Relief From The Pain

I want to feel peace in my heart again, the peace I felt when walking with Sam through the woods, the peace when she came to me for anything, and the peace of knowing I have done the right thing by ending her life. I wish I could have done more for her.

I feel relief from the pain of letting Sam go only when I'm around another dog. I feel their love, their acceptance, their desire to please me, and their desire to be loved and cared for.

I will never have that feeling again. My wife refuses to consider another dog. She never had a dog that was close and precious to her as Sam was to me.

Sam's life is probably the most beautiful gift I ever received. She was with me through the loneliest, most dark part of my life, and let me cry on her shoulders quite a few times.

I don't know what to do. I grieve all the time, and there is no end in sight.

I loved her, and miss her every day.

Thanks for reading about her. She was beautiful.
