I lost my little girl yorkie on Friday. I had her for 14 1/2 years. I am so distraught I can't stop crying. I miss her so much. I would do anything to have her back. I was so wrapped up in helping her and trying to take care of her and a sick Mom. I feel I was just not present. I can't remember things about her and I was not even thinking about the impact of losing her. I want her back so bad. I ache for her.
This last year has been so so traumatic for me. I have had so much on my plate that I feel I did not live in the moment and appreciate what I had. I feel like I was so involved in the dramas of my life that I missed being with her. I did not think I would lose her so soon. It happened so fast.
Never did I thing about how hard it was to lose her. I just ache. Thanks for letting me vent. I send my love and support to all on here missing their family.

Rufus is waiting.

In the mean time, give it a little time and save another life, if only in memory of your dearest friend.

Our animal friends are only given to us as a loan-luckily there are always new friends available to borrow.

I lost my wife, my home, all my pets and most of my belongings in a single morning-because of unjust laws and a single, evil person's irrational spite.

When it looked like it was the end-there was my darling Maggie, waiting for someone to love her, so she could love them back.

Don't deny yourself a new companion.

krakenten, you have an admirable, inspiring outlook. I'm so very sorry you have had to endure this tragedy, the loss of so much. Thank you for your encouragement to those who are in need of it.

Kasey, I know how you feel. So many here know how you feel. I think most of us have been there, and know the hurt of that empty spot in our hearts when a beloved pet leaves us. Some of mine have been gone 20 years, and I still miss them very much. Each one is a different individual, and cannot be replaced, but there is always room and love for another furry friend. Don't be hard on yourself over what you think you did or did not do, should have done, or wish you had done. Your little girl knew you loved her. That is really all they ask for.

Now, shower that love on someone else, and you'll have a chance to do some things differently. Life teaches us those lessons - the lesson of how short it is, and the lesson of what it means to love. We grow with those lessons.

Best to you.

Kasey,

I'm so sorry about your loss.

Be encouraged. 14 1/2 years is a very long life for a dog. Your doll baby was very fortunate to have you as her human.

I just got another dog to fill the "dog shaped void" in my life... I knew my baby would not want his momma to be without a furbaby.

It always hurts when you lose someone you love.

We just did the same, we lost our Best Buddy in May. He'll never be forgotten but, we were lonely without him. We now have a comical little pup that you just have to smile at! All my best to you.

Thank you so much for that. I have 2 other yorkies that will be 14 in Ocotober. I really thought that 14 was young. I wanted her to live longer. I know.....the wish for all of us. No one will ever take her place. I am thinking I will have to get a horse or a parrot, something that lives longer. This is just too darn short and I can't take the loss.
I was seperated very little from them. I work from home. I spent most of my time with the my dogs. They really are my best friends.
I will always love that little munchkin.

I'm so glad to know that you have other babies at home and you're not alone... !

BTW - Parrots are nice but you still need a dog!
