Dear Bart,

It was 11 years ago that I had to make the most difficult, terrible decision I have ever had to make in my life.  I held you in my arms as you took your last breath.  You are such a good dog and didn't deserve for things to end the way they did.  I love you so much - still do.  All I think about is you being healed, and happy, and chasing after a tennis ball, and being next to Zoey, who joined you a year ago.  You still occupy a spot in my heart and some days I still can't get over the fact that you are gone.  I will never, EVER forget you and the life we shared.  Please be patient...we will be together at some point.

Dear dad of Bart and Zoey,

I just found this thread and read the entire thing, from the very first post. I lost my beloved cat, Betsy-Bear, on July 18. I have never felt so much pain, but like someone wrote on here, I’d so much rather that I suffer, than have her suffer even a minute longer. I don’t know if that realization helps - since I’m still crying every day - but I’m pretty sure I did the best thing for her, and I hope she understands, wherever she is now.

The thing that struck me about your posts is that you clearly haven’t lost an ounce of the love you had for Bart when he was with you in this life. I’ve been so afraid of losing Betsy-Bear’s memory, like, afraid that the passage of time will somehow make me love her less - or that another, future pet will make me love her less. I’m afraid of forgetting every little thing about her. The dedication you have to Bart’s memory, and your sweet sweet notes to him here for so many years, is so comforting to me. I just wanted to tell you that.

I hope so much that Bart, Betsy-Bear, and all the others are out there, watching over us and waiting for us to be reunified some day. Thank you for your posts and showing me that I don’t need to be afraid of the passage of time.

Bets’ Mom

I am so sorry for the loss of your Betsy-Bear.  She sounds like such a special dog and took a piece of your heart with her.  Can you post pictures of her?

Somehow for me, posting to him occasionally helps keep him alive.  The older I get the more I realize how important it is to recognize special, close relationships.  My Bart was like that.  I think about him all the time - his character, his quirks, his undeniable love, and the incredible strength he gave me just by ALWAYS being there for me.  Whatever route you choose to do, do it with the fullest support.  Everyone handles things different and there is no right or wrong way to grieve over the loss of someone like Betsy-Bear.

Thank you for helping me to keep his memory alive.

I just celebrated your birthday recently.  We even talked about you yesterday buddy.  I can't believe how much I miss you.
