I wish there was some way to help you through this but the deep sorrow you feel is because of the deep loved you shared with Tesia. Through your stories you brought her into our lives so we could all love her.

You two are an inspiration and were so brave though it all. Just know how many hearts are with you during the difficult days ahead.

..... have a Golden day

Anyone who has ever loved and lost a dog will relate to your loving, heartfelt post about Tesia. I cried when I read it because it brought back all the same feelings, hurt, and overwhelming sadness I felt when my dog died. Time will help heal your heart, you take it one day at a time. There's no need to rush putting her things away, if it comforts you, leave them right where they are. I know this is so hard, so many of us have been there and know the pain. Through your loving words and stories, we all got to know and love Tesia. She will not be forgotten. She was loved here on earth, and she is surely loved in heaven!

When my King died he first went to an Emergency Vet where we were together all night. In the morning we needed to transport my lovely boy to his regular vet. The blankie they used for the gurney to bring him to my Pathfinder went unwashed for months so I could still smell my boy - my Pathfinder went way too long as my car since he took his final ride in it. His bowls, toys, leashes etc I still have. I finally boxed his ribbons and trophies years after he had to leave.

I still have locks of hair, collars and special toys from King & Rowdy.

Take your time and hold on to Tesia's worldly things as long as you like. The comfort they can bring are priceless.

How can I go back to normal when nothing will be normal again?

I'm thinking of you as well, I'm at the same place, the hurt is unbearable, sometimes I feel like I can't breathe...I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have Neeko, he helps keep me going,....I will keep you in my prayers, hoping the pain gets easier.....take care.....

It took me over 2 years to be able to talk about Copper without crying. Join the club of marshmallows, but it truly means you and Tesia shared a deep, deep love.

We spend so much of our lives with our dogs that their loss reflects on our lives every moment of our day.

"Through your loving words and stories, we all got to know and love Tesia. " That is so true - her smiling face gave me many, many smiles over the time we shared. I wish we had forever together.

I still have Allie's blanket. Unwashed and her hair is on it. Don't know when or if I can ever wash it. It is the hardest loss I have ever had in my life and I have had many. I know how you feel. I still find it hard to go on day to day. My world just doesn't feel normal anymore without Allie. I try to focus on how much she gave me and how blessed I was to have her. Still the loss is unbearable at times. Your girl had a wonderful life with you and you were a GREAT mom to her. She knew what it felt like to be totally loved. Be good to yourself during this oh so difficult time. Tesia would want that for her mom. Hugs
