So sorry for your loss. Patsy sounds like a wonderful girl, so fortunate to have had so many great years with her and her with you.

What a beautiful life you gave Patsy. I'm so sorry for your loss. We've said goodbye to about half a dozen Golden's that I remember, and I carry a piece of them with me always, but it never gets easier. Her memories over time will bring you more joy than sadness.

"You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp."~Anne Lamott

Losing a Golden is gut-wrenching. You never get over it. You have probably experienced people greeting your Golden only to tear up and tell you about the loss of their own Golden.

Patsy clearly had a wonderful life with you.

Our Golden was recently diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma. He's only 4. We are still in disbelief. We've lost many dogs in our lives, but they were always seniors.

I hope your other dog will comfort you in your grief. Know that there is another dog out there that needs you and be glad for the years she was a part of your family. Thank you for sharing her and for the wonderful pictures.

I love your message. I am sure that my heart will be open to another Golden. I am still really missing Patsy and I remain surprised at how my heart hurts. We got her ashes back on Thursday last week and I put them in my office, with her favorite (and first) squeeky toy.

I hope the appointment was a good one. Thank you again.

So sorry

I am so sorry. I had to let my Valerie go Saturday. So sad. But I loved every minute that she was with me. Our tears will turn to smiles someday. In the meantime, my sad heart is with you.
