It's Been 13 Months, and I Still Miss Him

I just went to the door to call my 2 girls in, and I called his name instead of that of my youngest female...

Still miss you big buddy!

I know, I know...Yesterday I was reversing into my driveway past my living room windows and I got the sensation that Gator was about to start his welcome home bark. As I turned off my van, I gave my head a shake and thought wow...where did that come from.
It's been just over 14 months.
I still open my apt. door cautiously, like he is going to run out (he never did, but there was always a risk if a cat went by at that moment), or as though he is right behind and don't want to hit him.
...and I still cry on occasion.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

I just put my boy down today, and I'm sure that I'm going miss him 13 months from now. Probably 13 years from now! I feel your pain.

It reminds me of a saying I read, probably here somewhere. To have a dog like this there are many many really great days and one really bad day. ((hugs))

I am so sorry. I understand I had to let my Lucky go 14 months ago. I still cry.

The pain never leaves! I lost Risen Star June 2, 2003 and the pain is as fresh as the day I lost him.


My deepest sympathy to all that have recently lost their dogs.

I'm so sorry. I don't know that it ever goes away, but it gets tolerable. I'm coming up on 2 years without Sage. I've called Scarlet "Sage" more than once lately. She's always with me. ❤️
