HELP. I've lost my 14 year old Lab x Border Collie. The HARDEST day of my LIFE. Barr NONE. I'll give a run down... I have 3 kids (14, 12 & 10 years old... all boys) and we adopted a 4 year old lab x 10 years ago. He was beautiful. An 'easy' dog. Didn't bark. Didn't dig. Didn't want for anything at all.... it was live at first sight. So life went on. He ended up getting some sort of stomach cancer (incurable) but lived a painfree life for years after diagnosis. The occasional vomit, but what Lab doesn't *food was often the cursed enemy* I couldn't believe it, last Friday... My best mate, my tag along and my boys guardian and bestest buddy passed away. Coby had his ups and downs but that night i arrived home from my boys footy and he ran to me to say hello as i hopped out of the car. I never thought i would be saying goodbye tonight. He had a turn and collapsed and couldn't even wait for the locum vet...we lay with him in our arms waiting for the vet & he took his last breath. He made our family complete. He was my little shadow and the kids bestest fur brother. I will miss him beyond words. A huge chunk of our hearts gone. Well... now its been 1 week since our beautiful dog left us. life is different now. No greetings at the door. No cuddles on the couch and we have to pick up all crumbs on the floor. It is the little things we take for granted, that when not there, we miss dearly. We Love and miss him so much. It's almost too much to bear. I am bawling my eyes out daily still. It's been just over 1 week. I know it's still early days... but I can't even look at a photo of him without bawling uncontrollably. I'm truly heartbroken. Please someone help. I need to know it won't feel like this for ever!?
