My Dog died :(

Thursday, January 19, 2012

My sweet dachshund "Shorty" died this past weekend. This event has really hurt me and I am trying to stay OP. My Shorty was my walking partner, he also had been with us since our son passed away. He was my comfort during that time, I feel lost. Shorty we miss you emoticon

    So very sorry to hear about your loss; it is never, ever easy to say goodbye.

    Here is a story that has given me comfort each time I have lost a furry, feathered, or finned family member:

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    You can add Shorty to the Rainbow Bridge roster at the bottom of the page here: http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm

    Take care of yourself. It's what Shorty would have wanted! emoticon

    I am so sorry for the loss of Shorty. The loss of a dog is so hard since they're always the comfort we need when no one else will do, our companions in both the joys and sorrows of life. He'll be waiting for you at the end of the rainbow bridge. emoticon

    I know that there are no words that can ease the pain of the loss of such a dear and loyal companion. There will also be a huge vacancy in your heart and your life. Take your time to grieve your loss then remember that Shorty would not want you to be miserable and hurting all the time. Shorty would be the first to tell you to get out for that walk and great each day as a new adventure. He will always be with you in your heart.

    You may feel alone in your loss right now, but we are all here to listen and offer encouragement. We may not be as cute as Shorty, but we are here. Take care, my friend...the hope the pain eases soon and the pleasant memories live on forever. Julia

    They are amazing little creatures to crawl into our lives and steal our hearts when we aren't watching. My dog has been gone a year. I never wanted him but decided it was a good experience for my son. I was so busy trying to do right by him that I couldn't help but admire what a gentle little beast he was, his devotion and his gratitude. He taught me qualities I needed to develop in my own life. I'm sorry for your loss.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have 3 dogs, 2 of them are dachshunds. I have always owned dachshunds and remember all with great fondness. I'm sure you will greatly miss Shorty. Keep walking in memory of him and think of what a great friend is was.

    I am so sorry to hear about your dog Shorty. We had to put our Lab Shane to sleep about 4 months ago. He was sick for a long time and I talked to my vet about it but it was so hard to do. I loved him so much. My husband could not take me anymore and took me to get anew puppy. We got a goldendoodle, his name is Tucker, he is great. Once again I am so sorry.
