Sad about our coton
We had to euthanize our coton yesterday. He was 15 years old plus almost a month. I have a hole in my heart. The house is quiet. My heart wants another, my mind says not so fast or maybe not at all.
He was a lot of work as he got old and sick. I had to carry him to bathroom outside like 20 times a day for about 4 years (could not make it up the one step anymore to the outside without hitting his paw under the step - not enough pep like when he was younger to get up the one step). My husband and I have less energy than we did the first go around 15 years ago. Plus we had most days the last 2 years or so of his life without a full night's sleep, as he had more bathroom needs as he aged.
He was the nicest dog ever. I feel kind of lonely. I will have to slowly learn to pick up the pieces of my broken heart. A new dog would not be the dog I had and I want the dog I had back.
I would welcome any thoughts.
