I'm very, very sorry for your loss. My pooch was put to sleep 3 weeks ago and it was kind of a traumatic experience so I know the pain you're feeling now. It is an unbearable, almost "how can I go on" type of feeling. These are some things that I have been doing to cope. First, I didn't try to erase his presence right away. So I left his food and water bowl in position. And then I cried, cried, screamed at the top of my voice in my house and car, cried, yelled, cried, and screamed and cried some more, pretty much every day for about a week. But, as much as I missed him, I knew I couldn't drown in despair, so I kept crying but I put away his bowls. I sniffed and hugged his blanket. I forced myself to get out and do things to create a different routine than the oe tat revolved around him, and I continued to cry. I still cry, I still miss him, but I'm not in the depths of dispare as I was initially. Its going to take time. It's not an easy journey but the pain will ease up a little as time passes. Maybe you can volunteer somewhere where there's animals that need love. We have a place here that takes in old dogs that need volunteers to love on them. Some days you won't want to leave the house and that's OK but there will be days when you'll have to force yourself to do something. I KNOW it hurts. I know you miss your baby, but you will heal and one day you may be ready to fall in love with another fur baby. You'll never be able to replace the one you loss but you'll have room in your heart again to love another. May God comfort you and take you through this difficult time.


Thank you for your kind and comforting words - It is hard, I am finishing up my Masters Degree and I have to continue to go to school and finish my research - It's been a week from hell...but it is getting better (a little, but I will take any relief I can get) I really appreciate your words - This forum has helped me A LOT because of beautiful people like yourself. I am praying for you too and I am so sorry for your loss- May God Bless you my friend and thank you from the bottom of my broken heart

I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand. My little Rowdy passed away August 6th. He would have been 18 yrs old in November. My links about rowdy are under " my sunshine left me today". I sung " You are my sunshine to him each day". I felt overwhelmed and depressed for about 6 weeks. Of course, I still miss him and I have my "down times" still. My vet shared a prayer/poem with me that helped me greatly and I read a book that gave me great comfort."Biblical Proof Animals Do Go To Heaven" by Steven H. Woodward. The prayer/poem is this: LOVING GOD, OUR BELOVED PET AND COMPANION, ROWDY, IS ON HIS FINAL JOURNEY. WE WILL MISS ROWDY DEARLY BECAUSE OF THE JOY AND AFFECTION ROWDY HAS GIVEN US.
BLESS ROWDYAND GIVE HIM PEACE. MAY YOUR CARE FOR ROWDY NEVER DIE. WE THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT THAT ROWDY HAS BEEN TO US, GIVE US HOPE THAT IN YOUR GREAT KINDNESS YOU MAY RESTORE ROWDY IN YOUR HEAVENLY KINGDOM ACCORDING TO YOUR WISDOM, WHICH GOES BEYOND OUR HUMAN UNDERSTANDING.
IN JESUS NAME,
AMEN

Thank you everyone! Your kind words of encouragement and sympathy have helped me get through this past week.

I do plan on re-telling his life story, not sure when.....still in a fog/haze

"It's been a long day without you my friend, and I 'll tell you all about it when I see you again......."

I love you Mr. Bear - you stole my heart :_-(
