You are so right when you state we hurt like losing a family member. Maybe because they WERE a part of the family as far as we are concerned. I know losing my Chrissy was far worse then any family member so far..... at least they were very old and led a wonderful full life. Time is the only thing that helps,it softens the raw pain, and we learn to live with what is left. Just please try to remember your baby loved you very much and would hate to see you grieving so badly. Celebrate the memories and the love you two shared, don't dwell on the parting.Try to keep busy and take care of yourself.Please know you were blessed to share that part of your life with your dog, and maybe in the future you can allow another into your heart, not to forget the one you lost, but to honor him by sharing all that love with another. RIP beautiful golden blessing!

I am so sorry for the lost of your best friend I can't say I know how you feel,but I had to put my best friend MOE my best friend to sleep 3 weeks ago it was sudden he wasn't acting himself so I took him to my vet took X-RAYS when she walk back in the room I knew it was not good I too had to put my best friend to sleep[ it was hard I held him till his life was gone and I had lost my best friend he was only 6.
may i add this small saying
they walk with us,they sleep with us,
they sit with us when we are blue,
and when it time for them to go,a part of us go too

A Golden Blessing
by: Doreen UK

Jeannine I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Golden retriever to this dreadful disease of cancer. The first days are the worst and one can't even begin to understand what a loss does to our body and mind. The pain is horrendous and you feel as if it will last forever. I lost my beloved husband of 44yrs. to lung cancer 19 months ago. I nursed him for 3yrs.39days. I took one day at a time and this has been the saving of me. I took 6 months off to do nothing but let TV and the God Channel nurture me from my sorrow. I have even lost pets and this pain was also more than I could bear. It took days into months before I started to feel some healing take place inside of me that gave me the Hope to go on each day. Life is so full of heartache and sorrow and when a love one dies this sorrow is magnified to the degree that life becomes unbearable for some time. If you believe in God then let Him in to your life to help carry your sorrow and grief and to allow you the time and space to recover from your grief. Don't look beyond today. You won't feel so crushed. I wish you Peace and Comfort from your loss.
