I read it despite what I knew would happen . Hug
We had our own 14 year JRT, Rocky or RockyJ or rocketdog, and I feel your pain most acutely.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.

My dog died suddenly too this year and I'll admit in an odd way, his death hit me harder than my mother in law's passing just days before him. The only reason for that was maybe because he was here and now he's not. I miss his ways. Sadcryface

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

It hurts. I still remember my last pet dying 4 years ago. My sympathies go out to you, since they are like family. Right now I can't even afford a visit to the vet. That's the only reason why I haven't got a new furry friend. It's not the life I desire, since I had pets for 40 years. But it would be irresponsible to take one in if I can't provide for them to the best what they deserve.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Emma. It's so difficult to lose a loved one.

What you said here ...

"We spent some good quality time with him that day. I gave him cuddles, had him on the couch with me, with his head in my lap while I played video games. Layed with him in his extra-large bed for a little while."

... was good for you both - he responded to your love and comfort. In a sense, you were able to "say goodbye" to each other. He no longer suffers from his ageing issues.

Heart Take care.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

I'm so sorry to hear it Emma. It certainly does knock the wind out of you to lose a pet like that. My condolences.

Thank you all so much. We did select the private cremation package which does include a pawprint. But you made me want to call and confirm that they are, and they are for sure.
