Getting Ready to say Goodbye

The Tears Flow Freely

I picked up Abby's ashes this evening from the Vet's office. On the way back home, I opened the window on the passenger side 'cos Abby always loved to put her nose out and let the wind just rush all over her face. When she got diagnosed with the osteosarcoma, the Vet said it wouldn't be good to take Abby for walks anymore , because it would put too much pressure on her leg (front), so I used to take her for a drive in the car every day. I guess this was our last drive together.

I know she's found lots of new friends at The Rainbow Bridge and I know she's not in pain anymore. And we miss her so much. There's no-one to bark when someone is at the front door, and there's no waggy tail in the mornings. And there's so many tears - I don't know where they all come from.

I haven't been able to go to Dogster until today, but I saw so many wonderful messages and so much love and support. It really does mean so much to us. Thank you.

My mom is keeping your pawrents in her pawrayers cuz she knows the pain they're feeling. Every time one of us left her she said that's what a dagger must have felt like driven through her heart. It's more painful than losing her mom, her brother or any other hoomans in her life.

I'm proud to be one of those who met you at the bridge when you arrived. We'll play and have a wonderful time up here with all the other angels...then one day we'll get to greet our pawrents as they arrive. Until then we're in God's hands,

I'm so blessed to have known of Abby and her humans. Abby, there can be no greater tribute to you and to your unconditional love for your people than the incredible diary that we Dogster members have been privileged to experience. I hope Sunnie has shown you all of the best patches of sunshine and soft, sweet grass where you and relax and enjoy God's Peaceable Kingdom on that side of the Rainbow Bridge. As for those who remain here...we will remember you always. And to Abby's human family...your Dogster friends will be here for you.
Sincerely, Roxxie and Deb

Oh, man...When you said, "I guess this is our last car drive together.", I started to cry...

I know how lonely you are, but Abby is ok. The homecoming of ashes is bittersweet, it hurts so much, yet you feel as though they're safe. I hope to hear from you from time to time. Please don't leave Dogster! You have been great people to know!

My Mom and I have been wondering how you were doing. I know it is so lonely without her, but she isn't in pain anymore and she is running with those heavenly dogs now. What a pleasure it was to see her pretty face on dogster, and what good owners you must have been. I am sure she led a wonderful life. I know it is probably too soon, but there are so many dogs in the shelter that need homes. There isn't another dog that could take her place, but I am sure you have a big enough heart to take in a dog that needs your love.

Hi Geoff,
Words cannot express how you feel. I know, because I was you three months ago. When I lost Simon, I thought my world had crashed. Nothing prepares you for how horrible you feel. I lost fifteen pounds and couldn't sleep. I had to see my doctor to help me! I took Simon's death worse than I took my mom's death. I'm still not over it, so I know how you feel. I am still in therapy about it. I go to a support group every month.
If its any consolation, it gets better over time. My heart goes out to you. Beautiful video by the way...
