I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost our Maggie, not a Golden, last August, actually I believe it was July 31st. but at this point I still do not want to know the exact date and am happy not remembering it. We stayed with Maggie till she left us for the Bridge, telling her how much we loved her and that we would be ok.

Run free are in good company!

thanks Laura, Claudia, Kwhit & Holdaisy for your kind words. That is true Bentley's Mom, deep love does mean deep pain but I am working through it. Thanks Goldensmum for what you said about us taking their pain. that seemed to help me understand what I did and why it hurts so bad. Your welcome Oakley& Segers Mom, I am glad I could help you and Mayve, I am sorry for your loss. My wife and I are doing ok and taking it day by day. we did have a small breakdown last night when my 4 year old golden started walking around the house looking for Sadie. So my fix is I am trying to keep his life somewhat normal and we have taken 3 walks and been to the park in the past 2 days. even though those were things that we used to do with her, I figure we have to do them sooner or later so we might as well start doing them now and he seemed ok with that. I knew I was lonely and the house was too quiet but I forgot how it must have affected him because as I told my wife, "you were gone and I was gone but she was with him all the time". Then this morning, my wife said "I guess we could start looking for a little sister for him, because I don't want him to be lonely". Whether it was for him or her, I am on board with it because I know that after a while of mourning, I too will want to go on and remember that life indeed does go on and nothing reminds you of that more than a new puppy. Reading your comments and writing in this forum helps me so thank you all for that.

My wife started crying right there but I told her we need to take the time we have left and celebrate her life with us. As it turned out, it was two weeks. These last two weeks have been filled with walks in the park, trips to petsmart, a bath, and even professional pictures made, in what turned out to be her last good day with beautiful weather. Sadie was such a good girl and she loved every minute of it and didn't even slow down until two days before she departed. I used that time to say goodbye so when the time came I gave her some sweet kisses and told her to go and join her brother, Cali, that she lost 4 years ago at the bridge. my wife could not leave her all alone and was receiving kisses as she faded away. It can not get more heartbreaking or sweeter than that. I will miss her dearly but I am content in the fact that she loved us, loved living here with us and had a wonderful life. How can you not be at peace with that? I am glad you all are here so we don't have to go through this alone. any comments or questions would be appreciated.

I am so very sorry about your sweet Sadie!! Please tell your wife for me.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Sadie. I know we were in a fog for a long while after our Buddy died. We still miss him terribly. This is the first time in many, many years that we have not had a pet in our home. The comfort you must have, as we did; is your Sadie and our Buddy were very much loved and cherished, and they had a good life. And for that we can be thankful. Peace and Hugs to you and your wife.

I am very sorry for your loss of sweet Sadie. I lost my heart and soul, my Buddy, 19 months ago, never stop missing him and thinking of him.
