Yesterday I lost my beautiful Shelby to liver disease. She was a 13 1/2 year old West Highland White Terrier. I am absolutely heartbroken and can't seem to stop crying. I tried everything I could to save her and the vet had her on many different medicines but she continued to decline. I miss her so much. She always slept on the pillow beside me and even waited for me on the bathmat when I showered. I thought I would have more years with her. My other dog is really missing her too. We are trying to stay busy but I have this empty place in my heart. She was the sweetest dog and loved everyone. She raised the other Westie Spencer from the time he came into our lives. She was an awesome role model and a wonderful friend. In all her time with me she never chewed up anything and never had an accident in the house. She was very intelligient and understood what I was saying. I am just heartsick. I know in time I will probably get another puppy but right now I cannot imagine it. My house feels so empty without her. She was my constant companion and never far from where I was. This is the worst kind of pain I can imagine. She was deeply loved and forever in my heart.

Dear Friends,

It has been two days since my Skipper died, and I am still feeling very depressed. This morning I really felt the house was empty. Skipper was always in the kitchen with use when we made coffee. We would then take a tour of the yard, look at the gardens and sit on the deck. My husband feels it too. He said it is like we are going through the motions but it just does not feel right. It's amazing how you take for granted your babies being with you.

I find myself remembering her as a puppy, when she was so small she could run around one couch cushion, and when she dug a huge hole in the garden and could not wait to show me what she had done. I think of the time I hurt my back and she was with me while I was recovering, on my bed the entire time. I would always cuddle with her when I was sick and she always made me feel better.

I am worried about my other dog, Shelby. She is really feeling the loss too. She still looks for Skipper, and goes and sits where she is buried. She does not want to leave my side as she knows I am hurting. I know I need to get another companion for her soon, but right now I am not ready.

I have to leave for a business trip tomorrow morning, and frankly I am not sure I am up to it. I just want to get into bed and put the covers over my head and forget the pain. But like all of you I will have to go on and put on the brave, nothing is wrong face, even though inside I feel terrible.

I am attaching a picture of Skipper from last summer - I love this because she is smiling. She loved her yard!

I found these two poems today and wanted to share them with all of you. I hope these make all of you feel better. I loved this one:

I lost a special friend today
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.

I know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows, fields & flowers
help make them strong and whole again.

I know she's watching over me
She'll be with me when I cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
I told my friend goodbye.

This one was also beautiful:

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush of birds in flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...

Last night my West Highland Terrier, Skipper, died in her sleep. She would have been 17 on August 18th. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and she has been such a wonderful part of my life. She had failing health in the last few months and I knew this was going to happen sometime, but I am just having such a hard time with the fact she is gone. She has been with me through my ups and downs in life and had always been there as a friend and companion to me. She has lived in several different states with me, and has even traveled internationally with me several times. She was always up for any adventure or experience. She was extremely smart and loving. She never wanted to be more that a few feet away from me.

I wish I had given her even more hugs yesterday. She seemed tired last night and I was thinking I needed to see the vet again about her meds as she seemed to be slow. She had been deaf for several years and that never stopped her. I taught her sign language and we got along just fine. I have truly lost my best friend!

Right now I just feel sick. I have been crying for hours. I am not sure how I am making it through the day. 3 years ago I lost my Scottie Sasha to cancer and I never wanted to go through that pain again, but now I have it for Skipper. I feel so much sympathy for all you in losing your furry friends. Those of us who love our animals so much really feel pain when they are gone. But even though this is painful, I would not trade one minute of my time with Skipper - to have not had her would have truly been a loss. SHe was a joy to me from the day she came into my life. As a matter of fact, she picked me and it was love at first sight for almost 17 years.

I do have another three year old Westie and she has been trying to make me feel better. She is also very upset with Skipper's passing as she has been with Skipper since she was 8 weeks old and they were very close.

I am attaching a picture of Skipper - this was her 15th birthday.
