Just wanted to vent. I thought about Marco all day. My lil friend, my baby. It's like I could hear his bark in my mind and I feel like he's still here. Just a puppy, how cruel and what a nitemare. I wish I didn't have to put him down, he just turned 4 months. I feel guilty and I'm not sure why. I didn't have him too long just a little over 2 months. Everything that I didn't want to happen happened in the worst way and nothing comforts me right now. In a way I'm glad I didn't get a Beagle right now because I didn't want to forget this one by getting a replacement. It was confusing enough not calling Domino Marco and they look nothing alike. I just saw a picture that I hadn't seen in a while and I couldn't believe I almost forgot how gorgeous he was. His colors and how just would just stand there and look at me. I guess I'm just having a moment. I put a picture of him on my wall and ever since I've been feeling sad. Plus it's been 2 months since I put him down.

I am so sorry. He was a beautiful little guy. I am so glad that he had you to love him. You have nothing to feel guilty about, you did everything that could be done. Marco knows how much you love him.

I don't know what Marco's story was but wanted to say he looked precious and I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Marco was indeed a beautiful little guy. He certainly did touch a lot of lives on this forum. I'm still sad for you. You will always remember and love him. His life was way too short.

When we lost our 14 year old Beagle, Sam, we got 2 more Beagles after a period of time. Sadie and Pooh Bear. We poured our love to them and that helps the mourning. Or at least it helped us. I know your little Domino helps you as I know you love him very much.

Marco, was a beautiful puppy. Grieving is a natural process, and just because you weren't able to have Marco for long doesn't mean you shouldn't grieve. It will get better.

As for another beagle being a replacement, that's not the case. A new dog helps to fill the empty spot, but each is an individual, and has a different personality.

Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry for your loss!! Marco was a beautiful little puppy. I'm sure you did everything you could to give him a good life, and he knew how much you loved him. Godspeed, little Marco.

I'm terribly sorry to hear what had happened to little Marco. I read his story and you went above and beyond for the poor guy. Unfortunately things may have not worked out the way you had planned, but in his final moments I'm sure he was so appreciative and happy to share his short time with you.

He may not be with you physically, but he will always be with you spiritually.

I'm so sorry for everything you've been through. You did everything possible. It's okay to allow yourself time to grieve and heal. Marco was a beautiful beagle, and he was fortunate to have such a loving home.

There will always be a place in your heart for Marco. The pain will let up, and will turn to joyous memories of him. I am very sorry for your loss.

Life is so not fair sometimes and there are things that happen that we will never understand. Little Marco was indeed a beautiful pup and no dog, even a Beagle could possibly ever replace him.

Someone once wrote and I truly believe those words - You do not get another dog to replace the one you lost - rather you get another dog to honor the lost dog you loved - the one that was lost left such a lasting impression on you and taught you that you can love such a creature that now you want to honor the lost by pouring that love on another. And the author was referring to lost as a dog that has died.

Like the others said, Marco touched all of our hearts very deeply. I can only imagine how hard it was for you. It's difficult to lose a pup that young.

Let yourself grieve and cry and feel all the emotions that will help you get through the pain. And know that in that brief period in time you had with him, you gave Marco all the love he could ever want.

I started crying when I read your post. I've said it here a lot but I put my Makaella down on May 20th and rescued Jack on Memorial Day. To be honest, I don't think I've grieved Makaella's loss at all. I think I've buried it deep because she was my special girl. I know I have to face it and NOT use Jack as a way to avoid it.

I can't even look at her pictures anymore - I loved her so much. Well, I better stop now before I keep blubbering on. My heart goes out to you eventhough I don't know (and don't need to know) what happened. The loss is indescribable.

I saw your post, and as you know I can so relate. Except that as pups go,Chippie had had a life....even though to us it was still too short. Marco, never really was given time to do all the beagle things that beagles do. It is hard to look at pics, and that is one of the reasons, my husband won't look at pics of Chippie to this day, he just not ready to see that gorgeous face yet. We lost our pups about the same time, and I remember getting an e-mail from you and you from me...so please when you are feeling low, write me again. I still miss Chipper too. Cobi is a wonderful boy, and I love him to pieces, but he's not Chipper. Just as your new boy is not Marco. I'll continue to think of you.

So sorry to hear of your loss! It hurts like heck to lose a
longtime family companion like that! When Pop & I had to say
goodbuy to Snapper we both wept & knew that we might never know
one as unique as he was! He was the standard by all future
ones to be compared to! Goober has done a very good job in his
life to fill that role...(but a boy,s first dog is a tough job
to top)! But Goober to his credit has a lot of accomplishments
as a mentor to several dogs! (It will be a very sad day when I
lose him...even though he is well over 16 yrs old now)!

Thank u guys for the support and kind words, it does make it better. I still think about him all the time. I just had so many hopes of things we would do as he got older. I was so excited. My days couldn't be that bad because I would think of him. He was my first dog and I wanted everything to be perfect. I tear up pretty much everyday especially when I think about that last week I had him after the mri before I put him down. I just hated how it happened, I would understand letting him go more without him suffering. I cried and prayed on my knees for a miracle. It was out of my hands and I've had to accept it. We had a special connection. I will always remember the moments before we said goodbye and me telling him I will see him again.

Life goes on and I feel better but I'm not the same person. I don't think I could've gone without another dog, I was desperate.Beaglemom I'm sorry for your loss, I know it hurts to grieve but is a must I realize. I've cried very hard. I feel much better and I'm enjoying Domino more. I hope things get much easier for you too Cobismom. I'll be here for you as well.
