Lost my Best Friend!

Last monday the 31st of July I had to put to sleep my best friend and my little girl Georgie, she put up one hell of a battle and her body just gave out...this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. So if I've been a little short with you guys lately that's the reason. She was 2 months short of 16 years old which has been a blessing to me and my wife...lots of tears and I still hear her in the night walking around the house, I miss her laying in my lap at night waiting for her little snack that we always did. Thanks for listening!

For Georgie up in heaven, special stardust for my little girl!

Re: Lost my Best Friend!

I feel your pain Ken, I've been through the lost of a well loved pet.
Georgie has made you and your wife's life much more richer for the time
she was with you, she made your life better for sure. Its just like losing
a child. Well she is out of pain now, and in a far better place called Heaven.
Each day she was with you, and your wife, she gave the two of you,
her stardust of love. Thank God for her, and all that wonderful stardust
of love she left behind. Georgie was God's gift to you and your wife. Her
God given mission, was to make you and your wife better humans, for having
enjoyed her presents, I know because I had two furry angels, visit me called
dogs. And yes, they changed me and my wife into far better humans...

Here's my stardust of healing, from grief, and leaving only fond memories of loving
days of *** Georgie ***

Re: Lost my Best Friend!

Sorry to hear about that. I lost my favorite pooch about 4wks ago. I was devastated. I kept him at home next to me (dead) for over a day still kissing and petting him. Dug a 3' grave in the rain the next day. He made it to 12 but heartworm got him even though we tried to rid it. He was too handsome to die. The other one still has it.

Re: Lost my Best Friend!

This is sad news indeed fv and Sandog. Our animal friends live on in our hearts and memories but the pain of separation is devastating and in my experience is always there, although becomes tolerable with time.
Its so close for you at the moment I can only say try to find peace knowing they're in a better place where there is no suffering.

The gift of friendship and connection with our fellow creatures on the Earth really is beautiful and special, and I'm so grateful to have experienced it, as I know you are. Wouldnt want to have missed that for anything.

Re: Lost my Best Friend!

Sorry to hear FV & Sandog. Losing a pet is definitely in my bottom ten list. Dog are loyal to a fault, fun and just a head on the lap does so much to calm the nerves. They really are family.
