I love that photo of little Tesia as a pup, it's so cute how your photo has captured her as the only pup looking at you too. It's clear that you two were meant to be together from the start. We have kept absolutely everything of Daisy's. Not one thing got thrown away. It took a very very long time before we could bear to move anything. Even her bed and water bowl stayed in the same spot for months. I have a shelf in a cupboard full of all her things and I get her box of toys out from time to time. I think it's a great idea that you're going to collect all of her tennis balls, she must have had hours of fun collecting them all and bringing them home! Please feel free to share any photos and stories of Tesia. She was loved on this forum and will always be remembered as such a brave and special girl and we would love to hear more about her.

What a beautiful photo of Tesia at 4 weeks looking at her future mom. And what an amazing mom you were to her.

I am so sad to hear about Tesia. We definitely know what you're going through and there is nothing to say to make it any easier. I hope Tesia has found my Mr. Bojangles and they are playing and keeping each other company.

Sweet Girl, I am sending you such a huge hug from the east coast... (((((((((HUG))))))))))))). Take your time- everyone grieves in a different way, for different lengths of time. And remember- some days will be better than others...

I lost my Sadie almost 9 YEARS ago to the day & I STILL get sad or even pissed off sometimes- especially if something reminds me of her. When she passed:

1. I didn't vacuum for the LONGEST time. I could have made a huge afghan with all of it. Even to this day, I check for her fur when I'm cleaning out the heating vents...

2. I left her poop (which was quite frozen) in the yard for such a long time! I was so worried someone would say something!

3. I left her noseprints on every window. They stayed on my dodge neon's windows until we sold her a year ago.

But now I can look back and (usually) smile at my memories of her, but it took a LOOOONG time. I think that talking and writing about her, and making a scrapbook of her life, donating her remaining meds, etc. really helped me out in my own grieving process/journey...

Keep writing about sweet, beautiful Tesia!!! I'll be thinking of you!!!

The picture of Tess looking at you with all the other dogs are sleeping is so precious...that was your moment with her...that she took your heart and would never give it back..

Hang in there..I wish I could tell you in 5 months it gets better...sometimes I think it has..but then the slightest thing will remind me of Sadie and I will start to tear up. I left all her toys around the house, left her feeder in place, didnt clean the last smudge marks from all the surfaces she liked to rub against..funny, when she was alive I was constantly cleaning that stuff..now I couldn't bring myself to do it. She passed on a Saturday morning..we used to go for a long walk everyday after I would get home from work. Once she got sick she was too weak to go, so I couldn't walk her for the last two months. The first Monday after I lost her I was so beside myself with grief when I got home I took her collar and wrapped it around my hand and I went on one last walk for her....tears streaming down my face the whole time. Just a week ago, the first time I took my new pups, Ben & Jeri for a walk down the same route Sadie and I took so many times, again I had tears in my eyes...

The enormous grief you feel today, is a measure of enormous the love you have for her, and always will...
