That’s a horrible situation @Youngy228. My dog passed away during the first lockdown. We had her 17 years and I still think I hear her sometimes. Take each day as it comes. It does get easier with time. Sorry for your loss mate

I’m sorry to hear that mate. I don’t have any quotes to try and cheer you up or stories of similar experience I just wanted to pass on my condolences. If you need an ear at any point just message me. Again I’m sorry for your loss 💙

Never easy taking that decision when the time comes. We lost one in November 2019 through Cancer and heart breaking doesn't even begin to describe it. She was only 11 and felt we were robbed of another few good years, her soulmate who was 12 just shut down and after spending thousands on him in Vets fees we had to let him go just 8 weeks later. He wouldn't eat or sleep and just started wasting away pining for her. 

We got two rescues, not to replace them as it's impossible but to offer another dog a chance or in this case two. We also got a Pup who thinks she rules the roost but the three get on really well and provide a lot of love and fun. There isn't a day goes by that as a family we don't think of the other two and how missing them still hurts. I have their ashes and we know that we should spread them somewhere but even now a few years later and it's hard just to think of doing that though I know that keeping them won't bring them back. 

Time doesn't heal it just gets gentler each passing month, the memories are the treasures they have left with you for comfort.

youngy, i feel for you. i lost my wonderful companion on april 7th . he was almoost 14 so had a good innings but i was absolutely devastated and havent yet fully gotten over his parting. he was my best friend, loyal,loving and a joy to be with , i want to replace him but dont feel the need to compare, god even a kitten, as you know ive had health issues during the last year or so  as well as a seperation from my wife ,add to that a series of appliances giving out, 7 parking tickets,a speeding fine and serious debt problems. losing my dog was the icing on the cake but as said it gets easier even though the memories are close at hand. the poor thing had a series of problems in his last year, large lumpsthat needed checking but werent cancerous, then fleas picked up from building works going on opposite our house which irritated the hell out of him and during his last weeks he had severe constipation. the day he left us was traumatic as he gave out an amighty groan of pain and collapsed on his hinds , i picked him up and put him in his bed while i went out to local shop, when i returned he was  deceased. i cried for hours then ,because of finances being awful i couldnt afford to get the poor thing cremated so i had to dig a grave in the back garden and bury him. sorry for the self pity and sorry for your loss mate but treasure those memories and  remember your dog with pride.

Sorry for your loss and the circumstances around it.  I relied on my beautiful dog to be the stability in my life when everything else was a challenge.  He certainly was the stability.

I take comfort in the memories for sure - a few weeks on and I have made the decision to do it all again.  I'm not replacing him - just starting another chapter with another one.  I see it as a testament to the joy he gave me that I want to do it all again.

    • That's not from Wilder's mouth like the other section is though, that's just the Northern Echo writers opinion which is about as good as anyone's on here... with some notable exceptions 🤠
    • "Paddy McNair generally lined up as the left of the Teessiders’ three centre-halves last season, but the Northern Irishman is more naturally right-footed and is set to compete with Anfernee Dijksteel for the right-hand side centre-half spot next term" Taken from the Echo article on the same topic, they seem convinced it's either Dijksteel or Paddy.
    • I wonder if we'll see one of them used in Howson's position as preseason continues? We had a couple of links with players in that position (Chalobah I think?) ages ago, but we haven't seen any for ages. It may be that we want to try one of McNair or Dijksteel there.
    • It  could mean one of them will  be sold? If it was up to me McNair would be my choice . When Paddy played rcb on Saturday he was okay but when Dijksteel played the second half in that role he was much better and linking up with Izzy. Obviously it was Bishop Auckland but I still think Anth looked more suited to the role    
    • Think he just wants more completion/rotation so may be a case of either fry & Lenihan and either Dijksteel or McNair for example. I agree I wouldn’t be surprised to see us try get two left sided CB to compete one experienced and one younger.
