HELLO PET LOVERS
I AM HURTING TO WHERE IT'S ALMOST UNBEARABLE. I NEED SOME SUPPORT ON HOW TO DEAL WITH MY LOSS.

I GREW UP WITH NO DESIRE TO HAVE A PET OF ANY KIND, HOWEVER, TWO YEARS AGO, A CO-WORKER OFFERED ME THE MOST ADORABLE WESTIE (PUPPY) THAT I HAD EVER SEEN. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, I FELL COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH THIS DOG (NAMED ZOE), I LOVED HER MORE THAN ANYONE IN MY LIFE ...SHE WAS MY SHADOW. SHE SLEPT WITH ME, WOKE UP WITH ME, WE PLAYED TOGETHER IN THE MORNINGS IN BETWEEN ME TRYING TO GET MYSELF READY FOR WORK, I LIVE CLOSE TO WORK, I'D COME HOME AND PLAY AND WE'D HAVE LUNCH TOGETHER ...I CAME HOME TO HER AFTER WORK SEEING HER JUMPING UP N' DOWN AT MY FRONT DOOR...ONCE I GOT IN...SHE JUMPED UP AND DOWN ON MY LEG UNTIL I PICKED HER UP (IN WHICH I DID ALMOST IMMEDIATELY), GAVE HER KISSES, RUBBING HER BACK AS SHE LICKED MY FACE. WE BOTH FELT THE LOVE AND AFFECTION FOR EACH OTHER ALL DAY EVERY DAY. AFTER DINNER, SHE GAVE ME "THE LOOK" THAT IT WAS TIME FOR OUR EVENING WALK. AFTER OUR WALK WE WOULD COME HOME AND RELAX AND PLAY UNTIL IT WAS TIME TO GO TO BED TO WAKE UP TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. I NEED TO MENTION, I HAVE A LOVING HUSBAND AND TWO KIDS, THAT ADORED ZOE AS WELL, BUT NOTHING LIKE I DID. I WAS GUILTY OF GIVING ZOE MORE AFFECTION THAN TO THEM, BUT THEY UNDERSTOOD, THEY KNEW I WAS ATE UP WITH HER.

WELL, ON LAST THURSDAY (JUNE 12TH) OF ALL DAYS ...(MY BIRTHDAY)...ZOE AND I WERE HEADED INTO THE HOUSE AFTER OUR WALK, ( I ALWAYS UNCLIP HER LEASH ONCE WE'RE ON THE PORCH) ... MY NEIGHBOR HOLLORED AT ME THAT SHE NEEDED TO TALK. ZOE AND I WALKED OVER TO HER PORCH...ZOE ALWAYS WOULD STAY IN OUR YARD AND SHE WOULD FOLLOW ME IF I WALKED OVER TO MY NEIGHBOR ...HOWEVER, ZOE SPOTTED A SMALL RABBIT HOPPING IN THE NEXT YARD AND MADE A MAD DASH TO CATCH IT, RUNNING INTO THE STREET AND SHE GOT RUN OVER, SHE WAS KILLED INSTANTLY. I RAN OUT TO THE STREET, PICKED HER UP, LOOKING INTO HER FACE, SAYING HER NAME OVER AND OVER AND KISSING HER, PLEASE DON'T GO...BUT SHE WAS GONE. FROM THAT MOMENT, I CAN'T SLEEP, EAT, OR BARELY FUNCTION TO GO ON WITH MY NORMAL DAILY ROUTINE. MY FAMILY THINKS I SHOULD BE OVER THE DEVASTATION BUT THE ACCIDENT RUNS THROUGH MY MIND A HUNDRED TIMES A DAY. I HAVE ACCEPTED SHES PASSED, WE BURIED HER IN THE BACK YARD, I HAVE HER A BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL STONE AND FLOWERS WITH HER PICTURE. I LOOK OUT MY WINDOWS OF MY HOUSE AND SEE HER BURIAL SPOT AND IT JUST KILLS ME. SHE WAS SO SPECIAL IN MY LIFE AND I KNOW THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER ZOE. I MISS HER SOOOOO MUCH, I AM CONTINUOUSLY LOOKING FOR HER TO COME AROUND THE CORNER OF ANY ROOM. PULLING UP IN MY DRIVEWAY FROM WORK IS THE ABSOLUTE HARDEST THING NOT SEEING HER ADORABLE LITTLE FACE AT THE DOOR.

