New Year's Eve Without Oakley

2012 started as an amazing year for us - I ran my 1st half marathon at the age of 55, we moved to our home at the lake, I retired from my totally stressful job and went to work for a more leisurely not to mention appreciative employer, Seger and all of his health issues are well managed, and then wham! November 23rd we lost Oakley to hemangio - suddenly and unexpectedly. I am trying to focus on the positive - he did not suffer, we were able to be with him until the end, we held him and talked to him while he crossed the Bridge .... but I am so sad......
I never in a million years thought I would be without Oakley - Seger is here destroying the 7th tennis ball we have given him in the last week. He seems to be lost without Oakley. DH and I are so sad. We can't wait to have Oakley back with us. Today I bought a nice frame to put Oak's picture in, and a beautiful lamp that will forever burn beside him. I guess we are doing everything that grieving people do and I hope at some point I find peace. I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. I hope and pray a year from now I am watching Seger destroy yet another tennis ball. Hug your fur kids tonight - I would give anything to be able to hug Oakley just one more time.
Carol

I cannot imagine your grief, but hope that, in time, thinking of Oakley brings a smile before tears. Thank you for the reminder to pass on the love.

oh my Gosh I can imagine what you are going thru right now. I just had a long play with Rose and looked at all the 3 goldens & 1 mutt pics on the wall, as if they were sort of approving of our play - at least I like to think so. Last year was much much harder as we just lost Jack on July 2011 and we were dog-less until this August.

Very good advice - "hug your fur kids tonight!" I hope for a Happy New Year to you and yours!

I also lost my 1st golden Tazz to hemangio. It also was so fast...it almost seemed like one day if was fine and the next he was dying. I am so sorry for you.

So very sorry for you and family. The title of your thread sent chills up my spine. I know all too well what is like to spend that first holiday or even opening the door without the proper greeting. My heart goes out to you.

I am so very sorry for your loss of your beautiful boy Oakley.. my heart breaks for you, as I am too deeply grieving the recent loss (Dec 7) of my sweet Mattie girl from this terrible illness of which I had never heard of until 4 weeks before we lost our girl .. I felt so helpless that I couldn't save her, but they knew how very much we love them.. The sadness is overwhelming, there are moments I feel I'm not going to get thru it .. I just try to take it minute by minute, never knowing when the grief will consume me.. I have received so much comfort from the kind golden family on this board ... you are in my thoughts and prayers...

Sweet beautiful Oakley, I'm so sorry this is such a sad time for you. The first days and holidays are always the hardest. I hope time will ease your pain and you will begin to smile when you think of your special boy.

Those are wonderful pictures of your boys Carol! I can see the soft expression in Oakley's face that I saw many times in my Rudder's eyes. We will keep them forever in hearts!
