It's eight months today sweet Delilah and I feel like my heart is broken. I cannot mention your name without tears coming to my eyes and getting a lump in my throat. I don't know when it is ever going to get better. I think of you every single day and miss your beautiful face. Please help me wherever you are in doggie heaven to try and cope with my feelings.

Papa and sister miss you just as much as I do. Remember we will always love you. Hugs and Kisses my precious angel. Love you, Mama

Thank you Lin for your message of support from Delilah, I am sure she knows what a really nice, caring person you are to her and us. Whisper was very lucky to have had you for a mom. Warmest regards to you and yours. Stella

Hi Jennifer, thank you for your words of encouragement. I cannot think about Delilah without crying. I look at her pictures every day, and I have many of them throughout the house, and if my thoughts just wander a bit, I start to cry. I cannot forgive myself for not being with her at the end to hold her and tell her I loved her with all my heart.
Its my cross to bear. She was the heart of this house and its simply not the same without her. I try my best to get through each and every day, but it is still difficult, hopefully as time goes by it will get better, I can only pray it does.

My sincere regrets on the loss of your beautiful Trixie, you can fully understand what it is like to lose someone you love so much. Best regards, Stella

Hi Jennifer; your right people are insensitive, but you have to know who you can talk to about such things. First of all if your not talking to a pet owner then that is one strke against you, they simply do not understand. Delilah was the heart of the house, she was so beautiful, so loving, compassionate, always knew when someone was down, gave extra kisses and had a wonderfuly kind nature.

We have since gotten another Pom, Gypsy is her name, she is adorable and is only 7 months old BUT, she is not my Delilah. She has a completely different personality, always pushes away when you want to cuddle with her.....it makes me sad. I miss Delilah because she brought not only me but my family such comfort and peacefulness. When anyone picked her up Delilah was ready to cuddle and lay quietly with you while you petted her. She was always nuzzling and climbing on top of you to try and reach you to give kisses.

You take your time in grieving the loss of Trixie and don't let anyone tell you you should be over it, this is a member of your family......I felt about Delilah as I feel about my daughter, unconditional love. Delilah was with us ten years and I can honestly say that during those ten years she was nothing but a complete joy and that is why our grief is so strong, its like a light has gone out in our lives.

Your right, wait before you get another dog, Trixie can never be replaced, but when the time is right you will know it and then perhaps you can look into getting another furbaby not as a replacement but as an addition to your family. Warnest regards, Stella

Hi Lin, you are soooo right, I too was ready to give Gypsy back to the breeder I had never experienced a pup that was so rambunctious. She is as cute as a button but I cannot keep up with her but more importantly, when I go to hug her and bring her close she pulls away as if to say, "I am having none of that". So very different with my Delilah, she would let you hold her as if she were a baby and when you scratched her tummy she was in heaven.

I know it is not fair to Gypsy to compare her to Delilah, and as you said, perhaps Delilah sent Gypsy to shake us up a bit, if that was her intent, then she succeeded.
I have to remember too that Gypsy is still a pup, but when we got Delilah at six months old, I had never gone through this. Also, Gypsy was born the day we put Delilah to rest which was on Dec 10th, I think there is a message there, why her and why that day of all days. I am also finding it difficult when the 9th of each month rolls around, its the day of her passing and it cannot go by unnoticed.

We all love Gypsy, she is as I said as cute as can be, but I wish she were more loving. I see each day she gets a little better, when I pick her up she will give me kisses first thing, and then she is off and running. I have had many fur babies in my lifetime but Delilah was in a class by herself as I am sure your Whisper was.

I am glad I found this website, I have found many wonderful people who truly understand what it is to lose someone you love, and you are one of those special people. I really appreciate your kind support and look forward to hearing from you again soon. My very best regards to you and yours. Stella

DH and I have talked about getting another dog, but we are so scared (or maybe it's just me) that we'll get a dog completely unlike Trixie.
