The time passed with much difficulty and not one day went by without tears.
Pain doesn't go away, but now his silly antics can be discussed with more
laughter than sorrow.
Sometimes I swear I can hear his contented sigh in the hallway:)
The days that felt like a bad dream are gone.
I loved him with all my heart and at first I swore I'd never do that again,
No more dogs, the hurt is too immense.
Then I read this quote:
"Unlike some people who have experienced the loss of an animal, I did not
believe, even for a moment, that I would never get another. I did know full well that there were just too many animals out there in need of homes for me to take what I have always regarded
as the self-indulgent road of saying the heartbreak of the loss of an animal was
too much ever to want to go through with it again.
To me, such an admission brought up the far more powerful
admission that all the wonderful times you had with
your animal were not worth the unhappiness at the end."
Then I thought, well maybe in a few years, like four or five, maybe then I'll get another.
Six weeks ago our neighbor told me his dog had a litter of 10 puppies that he wasn't sure
he'd be able to find homes for, he only wanted to keep the darker colored ones
since they look like the mother.
I told him I'd think it over.
Ha! I didn't stand a chance!
I made the decision as soon as I held him.
SO.... now I'd like to introduce
He still drinks from a bottle..
And he's an awesome lump with amazing puppy breath!
My heart is full & I'm grateful for another chance
to love and be loved by another furry friend.
I miss my big pup, I always will.
He'll never be forgotten.
The following song reminds me of him.
like a party somebody threw me You taste like birthday You look like New
Years You’re like a big parade through town You leave such a mess but
you’re so fun
Tell all the neighbors to start knocking down walls To
grab their guitars and run out to the hall And we’re coming out right along
to sing them my new song
For every place there is a bus That’ll take
you where you must Start counting all your money and friends before you come
For every road we can retrace For every memory we can’t
face For every name that’s been erased Let’s have another round May I
propose a little toast? For all the ones who hurt the most For all the
friends that we have lost
Let’s give them one more round of
applause But you’re like a party somebody threw me You taste like
birthday You look like New Year You’re like a big parade through town
That leaves such a mess but you’re so fun
