Loss

Today I'm having a bit of a hard time.

A friend of mine earlier this week lost her Heart Dog to cancer.
Gehrig and Meadow were fast friends as puppies, and I still have visions of the two German Shepherds romping around and playing together.  Her loss reminded me of my own.

I miss my girl.



We lost her, very unexpectedly and quickly, on December 30, just three months ago.  Cancer is devestating.  I still look for her when I walk through the door at home.  Her.  Not another dog, her.  That alone tells me that I am still working through the healing.  And am not ready for another dog.  So I'll listen, and wait.

And continue to spring clean the yard, and having that longing for puppy feet and puppy breath and puppy antics every time I find things like this.



So, then, I'll distract myself, because that always works.

Hello:)
I sympathize you and I understand you correctly. I have two dogs (girls), and one of them is old. I know that I need to prepare for her departure, but I can not. It is difficult... Greetings!

Many heart-healing vibes are heading your way and to your friend. Losing a pet is so, so hard.

Awww I so know that feeling - it took us three years to get another dog. You'll know when the time is right. (((HUGS))) Holly XOXO
