February 19, 2014. Tuffy , it was your last day on this Earth.  It was the worst day of my life.  The worst time of my life.  Soul crushing physical pain.   You passed 11 months after my Mom, who passed 10 months after my Dad.  So I was no stranger to grief and loss, and both losses were my worst until you ..

You were my heart dog. I knew losing you would be hard, but it was much harder than imagined. So totally worth it!   The price we pay for love is grief.

You taught me so much, unconditional love and automatic forgiveness. I miss you daily, having you wake me up to chase a ball, or remind me it is almost 5am and time for our walk ... (hmm, I still miss you lol).

So many words I have spoken and written to you and about you, and so many tears I've shed.   A wonderful surprise was that I did get some new memories even after you passed.  Memories of your so real visits in my dreams.  It would be nice to have one again, but I understand the need isn't there any more .. I survived and learned to love another pup or two. tell Mom "Tuffy would give his life for me."  

I loved Toby with all my heart, and love Ellie and Missy with all my heart.  But you were my first, you picked me to be your Dad!  That was a great honour and I did the best I could for you every day of our wonderful 13 years and 10 months together.  It's never enough, but it was a blessing to be together that long.  And it ain't over yet .. we will meet again and the tears will flow as they often have these past years.

Love never dies and your passing did not truly separate us.  Spirits linke together through eterning, and love.  Until we meet again my number one Son!

Take good care of Toby. My posse, Tuffy and Toby. [2764]

Love you little buddy, always and forever. Until we meet again.

Dad

Happy 19th birthday Tuffy,

  I think of you daily at Rainbow Bridge.  Hope you are having fun, taking care of Toby, hanging with some of your buddies from your Earth days.  

  A part of me left with you, and a part of you stayed with me in my heart. 

  Love you forever, until we meet again.

  It's kind of strange to some, that 5 years later these days bring tears.  I miss you so much.  Ellie and Missy are wonderful and I love them.  

 But I still miss you and Toby. Every day.  

Love,
Dad

Hello Mondo,
your letter to Tuffy touched my heart so much. Grief is so very hard to deal with especially those very close to us as Tuffy was to you. It doesn't matter how much time goes by the hurt will always be felt as well as the emptiness. I still and will always grieve for my little Bella. I have my dog Benji now that I had for the past three + years and I love him dearly. He helped me with my grief and still does but of course nothing or nobody can take the hurt away. Hope all is well with you otherwise. kisses to Ellie and Missy. Hope all is well with them too. Angel hugs to Tuffy and Toby. Take care stay well.

Hi Donna,

  Nice to see a familiar name.  My goodness, tearing up here .. seems like only yesterday we were here, talking about Bella and Tuffy.  And in some ways, so very long ago.  

  Life goes on but it is never the same again.  As you with Benji, I love the girls with all  my heart. But still miss my boys, Tuffy and Toby.  Until we meet again.



Hugs,
Tuffy, Toby, Ellie and Missy's Dad
