My Sweet Opal


Recommended Posts

Thank you ALL for your words and prayers on my post in Health and Medical (I am a blubbering mess) at three this morning.


At 11:10 this morning, Opal went to the bridge :( I have her collar with all her tags hanging from my rear-view mirror. She did more than she'll ever know for me - and I hope I was able to pay her back for that by getting rid of her pain. After she was gone I had the need to put her in a position that she would have layed in at home. I kissed her goofy ears a million more times and smelled her feet for the last time. The smell of her feet is THE GREATEST smell ever - grass and dirt. I wish I could have bottled that up :( Before we went to the doctor I made a print of her nose and one of her feet. I am going to get them tattooed on me somewhere. I have a bunch of flowers on my arm and I think I might put her nose amongst them.


I had a hard time back at home with pieces of her everywhere, but her not there. :( I am trying my best to remember her good times... like last night. After I cried - A LOT - I got back in bed and made her cuddle with me. I think her and the cat have been hanging out too much because after a bit she got up and turned around so I had to snug with her butt :blush then I told her if she farted I'd kick her butt... so what does she do - fart :blink: What a turd! Everytime we would have our talks (about anything) her nose would start to get runnier - I am going to miss her boogers - all over my arms and my legs - That is the reason I always called her Booger :unsure


Opal - when you left a piece of my heart left, too. I love you and your bratty sister has been sleeping where you bed was. She misses you too - no matter what she says :) I will see you again! I know you are chasing squirrels and snapping at flies where you are. Keep an eye on me because the rest of my life will never be the same. I love you!!

I am so sorry. :( I know how much you are hurting and I wish that there was something I could say or do to make you feel better. I really don't think that time heals all wounds but it does make it more tolerable. My sympathy and prayers. Another beautiful Angel graces the heavens tonight...Godspeed...Run free and swiftly sweet Opal and kiss Angel Sophia for me. :grouphug:f_pink:f_whitef_yellow

Oh my.


How sad. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Saying goodbye to our 4 footed friends is never easy. You gave Opal the gift of love when you send her to the Bridge. She is no longer in pain and she is smiling down upon you thanking you for everything you did for her. Soon your tears will dry and you will have many greyt memories of your dear Opal. She will ALWAYS be with you in spirit.


Godspeed Opal.

From your post it is so obvious the love you both shared. What a beautiful thing. Hang on to the memories. Opal wants you to be happy. I know it is so hard to let your best friend go. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. Look to the skies tonight, it will be brighter!

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is so very hard to come home and have them not there. The house just feels so empty. We feel your pain.

I am crying with you as I read your post. I thought about you both all day.


May God bless you and heal your broken heart. You and Opal shared a love that will always remain.


When you are feeling up to it, will you post a picture of her? You will be in my prayers.
