Ohhhh, the Sparky :( Now things will REALLY be heating up over that Rainbow Bridge! My kitties will be looking for him!!! As for me, I'm sad for YOUR loss.. honestly, no words.. as I can't even imagine!
I know replacing a pet after a death is repulsive to some but I read something that reminded me of when my cat of 20 years, Aja, died. It said that learning to love another animal is not an insult to the pet you loved, it is homage to your deep devotion
katweezel asked me to pass this to you: By katweezel on Oct 6, 2014 at 3:51 PM Hi NC. Perhaps you might like to pass this on to Sir Nottaguy... I went through similar pet pain as you. When I focus on that past, I still feel it. I came to know a man aged 78 a while back who told me he had a kelpie just like mine, same red colour. He told me more about how much he loved that dog, speaking as if she had died yesterday. I asked him when did she pass? He said, it was 44 years ago, last week... My healing was best served when I bought another puppy. It wasn't Scooby, but it quickly filled the painful void. Hope this helps. Regards K
So sorry for your loss. our critters are such a huge part of our familys it's hard to lose them. hang in there and know that he was loved and loved you back and will be waiting and playing while he waits. He's probably a little guardian angel watching over you all til you meet again. ***hugs*** kris
I know that cool spot against your legs will bother you a while. The warmth that was Sparky will be missed. I have seven dogs, but only two sleep with me. GiGi, the rat terrier, has to be beside me so that she can touch me. Buddy Lee, a cocker spaniel, is content to sleep at the foot of the bed. Rescue dogs are the best, in my opinion. Linda (wally01)