I FOUND THIS WEBSITE TO POSSIBLY GET SOME SUPPORT, I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY.
THANKS IN ADVANCE

So very sorry to hear of your Zoe's unfortunate accident. I went throught this 12 days ago with my Sissycat. She was hit by a car also. My pain is so great as i'm sure yours is too. My family also thinks I should be over it. It is just gonna take some time and each person handles it differently. I am fine one day and not the next. I could not eat or sleep for the 1st week. I went to work as a zombie. I am not saying I love Sissy any less, but now when I look at her pictures (which a have everywhere) I can sometimes smile and remember the wonderful 2 years we had together. We are here for you.
Have you read the Rainbow Bridge? You should.

Take care and the pain will get easier with time.

Deanna,

Zoe was a beautiful baby and I am so sorry you lost her. I know how it feels to relive that last moment over and over...no matter what takes them from us we all go through that. I wish I could tell you how to make that stop... all I can tell you is that eventually it will stop on it's own. Working through these things takes it's own time... you can't rush it. It has been nearly 2 years since I lost my Mack to cancer, and we lost Sadie last October. I still sometimes look for them in their usual places. I sometimes still find myself thinking I could have and should have done something different.

One step at a time, and largely with the help of this website, I have come to the place where my memories make me smile,instead of weep. I smile when I come across their little collars and leashes and things. I'm thankful for the dent Sadie made in the front of my washing machine, and the big scratch Mack made in the the console of my truck.
A terrible accident cut sweet Zoe's life too short...but the end of life is not the end of love. It's hard to learn to live with that love when the beloved is beyond your reach, but you will.

Meanwhile, maybe we can give you some comfort,
and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers,
Dayna

Your loss of Zoe is so recent and I don't think the missing of one so loved ever passes Deanna. sad.gif But with time and support from others it can help ease the pain. Coming here to LS to express our pain and loss definately helps and leads us to inspiration of hope to learn to continue living in a happy and healthy way. The people here help me beyond what my words can even express. My heart goes out to you.

There were many things I did to help myself get started taking those first steps toward healing. My first writings of Goliath brought many thoughts from others that were genuine because they also felt the crippling effects that come after having lost their own furloves. You can read for yourself in the Death & Dying section about many who have begun their journey of healing one step at a time down a very long and weary road. Many have found their way to a happier and healthier life that isn't so empty anymore.

I was left completely lost when my Goliath passed away so suddenly. Each time I thought of bringing a new puppy into our home and hearts, I felt guilty for even thinking it. I felt as though I was betraying Goliath. After I realized Goliath left me with far more than grief when the angels took him to Heaven, I knew in my heart he would want me to continue sharing all the love I have in my heart for a new baby sister or baby brother.

On April 26th of this year we were blessed in finding our way to Browser. Though Browser cannot ever replace Goliath, and I wouldn't want him to, he too quickly filled our home and hearts with a new and special kind of love. Each has his own little unique personality. Goliath knew how to bring smiles and laughter and so does Browser. Having that laughter and energy back sure stirred things up around here. A new puppy sure keeps me on the go.

Zoe will be with you for the rest of your life. She is alive and well within you. Reach inside and let the sun shine in and bask in the beautiful memories you and she made together.

May you find comfort and healing and discover the treasures Zoe left you. wub.gif

Thank you Sissycat,
Your reply means the world to me, to know that the extreme sadness I feel is normal at that it will get easier, with time. Your comments of how you felt the first few days is the exact way I am feeling now ...not being able to sleep, eat, or function at work. I am having a hard time dealing with her absence, she had so much more love to give.
Again, thanks, you just don't know how much you're helping me.

Goliath ~
I am lost for words to express the appreciation of your reply to my void of my baby girl Zoe, (as well as the others). I feel comfort already. I have read many comments and replies regarding losses that others are dealing with at the same time I am. I have read the progress ones are making with accepting the loss and the pain easing with time. Yes, you're right, there have been friends and family members suggesting to me to get "another" dog ...but I have the same thoughts that "I could never do that to Zoe". However, Zoe has taught and showed me an enormous amount of unconditional love and happiness that I had never experienced in my life before I got her. She has showed and given me a gift, I feel that I need, I
miss it terribly. She has left some wonderful memories I will hold in my heart forever.
I can't thank you enough for your support.

