Keep posting!! This is what this section of the forum is for.

Have you ever thought that Charlie is Buddy? Millions of people in the world believe in reincarnation. Often people welcome another fur buddy into their life but the new dog does not behave the same way. They are not a replacement they are a different identity altogether. However your case seems different. Charlie does seem to follow in Buddy's foot steps. Could it be possible that Charlie has returned to you since you have been hurting so much? You have already seen many miracles take place. Charlie obviously cannot be exactly the same as his last form but he seems to be as close as he can. What IF Buddy is Charlie?

Buddy and Charlie want you to heal and be happy but you also need to give yourself permission for this. You do not need to let go of your love but do let go of the negative ties that bind you to that sad place because they do not belong to Buddy.
(Would you believe that I just typed Charlie instead of Buddy? LOL In this case maybe they are one in the same??)

Velinka, when I read your posts on this forum, I feel like you are looking into my heart and soul and I am sure others feel the same way. You express exactly what we feel and all too often many do not understand these feelings -- you do understand.
I had to smile when you mentioned Buddy and Charlie lying at your feet when you wash dishes because my Mikey used to do the same thing.
I also wanted to let you know that Harley's dosage of Prednisone has been reduced to half of what he started on and last night I began to see a little of him coming back. He is very sick and I know I cannot make the lung tumors go away but at least to see him more comfortable makes me feel better.
Buddy's first New Year in a couple of days!

Velinka, We all appreciate your caring support, and very acute insight into what we are all feeling. I mostly post here in this forum because my Buddy's loss is where it led me. I still need this forum to remind me I am not alone with my sadness, and it helps that you and others truly understand. We are all so happy you have little Charlie, and for me, gives me hope that if my circumstances change; someday I can again welcome a new puppy, or rescue, or a shelter dog that needs a good loving home. Having Charlie in no way diminishes your love, loyalty, or memories of Buddy. Charlie simply expands your circle of love. Life goes on, but so does love....for the ones still here, and most certainly for those at the heavenly "Bridge"!

Hey my Bud, long time no talk! I feel selfish that I do not have time to wish sweet Molly happy 1st birthday, to say a word to Andy, Tesia and Tia how sorry I am that they do not feel well. To say I am thinking of Harley, Bridget and all other cancer patients. To say I am sorry for Toby not feeling well and how sweet little Yogi and Abbey are. To say how sorry I am to those new members for their loss of loved ones. I am thinking of all I mentioned and those I did not and sending my prayers and positive vibes for them every day. But I have to stop by to talk to you, to tell you how much I love you and miss you. Daddy and your sister got new cell phones and are taking many pictures of little Charlie. Daddy showed me slide show he made. I did not want new phone I said I am ok with old one, do not use it so much anyway. I did not tell them that old one have pictures of you and if I buy new one I wont be able to take your pictures and it hurts, I cant imagine not be able to do that. I talk to you every day but so many times I feel it is not enough, I still want more. Little Charlie meet all our neighbors when we go for walks. They say you have a new dog, I know they do not mean it in bad way but it hurts me, I feel like I gave up on you to have a new one and I would never do that. I love you and miss you, some days it still hurts a lot. Today is one of those days I cried couple times. Maybe because little Charlie was so cuddly this morning, he usually does not have time for that. He found some of your toys and he loves to play with them. It reminds me of you, how happy you were playing around. Little Charlie is waking up, I got to go. Just let you know love you and miss you a lot. Sending hugs and kisses,
Your mom forever.

You didn't give up on Buddy. You honored him by opening your heart to another loving pup, who will never replace Buddy or even close the hole that will forever be the place that holds Buddy. Charlie is an addition, not an "instead of". V, go enjoy little Charlie's antics and smile, remembering all that Buddy taught you about love.

Right there with you...Even though it gets somewhat easier as time goes by, that lingering sadness of what we lost is always there. As time goes on, and little Charlie matures, your bond with him will continue to grow and fill your heart. My sister-in-law's father died this week. He was 89 years old, and was married to his wife for 69 years, and together for 72 yrs!! She told me at the church, that their lives and hearts were one, just like the day they were married. And the love they shared goes on and never dies, and will come full circle again when it is HER time to go. She is at peace with knowing they will be together again, and that time will be for eternity. And that is what "Love" is all about.
