From my favorite Jewish Cowboy Country Singer/Mystery Writer, Kinky Friedman:
"I believe that when you die and go to heaven, all the dogs and cats you've ever had in your life come running to meet you.
Until that day, rest in peace, dear friends."

I definitely feel your pain. Our chocolate lab died three years ago and as I was reorganizing some photo albums, I ran across hers. I teared up ---- she was like our child. We eventually did get another dog --- this time from the pound, a cockapoo. I wanted to go for the exact opposite. Instead of a 125 pounder ---- Mattie weighs 16 pounds! The first time I walked Mattie --- I was not even sure there was a dog on the leash. Lucy the lab loved water (which was convenient since we live at the beach), Mattie hates it. It definitely takes time to mourn.

Just been through this very thing last year. It's amazing how emotional it can make a person. I feel your pain Elicia. Glacier was a beautiful dog and was well loved. Take comfort in that.

thank you all so much for your kinds words. 2 weeks ago, i felt like the only person in the universe who'd ever lost a pet.. everyone sharing their stories and those who shared rememberances of my Glacier helped me through these sad times. (and a super thank you to Woofmutt who created a wonderful image of G for me)
Glacier is home now, and its a new normal around here.
my dog club is having a big show at the end of the month, that'll help a lot too.
elicia, todd and cicely.

My sympathies are with you.
Our pup is 12 and has a brain tumor, so we are living each day trying to make him happy and savoring every minute we have with the big goof.
I dread the day we have to make a painful decision, or it is made for us. All in all, it will be for the best so that he will not suffer, but will be hard because we will be the ones suffering.
Keep the faith and hang in there. Trust that he is in a good place and his memory will always stay with you.
