You speak of Rascal with so much love. I'm very sorry that you have been parted from your dear friend. I know you can't accept this now, but you could not have forseen what happened. My Tuffy was 5 yrs and passed on Jul 26, 2010. I never thought we'd have to part so soon. Even tho' I took him to the vet 3 times and spent every day and night with him for a week, unforeseen circumstances took him from my life. I cursed my self daily for so many days. I thought I should have done more, been more aware, something. Slowly I've accepted there was no way I could have stopped what happened.
I did the best I could and so did you. Unfortunately, our friends can't tell us how they feel or where it hurts. They love us and forgive us. I realized that my guilt was beginning to interfere with my remembering our times together. I also found that by racking myself with sorrow wondering "If I had only", I was avoiding the grieving process we all must pass through. Your heart is freshly broken. You are still in shock from the sudden loss, so please be gentle with yourself. Keep coming back. We care. We've all stood where you stand today. Wishing you peace,
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Tuffy, My Puppy Love
