  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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❤️
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. I know what you mean about the lonely nights.The worst time of the day for me without doubt and dreading winter setting in.I still work so daytime is not to bad then I try keep busy when I finish either going for a run,the gym or just a walk as the doctors say the stress of losing him has caused my chest pain symptoms but I still get days four months on when I’m overcome with emotion thinking about him.Just find it so hard to accept I’ll never see him again.Sending hugs Frankie
  12. So sorry for your loss and she’s beautiful by the way.There are probably no words I can say that will ease your pain but it’s only natural you are blaming your partner for the tragic accident as that is what it was and I’m sure he is hurting inside just as much as you are as well as feeling a tremendous amount of guilt.Life is full of if’s,why’s and but’s and with hindsight in everything we do life would be perfect.You should cherish the amazing 16yrs of memories you had with each other that’s something nobody can ever take away from you and can I suggest you make a shrine of the like what I’v
  13. Kayc,MartyT,Dogmom + Archie11 sending love and hugs to you all that are hurting with the loss of our beloved pets be it weeks,months or years ago and Dogmom I’m with you as regards to your tears.Nearly 16 weeks since my boy passed and not a day as gone by without me crying a couple times a day and more so now as I’m now using the same sayings to the neighbours cat that I used for my Coco.I keep waiting for just one day that I’m free from the tears but that seems a very long way off.The saying that the grief will never go away we just learn to manage it I hope is true. Frankie xx
  14. Very wise words MartyT.Thank you.
  15. Yes Marty I saw a programme about that cat many years ago.I hope this one hasn’t come to predict my passing😊I don’t let it sleep here as I’m still unsure who’s cat it is and they might be looking for it but this I doubt as it doesn’t seem as though it’s being fed as it didn’t half gobble up the plate of Whiskas I put down for it but there’s a feeling in me that I’m now betraying my boys memory so my mind is being pulled one way then the other as what to do about it.Keep my doors open for it or just ignore it which would make me a very heartless person which I am not.Thoughts.
