Loconn55: Thank you so much for your story about Dr. Chumley and Pooka (best names ever) Your words really touched my heart. Hearing from pug parents who have been through this pain is helping me heal. Your story really touched me. I felt as if I've been slowly drowning in a quicksand of grief ever since I had to put my Ling Ling to sleep. And your words were like a hand or life jacket helping me out of that place of guilt and regret.
Sometimes hearing from an outsiders perspective (especially pug parents who have loved and said goodbye to their pugs) really shakes me out this place of darkness. To me, Ling was always going to be my baby I raised and I was in such denial of his old age and his body breaking down. It went from "we just need to get him back to his baseline" to making the decision to put him to sleep. I never really thought to prepare for the inevitable because there was no clear answer from the vets. That's why it felt so quick.
Dr. Chumley and Pooka sound like wonderful boys LoConn55. I bet they were so full of charm, sweetness and loyalty. Im so sorry for your losses. Auntie Pug and to Rugby's mom, my deepest sympathy for your babies. They were so lucky to have such loving and devoted moms in their lives. And as you were to have them. Pugs are such amazing dogs aren't they? Something about them is so special. So happy you have your other dog families to keep you happy during this difficult past year.
I'm fortunate to have Lings sister Sammy left. She is a Boston/Frenchie mix. Very different dog. But they made a great duo. Sigh. Mornings are the hardest. I miss my Ling so much. I hope one day this feeling of complete emptiness will turn into memories and the happiness I shared with My Ling over the last 13 yrs. Loconn55, your story and all the pug parents here at pug village stories' gives me hope that it will one day.

I am so sorry for your loss, and I hope in time you can add another pug to your family in honor of Ling Ling. Pugs really are wonderful.
