Connie, I am so sorry for your loss. The worst part of having a great dog is saying goodbye.

Yes, 2020 can gtfo.

Love of a dog is the strongest kind.

I was in your shoes a year ago December.

Know we have your back.

I believe if there is a Heaven, our dogs will greet us there.
Greg, so very sorry you lost your pupper... Buster has gotten me through every bad thing that's happened in the last 16 years (and there's been a lot), and now he's gone... I just want to cuddle him so bad...

I was in Pacifica about a month ago, thought of you, stopped off at what is actually the best donut shop in NorCal...

With any luck, the Rainbow Bridge exists and you'll meet again there.
He was there for me every day, more so than the rest of my family. I like to picture him curled up in Danni's lap, getting belly rubs, with the 2 dogs from my childhood, Beau and Claudette, sitting on either side and my horses Breezy and Jimmy behind, so he's not alone and has family with him...

I feel your pain cause it brought a tear back for my Tex.

Just know it sucks for awhile and the little things, habits, will pop up once in awhile to bring the ying/yang - smile/tear.
But time heals.
And yes... 2020 is the big suck!

I waited 4 years between being owned by Tex and my previous cattle dog, Cooper.
Don't know how long I can last until my next one.
I'm soooo sorry you lost Tex... it took me years to get over losing my cocker spaniel and bring Buster home... I can't imagine going through this again. I dunno, maybe it would be different if I were married or something, but this is the first time I've been in this house alone since I moved here 5 years ago.
It's the suck.

It gets better, Connie.....it just takes time.
My current pup is 11 years old, it seems she was a puppy only yesterday. I've gone through what you are several times now...and will again. Then the process will start over.
The book (and movie) The Art Of Racing In The Rain covered this topic eloquently.
Hang in there.

I'm worried about her too.
She's been hit with a lot, especially in the past 6 months.
I have reached out to her but will do more.

Thanks Jeff... I actually just bought that book 2 weeks ago, but Buster was already having troubles, and I couldn't bring myself to read it...

Once the all consuming grief you are no doubt experiencing begins to lift....and it will...I recommend cracking that book open. Beyond the well crafted riveting story there are lots of familiar landmarks referenced such as Sears Point and T-Hill laced throughout the pages which should provide an uplifting distraction. It is a story about racing, after all. More than just a racing tale, it provides a reassuring outlook on the obstacles life puts in front of us. After you've read it I think you will come back and tell me that it's "a racing story that has absolutely nothing to do with racing." And I will agree.
I wish you well, Miss Connie and remind you to reach out to me at any time if you need anything at all.

So sorry, Connie. Our rascal rescue Basenji, who we had for 8 years passed away last month. He had bad stroke last September. This last year has been rough helping and hoping heíd recover; but not nearly as rough as when we lost him. As you know... the hole is huge. My heart goes out to you and your sweet pup. I do know this. We did absolutely everything we could for him. We spared no expense, time or effort. Iím betting you did the same.

So sorry for the loss in your family, Connie. It's a really rough one that even I can feel when I see the soul in his eyes. There is no thing on earth like the love of a dog.

When we went through this, we found some comfort in a grieving group put on by the SF SPCA. Dunno if it's going what with Covid.

I had a beloved cat once die naturally in my arms at the end of a long struggle. I actually felt his spirit enter my chest, and two weird things happened that have changed my view of death. 1) I let out a loud, cat-like howl out of my mouth, totally involuntary. 2) I felt an immense sense of absolute bliss. I instantly knew: he was that bliss!

Someone once said, "Grief is my experience of a loss that is healing." May you grieve fully, in your own ways, until you're done.

I wish you well, Miss Connie and remind you to reach out to me at any time if you need anything at all.
When I can look at the cover without crying, I'll read it... and any story about racing that talks about my home tracks is one worth reading...
And thank you so much for the support... I'll touch bases later this week...

I'm soooo sorry... he must have felt so loved with all the effort and care... and I imagine it had to have left a huge hole in your life as well as your heart... all the routines suddenly gone... my whole morning routine was centered around Buster... this evening, I went to get the bottled water to fill his water dish...
