My condolences to you on the loss of your friend. Over the years I have lost many, most recently Boomer, a stray who adopted me about 8 years ago or so. Like many of us, our pets are family and I prefer mine to people in general.

I cannot tell you it gets better, just that a scab grows over a wound that never fully heals. When my pets pass away I am fortunate enough to be able to have them cremated and put into urns which will be interred into the family plot. I also have a calendar of them made to remind of them. We all deal with our loss in different ways but I do wish you the best.

Thanks, to everyone here. Means more than you'd imagine.

The house feels...empty now. When I woke up, I wanted to call the dog through the front door, only there was no dog anymore. The evening feels out of the ordinary, because there's no dog to take for an evening walk anymore. But you know the feeling. Some of you went through it many times. For me, it's the second time that I have to cope with the death of my dog.

In the meantime, I'm taking no break from the forums. If there are laughs to have, I'll have some, because I need some. In the days to come, I'll go on with my usual sense of humour, or at least I'll try. Got to find something to do, because anything beats just sitting around and giving in to thoughts of loss. Life goes on, and death or not, the next day the Sun is gonna rise in the East as it always does, I'm gonna go to work as I usually do, and once I get back from it, I'll have a glass of whisky as I sometimes do.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

Man, you got me. Good thing you guys can't see me right now.

Dude, our thoughts are going to be with you throughout this. Trust me brother, it's all so fucking hard. Your first statement just brought back some memories for me. I guess we just have to remember how lucky we have had it to have such amazing friends in our lives like our dogs are. I always call it "the rhythm" - having a dog in your life is a lifestyle, and once things change, the Rhythm gets all messed up. Believe me, I know. We're with ya, man.

Thanks for this, Alain... Wish I could find the right words now, but there really aren't any fit to thank you and the others enough for the support you've shown me over these last two days.

I’m sorry to hear this. Really sorry. Words always escape me when I hear of the passing of a pet, but I don’t imagine my words could be good enough to help you in this time of pain.
In memory of TB/Phfluff, since he isn’t here to continue to give his praise, I will share it for him.
