Three weeks ago today I took Nora to the vet because she suddenly became so very sick. Three weeks ago tomorrow, Nora passed on and began her journey to Rainbow Bridge. I have never felt this much pain or sorrow. I have never felt so hopelessly lost. I thank you all who have replied to my original thread and I thank all of you who's own stories have been so lovingly shared. Being able to come here and read, write, and bare my soul has helped me through the saddest event of my life. I read something today that is so sad, but true, "It has been said that our joy can only be as high as our pain is deep". I loved ( and love ) Nora more than words can possibly say.
I feel like Nora smiled down on me this past weekend as my husband and I adopted a very handsome and ridiculously loving 5 year old Corgi named Sammy. I drove down to Los Angeles on Friday, stayed the night, and then drove home with him on Saturday. He is a love bug and has the most beautiful brown eyes. He follows me everywhere and is now sleeping peacefully at my feet. I knew when I went to get him that he could not replace Nora and that he would be very much his own dog, but I also truly believe that Nora would not want us to be alone. I have asked her to help look after him and let him know that things are going to be okay. I hope that she visits him peacefully in his dreams. He is our ray of sunshine in this sorrowful fog. Peace to all of you on this Candle Ceremony night. I pray that all of our beloved fur babies are warm and content. Heather

Sammy sounds like a real love bug! Congratulations on your new arrival. Nora is happy that Sammy has found a wonderful new home filled with love. Corgis are very cute dogs and I hope you share many years together. Sure would love to see a picture of the little rascal.

Heather, congrats on your new baby! Nothing heals the heart faster than a cold nose.

I'm so happy for you. I think it's a very good idea to adopt a 5yr old because his attitudes and behaviour will be more in keeping with what you are accustomed to. Not that there is a thing wrong with adopting a pup, many on here have done that to experience puppyhood all over again. But it sounds like this peaceful little guy is just what you need right now. I think that all of our fur babies are definitely content and probably amazed that they have caused such a ruckus here on earth just for straying a little, for what seems to them, just a few steps ahead of us.
