I Have a Dog-Shaped Hole in My Heart

Otto passed away 8 days, 13 hours and 30 minutes ago. He left a hole in my heart, my bed and my life that no person or other dog can fill.

I feel so alone without him, and I think I'd do anything to hold him again. It feels like no one understands, but he would have. He was with me always-waiting for me when I got home, laying on the couch with me, following me around the house, sleeping curled up in my arms.

My heart is broken and I don't know how to fix it....

Sorry To Tell You
by: RAY WALKER

Yes I am very sorry for you, and also sorry to tell you the hole will not close.

I lost Buster 4 years ago this month. Not one day goes by that I don't think about him. Sometimes I think I will quit reading the pain of others.

Again, I'm sorry. I know your pain.

RIP

I am so sorry, but I understand. Cry if you must, just cry. Take time to heal your shattered heart.

Otto shall rest in peace, in your heart. I experienced the same ordeal 51 days ago.

I am so sorry for you. I know the devastation you feel. My thoughts are with you.

Please know that the love you shared will never be replaced but find comfort in knowing your precious baby is at peace and forever in your heart.

So Sorry

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. These pets of ours leave these holes in our hearts. Eventually you will be ok. The hole never closes, but it will shrink a little.

I lost my little Opie. He was 13, a little doxie. He died in my arms on December 13, 2008.

It took me a while, but I did find another buddy. He was a rescue, which made me feel good. He needed a home and some love and care so badly.

He is not my little Opie. I still cry and always will love him so much. But sweet little Dannie needed me as much as I needed him. I needed to love and hug something besides my tear soaked pillow.

Good luck.
