I am so tired of people acting like my baby never existed. They don't mention her, never say anything and get uneasy when I do. My Dali was with me 24/7 for over 12 years. I took care of her and she of me. I always made sure no one left the doors open, didn't want her to get lost or run over. I groomed her and fed her, cooked for her and even called her on the phone and asked whomever was watching her to let her hear my voice. I bought ribbons and clothes for her, special shampoos. Would take her to "bark in the park" every year and everyone played with her and talked about how sweet and beautiful she is. At the pet blessing, I always made sure the priest blessed her with holy water. She is my life, not WAS. I don't know what to do. You don't wipe out all those years of loyalty and love because they go to rainbow bridge. I don't know how to cope. I look for her, I smell things she layed on. How do we get through this??? NO one ever acknowledges her anymore. Has only been 3 weeks, 4 on Saturday. Everyday seems like a lifetime without her. Odd how days used to go by fast, now they don't go by at all. I stay up at night and cry for her, turn the fan on for her like she always wanted. I am at a loss. This is worse than anything I ever endured. Oh, how I long for and miss my baby. I still haven't even told some of my relatives that live in the same town. When they come over, if they ask I will tell them, but otherwise not. Too painful. I don't know which way to turn now, being lonely and sad is terrible.
Dali, as much a daughter as any human... pure love
Until we meet again
