i just cremated my 11 year catahula im broken he forced me to run in the mountains swim in lakes and understand the thrill of chasing and our bond was as if no words were needed we both knew how much we loved each other he slept with me until he couldnt jump onto the bed then i got the steps so he could i know talking helps but im not there yet all i do is look for him hold his blanket and toy theres a hole in me a deep feeling of loneliness i brought some of his ashes to his favorite spots he loved freedom so i dont want him confined to a box i want the world to know how precious and wonderful animals are when u let them show u their take on life i have made plans to volunteer as a dog walker at our shelter but that wont happen rite away u have to go thru training im crying as im typing part of me waiting to hear him bark up the stairs telling me to come down and hang out with him i know i will never get over this but get used to it i want him i need him i need the us but i know thats over so this story is my first attempt to heal and i appreciate the oppurtunity

I lost my beloved pet Sadie yesterday. I know the hole in your heart hurts like the dickens. I keep seeing her face and wish she were here. But as you I find it hard to cope. I know one day it will get better for both of us. Have you ever read the Rainbow Bridge Poem? If not go to the site, it will comfort you a little bit.

We both lost our best friends.

Michel there are no words to pacify or help you in your sorrow over your loss of cody. He was so precious to you. Your love for him was so strong that your pain is unbearable.
When our loved one dies whether person or pet we are left with an EMPTINESS so great that it swallows us up. We want our LOVED ONE back immediately so that we can function and continue living.
When we are born we have someone to nurture us and bring us up and teach us all we need to learn in life. When we die there is no one to teach us how to handle loss. Going through this grief is almost like the journey of life with all its sorrows. I want my husband back. My husband died 5 months ago. He liked listening to music and many songs hurt me because he is not here to listen to them anymore. Michel you will go through a lot of pain before healing takes place and you are in a more comfortable place with your loss. Start writing in a journal your history with Cody and what a difference he made in your life. This will be very therapeutic and healing and you will have these memories forever. I hope that you will continue to give your love to another pet and so continue the circle of life for all those pets who need a loving home.
