When did you lose Sugarfoot?

October 29, 2008

At which stage of pet loss grief do you feel you are currently at?


Sugarfoot and Joe's Story so far

It's been a month now since I lost my Sugarfoot, thirty of the hardest days of my life, but I accept the pain, I know that it is just a reminder of how much I loved him, my buddy. Maybe somehow the pain lets him know that, too. At the end of description and story, there is only this: I will always love him, remember him, and long to see him again. I am so grateful that he died suddenly, that he did not suffer; I only wish it had been in my arms and that I had known it was coming. But I did let him know everyday that I loved him, and he sure let me know everyday how much he loved me. There isn't much more to life than that, and there's really nothing more I could ever ask from any relationship: to always love and always be loved. What else is there?


I look forward to seeing you again, to taking that walk along the Rainbow Bridge with you. I know you are happy and healthy wherever your are now. Just know that someday a familiar face will be walking toward you, smiling as its owner never has, and then that you will never be without him again.

I miss you.
