    So very sorry for your loss.

    May your spirit run forever free in sunshine Koko.

    A Bridge Called Love
    A Bridge Called Love
    It takes us back to brighter years,
    to happier sunlit days
    and to precious moments
    that will be with us always.
    And these fond recollections
    are treasured in the heart
    to bring us always close to those
    from whom we had to part.

    There is a bridge of memories
    from earth to Heaven above...
    It keeps our dear ones near us

    It's the bridge that we call love.

    Thank you for this^ I'm having a particularly tough day today, It just comes over me and I'm in tears, there's a lovely thread over on dog chat with lots of pics and talk of having your dogs in bed with you, and it's really upset me, silly really, I'd give anything to have a cuddle with Koko right now, I miss her so much it's actually painful:(

    Its not silly, grief and loss and the pain it brings is very real, and can be hard to get through, as you say some days are even tougher then others, sometimes you think you are beginning to do OK and then sudden thoughts or something you read brings it all back and makes you feel so raw again.
    They become such a big parts of our life and give their love and companionship unconditionally, so its natural that we feel like we do when we lose them and feel that loss so much..
    At the beginning it feels like we will never get through it, but you will, just give yourself time and allow your self to grieve. I always say there is no right or wrong way to grieve, only a way that is personal and right for you.

    Thoughts are with you at this hard time. x

    So many of us have been through it on the forum, so don't think you are alone and no one will understand, I'm sure when you are having a bad day if you want to post and talk about it you will get lots of support.

    It may not be something you are interested in, but some people do find it helpful, The blue cross animal charity offer a free pet loss bereavement service you can phone them and talk to someone. There is also various literature you can get from the website too to help with pet loss. As said its not for everyone, but if you feel it may help the links below.

    SDH Thank you again, the forum has been a godsend, I've had a lot of support, the members are very understanding, as you say, most have been through the trauma of losing a pet, so they know how I feel, I don't really have anyone at home that I can talk to that understands, so the forum is the place I usually come to, I mostly lurk, looking at the pics of people's dogs and hearing about what they have been getting up to, for the most part, I enjoy doing, but sometimes, like today, something will trigger my emotions and my world comes crashing down:(
    Again, thank you for caring, and thank you for the link, I really appreciate it. x
