So today at around 4:45pm, my girlfriend's family's dog was put to sleep. Her name is Millie and she's a border collie. She was 15 and a half years old.
I'm sad obviously about her passing but also happy, happy that I got to meet her and spend 4-6 years with her :)
My girlfriend is especially torn up about all this but over time the pain will ease.

I'm sorry to hear the sad news. :hug1:
The family dog, a beautiful black Labrador, was put to sleep a month ago - on the day before his 13th Birthday.
It's so sad to lose a dear friend. :low:
I think it's great that your girlfriend has you to support her through this though, it sounds like you loved the dog too.

Yeah, I love Millie soo much. I always will. I'll never forget her. Before I met her, I was unsure about dogs. But meeting her changed all that, she made me into a dog lover.

So sorry to hear this.
It's devastating when a pet dies, they are a massive part of a family.

It's a blessing that you and your girlfriend have each other at such a sad time.

I'm sorry to hear Millie has passed away. It's a very sad and difficult time, but you are right in that the pain will not be quite so raw, and will ease with time.

I had a dog as a child, a beautiful cross between a golden retriever and a labrador. He was called Leo, and my Bro and I, and my folks were really sad when he died :hug1:
