    You passed away today.
    Instinctively as i walked into the kitchen i called to you.
    But there was no pattering of the feet, no bark. Just silence.
    I choked on the air, as i thought of what had happened to you a few hours ago.
    I still wonder why you wandered up to the highway, you never did that.
    Everyone searched for you.
    I heard a whimper at the side of he road where you'd buried yourself in the long grass. I almost laughed thinking it was your back legs playing tricks on you again. As i got nearer it just wasn't that. I held you for a long time before you left, and as i did, i hugged you for the last time knowing nothing would be the same.

    See you around Timtamtom.

    Very sorry for your loss.

    Unfortunately, many of us can relate. I lost my springer spaniel from an aneurism. He was only 3.

    grieving is grieving whether it is for another human or a dearly loved pet.

    Bless your heart ...:hug::

    Thank you all for your sentiments, it was a family pet, so sadly its not just me feeling the loss.
    Today, i'm smiling though, because i got some amazing memories of the crazy pup, and happy he was part of all our lives.
    You all are so sweet, thank you again :hug::

    There's something to be said about the unconditional love that a pet can give you, especially a dog.

    My advice is to go get another one. Not to replace, but to fill the whole in your heart with more unconditional love.
