Zen My Beautiful Boy

by Tracy



On April 15th 2009 our beautiful dog Zen peacefully left this earth plane. I love and miss him so so much.

Saying goodbye to him was the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. It broke my heart completely. It's so hard to let go.
He was everything to me. He truly was my best friend.

I know that in my time here on the earth plane I will never have the same bond we shared, with anyone or anything else. It was special, and I feel lucky to have known him. To have shared almost 5 years with such a beautiful soul.

The experience of his unconditional love and his loyalty has taught me so much and has changed my life. Who would have thought that such a sad little unwanted pup that we rescued (without really planning on getting a dog) would turn into one of the most wonderful relationships I've ever had?

They say.... a dog's lifespan is like a twinkle of a star in the universe, the influence of a canine companion on one's soul is forever. I truly believe this!

I love you with all my heart, Zen.
Wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge, my beloved dog son.
We will be together again.xxxxx

Moved by Zen

My little dog, a heart beat at my feet.

A saying to you, and Zen, from me, by Edith Wharton, that only a dog lover can identify with.

Your sweet baby...

Your Zen looks like a Pitbull...I have one and there is something about them that draws our hearts like no other...my sympathy to you in the loss of your truly beloved friend. I understand.

Broken Hearts
by: trog's dad

I know how you feel. My heart is completely shattered, more so than any human has hurt me. Yours and mine were short times with our best friends.

Thanks for posting. I've received so many from people that had old dogs that it would make my heart sink further. I wish I would have had the choice of having to put my dog down in old age. I don't think they read my memorial very closely.

I'd like to say it gets better but.... that has not been my experience yet. I just keep thinking about all the times we shared and wanting more.

Take care. See ya at Rainbow Bridge. It's the first place I'm going look for when I leave here.
