    You guys are so kind to dog lovers. I'm in Italy. I had to leave her with my daughter, while I traveled for work. She was almost 17. It's the first time as an adult I've gone thru this. I'm alone bawling in a hotel room. I should've been there for her. She was the best pup ever. A Jack Russell, named Dot. I'm so sad, I can't function. I thought of you @babybear . This sucks. ):

    Sorry! That's a very long life for a pooch. It shows you took great care of her and gave her plenty of love.

    I can't see through tears. I screwed up my title. I feel like throwing up. I haven't topped off my Italy phone for minutes. I don't want to talk to anyone yet. God this is so hard.

    it is so cliche but time heals all wounds... allow yourself to grieve
    in time the hurt will be replaced with happiness and fond memories

    and getting drunk does help

    Yes. Almost. She was doing well but today threw up blood. The dr. Said she was suffering. I said goodbye over Skype. I don't know how I'm going to live with that. I had 30 seconds. It happened so fast. My phone wasn't on.

    Think of all us idiots right behind you and probably saying something really stupid to make you smile. You obviously took very good care of her for her to be 17! She was a very lucky dog. :love:

    You will be fine for the 8 am meeting. U probably won't even think about it during that time. Also who schedules meeting at 8 am? That's like having a meeting at 4 pm on a Friday

    Hey! I'm so fucking sorry this happened to you while you were far from home.
    Stop kicking your own ass right now. You were an amazing owner and you loved that pup. She loved you. No distance can change that shit.
    I know this pain. It's hard.
    Just know that you gave her an amazing life and she loved you back.

    The dog had a great life. There is nothing to feel guilty about. Be sad, but for your own well-being, don't make it out to be bigger than it needs to be.
