Default I like anyone who feeds me-Christian or any!

If you cook me a good meal, I'll be your friend-even Christians!

Default Need to talk to friends without debate

My best friend Dinky had to be put to sleep last week. She was a 14 y/o toy poodle who developed a brain tumor and had been sick for months. Eventually she did not recognize me and would not sit on my lap or let me pet her. It was devastating and I am still depressed. For the first time in my life meditation was of no use to me at all. June, Miss Blue, ptsum and the support of all my friends here helped get me over the worst of it by DM . . . but i am still in a deep malaise. My wife suggested I return to posting. I have no interest in dealing with my stalkers from both sides of the God issue . . . but this has always been a special thread.
God bless you all in Christ's love,
Mystic

Mystic, it is so sad about Dinky..Dogs are very important family members and our grief can be just as deep when they pass on..

I hope you did visit the Rainbow Bridge forum....

When my beloved German Shepherd had to be euthanized 10 years ago I truly lost one of my very best friends, companion, protector, and overseer of my grandkids when they were outside and out of sight..

I felt the same loss when only 6 months later someone deliberately killed our very gentle, loving PitBull who kept the snakes and other bad critters from doing any harm to the kids and the neighbor..

I have not had my own dog since, but one of my daughters keeps her dog here and I care for her, but just don't feel the same way about her..She is a Lab, the runt of the litter and I suspect if she were human she would be diagnosed with mental retardation
She is the culprit who bit a hole in our pool

Pain of loss is one of the worst pains out there, June thinks. It seems painfully endless and without form; just a void that we carry around within us for an unspecified period of time. Although most people in the midst of grief don't wish to hear it, there will be a time when your grief will subside, and Dinky will hold a place in your heart that holds happier memories. June says that speaking from experience in having lost very dear loved ones.

This thread was designed for friendship, and please know that your cyber friends are or can be as real to you as those in real life. They/we can also care just as much. We do.


Take gentle care.

I just lurked there . . . but it was a reminder that my loss isn't permanent. For some reason my grief had blocked that assurance. Thank you Miss Blue. The power of my love for Dinky reinforces my certainty that everything we love will be with us when we cross over into rebirth as Spirit.

I am so grateful for your support during this trying time, June. Intellectually, I know it will pass . . . but emotionally it doesn't seem possible right now. Here is my precious little girl:

Mystic my friend, as you know I also lost my little buddy a Maltese Terrier of about 15 1/2 years, just a little over a week ago. Today I brought him home, you see I had him cremated and his ashes were put into an urn and then put into a mahogany box that I made with all of his little mementoes. One thing that I have found that helps with the healing process, sit down and write a letter about their life and all the good things that you remember and hold dear to your heart. If you're fortunate enough to have done what I did in the past, I have taken pictures and I must have between 250 to 300 pictures of his life, from the very beginning to the present and I picked out a couple real nice ones and had them framed, doing little things like this will help.osay

I have tried your suggestion about writing but I just lose focus in sadness. I am so grateful for your support, my dear friend. I have pictures, too. In fact my screen background on the computer is a picture of her. I am not yet past the sadness at seeing her and the memories of loss that it evokes. It has still been too recent. But I will take your advice when things have abated, my friend. Thanks for being there, osay.

June apologizes for her "intellectual bent." Let me say to you, though, that our emotions are all we have, at times. They tear us apart, and June realizes that. Please know that you are not alone....Certainly not emotionally.

Post Script: Little Dinky was among the cutest little dogs in America. Remember: All dogs go to heaven....
