Saw this on my BWFB page
It's very true. We open ourselves up to the heartache we can be almost sure is going to be the final act.
Absolutely right. This is always what I think of when, after losing a pet, I tell myself I can't cope with the grief of going through it ever again, then I compare it to the years of love, laughter and joy and another one comes into my life.
That's from her book Bones Would Rain from the Sky. Highly recommend
I love that quote, it is so true.
On another note I actually saw a dog funeral on the internet the other day! With open casket and everything. It was way too much for me. I mean I know we love our dogs like our family, but they aren't people and I think the least we can do for them is treat them as dogs.
I couldn’t sacrifice the heartbreak for the beautiful memories and wonderful years they give me.
Each one has a special place in my heart and my heart grows with each loss to make room for another.
My dear Dad had a Springer through his teens and early twenties. Dad’s constant companion at work and at home. His loss broke Dad’s heart. I was never allowed pets (and goodness knows I tried). His pic was in dad’s wallet til he died. I often wish Dad could have seen beyond the grief and enjoyed more wonderful companions.
I remember feeling sad when I saw John Noakes crying on a television interview at the death of his beloved Shep. Also James Stewart talking about the loss of his dog in an interview with Micheal Parkinson. I still miss my Suzie every day, her sweet nature and gentle eyes. I feel privileged to have owned her.
It broke my heart when lily passed and I do worry about losing my boys. I can’t imagine my life without dogs though my life would seem so empty.
The lovely thing about this forum is we ALL know exactly how each other feels about our beloved dogs (& cats & anything else probably).
I love that quote. Must read her book.
It broke our hearts when we lost our much loved Amber and later Dillon, but Dillon was so special the way he looked after me after I had my Strokes fetching OH when he thought I needed help or was unwell, I never knew how much a dog could be turned into how I was feeling, he seemed to know I needed help before I knew myself.
They both have left large holes in our hearts and at our age and health we just live with the pain not been able to have another little friend to help us though the pain.
My world fell apart when I had to say good bye to my Toby, the pain was unbearable & I miss him so much still. But he bought me so much happiness, we had so many laughs together & he changed my life. My heart breaks for everyone that loses a much loved pet, a woman at my IGP club lost her dog to DCM yesterday & I was devastated for her. He was like my Archer; lived life to the full, he loved his training, was such a happy boy ..... so young & so unexpected
But as painful as it is I can't imagine not having dogs now.
