Thank you for posting that Poem. I lost my Long Haired Chihuahua after a C Section 1 week ago today. I lost all her pups too, they only lived 3 days. The Vet said it had never happened to her before. It is all a long story. But thank you for that poem. I surely needed it. I do not know what to do with all this sad, guilt and anger. BH
Thanks for the poem. A friend of mine died this morning unexpectedly at 34 y.o. So I have not been in the best of moods today. The poem was great to read. I know it was meant for pets on this forum but it definitley is hitting home for a human friend right now.
I have about two weeks before I have to put my dog down, so I can get new homeowners insurance, and that poem made me cry. He's in this room with me right now, but soon he won't be. My heart is breaking, just thinking about it.
"I have about two weeks before I have to put my dog down, so I can get new homeowners insurance, and that poem made me cry. He's in this room with me right now, but soon he won't be. My heart is breaking, just thinking about it."
Is it just me or something does not sound right about this posting?
I lost my best friend, Trooper (Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix), August of 2003. I had to put him to sleep because of kidney failure, he was suffering. I was extra close to him because I was there when he was born, almost everyday in the weeks after, and everyday from 8 weeks of age until he died.
I didn't think this was the right thread to explain the whole situation: My dog bit someone two years ago and the man sued me. No one will insure me including the dog, and I cannot afford the 1700 dollars to insure just him. I also cannot afford to not have him insured. If he bites again, even though I muzzle him when people are over, I can possibly go to jail or lose my house, for knowing I have an aggressive dog. He is a family pet and is in no way aggressive to me, my husband, or our 2 children.
Any other questions, feel free to ask, but I was just feeling sad last night and wanted to respond to that poem. I love my dog very much.
here is another great poem, i don't know who wrote it, don't remeber where i found it,i've posted it before, but here it is if you haven't seen it before.
"There's something missing in my home, I feel it day and night. I know it will take time and strength, Before things feel quite right. But just for now i need to mourn, My heart---it needs to mend Though some may say "it's just a pet" I know i've lost a friend You've brought such laughter to my home, and richness to my days... A constant friend through joy or loss, With gentle loving ways. Companion, pal, and confidante A friend i won't forget You'll live always in my heart, My sweet forever pet..."
i hope it helps. ^shay916^
