Grieving in Michigan

So, it's been a month since my Jazzy was hit by a truck and I mourn his loss daily. I finally got up the courage to open the box that the MSU Vet Hospital sent us. Inside was a clay imprint of Jazzy's paw. You can feel the texture of his pads. I cried my eyes out, hugging this piece of clay to my chest. The grief is still there but I'm relieved to say it's not the "heart being ripped from your chest" intensity of a couple weeks ago. There is sadness and an ache in my heart but it's manageable - still painful, but manageable. Thank you everyone who has sent me words of kindness through some of the darkest days of my life.

For the past couple of days, my husband and I have visited the Humane Society looking for a puppy to poor out all of the love we would be giving to Jasper if he were still alive and to help our 10 year old dog stop moping. It's only been two weeks and while Jasper will always hold a special place in my heart, I'm ready to try again. I just hope it's not too soon.

We found Lizzy, a 3 month old Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix. She's a spunky little thing, but when we introduced her to Tucker, our 10 year old Golden Retriever/Shepherd, she showed submission almost immediately. Tucker did his normal, "yeah, whatever" but he got up and started following her around. She saw the leash being dragged around so she grabbed hold of it and started trying to take Tucker for a walk!

My biggest fear is that I'm going to fail again to teach this new puppy what "no" means. As much as I love Jasper, he was very defiant, he would do exactly opposite what you told him to do. It was like a game to him.

Anyway, keep us in your prayers. I pick her up Monday night and then the housetraining begins.

We only had such a short time together. I never got to see you grow up. Your last day on earth, you were sniffing the spring air - you had never smelled spring before. You were doing so good with your obedience training. I hope you know how proud I was of you. You'll always be my baby boy, Jazzy. No one can ever take your place in my heart. I love you, my sweet, sassy Jaz.

Today has been one week since my Jasper puppy was hit by a truck and we had to make the horrible decision to send him on to God.

I can't stop replaying last Saturday over and over - seeing him off his leash across the street where he wasn't supposed to be. If only I hadn't called him to me.

I'm so sorry Jazzy! I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry . . .

When will the pain stop? When will I stop seeing things that remind me of his sweet little face? When will I feel normal again? I miss him so much, he was my baby boy. No matter how many tears I shed, the emptiness will not go away. I feel like a zombie walking through each day.

I'm so sorry Jazzy! I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry . . . I love you so much my baby boy! :..(
