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!




My Callie by Laurie Ulery Roberts on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 10:08am.

I could not bear to say the words goodbye, so I held her tight and told her not to be scared. I whispered in her ear to remember how much I love her and not to forget it until we see each other again. I then sang "You Are My Sunshine", because that was one of her favorite things. She would curl up into the smallest spots when the sun would shine through the window. She would also lay outside in the driveway when it was 90 degrees outside enjoying the sun. I could not say goodbye.

To all of the people out there who say "it is just a dog", I am sorry you have never experienced that kind of love. You are really missing out. She was the first face I saw for the last 9 years when I walked in the door, always happy to see me no matter what kind of mood I was in, and the biggest counter surfer in town. These next couple of weeks are going to be very difficult for me and little Wheezie, but I know she would not want us to be sad.

Until we see each other again my sweet gentle giant, I love you to the moon and back.
