@ChuckNorris:  Crying is ALWAYS an option…and I don’t care where I am…I’ve done it everywhere, because if you hold that shit in, it festers!  If I had been in the UPS store with you, I would have hopped over that counter and cried with you, but that’s just me…if someone is crying, I’m joining in, I love a good cry.

I have lost some of the best dogs to ever roam this Earth, and I understand that the circumstances aren’t exactly the same, but the finality of it is…and it’s not something you get over, it just gets easier….

I’ve been out walking the 99 boys, and had someone ask if they can pet one of them, we start talking, they tell me about their lab, greyhound…pyrenese…whatever and before you know it we’re having a big cry fest in the park while they hug my dogs and white knuckle through the pain…but that’s ok, it’s part of the human experience, and I’d rather hurt to hell and back than feel nothing at all, because that means I’m not really alive anymore.

You’ll be ok, and your baby will be ok too….hang onto each other, it’s more than enough!

My heart goes out to you!! I would die if somebody ever took away my puppy. She is my child, my teacher, and my best friend.

Hugs to you!! make sure you go easy on yourself and do something nice for you.

I’m so sorry. πŸ™ When I left my ex boyfriend, I’d been around the dog from day 1 for nearly 4 years, living with him and borderline obsessively loving him, and every time I thought about the idea that I’d never see the dog again, I freaking LOST MY SHIT. Tears, snot, mascara cheeks and all. It got easier as time went on, but if I come across a picture, I still can get teary eyed and it’s been nearly 5 years since I moved out!

Didn’t mean to ramble…but yeah, it’s okay to cry. Let it out. And hang in there, it’ll get better.

@ChuckNorris:  I’m so sorry, hun.  Losing a pet in any way is so incredibly difficult.  Time will make it easier.  I know you don’t want to think about this now….but once some time passes, it *might* help you to get another dog (maybe even a lab) down the road.  Just a thought…and one that I’m sure you’re not ready to consider right now.  Either way, I’m sorry you’re going through this, and you’re still in my thoughts.

@ChuckNorris:  Here’s the boy that mends those tattered shreds life rips out of us….Simba is the DUMBEST dog on Earth…unless someone needs that extra something…then for a brief and shining moment, he’s an intuitive and gentle creature leading someone confidently through the figurative brambles and back onto the path…then it all just fades away, and he’s a lunkhead again…for whatever it’s worth…maybe he works long distance….and he’s great for hangovers too…

@ChuckNorris:  I’m sorry honey πŸ™ The pain doesn’t go away, but feeling it becomes like a part of life and you sort of get used to it. We gave our boxer away to a good friend when my family moved from England to Canada. He was 12 and not in the best of health when we emmigrated, so it was unfair to put him through the stress of the trip and the bouncing around we did between family when we landed. I can tell you that to this very day I cannot think about the last day I had with him without crying – which is what I’m doing now as I type. Time does make it easier in some ways though. Remember that no matter the distance, you are her mama, and your souls will be tied together for ever.
XOXOXOX Much love and hugs, lovey! XOXOXOXOX

@ChuckNorris:  (((HUGS)))  It will get easier, I promise.  What happened today was part of the grieving process and you will always miss your Ali.  Things will remind you of her and you’ll wish she was with you.  But, over time, those sad moments will also be paried with the wonderful memories of the moments you shared and the moments you cherish.  Through the heart break you will also celebrate the wonderful dog she was to you.  But, it sucks.  FWIW, I’m a year into owning a rescue that I’m hopeless in love with.  Whenever I think of her not being around (which is almost daily) I get choked up.  When I see another dog that’s a similar breed, my heart leaps.  It will likely be that way for you for a while and that’s ok.  Allow yourself to cry and mourn the loss of your baby.  And, I’m sorry you couldn’t keep both dogs.  πŸ™  Any chance your ex would turn her back to you??

Oh boy. Losing your doggy in any way is horrible. Cry it out sister, cry it out. Are you considering getting another (different & not replacing) baby? I know some people need time but I’m just curious if that’s your plan. Anyway, you’re going through A LOT- take it easy on yourself. And we will take care of you.

I’m so sorry πŸ™ I BAWLED the day my ex took our cat. I was furious, even though I agrees to let him have him since he wasn’t child-friendly. It took awhile, and a lot of tears, to move on. But you will with a soft spot for her always. It just won’t have that sharp edge. Crying is important! It’s part of the grieving you have to do.

I’m so sorry you are going through this. I know the pain of losing a pet, although not this way. But I found crying and ice cream, lots of ice cream, coma inducing ice cream (and cake) helped to ease the pain. 

((Big Hug))!
