Dear Hman, Your story of sudden, shocking loss just breaks my heart. Please contact Ginny at the email address she provided for you. Some private, one-on-one communicating would be a tremendous help for you right now. What happened to your precious baby is not your fault! If you had even suspected that there was a danger of something so terrible happening, you would have moved heaven and earth to have prevented it. I know you would have, you know it, and your angel does too. The amount of time we have with them has nothing to do with the magnitude of our love. The bonds of love are formed when we meet them, and it is always so very hard when we have to go on without them by our sides. But we do, and the pain does ease in time. Finding other people who understand the depth of our sorrow is one of the most important things we can do. You have found an entire community of such people here. Here, you are not judged; you are accepted with open arms. What happened to your baby is unspeakably tragic, and it was an accident. I firmly believe that when the end of our time together comes so quickly and unexpectedly, it is painless and peaceful for them. Before the impact she was running for all she was worth, with a happy goal in mind. When it happened, her little feet simply left the ground and she found herself on gossamer wings, soaring to her destiny like the little angel she has always been. I can't imagine a more beautiful destination than Rainbow Bridge. She didn't have time to suffer, she never grew frail and weak. She is a beautiful young pup forever and always. She does exist. In your heart, in your memories, and in reality, she exists. Einstein proved that energy does not die; only matter does. What you miss most of all right now is her physical presence. As you begin to recover from this most shocking loss, you will find that she can never leave your heart. She remains there, firmly snuggled into her own spot forever. You, your surviving Chi, and your sweet little angel are all in my thoughts and prayers. xoxoxo Susie
