    HI thank you for your excellent readings here… I had abby 3 my third old English sheepdog and I surrendered her to the shelter… I feel so sad it took me 2 weeks without her and really hit me. My father died sept 12 ,2017 and I was so sad and stressed out I for sure was not thinking straight.. now here I am feeling horrible I rehomed her.. I have some macaws I rescued and abby always wanted to go after the birds and she would of killed them I could not risk it… I had this dog since she was 8 weeks old I thought she will be fine if she grows up with the birds… she was not… Abby was 16 months old… and not slowing down.. I did it for Abby 🙁 I know she would get a family who loved her and maybe some kids she loved children to play with her.. she was a great girl but I had my birds for 14 years…. missing her terribly,… hope I will get over this losing my father and now abby.. it is close to 3 weeks without her now… It is like a death to me but I know it isn’t but still feels like it.. I will have to start to Pray about this…. really hit home past 3 days when I cleaned under my bed and found all of her favorite toys… 🙁 God Bless you all and good luck healing….

    This year my health has been bad and unfortunately i’m rehoming my 11th month old standard poodle and it brakes my heart so bad because i love her so much but i feel like i let her down and i’m disappointed in myself for not being able to give her the life she deserves so the family that is going to take her is picking her up tomorrow and i feel so bad and guilty but reading this really helped me understand that yes it hurts but she will be happy and knowing that she is happy is all that i want even if it’s not with me because she deserves that.

    Last year was filled with loss, fiancee, left me for a very rich woman on Valentine’s Day, my American oriental kitty Jasper, due to kidney failure, (he was the joy of my life.) A boyfriend due to health issues (surgery), a gentleman due to his ED, an old friend (deceased), the home I worked so hard to complete when husband of 28years was ill and died, this house I sold to please my fiancee. Loss of money, A dear friend that is moving to Mexico for a low cost life. A friend due to political differences. My heart is heavy, looking for joy. Loss is a learning journey. One that friends help u through the dark cloud.

    Bhola my male siamese spent 10 and a half beautiful years with us before crossing over to the Afterworld on 18th November. He slept with me, didn’t let me shout on phone, played with me, in short loved me.
    There is not a single moment when I don’t think about him. I know my Allah is helping me but am I making enough efforts? Can I let the beautiful 3780 days and nights spent with him let go?
    People advise me to have another cat. But who can replace Bhola?

    Hi Laurie,
    Thanks for your inspirational words.
    When my dog died I cried daily for a month, and I’m not a crying person!

    Getting another dog is a good idea in some cases, it may help the feeling of loss.

    I’ve lost two Rottweiler lady doggies – Tootsie and Cara.
    Although I’ve made peace with it, the feeling of loss will never go away.

    I’ve learned that that guilty feelings about the dog plays a major part in getting over it. So, appreciate and enjoy every moment with you beloved pet. Treat it the best you can so that you can know it’s had a good life once it’s gone. That’s the best you can do for you furrry friend.

    Somehow, after traipsing all over the internet I discovered yr site. I enjoy yr uplifting messages as I am nothing but a lost soul living in this crazy world. I think I should start to listen to podcasts too but first need to figure out how to. But keep sharing & caring – it does filter thru

    I am having a hard time leaving. My cockapoo Gunner is my baby but I am having a hard time finding an apartment that I can afford. I don’t like how my abuser treats him, yelling at him putting his hand up like he is going to hit him. Gunner sleeps with me and stays by my side all the time. I take a shower and both dogs are waiting for me outside the door. Brady the English bulldog has critical heart problems he will be 12 in Nov. I have PTSD Gunner immediately barks when my abuser comes near me when I am sleeping. He is my hero! I don’t think I can just leave him behind.
