    For those who truly love their pets It hurts, it hurts to the point of real pain and most of us will know exactly how you feel, right now, all I can say is that it will eventually get better with the passing of time and you will remember all the good times and never forget them.

    My sincerest sympathies for your loss of Oliver, your post has certainly hit a nerve with me today.

    So very sorry
    MESSAGE TO A FRIEND
    -------------------

    I miss you so much; my four-legged friend
    I ask myself each day; if the pain will ever end
    Your loss is so hard; for one person to bear
    because we were a team; an inseparable pair

    You were by my side; when I got up each day
    waiting so patiently; to go out and play
    You were there each night; when I got home
    waiting to go to the park; where you could roam

    You always knew; if I was having a bad day
    so you'd snuggle up close; and try to get me to play
    If that didn't work; you'd put your head in my lap
    then make yourself comfortable; and take a nap

    One way or another you; would brighten my day
    like only you could; you had a special way
    You gave me a lifetime; of memories to hold
    through all the years ahead; till I'm gray and old

    I promise I'll see you; again one day
    when we'll be together again; to go run and play
    Your loss is a cross; I will just have to bear
    because you and I know; we're an inseparable pair

    That's so beautiful Aileen, thank you so much for sharing.

    Chelsey, I am so sorry that you had to say goodbye to your beautiful friend, but so glad that you got some time to spend with him before he had to leave you for another place. You will meet up again - wherever they go. Meanwhile, my heart goes out to you and your parents.
    Warmest wishes

    thankyou for all your replies. It was nice to come back and share with people who truly understand what its like to loose such a special friend.
    Ive been down with strept throat since the day we let him go, I had to be off work for 48 hours which i guess was a good thing all around. gave me time to cry.
    It still seems so weird to me..like ill show up at my grandmas and he'll be laying there in front of the fire place or something.

    i was here a lot in 2007 when i was over seas and away from my baby. and i kept saying how ..i missed my family yeah..but i missed my dog ALOT. id go running up to strangers on the street who had cavaliers and tell them "i have one of those at home in canada" and theyd let me pet their dogs and talk a bit about our cavaliers.
    i bought a stuffed tri cavalier in a toy store in dublin..just because i was missing him so much. slept with it every night untill ig ot back home to him.
    Dug that stuffy outa storage this weekend and am holding him tight again.

    it had been a long time since i seen him smile, really smile. i know we did the right thing. watching him that final day..his breathing..the way he struggled to lie down.

    i just cant help but ..when lying home alone in my fits of tears cry out i want him back.

    we lost our cat of 13 years..a year and a half ago..It was one of the lowest of hte lows..dark dark times and i know time heald that slowly as will this but..outa all the bad thigns that have happened in the last 2 years (and theres been a lot..its been a rough two years) losing max had been the hardest. and now we're right back there again with olvier.

    it just sucks. alot.
    Oliver and Max and Meeko man, i will meet you at the Rainbow bridge. I love you all. Miss you more then you'll ever know.
    wait for me...
    Chelsea
