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

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep

I whined to you softly As you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, Your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. I want to re-assure you, That I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, As you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me"

You looked so very tired, And sank into a chair, I tried so hard to let you know, That I was standing there.

It's possible for me, To be so near you every day. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, Then smiled, I think you knew… In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

An when the time is right for you, To cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you, And we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, There is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out…

Then come home to be with me.

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.
