It been 3 weeks since we had our last day together.  Like other's here, Sunday nights into the early hours of Monday are now hard to face these days. 

In 2006, you came into my life when I needed you most. I had been recently diagnosed with PTSD and my doctors felt getting a dog would help my journey thru mental health.  and they were right, you were my guide to accepting, moving forward one step at a time, living in the moment, stopping to smell the flowers, and a reason to stay tethered to this place.  Your intuition and training helped you become my service dog, you woke me from night terrors, you made sure I woke up and got out of bed each day, you made the outside world less terrifying. I felt safe when you were by my side and I know you felt just the same. 

Some times is hard to breath without hearing you snore or sigh as you get comfortable. Im struggling to find my routine, one that isnt waking up with you and facing life no matter what. I know you are still my guide and my love for you is beyond time and space.  

You were my best friend for 12.5 yrs and the longest connection ive had in my life.  When others came and went, you were always here, by my side no matter where life took us. and until we meet again, please know You are forever in my heart.

all my love to you Mossimo, all my love

Beautiful.  I'm in tears.

3 weeks, is no time at all.  Mossimo is still in your heart, as sure as a piece of you has gone on with Mossimo.

It's been 4 and 5 years since my boys left.  Think of them every day, and in a sense we are still together, until we meet again.

Hang in there.  It gets better in time  We here understand all to well.

thanks Mondo for your kindness and support.  It has been a tough 3 weeks and the grief feels relentless on a physical level.  I know i will get through this and I know my heart will always be with him.

What a wonderful and loving tribute to your beloved, Mossimo . I know how you feel. It does get easier but your heart will always be broken. Your beloved took a piece with him to hold onto until you meet at the Bridge and walk hand and paw together to Heaven. Life is never the same but you do go on.  3 weeks is like yesterday, give yourself time. It's been 23 months since I let my beloved Termy go and my heart is still shattered. I am so glad that you had him and he had you. What a wonderful team. Remember the journey and all he taught you.
Love and doggie hugs

Hang in there MossimoLove. I think the late evening and nighttime hours are worst for me. That's normally when I got to spend the most time everyday with Taz. Like I titled my post "Longest week of my life," time just seems to drag...

hi little man,  today will be 4 weeks since i last saw you smile.  im moving forward at my own pace and i still miss you dearly every minute.  the looping guilt track of the "what could have and what should have" i have done sooner, better, faster still is hard to ignore. But im doing like you taught me, keep my head up, stay in the present, and keep moving forward.  

not a moment goes by that i dont find something to keep you here with me even if its in replaying all the memories we built together.  im glad we had our last month and half spending every minute together, and im grateful we made it back to Oakland, i think you wanted to be here one last time.  its the closest thing we called home in all our years together.  

thank you my big boy, for the unconditional love and companionship. you changed my life forever and my heart, my soul and my perspective will never be the same. 

i hope to see you soon in a dream, you are always with me.
all my love, Mossimo, all my love

Happy 13th birthday, Mossimo, my little man, my big boy. 

We never did anything special on our bdays, but I did make sure we were always together to have a dog day of simple pleasures, long walks, extra treats, naps snuggled together, a car ride.

I miss you terribly, little man.  The world has lost its color since you had to go, but im trying to let the light back in.
I hope you know how much you meant to me, and how much you saved my life over the years.  You were by guardian and champion of love, my tether to this world. 

Im so grateful for the years we had together, you kept the loneliness at bay and gave me unconditional love that i never had before.  It is etched in my heart and is the true gift of our time together.  

Happy Birthday, big boy, mommy's love for you is still as strong as ever. 
I hope to see you in my dreams.
Forever my love beyond space and time. 
all my love, Mossimo, all my love.
