There is nothing that can replace the loyalty and love we get from our canine friends. I lost a Golden after 16 years and had her die n my arms looking at me with loving eyes. I couldn't have another one for 5 years for fear of the pain but have 3 now and could not live without them

Dear Laraby34,

You sound like you are so grateful for this sweet soul that motivated you and am certain she so loved you for giving her a good life. It is so so sad when we lose our furry friends.. it is. These events that take us to places we would never choose to go also give us the opportunity to connect to the oneness of all energy. Get outside and send your wellness wishes as you take in the sky.
You have my empathy.

In September 2015 my 14 year old dog collapsed when giving me a peppy welcome home. The vet said she had an enlarged heart and she was put on medication. She passed away on June 3, 2017.. We quit running together in 2015 which essentially meant I quit exercising. I made myself go out once last month and it was great (even though I cried half the time). I need to get back into a routine. I don't have her to encourage me to get out there and it is also hard because it was something we did together so I know it will be painful. Running outside is the only exercise I have been able to stick to in the past and I know I have to find a way past this. I have put on a lot of weight and I know this not my healthy self. If I hadn't run with her for those years, she probably wouldn't have lived as long and fully. I need to keep that in mind and do it for myself. I was lucky to have such an awesome fitness partner for 15 years.