Dear myhrtisbrkn
I can't thank you enough for your reply. You have brought sincere comfort to me with the explanation of what I am feeling is a part of the healing process and things will get better with time. For example, the thoughts of "the accident" running through my head time after time is normal and there's nothing I can do to stop it ... it will happen on it's own. I do understand I can't rush the pain away. Thoughts go through my mind, "will I ever be happy again"? The sadness of losing Zoe has been so unbearable, she mean't so much to me.
Thanks for giving me hope. Your wording of ...the end of life is not the end of love, gave me goosebumps.
I truly appreciate your support Dayna
Thanks
Deanna

Deanna,


I always shed a tear when I see we have a new member, because I know that means some little angel is gone, and some broken heart has lost a love that is irreplaceable. On the other hand I know how desperately I needed some support when I found this website. And it has helped me more than I can say to be able to pay back some of the comfort that was given me when I came here.


Keep us posted,
Dayna

For one to say "get another dog" is like saying get another Mother or get another child. It isn't that simple. Our ties with these furkids are much closer in the kind of bond we make with them. We are their everything just as they are for us. Our worlds revolve around them as we nuture each other. wub.gif

For some bringing another pet into their lives quickly brings them comfort................That wasn't the case for me. I felt it was unfair for me to bring a new addition in unless I was doing so for the right reasons. The time had to be right and I knew I had alot of healing that needed to take place first. You will know when your time comes. Some people tried to tell me also to "get another dog." They just didn't understand there was so much more involved in processing Goliath's death. My Goliath was what I loved more than any other living creature on this earth and a part of me died too that needed time to become reawakened. Once I could feel alive again was when I began to think about adopting another additon to our family. I'm sure Goliath had some involvement in picking such a wonderful baby brother named Browser for me to have and to hold. I will love Goliath til the day after forever. He was the wisest teacher I ever had touch my life in such a special and everlasting way.

Zoe's love will live on in you and all around you. It will take alot of time, emotional rides, and patience for you to become able to come to terms of acceptance of Zoe's death. Your love with her lives on though her body has persished. She left you a treasure chest full of happy memories for you to cherish for the rest of your natural life til the day you and she reunite once again. The gift Zoe gave you remains yours now and for always. biggrin.gif

I send you hugs of comfort Deanna as you struggle to find your way through your long journey of healing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult and sad time of your life.

Much love,
Beth

Morning Dana and Beth:
It is good to read your additional comments and supportive thoughts on how I feel with my precious Zoe being gone. This is another painful morning without her, she always got up with me and was so playful in the mornings during my routine of getting ready for work. My heart still hearts so bad, thanks for your understanding in the way I feel. Your comfort and support truly means the world to me. I don't think I could have got out of bed this morning if I hadn't heard from you pet lovers that have experienced this last night, you have given me hope and I am (very) slowly learning to grasp on to and think of my loving and fun memories of Zoe and I together rather than being consumed with her death. I will forever hold her in my heart and I know she'll give the strength to carry on and be happy again.
Again, thank you

Zoe, "mama's lil' punkin pie"
I love and miss you sooooo much little girl.
Mama

Hi Deanna,

Beth is so right ( she usually is ), you can't just replace a beloved dog, like you would a worn out dishwasher. I know the people suggesting that are trying to help you,but adopting another pet is a very complicated, and emotional decision. Now you know how much joy having a furkid can bring you...and you also know
how much it hurts to lose them. Most of us have to weight those things in the balance as part of the healing process.

Wishing you comfort and peace,
Dayna

Hi Deanna, I hope you are doing OK. Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you. I read your first post without signing in so the attached picture didn't show up. Just now I signed in and so the picture of Zoe popped up. I already was thinking about you but that little face ... oh I'm just so sorry about your loss.


I hope you are hanging in there.

It's been a month now and I still hurt like it happened yesterday. Zoe was so loving and (now that you can see her picture), and so adorable too. She was my everything.
Again, thanks Molly
