Loss of my service dog Dixie has me heartbroken.


Recommended Posts

My 12 year old service dog died on 5/15.  Grieving animal losses in the past has been bad. To lose a service dog is unbelievable.  They're both guardians and our pets.  They're our lifeline when we aren't able to do for ourselves.  My glue to this world died.

I am so sorry, Dixie, not only you're losing your right hand but also your beloved family member.  I wish it didn't hurt so bad or I knew some way to remove the pain but I know of no way but straight through the grief, pain and all.

You've described it well, my friend. Service dogs are amazing companions, and I know this must be a significant loss for you. I am so very sorry.

I invite you to read this, along with the related articles listed at the base: Pet Loss: Death of A Service Dog.  ❤️

So sorry for your loss. I bet Dixie was sad to leave you too, service animals seem to be very special beings. Everyone here has had similar loss, I don't think you'll bore any of us if you'd like to tell us more about Dixie, your life together, your memories and so on.
