Canine Soulmates
by: Coral (Warwickshire, UK)

I lost my beloved Springer Spaniel Ralph 5th November 2011 at age 14. I had to make the heart breaking decision to end his life and even though I know I did the right thing I am devastated. It was he and I together for almost 13 years, we rescued each other. He too used to lay on the bath mat and wait for me to come out of the shower or bath. I miss everything about him and still cry most days just over a year on. It is getting easier though and I can now talk about him and smile over his memories without breaking down every time. I still don't think I will ever truly get over losing him though. He was my best friend, my family, my son. He showed my love like I had never known it before. He taught me patience and how to live life in the moment. That's how I try to live my life now, in his honour. I was with him at the end, lying next to him, kissing him, stroking him and telling him how much I love him. I can only hope that one day, after that final goodbye, there will be another hello. It's what's we all wish for.
So sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and everyone on this site.

Dear Marie, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Isis. I know the deep pain you feel and I wish there were words I could say to ease your pain but there isn't and I'm sorry for that. All I can say is that when my Rufus died 4 months 8 days ago my whole world crumbled and you're right the love between you and your fur baby is the strongest love yet the deepest pain. I know it was for me, but I also know if I would of known just how bad it was going to hurt, it wouldn't of stopped me from loving Rufus as much as I do. I don't know were I'm going with this, but when you do get her ashes back it will make you feel a lot better I can promise you that. I'm not going to say all the stuff people say that to me is crap, all I'm going to say is cry when you need to, laugh when you can and just know she is with you wherever you go and is right beside you in every thing you do. May God Bless you and keep you strong, always Lisa

Hi I know exactly what you are going through I said goodbye to my 10 year old Boxer dog Tigger 14 weeks ago and are still broken hearted I was in love with my dog he was more than a dog to me he was my best friend companian faithful friend.

When I was sad Tigger knew and was a comfort and we knew what each other wanted Tigger used to lie on the back of my legs on the sofa, he used to jump on our bed in the morning and lie inbetween us until it was time to get up.

We would play fight he was so gentle especially to the children and grandchildren.

I miss him so much I ache I cry most days and wish him back but I know one day we will be together again I will run to him and Tigger will run to me. So I feel your pain I'm sure it will ease, take care, Rose.

I hope you do get some relief. I had Morgan for 17+ years. I clutched the little box of ashes and have cried my eyes out. Nothing in the world can compare to the true loyalty and companionship of a pet. They love you no matter what kind of day your having, how you look or how much money you make. My major was psychology but, I have an appraisal business. I can count on 2 hands the times she was not with me in the last 17+ years. I know it takes time and the hurt is terrible. It will get easier but typically the pain of the loss will always be there. She made an imprint in your heart and soul.
