Best Christmas Gift Ever

by Sarah
(Washington, MO)

Sweet Sophie came into my life during the Christmas season 14 years ago. Her first "Mom" decided she did not have time for her, and I asked if I could give her a home--the best question I have ever asked.

This is my first Christmas without her. I had to say goodbye to her last March.

With each passing season and event, I think "Sophie is no longer here to experience this. She will never see another Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Christmas...." 2012 represents the beginning of an entire year that she won't be on this Earth. My heart hurts.

Sophie, I miss you. I know you are with God now; your Spirit has been freed from a body that was suffering. I know our Spirits will meet again. But my breath still catches when I think of you, I remember those last moments we had together, a song will remind me of you....and I feel your loss, acutely.

I love you, Sophie. There is no one else like you and there never will be. I will carry you in my heart forever.

It'll be alright.

I'm sure Sophie will come back to you in one way or another. I know some don't believe in reincarnation but if she misses you dearly, she'll come back. Dogs have souls and they'll come back one day. Just keep looking.

I understand how you feel
by: Denise

I too lost my beloved friend, Gazoo, this past February. I was blessed to have him in my life for nearly 17 years. Every new season, every significant date that passed this year I felt his loss again deeply. This too is my first Christmas without my beautiful tabby.
I hope it helps you to know that I share in your pain and remembrances of our friends. I know we will see them again and that they are here with us always, in our hearts.
God bless.
