Arrival Story: One of my friend found him into her garden. She called me and said to me: "I have your dog at my home ???" 2 days later I went to her home, and Teo became my beloved furkid for 14 years from December 7th, 1991 to March 19th, 2006.
Bio: Teo was a loyal, loving and exclusive dog. He had a lot of health's problems.
But everytime, I and my vet solved the problems: distemper (2 months after I brought him at home), epilepsy for 2 years, leishmania at 11 years old, degenerative paralysis (beginning 2000) and deafness for the last 2 years.
He lived for me, and I lived for him.
He passed away on March 19, 2006 and I was with him ...
He was like a child to me and was my first own dog and the best dog I ever knew.
I miss him so much! I miss giving him multiple daily hugs!
Teo didn't kiss me instead of kisses, he had a tender way of putting his muzzle against my eye or my ear !!!
He was my furbaby...
"I loved you Teone and I love you forever"

I’d like to tell you about my “beloved furkid Teo” and I.
I rescued him when he was 1 year old, by the vet’s estimation,
and we lived together for 14 years after that.
He was my first own dog.
Teo was a very affectionate, intelligent, protective and loving dog.
Teo and I went everywhere together.
He slept on my bed and was never quite relaxed unless his eyes were in constant contact with mine.
He enriched my life tremendously.
He helped me to more fully experience and understand WHAT LOVE IS.
It was an honor and a joy to have had the opportunity to live with this wonderful, loving being.
On Sunday March 19th, 2006 about 11:00 pm,
Teo had stomach’s twist symptoms. I knew something was terribly wrong.
I called my neighbour, Tiziana, and we rushed him to an emergency animal clinic
close to my home, in the middle of the night.
After 2 minutes that seemed like an eternity, we bought Teo to a room where we met a vet on duty.
But she told us that Teo was gone ...
I hugged him, kissed him and told him how much I loved him …
I felt this tremendous rip of heartbreak and pain. I screamed and cried.
I was devastated. I thought my heart would shatter into a million pieces.
I didn’t want to accept the reality.
My grief was so deep and so raw, I felt like part of myself died along with Teo.
I have never been so sick with grief. The intensity of losing Teo was indescribable.
I brought Teo back home and I laid him on my bed, our bed !
Tiziana stayed with me until 3:30 am.
At 6:24 am I could physically feel that he left his body: the soul of Teo - his being -
touched me just at the edge of my left side skin’s surface.
I realized that I could sense exactly that his spirit body was going away as if to tell me:
“NOW, I’M GOING … BUT I LOVE YOU FOREVER.”
My vet is a farm holyday’s owner and we had agree that when my furkid should passed away
I could buried him there. This place is closer to my home, about 3 minutes by car.
At 9:00 am on Monday 20th, I buried Teo with a ceremony with few friends.
I knew that his body was being returned to the earth and that his spirit was being released to Heaven.
Some days after the death of Teo, my boyfriend had a dream.
He saw Teo in my car and said to me: “Is Teo here ? How is it possible?”
and in the dream, I answered to him: “Teo is still with us”
When it is my turn to pass to the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, I will see my boy again.
LOVE CONTINUES, no matter what being you are.
It endures for eternity. I know that one day we will be reunited.
With the death of Teo, my life is changed, nothing is like before, nothing is important.
I miss him to this day, but I am so thankful for the sign he gave me.
I am so thankful that he shared his life with me, and helped open my eyes to the possibility that there is something more beyond a physical existence, although the lesson is hard one.
He was a dog,
but once you get to know them and you look deep into their eyes, year after year, you no longer see an animal: instead you begin to see the depth of any human, capable of emotion. It is given freely,
and the wealth of comfort it brings cannot be completely understood until it is taken from you.
My incredible experience with Teo has made it clear that his life continues,
that he’s somewhere and he is well. If this is true for Teo, it is true for all animals.
The years of DEVOTION, LOVE and HAPPINESS
that he had blessed me with will now be memories.
I keep a lot of pictures of him in every room of my home, in my car, in my books, in my purse, in my computer , ….
I speak with Teo’s spirit because I know that he is with me FOREVER …
