Coping with pet loss || Grief and pet loss || Pet loss and grieving

A loved one is never truly gone until they are forgotten, live in the hearts of those left behind is to live forever!




Lucy, I remember when Holly first got beaten, so skinny and left to die when you couldn't give more puppies The calouses on your elbows, the sadness in your eyes and all the health problems you had, and had overcome. Never knowing what a bed or a kind touch was until Holly (Mom) came along. You became longer broken.You loved everyone and were so noble and gentle. Lucy loved everyone big and small...all the fosters and two lil girls that lived there. Lucy played and became more sure of herself, but she had cardiomyopathy and her heart just wouldn't work. 

She left around 7:00 pm last night. They had tried for hours to save her and her blood pressure was 40/60 and she was ice cold even with heaters on her. They were even heating the IV's...but her heart just wasn't pumping the fluids. 

In this for 5 months of heaven with my mom Holly and all my foster brothers and sisters. Mom, thank you for giving me love and a second chance at life and knowing that I meant something. Rescue is hard, but it is so rewarding. Thank you for loving me for me. Lucy, may you run and play with all the DANES at the bridge.

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you...
I loved you so -----
'twas Heaven here with you.
