Still Missing My Fozzie Bear

Well, it's officially been 4 months today since Fozzie went to the Rainbow Bridge. Our house is way too quiet, and I still miss him like crazy! I'm not crying nearly as much as I was, but it still seems like yesterday that he was hauling a couple of tennis balls up to the landing to send down to us. I am not looking forward to Christmas, as a big part of our morning was always watching him tear open his presents and laughing at his reaction once he got the toy out of the package. I know he's playing with all of his other golden friends at the Bridge, but I hope he sends us some guidance as to his future little brother or sister.

Thinking of you and we know exactly how you feel missing Fozzie. We're also not looking forward to Christmas much in this house either, Daisy loved opening presents the same as your beautiful Fozzie. The last Christmas was just horrible aswell with her being in the hospital and them telling us on Christmas day that there was nothing else that could be done to help her. I hope our 2 goldies have lots of presents to open up at the bridge!

I'm glad that time is helping you heal a little. That feeling of an empty house is the same here too. Hang in there, Fozzie will definitely guide you when the time is right for another golden and he is always watching over you.

I know how you are feeling and my heart goes out to you. We also just passed our 4 month mark and it still seems like yesterday my boy was with us. Even though my tears now only occasionally come, my heart is still heavy and empty without him. We are planning on a spring pup and we know that our new little future addition will give us a another chance to love a Golden just as we did our Rhett.

I know exactly how you feel. It's been just a month since Mick went to the Bridge. For the most part I'm okay but there are times it just grabs me.
The upcoming holidays are something I am not looking forward to. I don't have any family and Mick and I would just celebrate with each other. I'm of Russian descent so we used to celebrate both Dec. 25 and Jan. 07. It's rough to think he won't be around to rip open all his presents. I used to rub beef bouillon on the wrapping paper and he would go nuts. Running around with the paper then the toy. Good times. I'm glad I have them. I just hope Mick has the same memories up at the Bridge.

Sadly I am joining the group missing my Buddy 18 months tomorrow, second Christmas without him is coming. We celebrate two Christmases too and would keep presents away from the Christmas tree, they were not safe there, my Bud was never patient enough to wait with opening presents. Last year we went away, couldn't stand to spend holidays in the house. This year a pup is going to be with us so no run away is possible. I do not believe it will be easier. My Bud's birthday is coming next week too, I know it is going to be hard with all these special dates in a row without the most special one. Hugs to you all.

Fozzie Bear

I know exactly how you feel.

Christmas 2010 was our first Christmas without our Snobear and Smooch.

I'm sure Fozzie Bear is watching over you and he will help you pick out a boy or girl!

I'm so sorry. I like many can totally feel your pain. It will be 4 months for us tomorrow as well. It really feels like nothing will ever be okay again. Keeping you in our thoughts on another sad anniversary.

I am so sorry for your loss of Fozzie. I understand how hard this time of the year can be. I lost my Buddy just before Thanksgiving last year, and remember how different the time was without him. I hope that you find peace in your wonderful memories together, and allow your sweet boy to guide you in all that you do. xoxo Patrice

I am so sorry for your loss!!! I know that there are no words to express that sad feelings but i can talk with my heart and I know you will receive me directly from... my heart.
All I can say is that I know, I know your feelings...

They are such a wonderful beings, with such a good hearts and souls that the idea of passing over to something "next" seems to be impossible and unbearable.
They mean a world to us, they give us everything the best like: loyalty, unconditional love, complete devotion...everlasting forgiveness, perfect friendship, perfect...everything!!! They are PERFECT!!! When we lose them we lose something that was perfect and it is so unacceptable.

We mean the WORLD TO THEM. They have no family except us, no better friends , no better place to go (if it is without us). We are the center of their world.
The only thing we can do from now on is to understand that(above) even better and to LOVE THEM, not more, but as they deserve: COMPLETELY! and just...go with the flow...enjoying every second with them in the name of CARPE DIEM !!!

someone said once: Don't cry because it's over, SMILE because it HAPPENED!

Love & Light
sending you a wonderful french song to warm your heart

These are the words of a song: SOIS TRANQUILLE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07IV...eature=related
Be confident

I know the pain , I know the cries & the thoughts
That words can't cure
I know the absence , I know the lack & the regrets
Memories that we have to live again & share
I know everything inside you
Be confident , everything's fine
Be confident , I'm calm
I rest in peace
Where I go
Be confident , it's OK ,
Be confident , I need it
& I break free , I'm finally free
I know the time , I know the hours , the spent nights
That dreams can't calm
I know the effort & the courage we have to find back
This memory we will have to live & continue
I know everything that belongs to you
Be confident , everything's fine
Be confident , I'm calm
I rest in peace
Where I go
Be confident , it's OK ,
Be confident , I need it
& Don't forget , don't forget
I'm here , I'm here
I'm here , here ..
Be confident , everything's fine
Be confident , I'm calm
I rest in peace
Where I go
Be confident , it's OK ,
Be confident , & be sure
Wherever you are , I keep an eye on you
My brother


Love & Light
