It sounds like several people could use this link. It is a poem to help deal with pet loss. The Ver gave this to me after having to put Keech, my previous dog, down due to cancer & being unable to walk, after our dealing with her diabetes for over 7 years.

It's been 5 ears since we lost our cat (also named Bear because of the way he walked).

We've not adopted, or been adopted, by another pet since then. Part of it has to do with just not wanting to have another member of the family to be responsible for, or grieve for - the second part is that we have retired and are making many more trips than we had made previously.

While dogs seem to really enjoy playing with other dogs at our local pet hotel, cats don't seem to enjoy it as much. Maybe it's because they take on characteristics of Dad - who really doesn't like crowds and often has to leave when there are large groups.

Even after five years, seeing a big black cat will cause a zing and a tear or two. Maybe you can get over the loss of a pet, but I remember the loss of every single dog and cat I've ever had the pleasure of being friends with.

Pets are very much a member of the family, so allow yourself permission and time to grieve. It's not silly; the heartache is very real.
Use exercise and gardening to help you heal.

Blessings,
Heidi

even tho i raise them i dont lose them well... but i love my job in so many ways... in so many special ways it touches my heart as it touches others... and the ones who are my own are my children... quite spoiled i'm afraid... and i love them all even if some are nearer to my heart than others... they are all dear... my heart goes out to you... for i have many healers to quiet my soul this day... and there are others on the horizen... and the sherbert is a thing of the past... i realize i have changed... like my songs... i like fruit now so much better... so much cleaner and truer... closer to heaven i suspect... and it is a message of faith that picks me up today and carries me forward... cause it held me strong thru the night with my dog... and it will hold me strong tomorrow too... and yes i shed a tear... but i also know a new life arrived for another special boy or girl or human with a place in there heart for a canine friend.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I lost Bear about a month ago to lung cancer. I understand your pain all too well.
