Hi, My dog Max died Saturday,he had a bad heart and he finally gave out. He was only 6 years old almost 7 next March. I was giving him medicine everyday and never ever missed a day. He seemed fine the night before and my grandmother who I live with and help take care of let him out cause he wanted out. I slept late that day and when I got up I found him dead in the yard, he was a house dog a Golden Retriever and he was always following me around and he even slept with me. This is seriously THE worst pain I have ever felt in my life, I miss him so much and have been crying alot. I had him cremated and have his remains close to me and I do feel a little better. But I can't help but blame myself in a way cause if I would've been up do you guys think I could've saved him? I don't totally know if he died from a heart attack, but I just figured that's what happened cause of his bad heart. There was nothing outside that coulda killed him and I don't have any rat poisoning or anything like that. I guess I just need someone to talk to, because I know he's with me in spirit but I still hurt alot.
