I’m truly so very sorry. She sounds like she’s your *Heart Dog* that special one who shares your soul. I won’t try and minimize what’s happening or sugar coat it, you already know, you’re already grieving. So here are something’s I wish I’d know-keep a journal and start writing down all those sweet funny and quirky things she does daily. Take happy videos and pictures. When the time comes keep her personal possession in a plastic air tight bag, like her collar, toys or blanket. Her scent will be soo very special. Ask for paw prints clay and ink on paper. Some like a fur clipping.My girl died just after she turned 12. She saved my life as well, and made it worth living. Their unconditional love is like none otherI’m not very religious but I do have faith and I believe we all have souls that never die, even when are bodies are gone. I believe my Tankie is always near by and cherish the signs I’m given that prove to me she is. After all, I’m still her Mommy❣️ We’ll be here for you. Things are crazy in the world right now and responses may be slower but we are here for each other. Many big hugs for you and your girl,,,,,
Olivia I’m soo sorry. I wish you’d had more time, I wish we had them in our lives forever. I also know surreal is the best way to describe the days and weeks after. Nothing feels right. I still expect her to push the bathroom door open with her nose because she had to know where I was at all times. She was my bottle fed baby.
I don’t know your girls name. I’d love to know more about her if you’d like. Or a picture❣️
I’m winging my way through this new forum set up and not sure how to *follow/subscribe* to a member or I would have responded right away. I’m sorry for the delay but please know you were in my thoughts and I’ll be here if you need me, many hugs,,,,,
Hi,Thank you all for your condolences. Thankfully, we had a beautiful last day, watching movies and cuddling from the AM to PM. Her name was Heika, and she was a German Shepard. She died at 13 and a half years old and lived a full and happy life, although of course, it still doesn’t feel like enough. It’s been 3 days now, and I still wonder where she is when I don’t see her begging for food under the table anymore.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of her. She had such soulful eyes.
Thanks so much for all of your support. People in my day to day don’t always understand the loss. They expect me to move on so fast. I don’t feel so alone on here.
