She's Gone.  
I have some sad news its something I'm still trying very hard to come to terms with, but this morning my dog Sasha died.

I woke up early to the sound of silence, usually I can hear either Kizzy or Sasha snoring by the bed, but today there was nothing. I suddenly had a bad feeling and sat up, it was then I saw Sasha lying full length beside the bed. She always sleeps on my side of the bed, so she can lean up against the wall with her head towards the door. But this morning she was lying on her side facing the top of the bed. I couldn't see her breathing and I jumped out of bed, and all my worst fears were confirmed my beautiful girl was gone.

She has been a little wobbly on the old legs of late, after all she was twelve but apart from that she seemed fit and well, so this has come as a complete shock. Steve swears that when he got up this morning she was still alive, she was in her familiar 'Anibus' pose lying down with her head up facing me. The only thing we can think of is after he went down stairs she lay down and had a heart attack. She looked peaceful and as if she was just lying there waiting for me to get my lazy ass out of bed and take her for her walk.

Right now we're all over the place, we always thought we'd lose Kizzy first and this has floored us.

Just before I go here are a few pictures of my girls.

Oh god honey I am SO SO sorry!!!! There's nothing that can help with the passing of a four pawed family member and Sasha was beautiful and vital and gorgeous! I am seriously so sorry bb, I'm having a moment of tearfulness which maybe means nout but I'm having it for your loss, and hers, and I hope that helps. *hugs* I'm here if you need me xx

Thanks for this it does help a little, it's just so hard to lose her like this we've known it would happen eventually. But it was such a shock. All I've done today is keep crying, I'm hoping I won't be so soggy at work tomorrow.

Oh sweetie, I am so so sorry!! The passing of a four pawed family is extremely hard to come to terms with. She was a beautiful animal and was so vital and your friend. I know this might not mean anything now but remember she's looking down on you now and will continue to do so.
*hugs* I'm also here if you need me. xoxo

Thank you, it's just so hard to say goodbye to them. Sasha was gorgeous and a complete and utter drip! She hadn't got an aggressive bone in her body,and loved everyone. She really was one in a million.

Oh honey! I'm so very sorry, what beautiful dogs they are, where. My love to you all especially you and Kizzy, I'm sure she'll miss her friend greatly.

Thank you for your kind words,dogs and so far Kizzy is coping quite well. I think having the cats around is helping her.

Omg, hun! I'm so sorry about you losing her! *hugs*

It's so horrible to lose a pet bc they are a part of your family. I know I would be devastated if mine went with no warning like that, and I'd be sobbing too, and there's no limit to how much you do bc it tears at your heart, and it's needed.

If you ever just want to talk, either send me a LJ message or email me ( jennlyn81@gmail.com ). I'll see it right away through email more than through LJ though. It can be anything... I'll be there to talk. Anytime you need something, don't be afraid to reach out to me, I'm always here to listen.

*more hugs*

*Hugs* Thank you so much for this, it was such a shock but perhaps it's better this way rather than her suffering.

Thank you again for your offer of help.

Oh hon, I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost one of our dogs almost two years ago very unexpectedly one morning. It's hard when you have more than one - people seem to think it should be a comfort - but we were grieving ourselves and having to watch our other dog missing her mate. Our remaining dog is on borrowed time with liver disease. She's almost 13 but it's still hard watching her age week by week.

Take care of yourself and give your old girl lots of cuddles.

Thank you, and it is hard on the one that's been left behind. So far Kizzy seems to be coping ok and I'm sure we will stop crying eventually. I'm sorry to hear about your other dog, and it's so difficult to watch them age suddenly.

Please give your girl a cuddle from me.

Oh no, I'm so, so sorry. There's nothing that can prepare us for when we lose our beautiful furbabies, they are such a huge part of the family.
Give Kizzy a big hug for me - I'll give you your hug on Friday.
Take care xx

Thank you, there really is nothing that can prepare you for a shock like this. Of all the ways I thought I'd lose Sasha, I never dreamed it would end like this. She's left a huge Sasha shaped hole in our lives, and I've given Kizzy a big hug. I'll take you up on that hug on Friday.
