beautiful inside and out

that is how my husband described my darling golden spaniel, George who died on 14 Sept 2012 and I still feel like my heart is broken. George came to me as a stray in 1997 he was a gentle loving puppy of about 7 months. I have never come across a dog that was so friendly and confident, he just believed everyone would like him.
They say angels are all around us and I believe that he was an angel sent to heal me in a very difficult time in my life. As time passed our bond grew stronger and stronger and for 15 years I spent many hours with him. I loved to kiss him and rub him and he just wanted to love back he would always love back more than you could ever love him. Whenever I sat down he wasn’t far away and if there was any chance that could be, there would be body contact. he slept in my bed even in it if it was very cold.
Last year he got very sick it seemed as if he was allergic to protein, with the help of an holistic vet I managed to feed him wholesome food cooking every day for him she gave me an extra 5 months with him, but eventually he couldn’t even eat what I was cooking, and he was in pain and I could see he wasn’t well, and had to make the most painful decision to set him free. I cant explain the deep sorrow and loneliness I feel not having my darling baby around me, it feels as if purpose has gone out of my life. Logic tells me life must go on and death is a part of life but the ache in my heart is unbearable.
thank you George for you companionship, loyalty and devotion. George my angel I miss you and know that you were really loved and I will never forget you.

Traci -

I am so sorry about the loss of your George. What a beautiful creature! It is so hard to let go of our babies with fur. Take comfort in knowing that you gave him a loving home. I lost my English Bulldog Chewy suddenly in May. I have a picture of her on my computer desk which I find comforting.

God Bless You,

Traci I am sorry for your loss of your George. It matters not what our logic says about life and death. WE HURT. Death was not the natural order of Life. It is because of SIN that we DIE. Jesus came to earth to live and die for us. He is a man of SORROWS ACQUAINTED WITH GRIEF. He gave us an example. HE WEPT. when Lazarus died. Mary mourned the death of her son Jesus. GRIEF is what happens to us when we lose a beloved person or pet. God created the animals for our pleasure. We will feel sad, angry, sorrowful, hurt, when we lose the love of our lives. George was to you a very special companion. You will mourn him for some time. Keep a George journal and write everything about your relationship with George. You will have this forever. Go on to Love another George 2nd. Just like in the movie BEETHOVEN 1st. 2nd. You can't replace George. But you will go on to have many more loving, tender memories with another dog. May you be comforted from your loss.
