My baby Angelo

by Vanessa

I remember that night, we were waiting for your arrival. I was so excited I went earlier that day to petco and just bought tons of things. Food, toys, a set where you can eat without straining your head. A leash , you name it then I bought it. I was 20yrs old, my friend dropped you off after a long drive from Denver to the snowy mountain town. As soon as I saw you I just cried your name came to my mind "Angelo". I woke up my family we were so happy to have you, I remember my dad saying with so much excitement "you have brought happiness back into our home". You were my baby boy, you loved me right away cried when I was gone...we were so in tuned with each other. I had you for 13yrs.. people mistaken you for a bear and sometimes a lion...I am just heart broken you left . I was blessed to be with you when God sent for you. I cried amd hugged you and just said thank you for being there. You can go Angelo, at that moment you took your final breath and took a piece of me. I never knew how much emotion connection we had until you left.i am heartbroken, devastated and lost. I feel for you at your grave it has been 3days I can't believe you are gone. My baby Angelo.. thank you for loving me and i hope your still with me my baby boy. Mama loves you and I don't know what to do without you..

My baby Angelo
by: Doreen UK

Vanessa I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Angelo. Loving a pet is a beautiful experience and even more painful is the loss. A pet has a very different love experience and when you lose them the bond broken is so very painful that you do wonder how you will recover from such a loss.
I have lost many birds and one flew out of the cage on the coldest day of winter. How my heart ached for this loss which continued. Then I lost my husband of 44yrs. to a deadly cancer the birds for me was a lovely distraction from the cancer but also a joy caring for them. Such rich memories but Oh! how bad the pain of loss is when we lose them. TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME. NURTURE yourself through the grief. Only in time when the healing has taken place will everything feel different. You have so much love to give which would be wasted if you didn't invest in another pet.
Pets have a shorter life span than People. Once we accept this we can process their loss much easier knowing that each day we will find joy again in giving and receiving this love. It is what we put in to our life that gives it value and meaning. Don't close down your life with the fear of death and loss of a pet. You will be building up such rich memories that you will have forever and will enhance your life. I am sorry for your loss of Angelo.

Vanessa. My heart goes out to you. You will never forget Angelo, nor would you want to. He showed you how deep your feelings can go. My cat, Reg, died 15 years ago and I still miss him terribly - he was the one who showed me how deeply I could feel for a friend. I remember his head against my head the night before he was to be euthanised - he had terrible, painful cancer - (I brought my bedding downstairs that weekend so I could sleep with him). I never had another cat for years after, then 4 years ago THREE stray cats came into my life and I started to feel those feelings again, of deep contentment, of love, wanting to protect them, but Reg has stayed in my heart all along, showing me how to do it. Grieve - you will never stop grieving - and one day, perhaps many years from now, you will find another friend who you can share your love with - not to 'replace' Angelo - he will still be in your heart, 'showing' you how to do it.
