It's hard for me to describe how empty I feel right now, but when my 10 year old Huskie died today, I feel like I died too.

She's not going to be at the door to greet me when I get home from work, she's not going to sleep near my bed, and she's not going keep me company when I stargaze on warm summer nights, or run through piles of leaves that I raked in the Fall. She's gone.

I'm so sorry if this thread brings you down, but I have to write about it. Don't even know if this will help the healing process, but it's on my mind, and I can't not think about it.

After she passed away, I thought a long time if she had a soul, and if there is an afterlife for her, that she can be happy, and free of the pain that she endured in her last days. I can't even stand to think of the alternative, which would be that she suffered, and then everything went black for her...forever.

I wish that I could hug her one more time, and tell her what a good dog she was. I'm going to miss her.

Oppyh,

I'm so sorry. I know exactly the emptiness you feel, for I felt it too when I lost my cocker spaniel Jack.

My husband and I stood and sobbed when he left us and I asked a lot of the same questions.

Here's the answer as far as I believe...

A creature as loving and beloved as my Jacky could not have just slipped into "the black". He had a soul and a conscience. He is where I will go when I die.

It will get better. I promise. You will still miss your beloved companion, but you will be able to speak of her without crying, you will smile when you remember what she did and you will love again.

These things happened for me. I know they will happen for you.

**HUGS**

I'm so sorry that you lost your dog.
Hey, Oppyh it's good to write these things down when you're feeling sad so, no need to apologize. I cried a tear too, 'cause I know how you must feel. My dog was like a second child to me. It's hard not to be heartbroken when they're gone, after years of loyalty and unconditional love for you. I'd never seen my partner cry like he did the night we buried our pal 18 months ago.
Like FollowMal said it will get better.

I'm so sorry... you have my deepest sympathies.

I've been where you are now (twice) and it can be incredibly hard to bear, but there will come a time when you will remember all the joys you had with your pup without it hurting so badly.

And if there's a heaven for anyone at all, it's definitely for dogs. No creature so full of unconditional love could possibly wind up anywhere else.

So... your puppy's up there playing with my puppies, enjoying themselves until we get to join them someday. At least that's the way I like to picture it... hope it helps.

What sad news, maybe you need to think on what an amazing life she had, you hear of so many neglected and abused animals yet your lovely husky sound like she had the best owner in the world, someone who loved her and will never forget her. As a keen doglover my thoughts are with you!

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
Till time wasted me
Never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
'Cause the person I am
Are the parts that I play
So I plot and I plan
Hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams
And I'm holding on tight
To a world gone astray
As they charge me for years
I can't pay

I'm really sorry about your loss, Oppyh. I lost one of my dogs over a year ago now, and the memory still hurts sometimes. It'll take a little time, but I know you'll make it through okay. And you'll always have us to help you through.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Oppyh, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husky. We can see how much she meant to you. I think all of us have experienced that loss before, I know I have and I can tell you that even though it hurts now, it will get easier.

Hold on to the happy memories of her and know that somehow, someway, she will be waiting for you on the other side to gaze at stars and meet you at the gate when you finally arrive.

Take care and keep flyin' my friend.

So sorry to hear of your loss. It is a sad day, and it won't be soon forgotten.

I lost my beautiful Mastiff Tessa very suddenly 5 years ago, after battling illness for only 14 hours. I have yet to fully recover, and we only recently were able to let a new dog into our lives after the perfection that was our Tess.

I know how you feel. (HUG)

America loves a winner!


She had a great life and a great friend in you, and don't think for a moment she didn't know that. Not much in life is certain, but having had it so good as she did while here, I'd say she's one happy pup.

I lost a Huskie too, so I can empathize, at least a bit. Max didn't live 10 yrs, but he sure got and gave plenty of love to our family.


Hang in there.

People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy. - Joss

So sorry to hear it. The pain is so great to lose your best friend. 10 years is a good long time, you gave that dog a great, wonderful life. She was so lucky to have you.

Here's another Browncoat hug. It hurts so much to lose a member of the family.

I lost my kitty of 18 years a while ago and I still miss her. She was a demented psycho known all around the neighbourhood as beautiful, viscous and unpredictable -- 7 pounds of territorial fury. But we had a bond. I know she's Queen of the Pampas in some other beyond.

Thanks everyone for all the kind words. It's hard to deal with, but all of you have made this whole experience less painful. I love my fellow Browncoats, and it's times like these that prove this is the best site in the verse.
Thank you so much.

I've lost two kitties in my life, and both times were extremely heart-breaking. I can't send enough hugs and kisses to you!

But it'll get better, I promise. You'll be able to remember all the good stuff without the sad, someday! Hang in there!

Oppyh,

As with everyone here, I send my condolences to you. On October 18th, 2006 my wife and I lost our first "baby". We had our Basenji/Chihuahua for a couple years before we had any children. She died at the age of 12, and losing her (as far as I'm concerned) is just as hard as losing a child.

One of the things I did, that really helped my healing, was create a Myspace page in rememberence of her. The time I put in was enough of a distraction to keep me from bawling, and the end result helps me to remember her and the good times we had without rummaging through tons of picture books.

I invite you and anyone else to take a look. I'm not ashamed of it. She was my baby, and I miss her still today.

Oppyh,
As another who has lost several four-legged family members over the years, I also offer my condolences and a hug or two. Remember the good times and have a good cry through the laughter and smiles.

My condolences as well. Whatever you believe about an afterlife, I'll guarantee she'll be there waiting for you.

oppyh

sorry for your loss. I know we have all been there- and only time helps.

Animals are such a great addition to anyone's life... I hope you find some peace in the days ahead. And when you are ready- find another companion to bring you their love in four legged form.

No house should be without a critter for company.

My grandma used to say, if it can smile, it has a soul. And we all know dogs can smile. I am very sorry for your loss. We lost a beloved pet earlier this year, so I know how you feel.

I am sure your huskie had a wonderful life with you.
