Hi all, 

I just recently lost my best friend, my son a six year old min pin on 4/12/2017 and the grief, the pain is so hard. As an adult, he was my first dog that I could truly call all mine. Our bond was so strong from the moment I adopted him. Unfortunately, my little guy suffered in a house fire. All my belongings, gone - but none of that matters because the most precious one to me is him. 

I'm constantly blaming myself, as I was his protector as much as he was mine. We definitely found security in each other. As much as he wanted to be my protector, I wasn't there to save him. Or at least comfort him in his last breath and that bothers me to no end. I keep seeing him in my mind scrambling through the house for me, for help but I wasn't there. My innocent guy didn't know what to do but run to my bedroom for comfort. I'm not sure how I am going to move pass this, especially with all the instability. It seems like my healing will be long down the road. I have to adjust to him being gone while I stay in temporary housing. And then once I am able to go back to my home months from now, whatever healing I may have done, I feel will regress. I will have to get used to living in my home without him again. I don't want this hurt at all.

My Chez, I will always always love you, always. Please forgive me. I wish I was there for you.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. A friend of mine lost 4 dogs in a house fire last year and I know how devastated she was. One of the fireman said they don't usually suffer from the fire, that they go to sleep from the smoke. That was what it looked like when he found her babies.

I wish I had words to heal your unbearable pain but there are none. Remember the incredible love the two of you share. Chez knew every day of his precious life that you love him. You showed him in every way and he loved you in return. Your bond cannot be broken. He is still with you, he lives on in your heart and I believe you will be together again, never to be parted.

I know you lost Chez, your home and all your belongings and how devastated you are. At a time like this you need your friends and family more than ever. Reach out to them, talk about what you are feeling. I promise you are not alone.

This website has helped so many hurting hearts and we are here for you. There is a chat room where you can communicate with others. Above all let your tears flow, talk, do whatever it takes to release your pain.

My deepest condolences
