You own my soul
It has been 7 months almost to the day since I lost you.

I still cry myself to sleep, and every morning my heart breaks again when my sleepy hand finds your empty bed. I have good days, and bad ones. The reality of your loss hits me at strange times.
I cannot believe I ever thought I didn't want you. I am so eternally grateful that you knew better, that you never gave up on me. Wait for me beautiful, until we walk together again.

Sabi was the bravest dog I ever met. In every way that counted she was the ultimate dog. When I brought her home for my husband, a tiny six week old puppy with ancient eyes, she waged an all out battle for possession of my heart. She won. She was mine heart and soul to the day she died, and I was hers. Saboteur, my beautiful warrior. Unfailing work ethic, unwavering loyalty, unstoppable heart.
I tried to save her, I really did. I would have done anything, given anything for just a few weeks, days, minutes more. She saved my life, she never failed me and in the end there was nothing I could do but hold her. I still feel her presence, but I cannot see her or touch her and it is the loss of that that shreds my heart.

Not one day goes by that I don't miss her desperately. I hear people talking about their heart dogs and I smile, Sabi owns my soul.

Reading this made me go back and look at photos of my ONE. Thank you.

I am sorry for your loss :( I am sure Sabi will be with you forever.

Your words have opened a very old but tender scar on my own heart and soul. Please believe me, there are others who feel what you feel, suffer what you suffer.

Sabi is still watching over you. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Beautifully expressed :) Your Sabi is still with you... you just can't see her is all. And with a soul to soul connection, there is no need to see each other with your eyes.

Thank you all. I know we all go through this and Shepherdmom I know you just did very recently. I appreciate you all taking the time to let me tell you about Sabi, she was one in a million.

I keep waiting for it to stop hurting and I sometimes find it easier to cope if I can write. Please forgive me if I ramble.

You don't have to apologize for still loving her. I still get teary eyed over Pyrate when I look at his pictures on the wall and it has been a couple years almost. The hurt doesn't stop but you find a way to live with it. I just count on that day when I go to the Rainbow Bridge and all my fur kids are there. I know it will be a crowd of them and we will play again.

Sorry for your loss. Sabi sounds like a very special dog that will always be in your heart. Wishing you beautiful memories of your sweet Sabi.
