My Best Friend


March 1994 - September 2010

My heart is aching tonight in a way that I can't describe to any of you who are not dog lovers. It's been two weeks today since I put my little best friend down and I must tell you that it's been the most difficult two weeks of my life. I'm always looking for him in the hall, around the corner or in the kitchen. It's funny when you have had a faithful companion with you for over 16.5 years...he just meant everything to me and now my home feels empty and dull. With no biological children of my own, he was basically my child, my furry child!

Hug your little furry friends tight tonight's so hard when they are taken away. ~Stacy~

Oh Stacy, I get it!!! Yes, you lost a child, the worst thing you could go thru! I know what it is like to keep thinking that you seem or hear them. Why can't dogs and cats live for like 50 -60 years like some exotic birds. When I lost my cat I thought, that's it, no more, I don't need a pet. Do you know Stacy, I was like clinically depressed, I was so lonely. Max could not be replaced, but oh my Billie the ragdoll cat sure has been a joy! You know what I am saying here.......Think about it. It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all!

OH Stacy, I am so sorry to hear about Bobo, I do know what's it's like to loose animals that are close to you and I'm hoping the pain will subside somewhat for you. Time definitely is a big help... I feel as long as we are here on earth getting another little friend and love it- is the best thing to do. Just looking at the picture you can tell he was a little darling and what is important you gave him the best life he can get. I'm already getting to emotional about it and I do feel for you so much.

Sending Big Warm Hugs*

Satacy, I could not believe when I read your blog on BOBO. Like you one week ago I too lost my best friend. He has been with me for 16 years and words can not say the pain that is in my heart. I can say that I understand the way you are feeling. I just tell myself that AJ would not like that I am so uspset. He would get so uspset when I was sad or crying so I tell myself to stay strong for him and honor him and every way I can. Once again I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you. Bonnie

Stacy, First I want say I am so sorry about your loss. Like you last week I lost my best friend. AJ had been a loveing part of our family for 16 years. I will miss him everyday. My heart is breaking thinking that I will never hold him or play ball with him. I know AJ would not want me to grieve so hard for him and because of that I try to think of all the funny times I had with him. I will honor him and his life everyday. Stay strong and I know that Bobo thanks you for loving him the way you did. Once again my heart goes out to you I know your pain. I know because we greave so much it is a testament of how much we loved our little guys. Bonnie
