How Do You Mend A Broken Heart....................

It has been a little over a week since Ed passed away.  I really miss him.  It's not like I have not lost a pet before, he was the 5th.  But I just can't believe I won't ever see him or hug him again.  What is it about this dog, what is it about any dog?

He turned me into a complete blubbering fool last Monday when I went into work.  Luckily I have a boss who is a big dog person and understood completely.

As I was cleaning this weekend I was reluctant to vacuum, his fur and smell would be gone silly is that!  I thought I could pick up his food bowl and put it away but I'm not ready yet.  I found his favorite sits here on my desk.

I'm not ready to let go......not yet.

I miss you Eddie.......(this was his very last photo....taken just a few hours before.  Who knew.... ).

No,  I'm not ready yet.


  1. It's been 7 and a half months since Simon died and I still long to see him again. My grief has mainly turned into fond memories, but there are still raw spots even now. I think your reluctance to let go of your sweet boy is a sign of how much you loved him and what a prominent role he had in your life. Take your time - you will heal at your own speed.

  2. I miss my kitty's fur - our other cat won't sit in "his" chair. I miss his smell and his crankiness (not his midnight yowlings, though). It's so hard to believe we won't ever kiss their little heads again. Don't give up everything - keep the memories.
