January 20, 1994 - October 30, 2010. She had a good run.

I think I'm going to be sick.

DD is not doing well. Actually, none of us are. Any advice on how to help her through this?

I'm so sorry The best thing we could do was talk about our dog and the memories and stories we had. I made a card with a collage of his pictures on the front and a poem inside signed by all of us. It made me cry reading it but I felt better too. I had them printed and sent out to family and friends who knew Max well. It felt better knowing that there were others thinking about him too.
I still cry when I see a dog like him, though.
My DD will sometimes just say something that we used to do with Max and then say that we will always have that memory in our hearts.
I will be thinking of you all, it is so hard.

It's been hit or miss with DD today. She'll be fine and then WHAM, she starts crying.

She has decided that in the spring, we need to plant a memorial garden with roses and un-poison ivy. So sweet, it had me in the bathroom crying.

I miss my sweet Abbykitty. Such an old girl, we knew it had to happen soon, but still...I want my kitty.

Very sorry for your loss.I still think about the pets I have had through the years.The good memories are so much more abundant,but the pain of their death is so very sharp. I always say I will not get another pet and then I do.Each has given their special touch in our lives,and we love them all so much.
Hugs.
