  1. Thanks Kayc for your as ever comforting kind words and no doubt this forum has also given me comfort knowing the we are all experiencing the loss of our beloved pets. Love to you all❤️ Frankie
  2. I feel your loss as we all do and my he his a cutey.April 27th will be exactly one year since i held my Coco’s head in my arms for the last time and just today I had a good sob and yes while the tears have lessened the pain has not.I close my eyes at night and I fall asleep with him by my side then I wake up just to emptiness but I try to remind myself that he’s no longer suffering although the guilt I have is still with me as I didn’t know that he had heart disease when he used to just lie down on our walks in his last 2yrs.I’ve had colleagues say to me surely you’re over the loss by now so s
  3. We never get over grief but we learn to live with it.8 months since my Coco passed but without sounding like a parrot every time I post but for me personally the grief is still so intense day after day.I come in and he’s not waiting for me at the door,I long to hear his feet on the wooden floor,I miss his yelping while he’s dreaming,I miss him waking me up wanting his breakfast then his daily walk,I miss drying him down when we’ve both got soaking wet but most of all I miss his cuddles and the undying love that he had for me and I had for him.Love and good health to you all❤️ Frankie
  4. Hi Agemgem.My heart goes out to you for the loss of your beloved dog.You’ve done the right thing by coming on this wonderful website where we all know what you are going through.Hell it’s 8mths since my boy left me and I’ve cried every single day and I was very nearly contemplating joining him as I was in a dark place and still am to some extent.I knew my Coco’s end was near so the sudden loss of your dog must be that much greater and you are right when you say many people mainly non pet owners may I add will never understand the grief over losing any pet.I cannot even have all my memorial mem
  5. Wow I agree with Kayc that has had me crying my eyes out as nearly everything you have described are the exactly same feelings as I’ve had and it’s very evident your love for Daisy is there for all to see + I know it’s probably no consolation but 14yrs is a great age.7 months since my boy passed + not a day goes by when I don’t think of him + I still cannot look at pictures + videos of him as it’s still very painful.The emptiness of the house is the worst aspect of losing him even though I’ve adopted one of the neighbours cats but she somehow senses when I’m feeling very down as she comes stra
  6. Thanks Kayc .+ to all of my fellow pet lovers who have replied so beautifully to this topic and this website has been a godsend knowing that we are all suffering in one way or another be it a human or a pet loss so for me it is comforting to know every single one of us knows what each of us is experiencing.Stay safe all in these weirdest of times. Frankie xx
  7. Thanks Michele + Gracie for your kind words.As a matter of fact he hated the beach as there was nothing for him to smell + lick so I think deep down he was a park dog + he only paddled in the water as he was quite wary.I wrote a long poem just after he’d passed which I now have framed so I will try to put it on here in the next few weeks.Oh what a horrible year to forget as we in the UK have gone back into a very strong lockdown as no socialising or seeing family is now banned so these dark cold nights are going to be even harder to bear + the thought of not seeing him rip open him presents on
  8. Six months today You finally slipped away Not a day has gone by When I haven’t had a cry How they flew by All those years Now only memories Filled with my tears When I close my eyes You are running free Oh how I wish That it could be you and me I know deep down in my heart That can never be So Coco my beautiful boy It’s time for you to run free My life is a darker place without you.Love you forever Coco❤️
  9. Paula I certainly know where you are coming from as what you have wrote could have been written by me and probably many others off here so you are not alone in having those feelings.Nearly six months for me but my the pain and sadness is still with me most days.In fact just before writing this I decided to look at the many phone pics I have of him but I still cannot look at them without crying but by doing this I hope it will get easier for me but it’s no exaggeration that my grief has been immense on my mental health,so much so that I still have dark thoughts although these are less frequent
  10. I’m so sorry for your loss and what a beauty he is.You’ve taken the first step in your grieving process by coming on here as it has greatly helped me and I’m sure most people on here come to terms with our losses.You did your best and you should remember even though it’s no consolation right now the 6yrs you had together.We or I did take their lives for granted thinking they will never get sick and live forever as in reality compared to our own theirs to us is a short existence but you should feel no guilt whatsoever.Let the tears flow and all your emotions out as often as you like as speaking
  11. My heart goes out to you on your loss and you’ve prob heard this many times already but 21yrs is some longevity but 1yr or 21 the grief is still the same and an empty bed at night is something I’ve not yet got used to although one of the neighbours cats is still preferring to stay with me rather than her own home but as I’ve already posted I still tend to cry a lot so maybe she can sense my grief and pain or she just likes a quiet house as the neighbour has young children.Either way she’s company especially as we’ve gone into yet another lockdown which makes the loss of my boy even harder to t
  12. Gracie,Kayc + Michelle thank you for your lovely replies + as already been stated it’s comforting to know that we can come on this great site to express how we are feeling as well as giving each other support even more so now the dark cold days (UK) are quickly approaching which I absolutely dread and Michelle my heart goes out to you in what must be a year for you to forget + Roxie is a little beauty.Prayers to you all + I hope everyone stays heathy in mind + body in these craziest of times. Frankie xx
  13. Hi fellow pet lovers.Hope everyone is bearing up with the loss of our beautiful fur babies in these most horrible of times.Some truly heartbreaking posts I’ve read on this site which I’m not sure if that’s a good thing as I always end up in tears so I know where you are all coming from as 5 months on I still can’t come to terms my boy has gone for ever and after a brief respite the past week has put me back emotionally to the first week he left this world and this second lockdown what parts of the UK are going through is not helping my mental health so safe to say I just want this year go as q
  14. Is it wrong to love an animal more than a human?I certainly don’t think so as I’ve had many friends and family members die but I can freely admit and I hope this does not sound heartless but I have not grieved nowhere near as much as what I have for my Coco and that does not give me any guilty feelings whatsoever.They want for nothing but food,love and exercise and that love what is given back to us is unconditional.I hope everyone is bearing up and staying safe and healthy in these horrible of times. Frankie xx
  15. I’m with you Dogmom regarding mornings and like yourself I can’t help but thinking of my Coco’s last months of suffering not to mention the haunting image of me leaving him on the vets floor after he’’d passed.Oh how I now wished I’d have stayed and held him in my arms a little longer.4 months for me and my grief still consumes my every waking day and even now I cannot look at any photos or videos of him as that is just too painful.Prayers and good health to you all in these strangest of times Frankie xx
