Picked up my dog's ashes today

  1. If you are a dog lover, I would love a few words of sympathy.

    My dearly beloved dog of 14 years died last week.

    It was clearly her time to go. I have absolute clarity on that.

    But I miss her terribly.

    I took her to work with me everyday. If the employer wouldn't accept the dog, I refused the job.

    I thanked her every day for living with me.

    I cry at least once an hour.

    I know that my pain is related to how wonderful our time together was.

    You pet lovers know this pain.

    Thanks for your well wishes.
  2. Hugs to you.
  3. Tears are falling...Im so sorry...I love my girls so much and even thinking about them passing breaks my heart. My heart goes out to you. Lots of hugs....Im thinking of you.
  4. awww..... :crybaby: reading this broke my heart...

    I'm so sorry about your loss... if you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me.
  5. Aaaw, that is so sad :sad: But at least you gave her a good life, and I'm sure she's somewhere nice now:cry:
  6. Oh ProfNot, I totally understand and sympathize with your pain...I lost one of my beloved cats almost 4 years ago..and I STILL cry about her all the time.

    There's nothing I can say or do to make it easier, and I won't lie and tell you time makes it better...because the pain never really goes away...there's always that void.

    But, in time, you are able to focus on the good times you had with your pup, and think of her fondly.

    You are such a fabulous doggie-mom, I can tell from your post. Your pup was so lucky to have had you as her human.

    Thanks for sharing your story, and please feel free to PM me if you need to talk, or even cry.........
  7. :sad: I'm so sorry. I remember picking up my dogs ashes, it was the worst ride home ever by myself to an empty home. She was the sweetest thing, so gentle and loving, but she was very old, and had alot of problems...she lived a very good life with us. Just try to remember all of the good times and that you gave her a good life and she had a loving mom and friend.
  8. I am so sorry, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers. ((HUGS)) for you today!
    Just know that your lil sweetie is in a better place now. I wish I could make it easier for you:crybaby:
  9. OMG..I am so incredibly sorry.....I cant begin to say how much.I have a 12 yr old dog..I cant even begin to imagine losing him......he is my life!
    we are here for ya..anytime....**HUGS!**
  10. I am so sorry!

    But remember, we love you and we're here for you!
  11. I am so sorry for your loss. You were blessed to have 14 wonderful years with your baby.:heart: Hugs:heart:
  12. **hugs** Your pup led a fabulous life, she would have thanked you for that. You are in my prayers.
  13. Big hugs to you. You are in my thoughts and my heart goes out to you.
  14. My 10 year old passed away in July of '06 and i STILL can't get over it...and I know I never will. I have his ashes as well, it was hard at first having his ashes... and I almost regretted it but im glad I have him physically again as well as in my heart where he will always be. I totally understand your pain. Here's a little something that might help you that helped me through my tougher days...

    I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
    I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
    I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
    "It's me, i haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here"
    I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the coffee.
    You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to touch me.
    I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
    I longed to take your bags, i wish i could do more.
    I was with you while you held my ashes; you tend it with such care.
    I want to re-assure you, that i'm not inside of there.
    I walked with you to your house, as you fumbled for your key.
    I gently put my paw on you; i smiled and said "it's me".
    You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
    I tried so very hard to let you know, that i was standing there.
    It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
    To say to you with certainty "I never went away".
    You sat there very quietly, then smiled, i think you knew...
    in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
    The day is over...I smile and watch you yawn
    and say "Good-night, I love you, I'll see you in the morning."
    And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
    I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
    I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
    Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.


  15. Oh that poem :crybaby:Has the same effect on me as rainbow bridge.

    I have every sympathy with you. My cat of 14 and a half years was put to sleep about 3 weeks ago. She lived with my parents and I haven't been round to their house yet since it happened :sad: When I go round we'll be burying her ashes somewhere in their garden.

    If you want to PM me, feel free :heart:
