I’m so sad…

We had to put Dora to sleep, it wasn’t impacted pouches, but serious internal injuries from her fall that only had manifested themselves now..

They let us have our time to say goodbye. Then took her away to give her anestetic..

They gave us a little clay heart with her name stamped on and her paw prints…

Then they were going to put her to sleep after we left.

The girls miss her.

I was a bawling mess…

I know it may seem strange that I am such an emotional mess over a hamster, but she was part of our family….

    I’m so sorry Veronica.
    Your family is in my thoughts, and I don’t htink it’s strange to be sad about losing your hamster, she was part of your family and she was a living thing.


  2. I’m so sorry, it’s always hard to loose something you love. It’s not strange at all, it’s teaching your daughters compassion and respect for all things. I’m so glad they gave you guys something to remember her with, that’s a really awesome vet!


  3. Oh Veronica, I am so sorry. I know we were just talking about that before you went in. I can only imagine how sad you all are about Dora’s passing.
    Huge hugs sweetie, let me know if you need anything or to talk.

    It is not strange that you are so emotional about Dora, she was part of your family and you all loved her very much.

    I am so sorry, please know that I am thinking of all of you.


  4. I’m so sorry Veronica! I know it must be very hard on you and the girls to lose a family member. Pets are family!

    How very sweet of them to give you a small keepsake with her paw prints on it.



  5. Aww sorry hon! How sad.. But now she is not in pain and in peace. Hon, even though she was just a HAMSTER, she was your family member still. I cried with all my pets, my recent dog that died, my birds and even the guinea pig I mentioned earlier. Its one of the main reasons why I dont want to get another animal, because of the attachment..


  6. oh veronica, I’m so sorry!!! it’s weird that she wasnt acting like she was in pain or anything, and yet she was like that. 😦 so so sorry! When you feel like it, I’m here to talk if you want. I don’t think it’s strange for you to be so upset. We already had this talk though so I won’t get into it 🙂 I know another hampster won’t replace Dora, but maybe you could get one and name it Boots, or Diego 🙂 I’m sorry you lost a member of your family. I’m very sad for you!


  7. I’m so sorry, V. I remember when my brother’s first rat died, our parents were out of town and he was so upset. I had (now) dh take me to a pet store to buy him another. (never buy a rat, they’re prone to tumors & have short life spans) I hope the girls are doing ok. Poor things.


  8. I’m so sorry to hear that! I know exactly how you feel. I don’t know if you remember our hamsters Callie or Little Guy, but it was very hard to lose them. A couple of years ago I lost another hamster I had named Willfred and I cried every night for about a week :o( They really do become a part of the family.


  9. awwwwwwww :*( That made me cry reading. But what a SWEET process they do for such a tiny animal that made such a HUGE impact on your guys hearts. ((hugs to the whole family))
