I didn't know if I actually wanted to express my feelings on this board.

Please do not beat yourself up. I lost 2 dogs (one august 2009, the other a year b/f that). It was awful. It still is hard. We can second guess everything, but that does no one any good. Be kind to yourself now, that's what Perdy would want for you. It is so easy to blame ourselves for things we had no control over. Please try not to do that. You did what you thought best at the time. I did too. I still rip myself up for not giving my boy Dylan a last meal. The details are not important now, but I blame myself for that, for changing Emily's meds around a month b/f she passed... on and on. They both lived long full lives. I still mourn their loss and btw, it took me almost 2 years to post here. I lost Emily in June of 2008, Dylan in August of 2009 and I couldn't post until today. Go figure :-)

Be kind to yourself. You did the best you could. Memorializing them in some way helped me a lot.
