Our Sweet Boy K.O. Our hearts ache and our tears flow

The pain of losing our baby boy K.O., a 6 1/2 year old Boxer, is indescribable. He was our first dog, and with no children, he was truly like our son. We feel as if our hearts have been ripped out of our chests, along with guilt, me especially, as he was put to rest due to extreme pain from stomach and pancreas cancer.

I couldn't listen to my sweetie cry anymore. Pain to the point where he couldn't even sleep. We did everything we could but I still have so much pain and guilt, it's unbearable.

I miss my shadow, I miss him staring at me, I miss our little games and special times together, rubbing his neck and him talking to me through his adorable grunts. I know he's gone physically but he will always be with me in spirit.

I'm sorry sweetie. I'm sorry if you think I let you down, but you're in no more pain.

Love Momma and Daddy

There is nothing like a Boxer's love. You showed your love to and for K.O. by giving him peace.

Sorry for your loss

My Maggie passed away last week and I too had to make the difficult decision to let her go. My heart broke as I'm sure yours is too. Know that the joy found in the companionship of a pet is a blessing not given to everyone.

May your heart mend and you keep his memories alive within you.

You did the right thing. He understood why you did what you did and for that his heart glows for the right decision you made.

Hang in there.
