Today’s is my birthday, but I got very emotional when I open my cards from family not to see my girl Sandy on it. People probably think get over it but I was crying and couldn’t control it. Family under stood. She would bring my cards to me And always a gift. That’s what I missed her running up the stairs with card in her mouth and wagging her tail 😢.

My wife always gets me birthday, anniversary and Christmas cards from the cats. When Nomar died, it was tough. For a year after, she would just give me one from all of them and sign them the kitties.

Dear Josephine,

I am very sorry for your loss of your beloved Sandy. She certainly was adorable! Thank you for sharing the stories you have about her and the delightful photo images in your other posts.

Our family and my ex and I would on occasion sign Holiday and Birthday cards for each other, with our pet's names (often as if they had misspelled their own name. Lol) and we would draw paws or place an actual paw print on them, but I have never, not ever, heard of a pet actually DELIVERING a greeting card to anyone!! That is MAGNIFICENT!! Well done SANDY! What an incredible memory and memorable experience to have. : )

I wish you the Happiest of Birthday wishes on this very special day.

Cheers!

Kind regards,
James

My deepest condolences on the loss of your sweet little girl. I read your other posts and looked at Sandy’s pictures. What a sweetie! I can imagine her running up the stairs with your card in her mouth. Seven years is still so young! Terribly unfair my dear! Wishing you peaceful memories of your precious Sandy to comfort you at this sad time.

My Birthday was July 25th and I had a similar experience. I cried a lot that day and my family feels I should be over it too. It’s hard to explain how painful it is. It’s not a choice. It is just awful. I’m really sorry

I can not even talk with anyone I know in my personal life about my grief anymore, they aren't interested, don't care, or think it is not normal for me to still be grieving. I gave up. I just have to act "Fake Happy." I'm sure it is why I hang out on this forum so much. Because it makes me fell less alone. At least people here understand what I am experiencing.

Thanks for reply. I understand your pain. But we have to think of all happy times they gave us. Occasion s going to be hard the first year for us all. I’m dreading Xmas. As she used the baubles as balls around the place. She brought us great joy and I’m sure yours did too.
It’s not easy but we have to try.
Take care

I am sorry you felt sad on your birthday. Sandy was clearly a special dog. I can envision her running up the stairs, tail wagging, delivering a birthday card to you. That is so sweet. Thank you for sharing that story.
