My perfect dog Sunny was killed yesterday morning. I let him outside and he ran into the street and was hit. I still cannot believe he's not here and I feel completely devastated. We adopted him from a shelter 2 yrs ago. He was a purebred pomeranian and he was a perfect dog. He was loved and adored by all. He was my little friend. I am feeling completely overwhelmed by grief. I keep picturing his little face and it is killing me inside to think I can never walk him again or have him snuggle under the covers with me. I keep feeling like he has to come I can go outside and find him running around the back yard. Please help me. I am crying and heartbroken. Thank you.

Dear zenbabe33,

I want to say that I am so very sorry for your loss.  How terrible for you to lose your sweet little Sunny so suddenly and so tragically!  I can see that you are suffering so very much.  The pain of losing our little guys is just overwhelming, especially in the beginning.  Pomeranians are such precious little fellows. It is easy to sense what a strong bond you have with your boy.  I do understand your pain.  I lost my little ShihTzu, Max, five months ago and I miss him every day ~ he was my heart, as Sunny was yours.  A part of me went with him when he passed.  Going on without our babies is so difficult. I am glad that you found this site...please come back.  This  caring family is what has gotten me through.  I hope that you will find comfort here as well.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Many hugs,
MaxsMom ~ Joanne

I understand your heartbreak. Our fur babies give us so much unconditional love and when they are gone we are empty. I am still working through my lost. It has been a week. The house seems so empty and I miss seeing his adorable face greeting me after a hard day at work.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is so devastating to loss someone you love so unexpectedly. Sunny was so lucky to have been loved so much by his family.  My heart goes out to you. I am so sorry you have to lose someone you loved.

My baby(my love, my life, my joy, my heart, my child) Shadow (6 year old cat) died suddenly two weeks ago. This whole week you might cry all the time. Next week you might only cry once or twice a day. The week after that....? maybe it'll be easier for us both then. The !!"flashbacks" :( easy away slowly as well it seems. I can't make it easier for you. I know your pain and am sorry for you though, if that helps even a little.

oh my God zenbabe.  I truly sympathize with you as the same thing happened to my kitty 5 weeks ago, when he was struck by a truck outside my house.  I still look outside and expect him to come strolling through the garden.  I want to tell you that you are in the right place here.  There are lots of us who are going through the same thing, and we all understand what you are going through with heartbreak and loss.
I will say a prayer for you and your little Sunny- my Hank will show him around the rainbow bridge. 
Many blessings and hugs,
Heather, Hankies forever mommy

((((Zenbabe)))) I feel so sorry for you and know what you are going through.  I lost my Golden Retriever "Butch" who I had for 10 years, suddenly to cancer the end of March this year.  No warning signs, but it was 1-1/2 weeks and then he was gone. 
You are in the right place for solace.  You will meet many friends here that have gone through losses, either recently or maybe a year or two or more.
We all have a story to tell and the support we get in return here is tremendous.
It does get easier to deal with week by week, but the pain never goes away. 
You have to remember, even though Sunny was with you for such  a short while that he still is with you.  His pawprints will always be on your heart and he will be watching over you until it is your time to cross over the Rainbow Bridge to meet him forever to be together again.
Seek comfort here and you will be able to go on. It will take time.
I will keep you and Sunny in my prayers.
Remember to come to the Candle lighting Ceremony on Monday night.
Take care.

Dear zenbabe,

I am so sorry for your tragic and sudden loss of your dear little Sunny.  I truly understand how difficult it is to be without your beloved friend and companion, your furchild and soulmate, your little buddy.  My Boxer boy, Grunt went to the Bridge almost 11 weeks ago and I am still not used to his absence.  Each day is painfully empty.  We love our babies so much, they are such a vital part of our lives, and when they are gone, it hurts.  Let the tears come, and know that your baby Sunny is in your heart always.

Sending my deepest sympathy, and hugs,
Katharine, Grunt's Mom Forever

Dear zenbabe33,

I am so very sorry for your loss of little Sunny.  This kind of pain is hard to deal with, but you've come to the right place, here, for some comfort.  Please know that all of us will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and know, and understand, your heartache.  It does get better with time, although for months I did not really believe that... it's been over one year for me, and although I miss my girl with all of my heart, every day, the pain has gotten a bit better to handle. 

I am so sorry.  I will keep Sunny in my thoughts, and will ask my Molly to welcome her to the bridge, along with all of our babies that are there.  He is in very good company.

I'm sorry for your loss, especially it was so sudden.  My kitty, Bella, passed away yesterday and I am still crying just thinking about her.  I also adopted her from a shelter and just felt so responsible for her life.  Sunny and Bella are probably keeping each other company since they passed together.  We just get so attached to our pets, it is hard to think of them as leaving.

