    Happy Birthday Koko! Today should have been your 12th birthday, not a day goes by that I don't miss you. If love could bring you back, you'd be with me now.:( love and miss you always xxx

    It is really hard on special days like birthdays when our furbabies are no longer with us. Your lovely Koko will know how much you loved her xx

    Thanks for your kind words, I am still really struggling to be honest, like you said its hard on special days, I know she knew how much I loved her, she was the most faithful friend I ever had and she was like my shadow. I miss her so much. Thanks again. xxx

    In the darkness i turned to go
    my last days done ill miss you so
    no time even to say goodbye
    or to lick the tears spilling from your eyes
    thats when i heard you call my name
    I knew right then i must turn back to ease your pain
    since ive got no voice with which to speak
    Its whispers in your dreams ill make
    ease your heart and rest your mind
    my time with you was the best of kind
    i couldnt have asked for a better friend
    weve shared our journey to the very end
    theres one final thing you need to know
    ill whisper in your ear before i go
    im leaving first to find the way
    so i can lead you back here on your last day

    I know what you mean, when I read that someone has lost their treasured pet, their heartache jumps of the page and hits me, I feel their pain and I relive losing Koko all over again.:( I havent been on the forum much since she went, I usually end up getting upset. I'm sorry to hear you are still struggling too with losing your boy, it's been over a year, as you say, but we cant put time limits on our grief, we feel what we feel. Bless you. xxx

    You are so right.I find most days fairly easy but then there are just some days that hit me like a sledgehammer between the eyes.I have never been affected like this with any other dog or animal but Oliver has really affected all aspects of me.Dont get me wrong I loved all my animals and have been sad when they were gone but this is something else.It could be just everything going on in my life right now too.Trying to buy a new house and with our new land lord we cant have a rott and that is the only dog we are interested in.So we are going through a lot right now and even though i miss and love Oliver so much i long for the companionship and the love of another dog.It is so hard to explain and yet so stressful all at the same time.

    I know exactly what you mean, Koko was the light of my life and I have had some very dark days since she died, when she went she took a huge piece of me with her leaving a massive hole, my health has deteriorated now to the point where I cant walk more than a few feet without needing to lie down and get my breathe back so, for me to have another dog is out of the question,I couldn't give it the life it deserves, not that I feel that I ever could have another at the moment anyway, it would be like being unfaithful to her, if you know what I mean?

    I really hope that soon lady luck smiles down on you and your situation becomes that you can give another Rottie a home, whenever this happens, one thing is obvious, he/she will be a very very lucky Rottie to end up with such loving Dad and Mum as you and your wife are, and I'm sure Oliver will approve. All the best xxx

    I was thinking of you last week when it was the first anniversary of my girl as I remember they went to Rainbow Bridge close together. It certainly doesn't seem a year. I always think the first anniversary is the worst. Sweet dreams Koko.

    Yes they did go to the bridge close together by a few days, I can remember telling Koko to look out for your little Smartie when she got there, sounds silly I know, I didn't want them to be on their own.
    I can't believe this year has gone so fast, yet it feels like forever since she was here, if you know what I mean. Even though I have another dog, Luna, a beautiful husky who I absolutely adore, not a single day goes by that I don't miss Koko, she was my shadow for 11yrs, bless her, I think I'll always miss her, she was a very special girl. xx

    when they are set free

    free in the spirit and free as the wind able to run where ever their hearts wish
    They will spend much time with us looking over us and watching us
    wishing they could make things better or easier but not knowing why we cant see
    they will run through the long grass on the eternal warm summer days
    always wanting and longing to see their long lost friends
    day after day doing what they wish eating what they wish drinking what they wish
    chasing the rabbits and squirrels and birds to pass the time
    always keeping an eye on who they loved in their previous life
    no longer having any pain or feeling old and grey
    movement comes easy just like a pup
    There is always a longing and a sadness in their heart
    they want their loved ones to come see
    they wish to show us that beautiful place where they run so wild and free
    no longer in any of this worldly dangers
    their only want is to feel that hand upon their head
    to lick the face of their loved one just like they did
    for us to see them and call their name
    that we cant see them is just a shame
    they will be happy to know we continue to love
    their loyalty is to make us happy
    i for one will get pummeled when that day comes about
    by many big boys and girls all wanting the same thing
    i am still somewhat young and many more i will add
    many many heart scars i will have
    they will be set free one by one and meet them again i will
    on the day when the lord sets me free
    when my worldly journey is done i am sure i will meet all of them again
    until then they will continue with the above

    I have only just seen this RL, it's a beautiful poem, is it one of your own? I like it, it's very comforting, I really hope with all my heart that everything is as the poem says and our baby's are happy and healthy and just waiting for us to join them one day.❤️❣❤️

    I have a lot of poems in the poetry section just as a clearing of my head kind of thing.
