    Oh, yes. Only too well. I saw this a couple of years ago:

    veterinarian’s –
    she leaves
    with a box and tears

    Yours is simpler and leaves the emotion as an exercise for the reader. I think it works better than mine.

    I love the succinctness of yours, Alexander. It grabs the heart…

    It's a feeling many of us can identify with.

    after the vet
    greeted by the crush
    of silence

    So sad, I'll never really get over our last family dog.
    goodbye to autumn
    a day spent watching dogs
    walk their owners
