Your Roscoe is such a beautiful guy! Were you able to bury him on your property? You're so lucky to be able to have a lovely way to mark his resting place. I only rent, so was not able to bury my Daisy. I had her ashes returned to me and they made a clay casting of her paw. I bawled like a baby when I went to pick up her urn and pawprint. I still clutch them to my heart and sob.
Flkeysgrl - yes, your pain will ease up someday. I don't think it ever goes away completely. It's been 5 weeks since I lost Daisy and last night was the 1st night I didn't cry myself to sleep. I miss her so terribly, I didn't think I could stand it for the first few weeks.
Thanks! Yes, he was just a super handsome guy, I love him sooo much <3 I have not buried him yet. Haven't had the heart to dig the hole yet :( My plan is to bury him in our garden, which he loved so much, and have him close so I can visit his tomb everyday. Right now he is just here besides me, in my office. I know what you mean about the picking-up of the remains, I really broke down in a thousand pieces. I also thought I was going crazy, it was unbearable, but my friends pushed thru and came to visit almost everyday. That was good. And this forum. Then things kind of "normalised", but I do get surprised with grief in the middle of a supermarket, while driving, while eating dinner, the pain comes unexpectedly. It is so so so desperately sad. Lots of hugs to you and your lovely Daisy <3
