Thanks everyone...I found that last night when I couldnt sleep....it made sense to me....except I cant seem to deal with it...I couldnt even drag myself into work today....it hurts too much.

Tabitha seems to have figured things out and is really needy right now. We had a little sleep together this morning but she has be really vocal calling for her borther....the vet said she will likely grieve him to since they were together all their life.

That was sweet of the clinic to send the flowers, Winston

And what a lovely poem that is!

Still thinking of you mf. The healing process is different for each of us. Stay busy. It does help. Soon you will remember your boy with smiles. Not tears.

Winston, I'm so very sorry. My heart breaks.

You did your best and so much more. Bomber had a wonderful, joyous life.
He passed from this world knowing the greatest love, in your arms.

His spirit will forever be in your heart. He will patiently wait, free of pain
and suffering.

Fly free sweet angel.

Gentle comfort to you.

Oh my, I'm just reading this now. Winston I am so very sorry that you lost your beloved Bomber. It hurts so much when we lose them but as time passes you will be able to smile at all the wonderful memories of your dear boy.

The poem was beautiful as are the gifts from Sylvie .....she is such a caring person and a great friend indeed.

She is awesome and thats all there is too it! BLAH!

Rainbow thank you so much for the kind words! It has been just over a month now and I am still a mess but trying to place my priorities in Tabitha at the moment! Day by day is how I am looking at things. But truely we loose a piece of our hearts when we love our babies!

I actually talk to Bomber everyday and tell him how much I love him and miss him! I know I am nuts...But I am okay with being nuts!

It would have been much more difficult without the kindness of friends and members here!

Stop that. You are not nuts. I believe our loved ones are always watching over us and they listen to us when we speak to them.
