So sorry for your loss :-( Today is 3 weeks for me too..... In reading your last post I thought the poem I found might help.... I know it helps me in hopes this is what TinkerBelle would have said if she could..
We did get another dog and it happened to be on the same day I picked up TinkerBelle's ashes and the 2 week anniversary and was also the day after I had my first and only dream of TinkerBelle... so I like to think she had something to do with it. It is not the same, but it is also nice to know we are giving another dog a loving home and hopefully our poodle, Bear, will come to be better friends with him. They do ok, but I know for him it is just something new and he had been with TinkerBelle his whole life (there was only about 1 yr difference in their ages). Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask.... To a poor and lonely stray I'd give: My happy home. My bowl, cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys. The lap which I loved so much. The hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which spoke my name. I'd will to the sad scared shelter dog the place I had in my human's heart, of which there seemed no bounds. So when I die please do not say, "I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand." Instead go find an unloved dog; one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to him.
This is the only thing I can give...the love I left behind. Paw hugs and prayers for you!
I love and miss you TinkerBelle! "Sometimes there is a dog who is so special, she is able to wrap herself so completely around your heart it is impossible to tell where you begin and she ends."