I hope Sunny added as much joy to your life as Bella added to mine.

Take care,

zenbabe, I am so very sorry.  It is simply devastating to lose our beloved animals. The hurt is just beyond anything one could imagine.  You should come here and talk as much as you need because it is a very good place with peoplewho know exactly how you feel.  Again I am so very sorry.

Dear Susan,
I know how heart broken you must be.
Sunny sounds like a wonderful friend and when we lose our best friend it hurts beyond anything we ever imagined.
Sunny was so happy in your home and you took him from a place where he had no life and gave him a life he would have not had if not for your love and caring.
For that he is eternally grateful and he will watch over you as your guardian angel from Rainbow Bridge forever.
I so wish that I could take your pain away but sadly there are no words of comfort that can do that.
What I can tell you is that you have to give yourself time to grieve.
At first you will need to just let the tears flow and take life one moment at a time.
Don't be afraid to just cry because tears do help to wash away some of the pain.
Allow yourself to simply feel.
There is no time limit on grief and no set pattern.
There are many stages of grief but they don't all fall in the same order for everyone.
Just let the feelings flow and allow yourself all the time you need.
You must have so many wonderful memories with Sunny and I promise that one day all of those good memories will help you to smile again.
Right now they may seem painful but the very memories that hurt so much to think of now will one day be what helps your broken heart to heal.
Life does come full circle and one day you will see your beloved Sunny again.
On that wonderful day when it's your time to leave this world Sunny will be the one to run to greet you.
He will run to your waiting arms and you will never be apart again.
I am glad you found us here and please know that there are many loving caring people here who will help you every step of the way.
Each one here has felt the pain you now feel and we understand it well.
No one ever has to walk this path alone for there will always be people here to walk beside you.
May you find peace and comfort.
Love and Peace,

Oh I'm so so sorry.  Sunny does sound like such a special little soul.  It's so hard when we lose our pets, and tragic losses like that of Sunny make it so much harder.  Please know that your baby is at peace.  She's happy and whole at the bridge and has many friends there.  She's your baby forever and she'll be with you always in spirit. I know that's not very comforting hearing that right now, but I hope it helps even a little bit.  I can sense your pain and I'm just so sorry. This is a wonderful place to come and just "let it out."  We've all been down that dark path you're on and we've all felt your pain - we understand.  You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  May God hold you in his arms and bring you hope and peace. 

Big hugs to you.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain you are going through right now. Life can be so unfair sometimes. I understand how you feel like you expect to see Sunny still there. I recently lost my dear cat and I still think I can hear her in the next room sometimes. Then I remember and it hits me like a ton of bricks. Please try your best to get through the days, that is all you can do now. Cry when you need to, do not try to stop the tears just let them come. We are here for you when you need to talk.

I am so sorry for your loss.  Sunny sounds like he was a very special and loved furchild.  It's hard enough when we lose then when they're old and sick I can only imagine how even more difficult it is when it is so sudden and enexpected.  You have come to the right place because we are all going through the same losses in our lives and want to be here for you.

I am so terribly sorry to hear about Sunny.  How tragic for you.  The loss of our furbabies is never easy.  I lost my Bosco unexpectedly as well about a month ago.  The shock is tremendous and I still feel as if he's staying with someone and he'll be home any moment.  But as much as it hurts...and it will hurt, as much as I wanted to kill every person that said this to me: "it will take time", they were so right.  You will get through this but never get over it.

I'd like to suggest some books for you.  Animals in Spirit by Penelope Smith and Animals and the Afterlife by Kim Sheridan.  Both are amazing and brought me some comfort.  Maybe they will do the same for you.

Please know you're not alone.  Thank god for this site and all of the wonderful souls on it.

Bless you and Sunny.

Dearest Susan

I am so terribly sorry for the tragic loss of your Sunny.  I know you loved him very much.  I wish I had some magic words to take away your pain, but there just aren't any. 

You gave your Sunny such a wonderful life.  He had two wonderful years filled with your love.  I know that isn't long enough, but without you he may have never known such love.  Sunny will always be with you and will hold a special place in your heart. 

I pray you find peace and comfort

Dear Susan,

I am so sorry about your precious Sunny. While I can offer no advise or words of wisdom right now, please know you are not alone. I lost my Otis just a week ago, so I'm feeling much of what you are...and having much of the same difficulties as well. Somehow, we will get through this, and this pain, which now seems so unmanageable, will get easier. I'm looking forward to the day that I can think of Otis and not cry but actually smile. I look forward to that day for you too.

You and Sunny are in my prayers...
