Happy One Year Bridgeday to your Nicholas. He sounds like such a wonderful companion and so much more. You speak so eloquently about him and your love for him is evident in your words of love.
Im sure he is with you always and will be waiting for you when its your time .
I loved listening to your song and the article in the paper, it helps me too.

Thank you all very  much.  I can only hope that we all truly heal in our own ways and we all make and have peace in our lives with the absence of all our loved ones,  especially in this case our  pets/friends.

I it hard to believe that it has been one years since you lost your precious Nicolas.   The loss will be forever in your heart, as it is in mine
Have you been able to get another pup yet?   I adopted a little busy bee and he keep my thoughts occupied, but I will always long for the one
I loved, the one that left so soon without warning.

Another year has since passed since we parted ways my friend. And although I have a box with your ashes on my dresser with your picture next to it, I do miss you more than you will ever know.  Of course life moved on but it will never take the place of you being in it for the time we had together. I will always love you unconditionally and one day we will meet again and I look forward to when that day occurs. I am sure you will be the first soul to greet me when I come looking for you across the rainbow bridge.
I love you Nicholas and you are always on my mind.
With love your true friend forever

As I sit here, reading your posts, tears are running down my face.  I am just now at the beginning of my grieving. My best friend, son and constant companion took his last breath at 12:01 am on December 17, 2013.  He'd only been sick for a week but his little body couldn't get better. I've tried to get thru the holiday as quietly as I can. People are celebrating and I'm having a hard time pretending to be okay. I also just got his ashes back yesterday. He sits on the shelf with his picture, looking at me with his sweet eyes. I just wish for 1 one more kiss. Its hard to imagine this emptiness ever going away. Thank you for sharing your experiences of the past 2 years.  It makes me feel not as alone.

Lori, Buddy's mom

You are absolutely not alone.  I feel for you, A LOT.  I sent you back a private message read the words. They are the truest feeling that I could express in this sensitive time of loss.  

Remember the good times you shared.
I am so sorry the loss of your freind

Dear Eric,

The way you wrote about what you loved about your Nicholas was so touching. They can never be replaced - any pups that would come after these very special ones, will be different...they are never the same but hopefully we don't compare them too much, because they all are so unique and have so much to give. I know you still miss him - he was giving you quite the smooch, in the car that day!

Hugs and best wishes for a nice Christmas,

Elise, Buddy's mom

P.S. Lori - thank you for sending me a p.m. earlier, but I could not reply to you, as you have p.m.'s blocked. I'm so sorry for your recent loss of Buddy.

Eric,
thanks so much for responding. I'm new at this and didn't realize I had my private messages blocked so I didn't get your private message. I hope you can resend it. I look forward to reading it.  I feel as tho I'm following in your footsteps.

Elise,
Again, I'm not the best on here. thank you so much for the heads up on my messages being blocked. hopefully I'll get the hang of it.

So I survived Christmas. I visited with my aunt today and she asked how our holiday was.  I told her we weren't doing much this year due to the loss of my Buddy. She seemed surprised. I could see in her face she thought I was silly. I had to fight back the tears. I made it home and had a good cry with my daughter. I'm go glad to know you all are here and I'm not alone in this devastating grief. It's a loss I've never experienced before. Thanks so much for listening.

TO my BEST friend Nicholas. I MISS YOU MORE THAN EVER!!!  Today marks 3 years since I lost you from my life. I come back to this site yearly to mark how much of a loss you were and are from my life. I miss you so much and I miss our unspoken bond the most.  When I think back 3 years ago, I was really ill-prepared for you to leave me. Since that time I fell as if I have been wandering with out my friend.  You added so much color to my life and today when I think about you you ALWAYS bring a smile to my face. So today on this 3 year mark I hope and pray that you are in a happy place and I KNOW that one day we will meet again in another place and another form.  Until that time know that I ALWAYS am thinking about you and I love you so very much.  You will always be my true best friend
I love and miss you immensely

