A beautiful tribute to your sweet
Christopher. Your love for him glows in each word you write. Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories with us of your boy.
 
I have faith that Christopher is watching over you with love and pride for how you reach out to others here with your caring words and heart.

I Am here

 

When you look into the summer
sky I am there. When you look into
the eyes of a true friend I am there.
When you hear a song that touches
your heart it is I. When you feel the
sun on your face it is a million kisses
from me. When someone calls you
friend it is me saying those words to you.

Look into the night sky and see
the stars twinkle back at you it is a
message from me saying find joy, I
want you to be happy and find laughter
in your life. When you give to others
you are giving to me and I am there.
Let other's touch your heart because
I am reaching out to you through them.
When you let someone in you will
see the joy of love and be forever
with me. Love never ends.
Here I am

I would first like to thank all 334 People who have read my Tribute To Christopher.  It means so much to me.  It is so comforting to know that I have so many friends who are sharing the same overwhelming pain as I am.  I would not wish this pain on anyone, but knowing that all of you are here makes all the difference in the world to me.  I know that Christopher appreciates you being here for me as well.

Golda's Mom:
I know what a nightmare it has been for you losing Golda.  In spite of your pain you have been here for me and so many others.  I appreciate your help so much.  Yes this year has been a nightmare for me and a life altering experience that I never want to go through again.  How does one go on and heal without their soul?  I do not know how to do that.  Christopher and I were one and that bond will never be taken from us.  I will miss him for Eternity and will always look forward to the day I can hold him in my arms and say, "You Are My Man And I Love You."

Amy:
Thank you for your sweet thoughts and for always being here for me.  I know how awful your life has been since you lost your dear sweet Arthur.  And now that one year mark is almost here for you.  I can tell you that for me it was the second worst day of my life.  You are so sweet to think of Christopher in so many special things that you do.  I know that Christopher is so glad that you are here for his mommy.  I am sure that Christopher and Arthur are having a wonderful time together as they wait for us to arrive.  They will always be safe in our hearts.

Jackie:
Thank you for the beautiful poem and your thoughtful words.  I know that Christopher is always with me as I can hear him speak to me constantly.  Christopher is still my rock.  Your poem was so appropriate as I speak to Christopher's star every night.  We live in the country so the sky is always clear and beautiful with a lot of stars.  Christopher's Star is always in the same place when I go out at night and is the only one that sparkles brightly; that is how I know it is Christopher telling me he loves me and miss me too.  When I go to bed at night his Sweet Sparkling Star is always looking into my window.  I know he is always watching over me and I know that he will Forever.  The poem is so right in that Love Never Ends.  Who would have ever thought that a little ball of fur could teach you so much and bring so much Joy into your life.

Dear Georgeann,

As I read the beautiful replies to your message about Christopher-it made me think of all the

people you have helped through your caring words and acts. So many including myself were so honered to have their fur children on your Angel Tree. We have all been brought together in this Petloss Family by the loved ones we have been separated from. Perhaps they knew and led us here. When we did a search for Pet Loss Support

how did we choose this one? The answer is written in the wind...and maybe at the Rainbow Bridge.

 

Love and blessings to you and your beautiful

fur-angel Christopher.

 

Mommy I love you.

I'm sending you Rainbow Colored Hearts.

 

 

 

 

Love and Hugs,

Carol

Dearest Carol:
I am so honored to have my petloss family as friends.  I was honored to have the petloss tree at my house and will do it every year until I am no longer on this earth.  Hopefully when I am gone someone in my family will carry on the tradition. 

I would not have survived Christopher's loss had it not been for all of you.  Everything I write is from my Heart and written with the hope that it helps someone else heal.  In turn, everything written by all of you helps me to heal as well. 

I too find it amazing that we all found this wonderful site.  I do believe that Christopher played a part in my discovering this wonderful family.  In addition, I do believe that God has plans for all of us and obviously bringing us together was part of that plan.  I do not know why we are all here, but I do know that everyone here is caring, loving, compassionate and understanding, and I am proud to say that I am part of this amazing family.  

You are such a talented wonderful person and I am honored to have you as my friend.  There is nothing I can say that would adequately express my appreciation for everything you have done for me and others.  Your beautiful work and creations have brought so much Joy and Peace to all our Lives. 

Love and Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher
Forever

Oh Georgeanne, I so love listening to your stories of your beautiful Christopher.  Such a gorgeous puppy.  I wish I would have seen your post earlier, but I spent the last week panicing over my first chemo treatment.  We sure have a lot in common.  My one year old shih tzu Casey is helping me to get through this.  I had my first treatment yesterday and so far I've had no nausea, in fact I felt so good this morning I worked out at the gym.  It might hit me later, but so far so good.

