Precious Little Pearl

by Mary Elly
(Santa Clara, California)

Her name is Pearl. She was a part of my life, sharing everything from car rides, foods, vacation trips, groceries stores (sit in car waiting, of course), retail stores, trips to the beaches (Santa Cruz, Monterey Peninsula, Santa Monica....cannot count all) to those quiet and relaxed moment at the parks.

We shared the sunshine, the cold and wet days as we shared the fun moments when I returned home from work at the end of the day.

I asked myself many times when she was still around: "What do I do one day without her?" I did not have an answer yet before she left me, fast and unexpected, from a fatal disease that ended her life at 9 years and 11 months exactly. Her birthday is March 23, 2003, and she passed on February 22, 2013 before noon.

I love her so much, and I know the pain will remain for a long time. She stays in my heart forever.

I feel the same, as I just lost my partner in life, Toto. He was everything to me too. Even though your baby has gone far away, he is there, I am sure. I don't know where, and I don't know much.

I saw my little dog's body covered in an energy field before we buried him. I am not mad I promise, nor even a spooky woman, but this I saw and I can't believe it myself.

The thing is, there is this immense love between animal and human. It is the love of the good, and that seems to be the lesson.

Love to you from a woman a long way away who feels as you do.

I'm sorry for your loss. Pearl is still with you.

She loved you very much. Some day you will be with her again.

All the best.

The road you will now travel will be long, empty and sad. It is the road I am now traveling for the second time in 10 months.

I have been told get another dog right away. You will know when you are ready to love again, if ever.