Love always, father, brother & best friend

Eric,
I feel your pain. I'm at my 1 year of missing my little buddy. it doesn't get better with time like people say. I find myself crying when I start to talk about him. I don't want that. I want to get to a point that I can be happy for what he gave me. I just have such a overwhelming sense of loss still. I've put his ashes and pictures next to me just to have him a little closer. my daughter and I got tattoo's yesterday. it's of a heart with a paw print with his name above it. we put these on a hearts. it made yesterday a little easier if that's possible. in my mind buddy is running around having fun, waiting for me. I can't wait to see his sweet face again. I'm thinking about you and your Nicholas today.

with a heavy heart,

Lori, Buddy's mom

Thank you.   I do promise you that it will get better..time heals the loss but never the pain. The most important thing is our memories of our friends.  Your tattoo sounds like a great step in that direction.  You should take a picture of it and make it your icon here in the forum.
Thank you again for your kind words....I remember you from last year and I am happy that things are getting back to a new normal for you and your family...it will never be exactly the same but remember this....your Buddy was part (and still is) a part of your family and you gave Buddy a wonderful life.  Be happy for that

Well my BEST FRIEND...today is FOUR YEARS I live with your absence from my life.  It mat sound self centered to think of me with your presence not in MY life, but because I was left behind thinking of you I have no other way for me to describe the way I feel.

Everyday I think of you in some way of course, but this year it was strange (in perhaps a good way).   I woke up this morning (December 17th) like any other day....and the thought of the anniversary day you left my life was not on mind.   In fact, I didn't even think about it until I logged on to Facebook and it gave me a ONE YEAR AGO memory with your precious face and what I wrote "today is 3 years that I lost my friend and best dog ever" (now four years) and I was shocked!

I really could not believe it was not on my mind.  I am not a forgetful person, so the fact that I didn't write it down or have it in my head accounts for a few things....first and foremost I AM HEALING.      I know you wouldn't want me to daunt over you especially 4 years later...but yes, I have moved onward and although the pain of missing you resides every day in my heart and soul know that today 4 years later I am healing.

I have a wonderful person in my life who loves me (and you would have loved her).
I am happy in a lot of ways I have not been in quite some time.
Most importantly, in regards to you, I am healing from you not being in my life. I miss you more than you'll ever know, because you are (were) my best friend and I know we shall meet up again. However, I like to think when we meet up again one day down this road of life and afterlife there will be an understanding of how this all is supposed to play out and what we were supposed to learn from it all.  EVERYTHING IS A LESSON and helps us grow stronger.
I will quit my babbling now and leave with this thought. You are always loved and pure goodness. You will forever be in my heart and I will check in next year as well as everyday in my mind with our memories.  You were/are the best and I am grateful for the time we shared together Nicholas.  Thank you for those times. I love you, until next December 17th.
XO
Eric

Nicholas...
Today on 12/17/11 was a VERY VERY Dark day and one I will obviously never shake.
Five years! A half of a decade without you...I find it incredible. I miss you more than you know. Of course life moves on and I know you would be so happy for me.
I only with you could be sharing in the love that I have every day with my new wife. Yes, I got married and you would LOVE HER!
She is a wonderful human being inside and out and a beautiful soul.
I met her 6 months after you passed and her furry love a Chocolate Lab named Bailey passed about 4 months or less in to us dating. Both of us are dog lovers, and
both of us needed a hiatus form having a pet and still haven't gotten one.....YET!     One day we will, I promise that.

I do miss you though. You were so kind and honestly Nicholas you were almost human to me. I do pray that our souls will meet again someday. That would make me 
so happy. I believe people and animals are intertwined, we definitely were. You were at a part of my life where you really were my best friend and I can really say that
I needed you. There was a gap of 6 months where I was truly lonely as a person and then my then girlfriend came along to fill that gap. She does fill it, of course in a 
different way however, I come here on a yearly basis to pay respect to a being (which is you) that really got me through some tough times and kept me going and made me
VERY HAPPY, always.  Everyone loved you but you meant the world to me. So on this day of remembrance just know that there are not that many pure kind souls that I have
met in my life. You happen to one of the VERY FEW that I can say I love. Thank you for that, that is what means the world to me.  I LOVE YOU AND I MISS YOU.