I thought a lot about my sweet Nicky that I lost December 2006 and I realize that I'm grateful that my cancer waitied until he was gone.  As hard as it was to lose him, 20 months with a heart problem is a long time.  The last 6 months of his life was physically and mentally exhausting for me.  I hardly slept because of his coughing and drinking so much water during the nights.  I hardly ever left him, worried constantly and giving him his pills twice a day was always such a challenge.  Having Casey as a constant source of entertainment with unconditional love and lots of kisses really helps right now.  I could never had survived the stress I'm going through now if I was still stressed out taking care of Nick.

Your story about how Christopher looked as a puppy reminded me of when my husband bought Nicky for me.  He told me he bought me a black and white shih tzu and showed me a picture of him at 3 days old.  I said "Oh my gosh, that's not a shih tzu, I think it's a beagle"  But he ended up being beautiful as well. 

Thank you for sharing your stories and I'm so glad your a cancer survivor.  I sure hope to be one as well.  God bless you, Mary

Dearest Mary:
I was so glad to see your post and so glad to hear that you made it through your first treatment.  I think about you so often as I know how much you miss Nicky and I know how frightening it is to hear you have breast cancer.  I know that Nicky and Christopher are watching over you.

I know exactly what you mean when you say you would have never made it through this if you had Nicky to worry about.  Like Nicky Christopher was extremely ill for quite some time.  I slept short periods during the night and always with the lights on for the last 6 months of Christopher's life.  I was terrified that something would happen to him and that I would not be there for him.  He was my focus 24/7.  While it was stressful, I would do it again without hesitation.

Christopher was my savior through my cancer treatments and I am sure Casey will be through yours.  They have an incredible sixth sense and know when you need them the most.  You are so right when you say we have a lot in common.  As soon as I can I will post a picture of Rollo; you will not believe how much he looks like Casey. 

I know that Christopher sent Rollo to me to help me through this nightmare.  No one will ever replace Christopher but this sweet little guy tries so hard to make my life better.  He does so many things like Christopher that it is eerie.  I am sure that Nicky found Casey for you.   

We will miss our babies Forever, but they will Always Be Safe In Our Hearts.  Take Care of Yourself and stay in touch.  Remember I am Always here if you need Anything.

Big Hugs

Thanks Georgeann for the encouraging words.  Last 3 days have kicked my butt, but I think I'm recovering now.  Your right, our babies will always be safe in our hearts.  I didn't even realize that you had another baby.  I would love to see a picture of Rollo, what a cute name.

Today is the one year anniversary since we brought Casey home and I think he knows it.  He's been absolutely nuts today, playing and going more crazy than usual if that's possible.

I look forward to seeing a picture of Rollo, God Bless you, Mary

I'm sorry I'm just posting, I've been away for awhile.  I know how hard the one year anniversary is.  I still miss Jasmine every day as I know you miss little Christopher.  What a beautiful dog he was.  I love seeing your photos of him.  I don't know if I ever mentioned it but I had a dog of the same breed growing up named Fluffy and he was one of the sweetest dogs ever.  This breed just has a wonderful temperment and definitely are such loving and caring creatures.

I've been busy writing a little novel of sorts about my life with Jasmine and just finished.  How nice it will be to have a written reminder of everything I shared with her.  She is never far from my thoughts and always in my heart as I know your Christopher is.

Take good care, my friend and know I'm thinking of you as you mark your first year anniversary.

Dear Kathy:
Thank you so much for your wonderful thoughts.  How wonderful that you are writing a book; hopefully I will get to read it.  I too have thought about doing the same thing.  I wish I had more time so that I could get it done.

I know that losing Jasmine has been as hard for you as losing Christopher has been for me.  The one year mark was like losing him all over again.  The pain is still overwhelming.  There will never be another Christopher and I will miss him Forever.  The tears still flow every day and I think of him all day long.  How can you not think of someone who is part of your soul? 

We were so fortunate to have such Precious Angels in our lives.  May God's Angels watch over them until we are with them again.  It was so good to see a post from you again.  Stay in touch.  You are in my Prayers as always.

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher

Just a quick post, Georgeann, to let you know I am thinking of you and your beloved Christopher.  I know you miss him every minute of every day.   A love like the one the two of you shared does not come along but once in a lifetime.  I am wishing you peace, my friend, and hoping Christopher's beautiful spirit is beside you the rest of your days.  I truly believe he is, Georgeann.  Take care of yourself and keep us posted on how you are doing.
Sending a big hug to you,
Melissa
Betsy's forever mom

Betsy, be a good girl and go find Christopher and give him a big hug and sloppy kiss for his mommy.  She misses him so.  Sleep beside him and keep him warm tonight.  I love you little girl and I miss you everyday.

Thank you so much for your kind words and for making sure that Betsy takes care of Christopher for me.  I know that my Heart will be broken Forever and that I will Always miss Christopher every minute of every day.  It is so comforting to know that all of you are here for me in spite of your pain.  I know how hard It has been for you since you lost Betsy and yet you have been here for all of us.  Of course reading your message to Betsy made me cry.  It is so beautiful, so thoughtful and so comforting.  Betsy's sweet little face tells it all; I am sure you miss her more than words can describe and will Forever just as I will miss Christopher.  You are always in my Prayers.

