I am so thankful for having the opportunity to talk to such caring people. It is so hard to read the stories each day but I try to add some words of peace along with everyone. After I read the stories I say prayers for all the pets and their Moms and Dads. I wrote yesterday about my sweetheart Meister and I thank everyone for taking the time to talk to me again. I may be writing too much but I feel I have to. It was 2 weeks ago today we lost our Meister. Some days the pain is worse than the day before. I have a garden in the back with a bench and a small stone wall. Everyday I go out in the morning and place 2 roses for him about the time I would first take him out. Today I went out at 7:45 in memory of his last hour with us. I loved him so much. My heart and home are still so empty. Little things are constantly in my mind. One is that my husband would come home everyday and say "Hi Dog", How's my little buddy and take him outside with him. I have tried to change some of our routines that we shared with him because of the pain. I know he was 17 but I will always think I could have done more for him. I know I could not have loved him more though. I am not asking for anything except for some to read this in remembering my good little boy Meister. Thank you again. Meisters Mom and Dad

I think roses are such a wonderful way to honor Meister. What a beautiful tribute. We just passed our 2 week marker with Zoe - it's been 16 days now. I've cried everyday but I'm trying hard to work through the grief.
You are not writing too much - do whatever helps you to get through this. I'm sure Meister will guide you and give you strength during those times when you need it most. I'll be thinking of you and your husband today.

I am sorry for the loss of your precious angel Meister. I find it very helpful to come here and post messages about my cat Cheeseburger who passed away on May 4th 2008. This is what this site is all about - people caring and understanding. We are all going through the pain, tears and heartache. I think placing roses is such a beautiful loving tribute to your Meister. He knows how much you love him. The years we have with our babies are all too few - but I am thankful my little boy Cheeseburger was in my life - he shared my heart for 10 years and gave me so much love and happiness. The love from these babies is so unconditional and pure, that it is in our hearts forever, as are the cherished memories we have of them. I hope in time you will be able to find some peace and comfort in those memories of Meister too. "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."

I am so sorry for your loss of Meister. If there was something I could say to you to make this pain better I would;unfortunately I have found nothing that helps. There is no such thing as writing too much on this site; we are all here to help each other and writing is so helpful with the grief process. We all understand this horrible pain. Christopher has been gone for 15 months today. The pain is as overwhelming today as it was the day he left. Some days are better than others, but the grief is always present. I too questioned if I had done enough for Christopher; I think that we all have done as much to save our babies as is humanly possible. This overwhelming pain comes from that "Special Bond" we had with our babies. I have lost many pets and have loved them all with all my heart, but the grief has never been like it has since losing Christopher. I will miss him forever. The tears still fall every day and I imagine they will until he is in my arms again. I just wanted you to know that I am Praying for you and Meister. I would never have survived Christopher's loss had it not been for the amazing people on this site. My Petloss family means the world to me. I know that Christopher and all our babies will take care of Meister for you. We are all here when you need us. Sending Prayers and Big Hugs Your Way Georgeann and Christopher Forever

What a sweet post, and a loving tribute to your little guy Meister. He was much loved, that is very apparent in every word you write. Two weeks after such a devastating loss is just a drop in the bucket in the mourning process. Everything still feels so raw, and unreal. I remember all too well. Writing about our precious fur babies is so helpful, I love to see my Nike's name on the screen, and sharing her with all of you makes me feel she is close by. Just like your little boy will become familiar to all of us...continue sharing his stories, write them down as you remember them, may the memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. Hugs from Houston, MsSavion

Dear Mary, I am so glad that you found this message board. Your sweet Meister must have brought you so much joy in his time with you. No matter how long they are with us it is never long enough. The pain is so great when we have to say goodbye to them but in time it does ease a bit although at first it seems as though it never will. We never stop missing them. We just eventually accept the fact that we have to go on without them beside us but we also have to remember that they are never far from us because they live on in our hearts. They watch over us from Rainbow Bridge as our guardian angels. One day we will be together again. I love the idea of the roses and am leaving some roses here for your baby, Meister. May you find peace and comfort as you place those roses each day knowing that he is watching and smiling down on you. Love and Peace, AurichWolf Kathy

He knows how much his mom and dad loved him as he did the both of you. It is hard I know, especially about the emptiness within but also in the home. That is the one thing that has been the hardest for me to cope with, the empty house, since Peach made her journey over a month ago. You and yours are in my prayers each night as I say them over Peache's resting spot along with so many others who have gone through and may be about to go through what we here have. God Bless and peace and comfort to you and yours during this trying time.----------Jerry in Oklahoma.
