I knew it was coming up, July 17th started as a regular day but that didn’t last long. Sweet Raider was tragically and very, very accidentally hit and passed that morning. I hadn’t even played with him that morning. I feel like I should have protected him. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was a heartbreaking accident and I do not blame the driver. It was a freak, freak thing.

We all miss him so very much and today, one month in, it seems so raw again.

There is talk of another dog but not to replace Raider. No dog could do that or ever be expected to do that.

I feel so guilty. Maybe if we had gone to a movie like I had thought about he would have been inside and none of this would have happened and on and on. Times I turned away the kisses or just didn’t play with him as long as he would have played again, on and on.

I miss my boy. Rest In Peace, Raider. You will always been in our hearts.

Stay strong Paula. It will be a month on Monday since my sweet boy Jackson was put to sleep. There are days I do fairly well and then there are mornings like today I seem to not stop crying.
I suppose this is normal because will loved out pets SO VERY STRONGLY. How could we not? They loved us unconditionally for years and years.
I am tempted to get another pup but I do not think I am ready. I believe I need to heal more before I am able to do this.

Stay strong and realize it takes quite awhile to get over a beloved family member. Today I am giving myself permission to cry because I know how much I truly loved my Jax. You need to give yourself permission to grieve and heal. Do not be so hard on yourself.....our pets loved us and we loved them just as strongly.

Thank you so much. In the midst of your pain over sweet Jax, comforting me.
I am working on trying to not feel so guilty. It is so strange to not hear his little tagS. He was a very quiet dog and so his tags and the snoring are the sounds I miss most.
We will both get pups again and will love deep again. I hope you are okay today and this weekend. I will think of you on Monday.
Again, thank you.

Paula- Raider’s mom
