It will be a year on Monday that Travis was pts. One whole year since I kissed him goodbye as he lay dying. If I could preform miracles I would bring you back, only if you could be healthy again. I miss you every passing day, although time does heal a little more each day, I shall never forget the love that you gave us. Rest in peace my beautiful boy. This is one of the last pictures taken of Travis just a few days before his death.

I don't think you ever get over it when you lose one of your babies. It does get better with time and you relive the wonderful memories often. My current little guy will do something that reminds me of this one, or that one. Maybe, it's a memory that I had forgotten but it'll suddenly be there and I just have to give Den-Den an extra hug. Then, I'll read something like this thread, and the tears flow again because it freshens the memory of what it was like to lose them and again, I have to give Den-Den another hug! But, the good memories far outweigh the pain. That's why I have Den-Den! I can't imagine my life without a furry baby in it! We all know how you feel!

My Barney passed away on Jan 15 2001... Kuma ( My new GSD ) was Born on Jan 22nd 2003.. I still call Kuma Barney all the time, and when Kuma gets rambunctious, I ask Barney's spirit to guide Kuma because I feel that since the dates of death and birth are so close... Barney's angel will guide Kuma
You never ever forget them, I had two beautiful dogs, one a sheltie and the other Barney... Heinz 57, and I have their picture on my wall with the front cover of a card that has a poem on it "Good bye my sweet pet "
It's like loosing a kid ( although I have none ) but would feel it the same.
You never forget them..

So sorry for the loss of your beloved Travis. Stories like that bring tears to my eyes every time.
I lost the first dog I ever owned on March 24, 2001. I decided a few weeks later to get another dog and decided on an Austrialian Shepard. Then I found (or they found me) a litter of pups born on March 24, 2001!!! I knew it was my Quasa coming back to me. My new dog, Tiber, who is now almost 4, is everything Quasa was and more! I totally believe they come back to you in some way.
Although we don't have them physically anymore, they are always there in spirit! :)

I grieve every day for my bunny - the best bunny ever!! - and I know what you are going through! I know it is easy to say but think of all the good times you had with him! :grouphug:

My deepest condolences :grouphug: I know from experience as well what it is like to lose a well loved pet and still miss him/her years later.

Remind me to never read topics in this particular forum again if I want to keep my makeup from running.
My deepest condolences to those who have lost their loved ones...I dread the day that my kitties pass on, but thankfully I have many years left with them. My childhood cat died a few years ago and I remember being devastated...God did a really good job in creating dogs/cats/birds/ferrets/whatever, my only complaint is that He didn't program to live long enough! heh.
Excuse me while I go hug/kiss my kitties!

Thanks Guys its been really hard the last few days, but my pup Tucker helps keep my mind off of it a little, as he is so busy its hard to keep up to him. He is a godsend.Here is a pic of Travis at happier times. This is how I like to remember him.

What a handsome boy he was, he looks pretty happy to me that is a sure sign of how good you were to him. Your puppy I am sure helps a lot and surely keeps you on the go. Just remember he pain free running and playing with all our other dearly departed pets having a great time and we will see them again I believe
