My dog was just euthanized; I am very sad. Pray for me.

I'm sorry for you loss.  I know how hard it can be.  Pets are part of the family, little people in fur coats.  Please take comfort in knowing that euthanisia is painless.  I had to have a kitten euthanized because of leukemia and I was there, he fell asleep.  And I also worked at a vet clinic.  It's tough right now but it's in a better place. God Bless.

I'm so very sorry.  A lot of people don't understand the bond between us and our companion animals, so it's hard to find solace; but there are also those of us who so deeply understand the blessings we've had when given the unconditional love of a pet, and how terrible it is to lose them.  Know that my heart mourns with you.  I will pray for you .

Lord, have mercy! I can relate. My wife and I lost two very beloved cats in 2007-2009.

I had to go through it in October.  It was like losing a family member, but remember that not 1 sparrow falls without the LORD noticing.  May the LORD be with you.

I also have had to make this very difficult decision with one of my cats.  Like with others, I grew up around animals and I am a cat person personally.  May the Lord have mercy on you, your family and your little pet.

I know it doesn't make sense but apparently my dog was not euthanized. This was all happening in another state and I was stranded on vacation so I was mistaken.

I'm hoping this means that you still have your puppy to come home to?!  *Thanks be to God!*  Again, I am reminded of how precious His blessings are in our lives - its so easy for me to lose perspective and take so much for granted.  I hope you are reassured of your dog's safety as soon as possible!
