My Snow Dog Nikita

by Myrna Whelan

Here it is almost a year since you died in my arms and I still can't get you out of my mind. I remember the day we picked you up at the breeder's home and I also remember that I did NOT want to have a dog in my super clean house, but, because my husband wanted a dog before he died (and he WAS dying), I gave in.

I fell in love with you the moment I saw you. My husband (God rest his soul) was right--I did need you to help me through his death. I did need you to "protect" me. I did need you to keep me company on lonely nights and days without him. I did need you to show me what love really means.

You did your job very well. You were the "light of my life" but now I need you to tell me how to live without you. I'm not sure I can ever do that.

I love you, Nikita, my beloved Siberian snow dog. I pray to meet you again at Rainbow Bridge.

My heart goes out to you. I was lucky that my beloved husky died in my arms. It seems that you are not sure about the death of your pet. I can't even begin to imagine how hard that must be.

My thoughts and blessings are with you....

I'm Sorry for Your Loss
by: Nicole

I am so sorry you lost your companion. I couldn't imagine losing one in my arms. Reading your story has showed me that you never truly heal from losing your baby.

I recently lost my little man to what we think was a vehicle accident, but now we are unsure if it was a vehicle or what type of accident it was. I have so much guilt from not being here for him when he needed me. I may have been able to save him if he was found sooner. I will never know.

I hope your pain from losing yours gets lighter with time and you are able to cherish special memeories you shared.
