I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Sydney, what a beautiful girl she is.
Of course you miss her everyday and want her back everyday. The unconditional love we receive from our fur babies is so special and sometimes not found in our relationships with people. The love and joy you and Sydney shared will be with you forever.
I am reading a book by Jon Katz, Going Home, Finding Peace When Pets Die. When I was having a bad day yesterday, I found this passage helpful, perhaps you will too:
Dear beloved Friend:
It was my time to say goodbye, my spirit was fading, and I had been called home and away from you. I wished to be strong again, to roll in gross stuff, to eat all the things you hated me to eat, to run through the fields and the wood, to smell the stories of life, and to raise my nose to the wind and see the world all over again.
I know I leave you in loneliness and pain. I hope, in your grief and loneliness, that you remember how sad it would have been had we not had this time together, not had the chance to give each other so much.
I have gone, but I have not gone far. I will see you again and I will watch over you. Thank you for all you gave me. I ask that you remember me and grieve for me. And then, when you can, let the pain and grief go, freely and in peace and celebrate me.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care and be gentle with yourself. Cynthia.