Love always your Father, brother and friend
Eric

My dear Nicholas,

Yet another year has passed and you are ALWAYS missed.
My life is happy with my wife, and the only thing missing is you.
Today is now 6 years since you left me and I hope that one day your and my soul will meet up and give each other big hugs and kisses in happiness.

I really can not believe it has been SIX years, so much has happened, changed and really stayed the same.  The one constant is the absence of you.
It's become therapeutic on a yearly basis to talk to you through this site, however you are always on my mind and I think about you very often.
Life does move on, and I hope it does go one in the the afterlife as well.  I hope you are happy in what ever form you are in.

I love you Nicholas. YOU Are VERY MISSED. You were like my son and I will never forget out times together.
Be well my friend,
Love your Father
Eric

To my Nickel Pickle (Nicholas)....Today is 12/17/2018 and I find is incredibly hard to believe that SEVEN years have past since you departed.

First of all you are missed and will never be forgotten.
Secondly, I do this every year as a form of therapy in the absence of you.  It's strange because although I miss many human beings that are no longer with me any more (who perhaps you may be with), I find writing here yearly really does help me connect to you.
So much has changed in my life for both good and bad. Some has and will always be stagnant as well.
My love for you has never changed.  Although I was your friend above all things, I have found love as I have written before.  She is kind, giving, honest, beautiful, warm and above all loves me implicitly and I reciprocate it 100% in return because not only is she good for me she is good to me and that is something I never really had before. I know you would have loved her, she is a pet lover too (especially dogs) and lost her dog not long after you passed. 
SEVEN YEARS is a long time. I am still working things out in my life and it is a process but I am getting to know myself more and learning more about my capabilities.  It is interesting to see when I step back the transformation happening especially with things that I once thought were important and now aren't even a thought.  You however, will always be a thought.
Time heals and we all know that, however while it heals it changes you (hopefully) and I feel it has me, for the better.
That being said, I know you know you are missed. I know your good and genuine soul is still alive and somewhere in the universe. It is such a large place there has to be room for all the good souls in it and even though you were my "pet" in this lifetime I know yours is there watching or perhaps living a life somewhere else. No matter the case, I just hope you are at peace, happy and loved. You always deserved that
I love you Nicolas and as 2019 comes around....know that love will never fade.
I LOVE YOU.   Thank you for coming into my life.
Eric

Eric,
It's been a few years since I've written but I look forward to reading your words to Nicholas every year.

It has been 5 years today since I lost my Buddy. Each year is hard, but today had been more difficult. The loss and loneliness can be overwhelming at times. The people around me just are not able to understand why today is so difficult. But I know you and others here get it.

I love animals as well and would love to rescue a dog but my heart hasn't been open enough to take that on. Maybe one day....

I just wanted to thank you again how comforting it's been for me to read your words all these years and to be able to feel the love you have for Nicolas. Thank you so much.

Lori, Buddy's mom

Thanks for reaching out.  Stay strong, your Buddy loved you as much as you loved Buddy that you can be sure of.  One day you will be connected with your baby again, I truly believe this.
This forum is good for healing and it takes a long time to do that with family members or furry family members the same, it is a different time frame for everyone and every relationship we have. Know that there is nothing wrong with feeling blue because you miss your furry child...to me it is normal.  I will miss my Nicholas for the rest of my life.  Our only hope s that their soul's are happy and we will meet up again, one day on a different level. 
Sending you love through the holiday season and reach out any time

EIGHT YEARS now, wow!

I can not believe how life moves onward and fast too!
You are missed and thought about everyday, but live continues to roll onward.

I am happy with my wife.
I lost my mother and grandmother this year, it's been a long year of both gains and losses.
I hope you greeted  them on the other side with all of the other furry family members I have lost over the years as well as family.

As for you Nicholas, you were a special one.  I will always miss you. On this eighth year, aside from anyone that reads my yearly posts here no one else knows I write this each year. That being said know that I will always love you and will always be thankful you were in my life.   I love you and one day I look forward to seeing you over the rainbow bridge.

You are in my thoughts, always.....be well my friend (until next year)

with all the love in the world,
Your friend, brother, father and caretaker

Eric
