the sadness comes in waves, repeatedly, consistently, inevitably. I see her everywhere, and I miss her all the time. my most faithful companion, my very best friend.

I am so sorry. I dread the day when I will need to deal with this. I imagine the sadness does come in waves. How could it not? Such a precious picture up there. Hugs.

We lost our dog three years ago and sometimes when I'm thinking of something silly or crazy he did, I laugh and am so happy to have had such an incredible dog. But at the same time, saddened by the fact that he's gone.

It gets easier, but you never forget. xo

Rachel: yes, this is what I'm realizing. that I will never forget. I do hope one day I will be able to remember something silly or crazy she did and laugh. xo

I'm in tears thinking about your loss and the loss that I will someday face... You loved her hard and well... You gave her a home and loved her unconditionally... All doggies deserve such love.You were her Mom, I'm hoping you guys adopt again and give another dog the chance of such a happy life. Blessings to you.
