I Lost My Dog Today

My dog died and it sucks.  It was eerie when I took out his papers this evening and read that his birthday was today, how often do deaths occur on birthdays?  The odds are 1:365 I guess.  He was suffering for a couple days and on some level I am relived that he is in peace but I miss him so much.  It's hard because the kids miss him too.  I couldn't tell them the truth they're so little and innocent.  I said that he went to spend the rest of his days on the farm and wouldn't be coming back.  I figured it conjured up images of big green fields for him to run in.  That's where I'd like to think he was too.

  1. My heart is heavy for you. We just lost our Maggie about a month ago..It is so hard and hurts so bad, I couldn't even blog about it. I think you were smart to tell the kids about the farm.

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs.

  2. Sorry for your loss, very sweet drawing of him. I like to think also that they are running around in a big green field, I still think about our first dog Sam, been many years since he died. They live a short time but give us such a wonderful gift that lives on forever.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. He took up a lot of your heart, and it's so hard that our animals have such short lives.And yes, you don't want him suffering, you want him well and running about, but you can remember him that way.

  9. My profound sympathy to you. I can totally relate. Losing a fur baby can be as devastating as losing any other family member - they are are loving and innocent! My heart goes out to you.

  13. Mary i am so sorry to hear about your loss. When you loose a pet there is a huge gap missing. When my dog Holly passed the house felt really weird for many many weeks. Kirstin x
