I miss Lilly so much

by Stefanie

Lilly is (I just can't type was yet) a tiny 3 lb Yorkie with the sweetest personality I've ever seen in a dog. She is 3 1/2 years old and such a calm, content dog. If you accidentially shut her in a room, she will not bark or scratch to get out, she'll just patiently wait for you to find her. Lilly would sleep with me every night and with every nap. If I came home from work tired, she'd nap with me no matter how long. She never woke me up in the morning, she just waited to me to wake up then would get so excited to see me. Lilly was also loved by my husband and two daughters ages 10 and 11. She's so kind and sweet. I can't explain how lost I am.

Last night I let her out to potty. I turned my back for 15 seconds in the doorway and and she was gone. We live in the county and it's really dark at night. We looked and looked for hours but no luck. Since it was so instant, my husband thinks a animal possibly a coyote got her. I don't know how I would not have heard it but I just don't undrestand how she could be gone in a instant.

Words cannot express my grief. I keep looking at her pics on my cell phone and all I can do is cry. We miss her so much and it hasn't even been a day. I wish i could bear to upload a pic but I can't at this point. I just want her to somehow come back. I miss our time together. I'm off on Fridays and my girls are in school and it was just the two of us. I can't bear the thought of getting through this Friday. I miss and love you Lilly Anne.

How do you get over a loss like this. I just want to cry and wake up and have Lilly back.

How are you doing?
by: Kathie

I hope you are healing, remembering your sweet Lilly with more happy memories and fewer tears. Our animals work their way into our hearts in a way not one else can. They love us unconditionaly. I am into day 7, My Alfie. Same story I let my two little Chihuahuas out, just a couple of minutes, Alfie was just done, and Jr. was terrified. We have spent every hour outside of work looking for him. Just gone. We are also in the country and fear the same. I wonder do we ever accept or do we keep looking, hoping, praying.

Thank you
by: Stefanie

Thank you so much Dorene and whoever posted anomously. Your stories each touched my heart and my heart goes out to you two also. I guess it goes to show if you love deep you will hurt deep. I still miss Lilly terribly and can't believe she's not there when I wake up or come home. She was my tiny angel and my grief is still so strong. Since I've faced the fact that she's gone I pray that with time it will hurt a little less. I'm grateful for the time I had with her. She forever made an impact on my life. I pray the two of you will also fun comfort with your losses as time goes by.

I miss Lilly so much
by: Doreen U.K.

Stephanie I am so sorry for your loss of Lily from your family. This is the worst part of grief is wanting our loved one back. It is very unbearable pain to feel this loss. Inside you also feel a wave of PANIC. Thinking. "I can't do this grief thing" " I just want my lily back as she was". The days of grief are so long and very painfull and you will wonder how you will get through this sorrow. As I have said often to everyone. This is a common PAIN OF GRIEF we all feel so we all know what each other is going through, but it is also a SOLO journey that we each go through on our own with its own memories that only you as a family will understand. It is also a PAIN that there is no medication for. There are some losses in life we do get over in time, but others we will never get over. You could keep a Lilly journal and keep writing letters to her and also put in pictures. You will have this journal FOREVER. It is also a very therapeutic way of coping with grief. Your children would love this idea and they can write their own messages in this journal. When you feel better you may feel a need to have another dog in your life. Never to replace lilly. but to enhance your life and continue the circle of life with a pet.