Hi Georgeanne,
First I need to thank you for all the support you don't even know you gave me. Your Christoper is just beautiful. What a precious little guy he is. I am so sorry for your deep loss. I feel your pain every day as I lost my precious Tiffany on Feb. 23 2007, a Shih Tzu as well. She was my very best friend. She was 16 yrs 1 month and 23 days old when I had to say good bye to her. The worse day of my life, and I relive it every day.I miss her terribly. She went into heart failure, after several trips to the vet within 2 months she stopped eating for me, I tried everything I could. One night I made her every food I could think of that she ever ate in hopes something would be appealing to her, but it didn't work. That week I had to make (people say it's an act of love) the biggest decision of my life for her. I couldn't bare to put one more pill or syringe down her throat, she was so tired an weak. I know I was lucky to have her for so long, but that doesn't make it any easier. I found this website out of desperation one day looking for some type of support. I am a little ashamed that I couldn't gather myself enough to respond to all of these blessed people helping each other. I did pray for everyone and I lit my candles and tried a few times to register, but I just couldn't. What I do know is that this website helped me so much, I still cry all the time. I am trying to fill myself with only the good memories and oh there were so may, but it's hard when a piece of you is gone. I had a ring made with Tiffany's birthstone in it to always remember her by. She was my precious angel. I related to so many things you said, your feelings and your pain. I know we will see them again. But until God makes that decision we are here to go on with them always in our memory and our hearts. I met Tiffan'y when she was 1 day old, I will never forget her. I hope her and Christoper have met each other. They are probably saying " stop crying mom" we are ok. I am not big on readying but I read 4 books on grieving for animals this past year, and I guess there is no time in eternity so from the time they leave and we get there is nothing. It's us and our sadness and the days and weeks and months and now a whole year already. So Georgeanne, take care of yourself, my thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless our babies...

" I love you my Sweet Tiffany, I miss you always".....

Dearest Trisha:
I am so sorry for the loss of your Precious Tiffany.  Shih Tzus are such special little people.  I know that Christopher was a one of a kind little guy and I know that there will never be another.  Losing Christopher has been the most difficult loss I have experienced in my entire life.  He was my Heart, My Soul and My Best Friend. He stole my Heart and took my soul with him when he left me.  I still cry for him every day, over 14 months after his loss.  While Christopher and I had a lot of Precious Memories, trying to focus on them does not work.  The Grief hits like a tsunami-for no reason and without warning. 

I went though a lot of the same things with Christopher as you did with Tiffany.  He too was in congestive heart failure.  He also had pulmonary hypertension.  He was on so many medications the last year it was frightening.  I still remember coming home after he left me and throwing out all his medications.  I was appalled at how many he was taking.  I too could not stand to put one more pill or one more syringe down his throat. In the end my grief and the fear of losing him overcame my ability to function.  I still do not remember driving home after he left for the Bridge. I just remember being at home screaming and screaming and yelling at God for taking my baby. 

I remember the last thing he ate was corned beef.  My vet said it was not the best for him because of all the salt but it was all he would eat.   Letting him go was the most difficult decision of my life.  I will never forget him dying in my arms-Never.  It is hard to describe, but I truly felt my soul leave with him.  I begged God to let me leave too, but as you can see I am still here and still grieving.  I have come to accept the fact that I will grieve for Christopher Forever. 

I am sure that Tiffany and Christopher are good friends as he loved sweet little girls.  I know that they will be waiting for us at the Bridge when we arrive, but as you say it simply does not help with the grief.  I have counted each day since Christopher left as that means I am one day closer to being with him again Forever.  I know that my life will never be complete without him.  You and Tiffany are in my Prayers.  If you ever need anything my email address is GMckee2406@aol.com 

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher

Dearest Cathleen:
Thank you for your kind reply to Christopher's post.  I just responded to your post about Jess.  I know your heart is broken just like mine.  I wish I could tell you that it gets easier, but I have not found that to be the case.  These Precious Angels were part of our souls and our souls left with them.  I believe our Hearts will be broken for Eternity.  I would give the world to hold Christopher in my arms one more time.  We will miss our babies Forever.  The day is almost over, which is the best part of the day for me as that means I am one day closer to being with Christopher again Forever.  I have counted each day since he left and will continue to do so until I am once again with him Forever.  You and Jess are in my Prayers.

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher

Thank you for your wonderful post.  No need to apologize as I understand how hard it is to read the posts and respond. There are days I come here and cannot write one word as all the grief just breaks my heart.  You are so right in that these Precious Babies are the teachers and we are the students.  These Precious Angels teach us that True Love and Health are really the only important things in life and they are things that money cannot buy.  I know we will miss our babies Forever. 

Big Hugs
Georgeann and Christopher
