Since we lost our Princess. God, I miss her so much. I miss just lying with her, running my fingers through her curls as we watched telly. Hearing her snoring or sighing. Or burp after her dinner! I miss hearing her bark from the balcony whenever someone new or strange came to visit or just walked past. I miss her annoyed barks when she heard my footsteps coming home but I stopped to talk to the neighbours for a minute instead of going straight in. I miss her dusty footprints on our bed sheets (which used to really annoy me but now I would do anything to have them back). Finding her cream hairs all over our clothes. I miss choosing her food or treats or toys at the supermarket, and having her sniff the bags when I got back looking for whatever I might have got for her that time. I miss her company. I miss playing football with her. I miss introducing her to new people, and hearing them comment on how beautiful she was. I miss her unconditional love. I miss having something to be truely proud of. I miss taking her swimming. I miss burying my face in her fur and just smelling her.
I want to thank all my new PL friends. I am in a mess right now but I truely believe that if I hadn't found you I would be alot worse! Claire xx

I know how hard it is. It's interesting reading your post because I could say a lot of the same stuff about Foster. It's so hard to lose our friends. I can tell you though that it does get better eventually. Everyone is different in how long it takes but one day it won't hurt so bad. it will still hurt, you will think of her daily, but the overwhelming grief does pass with time.
I lost my Foster 17 weeks and 3 days ago and I still think of him every day, I talk to him everyday and I still cry a little bit almost every day too. Take it day by day and let your tears run. And run here when you need us.

Your post clearly shows how deeply you love your baby and how much you miss her. If only it weren't so painful to lose them. I am so sorry that you are having such a difficult time. It just takes so long to get used to life without them. The milestones and anniversaries can be especially tough. My thoughts are with you.
