I am sure it was a big party at the Bridge today. All our goldens were there as my Buddy was always friend with everyone, he was just that a great buddy.

It’s insanely beautiful how I can feel his presence some days. Couple nights ago I was on computer when I felt hard push on my leg, it was time for walk so I was "ok Charlie 2 more minutes and we are going" and I looked around to see Charlie at least 10 feet away laying comfortably and watching thru the window. No way he could move there in a fraction of a second I moved my eyes from computer to my leg so I know it was my Buddy. I feel warmth in my heart knowing he is still around in some ways.

I'm glad you keep wishing Buddy happy birthday. It's encouraging at this time but also heartbreaking.

This morning I was woken up with Charlie’s wet kisses and the radio playing song “…it has been a long day without you my friend…”. Seven years (today) long day for me.

My dear Buddy,
I still miss you and think of you every day.
What a blessing was to have you! I am deeply honoured and thankful for your presence in my life and our travel together on this bumpy road called life. Thank you for having your way into my heart and making world better place (for me). And thank you for your help in finding a better me too.
I miss seeing you every day but I feel you are still here with me, locked in my heart forever. Your sweet, gentle, golden spirit keeps living in your brother Charlie. Charlie is your legacy, continuity of everything good in life. For years he was patiently picking up shattered pieces of my broken heart to put them together and he did. Every time I look at his eyes I see you there too. Every touch of his soft fur reminds me on you. I love him so much. He made my heart grows bigger and didn’t take away any of my love for you.
I miss you so much “…it has been a long day without you my friend, and I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again…”

See you again!

Love you forever,
Your mom

I have a lump in my throat, Buddy of course will always have a special place in my heart, I so hope he's at the bridge with my Barnaby because I'm certain they'd be best friends. Hugs to you Velinka, and more for Charlie too x

So sad reading your post, I am sat here in tears. I still miss my first retriever and struggle to mention his name without welling up, 5 years on. They are the best friends you could ask for xx

Thank you my friend, your boy will always be dear to me too. I am sure they are the best friends at The Bridge, playing and patiently waiting for us.

Yes they are the best. To have such a special friend in your life is a privilege and I hope I earned that privilege. I have many beautiful memories of my Buddy to make me smile but I still shed tears for him too. As Frodo says in Lord of the Rings "There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep… that have taken hold."

Thinking of you as you think of your Buddy. I know your pain all too well as we share the same loss. Having moments of sadness that sneak in every now and then is normal. The ebbs and flows of life. Buddy wants you to make the most of you day.

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal, and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Happy 17th Birthday my sweet Buddy!

Happy17th Birthday my sweet Buddy!

I still miss you so much! Yet again I have to learn how to live with another great loss. Hope you found grandma there. Sadly she never wanted to listen when I talked about you but hope now when she met you she will understand why my love for you is so deep and how much you meant to me. Lately, my life is like a deep ocean. I feel I am an empty shell while huge waves are tossing me around and strong currents are pulling me down but with help of your little brother Charlie and my dear golden friend Sarah who I met on this forum and who is checking on me daily and sending hugs I am getting inch by inch closer to shore.

You go now, celebrate and have fun with your friends and keep watching over me until we meet again.

Love you and miss you forever!

Your mom
