29.01.15 - The Day I Lost My Best Friend


A week ago yesterday, on January 29th, I lost my best friend. I couldn't bring myself to write about this devastation until now.

Two weeks ago our beloved pet dog Maisy really started going down hill. Cutting a long story short it was most likely that she had a cancerous tumour on her brain which was making her seizure every so often; each one being worse than the last. It was quite obvious in the end at ten and a half years old, that she was in pain and our furry best friend was suffering in ways we didn't want to imagine. So, as a family we made a tough and heartbreaking decision that it would simply be selfish of us all to keep her just so we wouldn't lose her. We needed to do what was best for her and saying goodbye was our only option. 

I made a video all about the journey between getting Maisy and losing her. It would mean the world to me if you watched it because it is without the doubt the worst heartbreak I have ever experienced and therefore was the hardest thing I have ever created. It was super hard not to cry on video and took so many attempts! 

Rest in perfect peace, Maisy. I love you and will see you one day soon. 


  1. I am really sorry you had to go through this. I have lost my furrry best friend too last year and the pain was unbearable. I am sorry you are feeling this way. Please believe that one day it won't hurt so much to think of her! And your love will always be as big as before.

    Much love x

    1. Hi Catarina,

      Thank you for your kind words. So sorry you lost your best friend too. It really is devastating but i know it'll get better over time :) xx

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. I watched your youtube video this morning before I went out and it broke my heart, I was in tears.
    She sounded like an amazing furry best friend and I'm sure she will always be by your side, even if you can't see her.

    1. Sorry, didn't mean to make you cry before you left the house! I really hope she's always by my side :) Thanks lovely. x

  3. aww no, I have a dog and I honestly can't imagine what you're going through. I can only assume, like you say, that it's the worst heartbreak. Dogs are family, there's no getting away from it I treat mine like child and the thought of losing him makes me tear up so I dread to think how you feel. I'm sure loads of people have said the same but just think she's in a happy place now, pain free, without a care in the world. xxxx
