I cannot begin to say what a huge blessing it was to find this site in dealing with the utter despair and guilt of losing my best friend and companion of 11+ years to cancer. There have been some really dark days, but the heartfelt responses to my pain and grief along with the common stories of loss people shared and getting through that loss are helping more than I could ever put to words. Thank you!

I also wanted to share a couple of resources that have also helped me in hopes they may help others:

An article on Dog Chat Forum - http://www.dogchatforum.com/sadness-grief-when-dog-dies.htm

The Argus Institute at CSU - http://www.argusinstitute.colostate.edu/grief.htm

and a very honest and touching book by Jon Katz - "Going Home"

To those of you that commented on my loss of Jack, thank you from the bottom of my heart. To anyone freshly experiencing that pain - my heart and love go out to you.
