two years ago I lost not only my best friend but my heart and soul I lost Daddies baby angel girl .... I never thought at that point I'd ever think about another little yorkie as everyone told me get another I thought that was terrible awful I thought I'd never have another then to the one year date my wife came home and told me her friend was getting two 5 month old yorkies one a girl and the other alittle boy and ask if I would want the little boy and at first I said no no way and then I finally said well I'd like to see him and I did and from the get go that little boy wanted me wouldn't leave me alone even when I wanted him to ......... I felt so guilty but that little boy wanted me just like my little girl I'd lost wanted me from the beginning I had to take him ......... I would have never dreamed of wanting another and it finally game to me that by getting another I was not diminishing what I had with my Roxee no its not she will always have a place in my heart that nothing or no one will ever have but this little boy and u have no idea how many times I've had to stop writing to deal with him lol but just know I had to look at a vet and tell her it was ok to put my baby girl to sleep and then feel her put her chin in the bend of my arm and her last breath go I know what that's like and I beg u if your faced with that please be there with them we owe that to them they deserve it and if anyone has had to given up their baby and need someone to listen to I'm here God Bless My baby Roxee baby girl daddy loves you and will be at that bridge for you

I'm so sorry at the loss of your baby Roxee but am happy to hear you have found a little love to help heal your heart. I have always believed that you can never replace the one you have lost but I believe that bringing in a new little family member will be just what it takes to help ease the terrible pain of that loss. I always stay with my pet till they take that last breath as I know they would never abandoned me.

How wonderful you have opened your heart to another baby. There is no such thing as "replacing" a lost love, they each have their own little personalities, little quirks. New babies help us heal, not make us forget the one we lost. Roxee will remain always in you heart, new baby will fill that empty hole in your heart. When I had to put down my last girl at age 17 y/o I was devastated, I swore no more dogs, I have lost several, it never gets easier, I am getting older, the pain of losing a beloved friend, companion has become to over whelming for me. Then an unplanned adoption, a gift to me from my vet, a little 2.5 y/o little boy 6 weeks after my Matese had to leave me. I am blessed to have him in my life, soon it will be 2 years we are together.
I have held my past babies in my arms when they had to be released from pain they were suffering and nothing else could be done for them, it was always so extremely hard for me, the worst thing ever I had to do in life, but I could not let them suffer, I always held them secure in my arms, close to my heart, whispered in their ear momma loves her good girl while the tech injected them and ended their pain and lives. I will always, as hard as it is, be there at the end for them, to comfort and say good to them, for them to pass in the arms of the momma they loved, trusted and felt safe with.
Enjoy this new little life you have welcomed into your heart and home, he will give back so much love and laughter and yes, some hair pulling out as well lol, but so worth it...
Please keep us posted on this baby's new new with you....Good luck

My deepest sympathies over the loss of your sweet girl Roxee. Roxee knew that she was loved and that is what mattered most to her, to any of us. They fill up our hearts and our hearts expand with the love we receive. I know she would be sad to know how sad and hurt you are. Buster always tries to cheer me up when I am sad. I think she would be happy to know that the love she brought into your life did not end when she went to the rainbow bridge but continued on and was shared with a new Yorkie.
Best wishes with your new Yorkie boy.
I love this poem shared here on YT.
I Havenít Left At All
I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh.
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I havenít left at all.
On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path Iíve seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.
At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said itís just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured Iím really there, my spiritís left behind.
I know your heart is hurting; itís like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you wonít see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
Itís really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heavenís gate.
"The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything."

I am so happy you opened your heart to another yorkie, sound's like he is Daddy's boy. It is so sad when a decision to put a beloved pet to sleep has to me made, but I think it is the most unselfish act one will ever do for a pet because you are putting their need for peace above your need for their companionship. When I lost my last boy I said no more, my heart can not take another loss, but like you almost exactly a year to the date I lost my boy I felt that I missed the pitter patter of four little feet around my house. I now have Lola and she is so different from my other pups and my life and my husband's life is so much better because of her. My mother asked me why I would take a chance and put myself in the situation to eventually face another loss, but after thinking about it I realize that just one year with Lola would be worth any of the pain I will eventually feel, so far it's been over 4 years and I love her more each day, so hopefully there are many more days ahead for us, but when the time comes, like you, I will be there with her holding her in my arms.
