I'll Love You Forever

It's been 3 weeks now since you died in my arms, little boy. I wish I could have saved you. I wish I had held you a little longer that day. I wish I had gotten to tell you I loved you one more time. I wish I had just spent 5 more minutes petting your soft, silky head.

It felt so sudden, but looking back I can see how withdrawn you had become. You were my best friend, my first born baby, and the bright spot in some very dark times in my life. You made me feel loved. I loved you with all my heart.

People don't understand why I'm still grieving, but I just can't stop missing you. I love you so much, my sweet Chuck! I'll always love you!

I Know How All of You Feel
by: Liz

It's been 6 months since my Lucy died. She was with me for 13 years.

She was there helping me through some difficult times in my life. She made me laugh when I could not smile. She made me want to live the day when I would have stayed in bed. She loved me when I felt no one else did. She was my friend when I felt I didn't have any friends. It was me and her and I loved her so much.

I still cry every day. It gets easier, but it's not something you get over -- you just learn to live with it. I miss her so muc,h and everywhere I turn, I have a memory with her.

She was absolutely the best dog, and such a good soul. I am forever grateful she shared her life with me, but so deeply broken somewhere that I have to go on without her.

I am sorry for all of you. I hope soon your pain will be swept away like a gentle summer rain, and soon you will be able to remember your loved one with smiles and gratitude rather than the grief and the sorrow. Good vibes to all of you.

You're Not Alone
by: Nicole

You're not alone in the way you feel about losing your beloved fur baby. I am struggling with grief over the loss of my Chihuahua, Cinnamon, whom I just lost on Monday (today is Thursday).

I keep thinking about her and wishing I could've held her for a little longer. I wish I could've taken her for one more walk, one more ride in the car, told her her how much she meant to me, told her how much I loved her.

I feel like maybe there was more I could've done to help her... something, anything that would've made her well again. If only I had, she'd still be here with me.

She was part of me, and when she took her final breath, cradled in my arms, part of me died along with her. So, I can totally relate to everything you're going through in dealing with your loss.

I just keep reminding myself that there will come a day when Cinnamon and I will be together again. And you and your baby will too.

I Know How You Feel
by: June

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that feels that way. On July 27 my Buffy left me. If there's one thing of many, I wish I could have held her longer too. I thought if I took her to the vet maybe she would have lived.

I miss my dog, and I understand how you feel.
