I agree with everything everyone has said. When don't we miss them?

It is just so hard, not knowing or knowing, we had that last night quiet and dark, all 3 of us crying, knowing that no time for a miracle and with every second past we are getting closer to final good bye. Just remembering that night, listening to him breathing and just knowing makes me cry now again.

Thinking of you, I know that beautiful Buddy was your world. I miss Daisy all the time. I would give anything just to have her back to give her one last hug, I don't think I'd ever be able to let her go though, she gave the best cuddles.

I miss her most when I can see Sammy doing something that she would do (it also makes me smile though). I also miss her at christmas/birthdays as she went crazy for the wrapping paper! All the time really. It would have been so lovely for Daisy and Sammy to have been here together, as I guess you wish that Buddy and Charlie could have met.

They are in our hearts forever. I like to keep remembering our precious goldens that have gone, it helps to keep their memories alive. Sending you hugs.

It's the same for me. Nights. I just can't sleep. That's when that last week keeps replaying over and over. What could I have done differently...

I miss him all the time but that moment when I 1st get home and he's not there to greet me with a toy in his mouth is the hardest. He was always So happy to see me. No one is/was ever that happy to see me. That's the most difficult time for me. Then the empty evenings and long nights when I have time to think.

I think I miss tickel time the most, most nights after my daughters went to bed, I would approach him laying on the floor, he knew what was coming. I would slowly laydown in front of him and begin by tickeling the hairs between him front tows, he would pull his feet under his chest, then it was wisker time!! I would just lightly rub his wiskers and he would soft mouth my finger, then the feet, back and forth for 1/2 hour or so. Then of course it would end with a good rub down pet and he would fall asleep, sometimes so would I. He was such a puppy even when at the prime old age of 13, I miss him every single day!!!

Sitting at work and looking down at my sweater, finding a hair of my girl's. I hold it in my hand and just want to cry - but it's been over 6 weeks - and now I'm starting to notice that instead I'm finding comfort in knowing both my girls are with me still.

I wake up in the morning and still reach over to pet Dixie like I did every morning. She would wait patiently by the side of the bed ready to love on me when I woke up. I still feel her presance in the morning and I try to use that as positive throughout my day now.
