My Dogs kept me sane

I lost my lovely Shanook on 8/sept /15 . She was the eldest in the house at 11.5 years. Thank you for staying with me after David died 4 years ago. You were more than a dog , you were my soulmate and best friend . You understood so much , especially me . I will always love you . Be safe in Rainbow Bridge with David and Dharma
No more pain you have , Thank you Shanook with all my love , you were so special

Thankyou Becky for replying . I am sorry about your dog also your Mum . The pain eases a little although I can feel her presence sometimes. Maybe my husband , that's when I joined this lovely forum) needed a dog for comfort . The grieving and guilt have only subsided after nearly 5 years . I can see now that it was my thinking that was blaming him . All will be easier and I never thought that I'd be able to say that , may God Bless you all
As our recovery book says it does get easier but it has taken me a lot longer

Ways to help you grieve
by: Becky

I am so sorry for your loss of Shanook. The pain will ease in time, but you will always think of Shanook every day. My Bailey died 4 years ago, and not one day has passed that I have not said his name or thought of him. When he passed away I thought I was going insane. I do believe something snapped inside of me that I just can't get back. I am also very sorry for the loss of your husband. The pain you must be having is unbearable I am sure. I loss my Mother two years ago, the same month Bailey died, and I still grieve for both of them.
Bailey was my dogchild, and I will forever love him, to help me with my grieving I have placed wind chimes in a tree above his grave. When I hear these wind chimes, I like to think that Bailey is hearing them too in heaven, and that we are thinking of each other at the same time. I also have solar lights on his grave. Two weeks before he died for some strange reason I went around singing this "Little Light Of Mine", and "I Saw The Light, I Saw The Light". These songs have given me so much comfort.
Another way to help with my grieving was I posted a tribute their & about 5 pictures of Bailey. Family & friends can leave messages & doggy treats. I also went to another website, It is awesome! I still go there on the days that hit me hard. Everyone there understands your pain because they have it too.
I will be praying for you to have comfort, peace, and for family & friends to have understanding, and for them to be there for you.
Praying for you & Shanook,
Becky & Bailey
