    This is so beautiful! I'm new here & also quite computer illerate, so please bear with me. I posted some of this in the introduction section.
    A week ago (Monday, 6/24/13) our 17 y.o. dachshund, Elvis Preciously, was put down at our veterinarians. He hadn't eaten in a week & had refused water for 2 days & we knew he was telling us it was time to go.
    Our 12 year old dachshund, Teeka, grieved with us. Or so we thought, until Wednesday evening, when she refused food or treats.
    Sadly, Friday, after veterinarian started exploratory surgery, it was discovered her gall bladder had twisted & was the about the size of a baseball. Along with her spleen showing pre-cancer, a massive infection was in her intestines. She didn't wake up from surgery & 4 days after putting our little guy to rest, we laid her down beside him.
    I knew it was going to happen with him, but was totally blindsided by her death. I told her I'd see her that evening, little realizing I'd said my last goodbye.
    How does a heart heal from this kind of grief? Sharron (xpch)

    Thank you for this poem. I miss my boy so much. 12 years of privilege sharing my life with such a good friend. I miss my Ben dog so much. He was my best friend and partner through the toughest times. If only I could have one more moment with him. RIP old boy

    Thank you for that. My darling boy Jerome was gone too soon but I trust that he is with me as I move forward positively, and that one day we will be re-united.

    My sincere condolences to anyone who is going through this - it's terribly sad, but the grief is a small price to pay for the love that you have shared xx

    That was beautiful. I know how hard it is to lose a pet - they're part of your family and your life. And when they're gone, it's like there's a gap that can almost never be filled.
    I recently lost my Chinese hamster, Cheeks (I will attach an image of her). The day she died was one of the saddest and worst days of my entire life. Some people may say that, "It's just a little hamster!" and to them I say that they do not value life and the company and joy a pet can bring to you.
    To anyone out there who has recently lost a pet, I am so sorry. Stay strong - it's what your pet would want you to do.

    I stood by your bed
    from the other side

    I laid in bed last night missing my friend.I laid there crying and I couldn’t sleep.
    I swore my friend was right there
    I ate my breakfast slow and quiet and I poured my tea.I reached down to pet my friend right where he should be
    I went to the shops in hopes to clear my mind.my arms were sore and reminded me of my friend.
    I went to my friends grave of which I always will take great care
    Wishing my friend was with me not down there.
    I walked to the house fumbling for my keys and even that made me wish my friend was with me
    I was so very tired and slumped in my chair remembering all the times my friend was right there
    wishing and hoping my friend never went away
    I just sat in that chair in the quiet and stillness of the evening
    I had to smile I could feel you near me
    I am sure you have so many things to show and to tell me
    when my journey ends ours will begin again

    I am writing this through blurred eyes.
    It is so heart breaking when we lose someone be it a family member or a beloved pet.
    The last couple of years have been very bad for us we have lost two family members and our two gorgeous girls Sammy and Abbie.
    I think of them all each day it does not hurt so much now but it is still difficult.

    I lost my beautiful Russian Blue Anouska last year, I'm still sad about it. I just read your beautiful words and although they made me cry, I loved reading them. Thank you.
