My Little Baby :)

If you had told me seven years ago that I would cry at the thought of losing a dog, I would have told you where to go!

But seven years on, you've got cancer, it's not fair, you're going to sleep tomorrow, to a wonderful little place called heaven. You're not even gone yet, and already I can't stop the tears. X X X

Sorry for Your Loss
by: Sharon

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my "Carley Girl" three months ago.

It does get a little easier with time. This will not help you now, but perhaps later on, we will think of all the neat and funny stuff they did, and how unconditional their love was, there is nothing to compare to that. We also know in our hearts they will be there to meet us at heaven's gate.

Take care.

So Sorry
by: Karen

So sorry to hear of your loss. It is so very hard, what you are going through. We all tend to forget that these pets of ours will live for a relatively short time in comparison to our own lives. It is inevitable that they will close their eyes for good one day, leaving us feeling totally out of sorts.

We must all learn to be grateful though, for whatever time and experiences we shared with them. They will live on in our memories and will be deeply embedded in our hearts. They are simply irreplaceable and it could make us feel guilty just trying alone to move forward. We don't want to forget that special feeling we had with them so we hesitate to move on.

I went through all of that, feeling darn guilty in taking over a family's pet as they were migrating a few weeks after my dog died. But in the end, it helped me overcome my loss a whole lot quicker. I still think of him and am reduced to tears when I do, but it gets a little easier as time goes by.

My heart goes out to you so very much as the passing of your doggie is still very new. I am reaching out to offer you big bear hugs to comfort you. God bless.

Sorry for Your Loss

Three weeks ago today, I was right where you are now. I had to put Jake, my 10½-year-old Golden Retriever, to sleep because of cancer. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do!

Let the tears flow, not that you could stop them even if you wanted to. I know your heart is breaking. I've lost my shadow and I still miss him every day. I pray God will give you comfort.
