My advice would have to be after some time has passed do not be afraid to love again-the best gift that I gave to myself, my Bella and Sadie was to bring Tank and Noe into my life. By loving again it seems to me that you show how very much your lost love meant to you and you honor that by doing it again. Tank and Noe will never, ever replace Bella, or Sadie but they have their own places in my life and heart and it is because of what Bella and Sadie taught me that I can do it yet again.

I am great-busy and tired as all get out but good. Raising these three boys is interesting to say the least, but they are a joy (most of the time). Tank just had another surgery on his right hock-but has recovered with just a bit of a limp. He is just a messy orthopedic problem-but what a lover he is!!! Noe is -well Noe is a yellow lab-she believes herself to be THE NOE-and sleeps wrpapped around dads head at night just like she did when she weighed 10 pounds.
I need to be back here tho-I miss my Bella, and Sadie every day but the greatest gift they gave me is the knowledge that I needed to do it again!! I am actually looking at another rottie pup if you can imagine that! Just looking tho
Love, hugs and kisses to you.

P.S. Yep will be at the Golden Gate show with bells on!

Believe.... would be the word. Believe that your best friend has gone to a place where there is no pain or sorrow, and believe that he or she knows how much they were loved and how much they are missed, and although you may not be able to touch or see them, they are still a part of your past and always will be...... not forgotten for a moment.

Wow, that's a tough one. My first thought is, don't let the guilt eat you up. I know guilt was a large part of it with me, with so many of us, that tried, but couldn't save our babies. So my words are, guilt is a normal part of the grieving process. Don't let it eat you up, know that you did all you could humanly do to save your little one, to love them, to keep them safe and well. And know that your babies love you for it, and always will.

Yo, mom to Blossom, Sassy, Katrina, Casey, and always in my heart, my angel ^Princess^
