Richard,

That picture is beautiful. Someone posted that to my Facebook not too long ago. My Sophie was all white, and the picture reminds me of her.

I can relate to how you love your babies......before my husband came along, Sophie and I were alone. We formed an amazing bond over 14 years. No one can understand that unless they have had that kind of bond. That's why coming here is so good for all of us. Because we truly understand.

I am at almost 4 weeks without her now. Right now, I just feel broken. It's nothing like I have ever felt. I can completely understand how you are feeling. But, I don't have other dogs. You have to comfort them and grieve as well. Take care of yourself. Hold tight to your babies.

Hugs,

MaryBeth

Hi Richard,
I am so sorry for your pain.  Losing one is agonizing and at almost 9 months I am still in pieces, losing two is unimaginable.  I am so glad you gave your fur babies such an amazing life and kept all four safe and happy.  Grief is not easy to deal with and with time you will pull through, but a loss so great will forever leave one empty.  We are all here for you and you still have Danny and Reebok to help you get through this hard time. 
Take Care

Barb,

Thank you again for your kind words of support.  As it turns, out, I do have had a rough outline for a book about my dogs that I began some time ago, but it is only now, after the events of the past two months, that I feel the urgency to take up the pen again. It means setting aside a current writing project so that I can focus my mind and efforts on this, but it seems the right thing to do since I can't think about anything else. I have written other works, mostly short stories, poetry, and fiction. I only began focusing my attention on writing less than a decade ago. You can see the nature of my topics on the author page in Amazon.com. The stories always seem to center around people and their animals.

I'll stay in touch, and I will be pleased to send you a copy of the finished work about my life with such special dogs.

Ann,

I have been reading your response to my post more than once the past couple of days, and I realize that we are never alone in our grief and sorrow. There are countless others like us who have loved and bonded with animals and then lost them.  A dear longtime friend of mine from Long Island, NY counseled me just yesterday to try little things each day to lessen the grief, without trying to put the thought of my dogs out of my mind. I never understood how it was possible for a grown man to go to pieces over the passing of a dog, but it's true. We form such an indelible bond that it seems a large part of us has been ripped away.  I can now understand how you can still feel so lost after nine months, but I am certain that enough time will still ease your grief and heal you.

If we learn that we can love a dog this much, then it must also be possible that we have always been meant to care for them, and to allow them to care for us. I will try to keep an open mind that at some point in time, I will be able to expand my heart to make room for another dog--not as a replacement for those that can never be replaced--but as a new member of the pack who will need us as much as we need them.

Bless you for your kindness,

Richard

Richard -

I realized after I hit post to my last reply that you are "dogauthor" so of course you are a writer! I cannot wait to read your books on Amazon, and wait with much anticipation for your book on the life you had with your two loving dogs, and the grief of losing them that goes with it. 

I think of you often, wondering how you are doing.  Keep in mind that all of our furbabies are waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge, and one day we will have a glorious reunion. Not too soon, though, as we have so many others to take care of, even ones we have not met yet.

I am so sorry for your losses. My heart goes out to you. My husband and I cried like a baby when our Scooter had to be put to sleep. After four months, I still cry a lot and at times my husband will break down (he's 62), we both miss him terribly. Scooter was healthy and the next day we were told he was bleeding internally and wouldn't make it through the day. Please know, that everyone at this forum is understanding and a big help.

Take care,
Jonancy...Scooters mama
