Getting Ready to say Goodbye

Learning to Let the Tears Flow

Today was a sad day for Dawn. She got Abby as a pup on Christmas Eve. So we sat and watched our video a couple or ten times :-) and just bawled together. It's been a strange month. We light candles all the time for Abby, and we still have her bed in the same place with all her squeaky toys. We just can't bear to take it away right now. And Dawn still barks every time the doorbell rings, to replace the Abby bark that isn't there any more. I've just put a wall some of the time, 'cos it hurts so much to cry. But I know that letting the tears flow is the best thing to do. And here they come again.

We're thinking of you and Abby today.

I know what a difficult time this must be for you...I felt the same when we lost Sunnie. Within two months we brought Roxxie home, because the pain in my heart was too much to carry with me every day, and I needed a new little friend to ease the burden somewhat. Roxxie did not replace dog could ever replace Sunnie, but she did refocus my attention to caring for her instead of dwelling on my grief.

Everyone grieves differently, and I am not suggesting that you go out and get another dog. Only you can decide if and when another dog in your life is right for you. I think of Sunnie each and every single day. Please just know that I am thinking of you and praying for you, and that your Dogster friends are here for you.

Our hearts understand your pain. It is only when we let the tears flow that healing can begin. Abby will live forever in your hearts and even though you can't see her she is by your side always. Cherish all the good memories and smile for the love you shared and cry as you need to. Those of us that have lost pups and loved ones truly understand your pain.

Christmas and New Years were hard for mommy too, she misses Ava. I just wanted to say we haven't forgotten you.
