Oh Sabine,...I am glad I am not the only one. I still have the shirt and pants I wore with my little boy...still can't bear to wash them. Kevin I keep his collar next to my bed. I am so very sorry for your pain, we all understand. I still get a sick feeling in my stomach everyday at 3pm...at the time I had to say goodbye. Let yourself cry as much as you need to AND as long as you need to...Aww Kevin. *hugs*
I have the shirt hanging in my bedroom that I was wearing when I had to say goodbye to Quigley, when he was snuggling in my arms for the very last time. It's been over a year and I haven't washed or worn it again since then. There's no smell left by now, but I just can't bear to do anything with it.
I went through that too. Even on the day Quigley left me, his bloodwork was normal. Everything in his body except his lungs and a small mass near his pancreas looked normal. He had had a soft tissue injury a few months earlier and my vet took xrays just to make sure there wasn't anything unusual going on, and he was amazed that this (at the time 9 1/2 year old) dog had the joints of a young adult.What hurts the most is this... Harry's bloodwork, kidney's, liver function...everything was fine. His body was good for another 4-5 years. Then the Cancer invaded his body and just wrecked my boy. I hate it, I truly hate it. I'm angry at our Scientists for not coming up with something to solve this. I'm angry at the Vet community for not having better treatments or effective methods... I'm just really sad and angry right now. I know its not right but its how I feel.
