I am so sorry about your loss. I know it's hard to imagine the time has gone by.

I lost my beloved dog, Maggie, last March. She was hit by a car. I had her for 11 years and she was my savior of sanity.

When my daughter moved out, Maggie was the only other warm body in my house. We spent many years loving each other.

I cried for weeks after she was gone....I talk to her now still. She was my best friend, the one living thing that would listen to me anytime I wanted to talk...

Anyhow, I wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss and I know that's not enough....

It's hard whether it's a human passing or an animal. Sometimes people who don't have pets just don't understand. A year already, it's amazing how much we still think of the one's we love, even when they are gone.

Just stopped by to tell you you won an award. You can come by my blog to pick it up. http://readitin7days.com.

Hope you are still enjoying your new family member though.:) You'll always remember each and every one, they never replace each other.

Thanks ladies. Wow Melanie, thanks much I'll stop by.
Sherri, I'm so so sorry. Gman thought a puppy would help. I was not ready for that at all...he was right. Something to think about.

I had one dog for about 10 yeas, my best friend, Theodora. She literally saved my life 3x! How do you say goodbye to a friend like that? WHen she left this world, I could NOT get another dog right away.... When Alvin passed away, I found myself at the SPCA and was halfway home with a black lab puppy before I even realized what I had done - autopilot - sometimes a wonderful thing. I needed something to distract me from my grief. Simon sure did! I like to think ALvin & Theodora are up there running and laughing and jumping, and slobbering :) Take care.

That's great Kelly. My brother also rescued a dog. She is so sweet - I keep telling him I'm going to steal her. Our expirence wasn't as great - for us or the dog.

I am so sorry for your loss Mona. I still feel like I can go outside and give my little girl wagon rides even though she is gone. I know how much it hurts and time feels like nothing when there is a hole in your heart...

It has been 3 months since my little Miffi died. She was killed by some wild animal on my parent's anniversary. She had been my best friend for 10 long years and was in no way ready to go. It hurts so much... She was my whole world, and had been since I was 7 years old. When I found her little body a part of me died inside and I haven't felt the same way since...

Even though she is gone nearly every week I walk down to her grave and sit and talk to her. I know my family thinks I am crazy, but I feel like I can still be close to her. I still cry a lot but I have an old collar of hers that I put around a toy that looks just like her. It sits on my bed and when I've had a tough day just thinking that Miffi is watching over me makes me feel better.

My parents bought a new dog 3 weeks ago but when I look in her eyes I just can't help but remember my baby that I no longer have with me; and this I feel prohibits me from truly loving her the way I loved my Miffi. I am sure I will love her in time but I am still mourning the loss of my best friend...
