Goodbye Sissy...

On Wenesday the 10th, my toy poodle, Sissy died of a stroke… she was 13 years old. I'm not on as I can't bring myself to do anything other than cry and sleep. I love you Sissy. I grew up with you… and I never thought you'd go that fast…

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is. Hold onto the good memories and know that they never truly leave us!

I know they never truly leave… but I never thought it would hurt this much…

I know. And during this time we often notice their absence is greater than their presence was. Allow yourself to grieve. I am sending you big hugs!! Time will ease the pain.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You loved her and she lived a very full life, despite the circumstances.

I prematurely lost a dog (Kacy, she was 4, got hit by a car in my driveway about 13 years ago) and I literally cried until I couldn't cry anymore. I insisted that my mom take me to get a new dog the very next day, not to replace her, but to help ease the pain and take my mind off her. I honestly don't know what I would have done otherwise, Gizmo is still going strong at 13 and has been there for me through everything. I now have two dogs of my own that are young, and I know they will be there for me when I lose Gizmo. I always tell people this, but when you lose a pet it really does benefit to just be around other dogs (even if you don't adopt a new one right away), again, not to replace them, but to help dry your tears. Big hugs.

I'm glad that you are considering it! I've met a lot of people that just can't bear that pain again. I understand, but I can't imagine a life without dogs.

I've found dogs, but I'm waiting to show Grandma.

I'm so sorry about Sissy :( Hugs.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
