It has been three and a half years since I lost my best friend Boo, a blue heeler, to an enlarged heart. He was a rescue and was heartworm positive, but was successfully treated, but the damage was done.

Boo and I bonded intensely and we became best friends very quickly. i was very lucky in that i was self employed and got to take him with me most everywhere I go. We had almost ten years together until he passed away the day after Thanksgiving 2016. Needless to say, I was devastated by losing him. I felt so alone and lost. I have had two dogs since Boo, but to this day I still break down very often when I think of him after all these years. Truly, part of me died inside when he left.

There are those very exceptional best-friend pets. They're all amazing, but with some the bond is extra strong. I lost my amazing cat a few weeks ago. We were glued together. Some dog people don't realize it can happen with a cat, but they're wrong. I feel like a part of me died with him, and I expect this feeling will last for a very long time. So lucky he came into my life. A little stray I captured outside. I don't think we could have loved each other more than we did. Always together. So lucky our paths crossed, but it hurts so much not having him now. I'm sorry you're still in pain over Boo. He clearly was one of those extra-special ones.

First of all, I am very sorry for the loss of your cat. I really believe you understand the relationship I had with my Boo, as you seem to have had the same type of relationship. Thank you for your kind words. I have had dogs my whole life and have loved them all deeply, but once in a while one comes along that is so incredibly special, that was Boo.

I used to tell people that he wasn't a one in a million dog, not at all. To me he was once in a lifetime, never to be another like him. I miss him every single day, but fortunately I have tons of beautiful memories of our life together that will be with me until I see my best buddy again!

Thank you for your post. I can't stop crying this afternoon. Have some "better" days, but then it hits again. Almost 3 months for me. Keep thinking I'm getting through it but I'm not, or maybe the grief is more real now, without the earlier shock and numbness. I miss Coco so much. Life feels so empty without him. The other day I untangled a 100 foot cord. He would have been so excited about it, always in the middle of whatever I was doing. Such a big personality, big 20 lb. boy, smart, funny, huge lover. Always so excited to see me when I came back from a trip. I can't remove his beds or toys. I totally understand how moving could feel like you're leaving her behind. I have mixed feelings about the spiritual side of things, but part of me believes. The first morning after he was gone I was standing in the dining room and there was a light about the size of a quarter that looked like it was just wandering around the floor near me. Who knows?
So sorry for your loss of Chloe. A lot of us have this unbearable pain, and it helps to know there are people who understand.

Blueheelerguy I am sorry for your loss, he does sound exceptional, can you tell me more about him? his character? his habits?

I hope your are able to take comfort in the good times and you sound like an exceptional owner and he was very lucky to have you as well!

I lost my Buddy Boy, he passed away on a hiking trail, i recently opened a post its a fairly long story. I am so stricken with grief and i am unsure how i will bare to get by, the pain is deep and i read your post and wanted to say i understand. My Buddy was exceptional too, he was great with cats, great with my daughter who was a baby and is now 5 and loved other dogs and people, he was a gentle giant who loved the bed and the couch, he was an 80lb puppy and his name suited him perfectly.

I cant believe he is gone
