grips with, that our little Yorkie, Luxy, is gone now. It has been so hard for me to accept, but I knew the time was right, and I had to let him go. He brought us such joy and unconditional love. Our dog Oscar spent every single day of his life (he is about 12 himself) with Luxy. He cries every day, howls, and is in deep mourning for his precious friend. It is so tough to hear. Thank you for every thought, concern expressed, and for every prayer for our family at this difficult time. Love to all!
