My beautiful girl left this world yesterday she would have been 18 in September we had been together since she was eight weeks old😒😒😒😒

Trixie16,
I am sorry for your loss. It is so painful. But I do believe her and Thor are healthy and playing together again. But please know you have support and people who will listen. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Trixie16,

I am so sorry for your loss.  I too cannot seem to stop looking for Rummy thinking she is going to come up to me and want snuggles.  I know there are no words to ease what you are experiencing so here is a virtual *Hug*.  We are here for you.

Trixie: I am very sorry for your loss -- 18 years is a long time to share lives; I'm sure you miss her deeply. That feeling of expecting my dog to walk in the room is so strong; it has been a few weeks for me, so it has lessened to a degree but I still have those moments. Tell us about your girl! I think it helps to tell some stories, share her with others.

Take care.

Thanks for your reply. I picked up Trixie ashes today.what I remember now is the first time I saw her and her litter mates at about 6 weeks. An fluffy black bundle if energy. The other pups were trying to sleep but she would have none of it. She was determined to wake at least one of them up she went around nudging them and when that didn't work pouncing on them. But they all managed to ignore her. So I picked her up and decided that she would complement her easy going laid back brother Thor who we had already decided to adopt. I always recall this because she had anxiety issues until the end of her life. She was very high energy and w/o an outlet for this she became destructive. Before mobility issues of course i was able to quell of lot of her anxiety with lots of physical activity. But once she started slowing down she really suffered because she so loved being active. She was also an alpha and so she didn't tolerate other dogs except for some submissive males here and there. She was not an easy dog. She craved attention petting even loved being brushed. She bossed her bro around but that how it was. Those two were there own pack and she was in charge and she never let him forget it
He was so fiercely protective of her he outweighed her by 40 lbs and was twice as tall. When she starting losing her hearing when she was about 11 years he became her ears too. Sorry to ramble on they were quite the pair when he passed two years ago some of the fire went out of her hard to explain but it was like she needed him there in order to be the alpha.
Thanks for reading

It is interesting to have that realization that surviving animals can grieve, too. We had three pets:

1. Jack -- the alpha animal, a cat. He was the boss of the four-legged kingdom.
2. Phoebe -- another cat; sort of timid; somewhat detached.
3. Annie -- our dog; totally intimidated by Jack.

Phoebe died several months ago. Neither Jack nor Annie seemed to have a reaction to her departure from our household. Our beloved dog Annie died a few weeks ago. That leaves Jack - who reacted strongly to Annie's disappearance. He is clingy; marches around the house meowing loudly (at 5:30 am!). I am not sure if it is because he noticed he's alone ("am I next?") or it's especially Annie's disappearance.

It's an interesting dynamic for sure.

I've read you should let surviving pets interact with the deceased - sniff, look. But, that isn't always possible.

Sigh.

Today would have been my Trixies and her brother Thor 18th birthday. Thor left me in 8/2016. And almost 2 most since Trixie been gone. I was feeling a bit better but today the tears. 😒😒😒😒
I went to an orientation to volunteer at the local Humane Society and I got all teary eyed.
There is such a huge hole in my life w/o the two of them. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
