Today, we had to put down my loving dog of 13 years. We had already been having a rough time with dealing with postponing the wedding, but then our dog had a drastic personality shift and was clearly in a large amount of pain. So we debated on it, but leaving her in that much pain just wasn't worth it for her sake.
It sucks so much. I loved my little sidekick, and seeing her in pain was destroying both of us. So on top of the chaos of corvid-19, we had to find a vet that would let us go inside and sit with her. This was not how I saw my march playing out. Now we had to let go of the creature that was going to be part of our wedding...and do it in such a dramatic and heart wrenching fashion. All of that to say, I wish covid-19 was real so i could throw down. This has been a very traumatic month, and I'm kind of ready for April. At least we can start healing now.
I'm so sorry to hear. My parents have a senior dog and I always worry about the day that we have to put her down. I can't imagine in the midst of this crisis, also having to deal with such a difficult loss. Thinking of you from a fellow dog lover!

Yeah, 10/10 do not recommend. Most vets were only doing curbside, and we wanted to be with her. Thank you. She's in a better place now, and it's truly for the best. Just wish it hadn't been such a chaotic process.
I’m in a very similar situation. Our pup that we thought was only 5 (rescue, so just an estimate) was diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer two weeks ago. And we have started conversations about moving the wedding. I have dealt with COVID for work non stop for the last 19 days. Something has to give. But I am honestly most heartbreaking for my dog, who is my little monster. Ugh.
Omg Kathryn I’m so sorry. You’ve been so positive through all your wedding madness and then for this to happen 😭. Losing a fur baby is the absolute worst... my heart is broken for you. Sending virtual hugs !
