Name one man, one person who's never endeared pain in their life. There is no one, not even Jesus.

So, as it all goes, God put us down here for a reason, a simple reason to live our lives out to the fullest no matter how it turns out as a good (insert religion)

So, as far as it goes, who knows? Your doggy may be floating in heaven waiting for you. [I have no idea what happens to dogs, sorry.]

So it may not be anything you did. [Unless the dog was a bad one >.> XP]
Life turns out, people die and people come, same with dogs.

Not gonna say get over yourself, but dun blame God for it.

Perhaps God took your dog to show you that sometimes things happen that you can't control. Or perhaps something else. I don't know. I don't claim to be God or know His ways. No one really can (Satanists do, but they're just egotists). But what I want you to realize is that everything that happens is part of His plan. Yes, it hurts. I know. I lost a dog at a young age (which, incidentally, caused me to become detached from animals and slowly brought me to the point of not caring what happens to them). But pray for God to help you, and He will guide your way.

For all the serious Christians in here, I can't believe none of you realized Strop meant the biblical story of Job, who suffered many pains without one curse towards heaven. That's exactly what many of you are trying to relay to Meeeeee; haven't you read it?

^Yes, I've read Job. I wasn't talking about that, though, was I? But yeah, Job is a really good example of this.

Well, what happens is basically God tells Satan that he can do whatever he wants to this guy named Job as long as he doesn't hurt him. So Satan takes away everything Job had - his farm, his family, everything. But Job does not once blaspheme God. Rather, he praises Him throughout the book. In the end God gives him like four times what he had originally or something, I dunno.

Hey, really sorry to hear that you lost your dog. I feel your pain, in fact, when me and my family moved, we had to put down a cat that was one of my friends. it was really sad, but the cat had health problems. but, the way to look at it is that the dog is being taken to a better place. things happen, and its not like the dog is somewhere being tortured. im sure where he is he's happy, just like my cat. but, thats just my opinion. i hope it makes u feel a little better :)

Please do not say short answers like that. That is spamming unless you at least explain your reasoning.
