Sad to lose my girl

Today I had to put my best friend of 13 years to sleep. Maggie was a Golden Retriever. I got her on Christmas Eve 1989. She had arthritus in her spine and this morning she just couldn't get up any more. She was still alert and her eyes were clear as a bell but her body just gave out. It just broke my heart to do it. She had the most gentle spirit everyone just loved her. I'm just at a loss. I know it was the right thing to do. She was in pain and she couldn't control her bowels anymore but I miss her desperately. We went for a walk every single day. She came with me everywhere. How can I ever get through this???
