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!



It's been a year since we lost Our Precious Auggie Doggie August 15, 2000 eight hours after undergoing surgery for Gastric Torsion. We had just seen her during our lunch hour and the Vet told us that she was recovering very quickly for an older Dane and we could probably take her home the next evening. Less than an hour later they called saying she had died. Our beautiful five and a half-year-old surrogate child went from a happy, healthy, full of life big sweet Great Dane to a memory in less than fourteen hours.

Auggie, you were so much more to Momma and I than 'just a pet'. You were the friend that never got mad. You were the happy excited face that greeted us at the door when we came home after a long hard day. You could sense when we were sick or feeling low and you were always there to comfort. When our human children grew up and left home you and Kaycee filled that hole in our life. Your passing has left a hole in our hearts and life that just can't be filled. Losing you hurts worse than anything I've had to deal with in my life so far but I wouldn't trade the five and a half years you blessed our lives for anything. You will always be in our heats and we will never forget you.

Auggie's Daddy,
