Default Merry Christmas Darling ♥

On Friday October 14th, after a long family battle with Chronic Renal Failure, we lost our beloved Darling ~ Baby Gizmo. He was my most cherished friend, confidant, teacher, son & love. My heart and soul. It was so difficult to see you go. You deserved to go quietly and not in pain. Never crying ~ ever and to cry so much at the end broke Mommy's heart and Daddy's too. We all tried my love, especially you. Thank you for 14 amazing years...I hope I was as good to you as you were to me but I know that is not completely true. I was a coward at the end and I hope you forgive me. You are forever in my soul and I miss you terribly every day. I love you boo...my little pooh-bear♥ Until we meet again I hope you have a beautiful Christmas with family and friends and continue to check in once in a while. No more needles, no more pain - Just love, light & joy - the things you always gave me...I love you Darling Puppy ♥

Sharon, what a beautiful tribute to your beloved little boy. My heart broke when I read this, and I am still crying from it. You gave Gizmo your love, care, devotion, and heart. He knew how much his Mommy loved him, and you always will. I have a photo of Ashley cuddled in her blanket just like Gitmo taken the night before she died. You are right about what these precious babies bring to our lives. They enrich our lives, give us so much love, and bring such joy to us. Even in their passing, we always feel their love. I hope you can feel Gitmo around you today and that it is beautiful for you.

You and your family loved with your heart and that is all any pet desires. I know in my heart that your beloved dog will always have a place in your heart. May the spirit of Christmas be with you today and may you find peace in the coming days.

You brought tears to my eyes. That was really beautifully expressed. I am so sorry for your loss but happy too for the 14 wonderful years you shared with Darling. RIP little one.

I am so sorry for your loss. My heart aches for you. You wrote such a beautiful tribute to Baby Gizmo. To have had 14 loving years with him was such a blessing, although I know it wasn't long enough. I know you will miss him each day, but take comfort in all of the happy memories the two of you created with each other and let it bring smiles and happiness to you. He will forever be with you in your heart. Rest in peace, Baby Gizmo.

Sharon, that was really beautiful, but heartbreaking. I know you miss him terribly, but they are only lent to us for a short time. I'm sorry. Perhaps Gizmo is up there playing with my lil Muffin.

I'm doing a little reading thatís not work related, and some or it is related to loss. I purchased the book Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Loverís Story of Joy and Anguish over a year and a half ago, since it was so highly recommended. At the time, Ashley was still alive, and although she was still active, she was almost seventeen and had been suffering from confusion due to dementia. I wasnít expecting to or prepared to lose her, but I knew the time would come one day, Iím hoping it will be therapeutic, but I know itís going to hurt a lot to read.

I read some stories in the loss section of Chicken Soup For The Soul: What I Learned From The Dog. Each story ripped apart my heart, but yet my heart was also warmed by reading the stories. I found a few quotes in the book that you might identify with. I hope they donít cause you any more pain. I donít want to torture myself, but I also donít want to deny the feelings that I have because the love is so powerful and I need to keep it alive in my heart. I donít see any problem there, though. From losing my beautiful little angels, the feelings that I have are so deep in my heart and the love is so overflowing and strong. I know it will remain with me as long as I am alive.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.Ē Kahlil Gibran

Pleasure is the flower that passes, remembrance the lasting perfume. Jean de Boufflers

There are things that we donít want to happen but have to accept,
things we donít want to know but have to learn,
and those we canít live without but have to let go. Author Unknown

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.Ē Clyde Campbell

ďMaybe part of loving is learning to let go.Ē From the TV show The Wonder Years

The book that Iíve read that most reminds me of my little babies is Antoine de St. Exuperyís The Little Prince. It is a very short fable that I read in French when I was in high school. It has been translated to English on two different occasions and it is a very beautiful and powerful allegory which teaches about love, responsibility, and friendship. A little prince leaves his planet because he becomes exasperated with his rose. He believes she is unique in the entire world, but he has trouble coping with her being so vain and self-centered. In how own life, St. Exuperyís wife was who he was having the rose symbolize. He had a troubled relationship with his wife, but he loved her dearly, nonetheless. Although I love the story of the rose, I donít identify with these parts of the story. I did deeply identify with the story of the rose when the little prince comes to earth and finds an entire field of roses. Thinking that his rose lied to him, the little prince was crushed when he came across this garden. The prince learns later that it is the time he has spent loving, protecting, and caring for his rose that makes her unique in the entire world. The other roses looked like his rose, but he hadnít developed that bond with the other roses, so they didnít have the same meaning for him. I was reading this book with my high school English students, and I was so deeply moved, even more than I had in the past, because I had lost Kiwi and soon after that Gracie during the time. When I read it again, I also think of trying to hold on tight with Ashley, giving her 24 hour care, always devoted to show her how much we loved her and to make her feel safe. Itís amazing that, even with her dementia, she was responsive with us, and she knew we loved her and she loved us, too. There are some more beautiful stories in the book: the taming of the fox and when the pilot and the little prince have to say goodbye because he has to return to his rose. Thereís so much to this short little ďChildrenís bookĒ which is also read and studied at the university level. If you ever have a couple of hours to spare, Iíd suggest you read it. Itís not a dog story, but still itís a story of love and friendship. It is the most widely read book in the world, with the exception of the bible. My niece recently bought me a beautiful pop-up version of the book, which makes the story come alive even more.

I wish I could do anything to ease your pain. Please know that I care and understand how you feel. If you ever want to talk, just let me know. I can tell by your posts just how special you are, and your new little boy is very lucky to have you as his mommy. I really hope he brings you lots of love, joy, and laughter.
