My Beloved, Faithful, Beautiful "Diego"

by Carmen

My baby, Diego, you left me on Thursday, August 8, 2013. I didn't get to say goodbye or hug you and tell you it's ok to go. I know you saw me crying and I know you knew how much I loved you and still do.

Baby, I'm sorry I didn't give you a better life. There's a lot of things I wish we could have done more often together. I'll never ever forget you.

I love you so much. I don't know what to do without you. I'm so lost.

You'll always be a part of me. I love you, Diego. 💙💙

Sorry for Your Loss
by: Jay

Oh I feel your pain. You have my deepest sympathies. I lost my girl of 15 years, a lab/mix in Oct '12. Still I relive the last moment of her alive, when the vet stuck her with the needle and didn't get it right the first time.

I so wanted it to happen at home when it had to happen. (If you want to look it up, her name was Spunky & I put I think 3 or 4 pics of her up).

I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend. They are that. I can't remember if you said how many years you had together. There is never enough time with them.

The last year for me, I guess would've been more merciful for her to end it, as she peed on herself all the time as she couldn't get up in time and I just had to watch her all the time (I'm disabled with severe pain and so I was lucky in the sense that I could be with her all the time) and had to help her up. I think I had help from a higher power in that.

I just wish they could all pass at home where they felt their familiar surroundings. I don't know what happened for you but I know that you are still reeling and it hasn't been that long for you.

Just know that I feel your pain, as I feel I have a special connection with all animals. Even though your babe wasn't mine, I can feel all the pain you must be feeling. I know you will never forget Diego, time doesn't heal the wounds, it just gets a little easier.

Take care, fellow dog lover. If you want to comment back and forth a bit to unburden, I am here for you. Sending love to your heart to help it not hurt quite as much. I'm sure your boy is watching over you, missing you too. Take care.

I Feel Your Pain
by: Debbie

I'm so very sorry that your canine child is no longer with you physically. My little canine child, Teddy, who was 13 years old, passed away two weeks ago tomorrow. I had him since he was six weeks old.

Like you and so many others I've read about, I am devastated, lost, and feel deep sorrow because my baby bear is not here with me physically. My pain erupts from the gut of my being. No matter how hard I cry and plead for my Teddy bear, he doesn't come back.

I know all of our pet children are alive and therefore with us. When it is our time to pass over to the spirit realm, we will see our babies again. And I pray to God I will never be separated from my Teddy ever again.

Love is the bond that holds the universe together.

I Missed Saying Goodbye Too
by: Nancy

Thank you for your comment, and sorry for your loss.

I lost my precious Blizzy on 9/16. I am so sad that I was not home to say goodbye to her. That is the hardest part. I miss her so so much. I would love to kiss my little 12 year old boxer's head one more time, or to get one more sloppy boxer kiss.

Love you so much, my Blizzy.


So sorry you could not be with your baby to say goodbye. I had my sweet Dutchess leave this world without me by her side. I feel your pain.

They wait for us at Rainbow Bridge!

My prayers and thoughts are with you! Diego is an angel in heaven. I'm sure he knows how much you loved him and always will!

To Diego's Mom
by: Mary

I am just in the same boat with you, Carmen. My little "Angel" left me 6 months ago today, and the pain is still as intense as if it was yesterday.

You might want to get another pet, not to replace Diego but to keep love continuing in your life (my doctor recommended that). Every pet is unique and very special to our life. Me, I'm not sure if I can handle another "Goodbye" since this is my third time. I became too sensitive while getting older. Take care.
