I lost my best friend on Saturday May 10, 2008. Penny came into my life 13 years ago and she changed it forever. I loved her with all my heart and soul, but love couldn't keep her here. Diabetes finally claimed her, and she is now at rest in my backyard.

I have a neighbor who has an adorable puppy. Last night the puppy got out of their yard and wandered about two blocks away. A nice woman found her and was canvassing the neighborhood trying to find it's owner. The neighbor is away, we have no idea how the puppy got out, and we agreed to keep the puppy until the owner got home.

Well, the neighbor has still not gotten home. The puppy slept at our house last night and it is near noon and the neighbor is still not back.

I cried most of the day yesterday and my wife and daughter were very supportive. They now both feel that my Penny sent the puppy here to help me cope with her death. I don't know if it is true or not. No other dog has been in my backyard since our family, including Penny, moved here 8 years ago. I don't know if Penny sent her or not, maybe it is her way of saying that I should not grieve and that she still loves me.

God I miss my Penny!

Dear DaSarge,

I am so very sorry you have lost your beloved little Penny.  I know the pain you are going through is so intense and unrelenting right now.   She was simply your joy, wasn't she?

I believe that our little departed ones send us messages that they are okay, so I wasn't surprised to hear of the puppy that found it's way into your home.   Maybe Penny was trying to distract you a bit from your grief.    Once, when I was in deep mourning over losing my beloved terrier, Betsy, both my husband and I heard her bark.   It was quite the moment. 

I hope you continue to come here for support when you feel the need.   This website has helped me tremendously since I lost Betsy.   We will be here for you.

Hugs,
Melissa
Betsy's forever mom

Dear DeSarge,

I am so sorry for your loss of your sweet girl, Penny, and for the terrible pain that you are feeling at losing her.  These precious little souls sure do have a way of wrapping themselves in our hearts so that we are never again the same. It is so very hard to go on without them, and the grief feels overwhelming, especially at first when it is still so raw. What a special love you shared with your Penny for all of those years...how could that love and connection not continue on forever? 

I think that you are absolutely right ~ your Penny sent you that puppy as a sign that she will be with you always, and that she wants you to be happy.  I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts.  I hope that you can find peace in knowing that Penny is well and happy at the Rainbow Bridge, and is surrounded by fur friends who will keep her safe.

Sending hugs and healing wishes,
MaxsMom ~ Joanne

Thank you so much for your kind words. Only those that have had companions such as my Penny know how much it hurts when they are gone. Part of my heart died yesterday and I miss her already. I do get comfort in the fact that she lived a great life while she was here and that she knew how much she was loved.

I don't recall ever shedding as many tears as I have over Penny. She was the most faithful, trusting and yes, forgiving friend that I have ever had. I miss her terribly and it is a group like this one that helps.

Sorry for your loss of Penny. I know it's very, very hard.

Yes, I do believe they send over help or emotional support when we esp. need it. Before my 4 yr. old Peanut, a beautiful orange/white cat, passed on (he wasn't sick and still a very young little guy yet)we had a little friend arrive from across the street. This little guy was about the same age, too (coincidence?).

 My Peanut passed on, maybe one month after this new little guy started visiting us. We ended up adopting our "visitor." That was 10 yrs. ago and this little guy is now 15 1/2 yrs. old.

Take care.
