The Card I got

All the time I try and keep my baby Coco off my mind cause I am fighting depression. But now and then I find I can't avoid it. She was my constant companion for 14 yrs. Everything I did, I considered how it would effect her. Just got my mail and a card was sent from the animal hospital of sympathy from the staff. Its been a month. So I am crying which I hate to do. People want to help you and they can't. nothing to be done. I always think of that song even though it has not been long by Dorothy Moore and it must be the saddest song in the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMONGMDEerI Mysti Blue

Pets are family members and mourned like any other family member. They live and are loved unconditionally

If you get those emotions out it will get easier for you. I don't think you ever truly get over such a loss, you just learn how to better deal with it. That is a sad song. Cry out deary and feel better.

it does help to a degree, but with COPD it is pretty hard breath through it and makes me feel so truly without hope or purpose in this world

@celticeagle that is what i am told. but i know people smokes that are my age and even one in her eighties and don't have this. i think it is just our genetics along with what is good and not good for an individuals body.

What a very thoughtful and sweet thing for the animal hospital to do! Our vets office did the same thing for us when we had to put Cricket down.

it was quite nice of them but did bring tears back to my eyes. she was my only companion especially at night. she slept above my head on her little pillow. a bad habit i did not realize i would so regret and miss.

@bunnybon7 I can relate as my two dogs sleep under the blanket with me, all snuggled up next to me.

You are right, sometimes it's better to let it go, you want to help, but your words and writings hurt more than the silence.

That was nice of them to send you the card. Sorry for your loss. Some peoples pets are like their kids because they can't have kids so their pets take the place of a child.

i had 5 kids. they are grown and my last hubby passed away. i had my first dog then as a companion. got coco then next and when i lost the first dog, i had her to get me through it all. now she was my baby and only companion. so yes thats true about making a pet your baby. lol

@Tina30219 yes many do that. i had a friend many years ago that did not have kids, got fixed so she would not have them. didn't want them but has had many pets treated like children by her. lol

That was great for them to do that. I know how much you miss Coco because I've had to do the same thing to two of my beloved pets. It was the hardest thing in the world to lose them.

i have lost others and it hurt and i cried a lot but she was my only companion now and saw me through so much for 14 yrs. so it is much harder , devastating with her. like a person to me. if not for my daughter i don't what i would do but she doesn't sleep with me at night like coco did.

@bunnybon7 I know what you mean. Rascal and Pip were more people than some people I know. They always slept in my room.
