Please take comfort in knowing Wolf recognized heaven when he arrived because you'd shown him what it looked and felt like.

I don't think I could say it better. Thinking of you and your sweetness. gsdhalo Run free Wolf.

It's been six months since Wolf died. The big lesson living with Wolf taught me was to pay attention to this very moment and I really do try to apply it, a little anyway. So that's good.

What isn't good is my ceaseless mourning. I feel like part of me is missing, sort of like a phantom limb that hurts although it's gone. In my strange way of thinking, I would rather hurt than lose the real sense of my dear dog. Do you remember Healthcliff saying "Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!" It's something like that.

Precious lamb, don't ever leave me.

Thanks for reading and thanks for all the support you have shown.
Mary Jane

hugging It does get easier with time.

All of mine are still with me in one way or another. I often saw pieces of my boy Max in Aodhán, even with totally different personalities. And I see parts of Rica and Kelly in Caleb.

RIP Aodhán, Rica, Max, Kelly - gone but never forgotten - forever in my heart

Oh Mary Jane hugging I know exactly how you feel. Now past our year of firsts here, I have lost more of her, but am learning how to keep the special parts of her with me. That deep hole fills with something less tangible, but it still fills with love and energy.

They NEVER leave us entirely, and we do honor them by using what they teach us.

What a wonderful picture of you two, on a beautiful day wub

hugging There have been some terrible and sad losses in the past year.

I have been where you are and I sometimes feel grief like it was yesterday. But all in all the good memories, the funny memories begin to take over.

I wish for all of you that peace is found.

Beyond precious, beyond magickal, beyond beautiful. Wolf, and your relationship with him was, and continues forever to be, a loving miracle that sustains you both. When someone transforms (passes on), the love does not die. It too, merely changes form a bit. Nothing changes the realness of such a true and deep mutual love.

Mary Jane, I wish you a measure of comfort and warmth and peace as you continue to gently heal. Your dear gentle lamb is keeping watch.. for always. gsdhalo

I met Wolf right after he got out of the shelter. We were all stunned by his physical beauty but what really struck me was his level of confusion, and looking so lost in the world. My heart breaks for you, but at the same time, I have some joy in knowing that this dog was able to go from being afraid to making a connection with people and not really knowing how to, to having made one so deep that he is missed so much. Look at you both in that photo. Magical.

I am very sorry, and agree that keeping them close in heart is our tribute to them. Over time the pain in our heart is replaced with happier memories, but sometimes the loss comes back to remind us of how much they meant to us.
